REPAIRING VINYL TILES WITH SELLEYS QUIK GRIP

Faye has a damaged vinyl floor that looks nasty but it turns out to be easy to fix.

If you’re lucky you’ll have a spare piece in the shed or in the kitchen.

If you don’t that’s OK, here’s a great tip. Have a look under a unit like a fridge or a cabinet or a cupboard, because under there will be a nice fresh piece that you can cut out to replace the damaged section, and nobody will even know it.

First step: remove the old piece.

Faye used a steel square and a utility knife to carefully cut around the ‘tile’ pattern on the vinyl. She lifted the damaged section out, using a scraper to work through the glue. She was careful to work away from herself and to avoid damage to the surrounding vinyl.

Faye took the damaged vinyl and laid it on the replacement section to use as a template. This way she could cut a replacement ‘tile’ that’s an exact fit. She used tape to hold the template in place, cut around it carefully with a utility knife, and remove it as before.

Faye scraped the remaining glue from the floor and the back of the replacement vinyl piece. She then spread Selley’s Kwik Grip onto all of the surfaces using a notched glue spreader. Once the glue was touch dry on all surfaces (about 20 minutes) she carefully aligned the replacement patch, laid it into place and knocked it down using a block of wood.

And there you have it. A quick repair that will last.
