How to Fix Small Gaps in Vinyl Tiles With Filler

Written by heather montgomery | 13/05/2017

Vinyl floors are a durable flooring choice for kitchens, bathrooms and foyers. With use, improper installation or general wear and tear, your vinyl flooring may develop small gaps in between tiles. These gaps can be filled with a liquid seam sealer to prevent dirt, stains and debris from getting into the gaps. It is also important to repair any gaps to prevent mould growth due to moisture that has seeped through the gaps from mopping.

Vacuum the seams to loosen and remove any dirt or debris.

Clean the area with a rag dipped in paint thinner. Allow the area to dry before proceeding.

Apply liquid seam sealer into the gaps. Level the sealer with a putty knife. Remove any excess sealer from the tile with a damp rag.

Leave the area undisturbed until the sealer is completely dry.
