All I did was take the fridge to clean behind it. Is supposed to be a quick, easy, but the end result was an urgency, a priority task repair. When the front of the refrigerator toppled, the extra weight did roll machines dig the kitchen floor vinyl and made a noticeable gouge in the center of the track.
If you have vinyl flooring anywhere in the home is likely to need repairs at some point. Pull on the washer, dryer or refrigerator from the wall, drop a heavy pot or Goofy on any number of innocent actions and results may be visible damage. Murphy's Law in relation to the vinyl coating is very emphatic: accidental bumps, cuts, cuts and scratches always occur in the most visible place possible or ostentation. Never going to happen in the mud or utility room, where nobody cares.
Repair vinyl flooring can be easy, depending on where the damage could be and how big it is. For some of the smaller sites, the solution is simple: Just take a spatula, clean the damaged area, as well as possible, and some of the adhesion strength of soil or under the edge of the flap nick. Use some heavy weight, like a brick or heavy book, to celebrate the repair until dry.
Sometimes an amendment curl or drop. In this case, the cleaning and scraping of the edge, and apply the adhesive layer. Then, the pile of bricks, heavy books or other plans, items weighing the repair until the adhesive established.
If you have storage space available, always keep the remains of floors, carpets and paint for minor repairs. If you do not have leftovers, cut a piece of vinyl a less visible, for example, in the refrigerator, inside a closet or behind the pantry door.
major repair can take more time and energy. Start by examining the wear patterns of the flats. If the damage is in the middle of a heavy traffic area, the combination of the word can be difficult. A small piece of new material will stand out as a sore thumb and may seem worse than the damage.
In these cases is probably higher Patch the best option. Their quality of care. If there is a pattern, such as grids on the ground, it is easier to hide the repair. Place patch in the play area damaged, and use a ruler and a knife to cut the two pieces together.
Raise the injured, and scrape a lot like adhesive residue old as possible. In then apply an adhesive coating on the patch and carefully position the play was old. Use bricks to keep the edges and corners, until the start of the adhesive.
If you cut the adhesive with precision cleaning of surfaces behind carefully and made the plane dry adhesive, the repair work should be almost invisible, and last until all the soil is replaced.
