Is it better to float or glue down an engineered wood floor over a cement floor that right now has a carpet on it that must be removed. The floor will have many heavy file cabinets on it and a lot of furniture on it.

Home Depot floated an engineered hardwood floor on a neighbor's slab so I do not see why all the installers that are giving me estimates want to use a moisture glue instead and tell me that they don't like to float floors in case the floor is not level.

Wanted a floated floor be softer to walk on?
