Use Hair Dryer To Calm That Curling Vinyl Floor

 

Q:  We have vinyl flooring in our bathroom.  It is in good shape, except for the part that butts up to the shower stall.  I guess water escaping from the shower has caused it to loosen and curl.  Is there a product that I can use to re-stick and seal this vinyl?

 

 

 

 

A:  To start, vacuum along the curled vinyl, ensuring the dust and residue has been removed from under the floor.  Using a hair dryer, warm the curled area of vinyl flooring, making it warm and flexible.  Pull back and apply a full-strength coat of Weldbond all-purpose adhesive.

 

Push flooring into place – it may require more heat – and weigh down with books or some other heavy object overnight.  Clean with water when cured and caulk with a bathroom-grade silicone.

 

 

It's Just That Easy!
