Replace patches of lino flooring that have burn marks, holes or general wear. If possible, buy a cheap sample piece of lino, making sure it shows any repeat patterns. If not, find a hidden spot on the floor inside the pantry or under appliances where a piece of flooring can be cut without being noticed.

STEP 1

Cut around the damaged area, loosen the adhesive in one corner with a hairdryer and lift with a putty knife. Using a utility knife, cut a replacement piece to roughly match the damaged area, extending it 15mm around the pattern or grout line..

STEP 2

Tape the replacement piece over the damaged area to cut through both pieces with a sharp utility knife, following the pattern line.

STEP 3

Remove the damaged section of flooring and any backing material. Apply a vinyl-flooring adhesive with a small-notched trowel and secure the replacement piece, going over the seam with a vinyl floor sealer.
