Silicone caulk in expansion space (laminate in kitchen)?

Q: I just installed a laminate “click” glue-less floating floor in my kitchen and foyer. I left an expansion space of about 3/8′ on all sides. The place where I purchased the flooring suggested placing silicone caulk in the expansion space all the way around since the kitchen may be wet, which I did.

Now that I’ve done that, I’m worried that the silicone might not ‘give’ enough to allow for proper expansion. Should I remove it before I place the shoe mold?

A: I think I would check with the manufacturer on this one. Some products require such caulking in wet areas such as bathrooms.
