How to Fix Bubbled up Linoleum

Just last year I had linoleum flooring installed in my kitchen. After a few months I began to notice that the floor was beginning to bubble in certain areas. Rather than replace the linoleum floor tiles, I decided to try to fix the individual blisters instead.

A floor professional recommended that I cut into each bubble, lift up the floor tiles, scrape off the old adhesive and reapply new adhesive. I'm new to floor repairs, and this process seemed too complex for me.

Instead, I went to a home repair store and purchased a disposable flooring syringe with a metal needle. This can be directly inserted into a linoleum floor bubble and allows you to inject adhesive right at the heart of the problem area. The needle is very fine and does not leave behind a visible puncture mark. I was able to fix all of my linoleum bubbles in no time!

Also, for those who are in the process of purchasing, or have had linoleum flooring installed recently, note that linoleum has a tendency to bubble right after installation. This is caused by the linoleum floor adhesive off-gassing, and should go away after 72 hours. If the bubbles are still present after a few days, contact the manufacturer where you purchased the flooring.

If you have any more ideas or suggestions on how to fix bubbled vinyl or linoleum flooring, I'd love to hear them!

Oh my god! Thank you for this blog because I just installed linoleum in my home and it is starting bubble just like you said! Im freakin out! I'll calm down and hope the bubbles go down in a few days, hopefully the linoleum bubbles are just from the flooring adhesive like you said. Cross your fingers for me ;)

!!!!!!!!!!Wish Me Luck!!!!!!

First off I would like to say fantastic blog!
I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask
if you don't mind. I was interested to find out how you center
yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas
out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first
10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any
suggestions or hints? Many thanks!

Not all credit cards charges you an overlimit fee and, luckily, none of the top credit cards
for learners apply these fees.

Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Chrome.
I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser
compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know. The design look great though!
Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Cheers
