Will steaming paper off walls cause problems with wood floor install?

Hi folks,

I’m planning on laying solid wood oak boards on elastilon over tile. If I have boards sitting in the rooms they are to be installed in for 2/3 weeks beforehand and then I use a steamer to get the wallpaper off the walls – will I be able to lay the boards immediately after – or will the additional moisture I have created cause problems?

Also, I guess the bigger the expansion gap around the edges the better – but skirting is only going to cover up around 10mm or so. What do you do…
