Common causes of damage to vinyl flooring

Domestic flooring can really take a beating and over time it’s not surprising that a material like vinyl flooring starts to show signs of daily use.

Here are some of the most common causes of damage to vinyl floors:

Water damage

Whether it’s from groundwater, flooding or a leaking appliance, water damage can lead to warping, staining and other damage to vinyl flooring.

Moving furniture

Scraping chairs and table legs on the floor and moving heavy items of furniture across the room can easily dent and scratch vinyl flooring. In some extreme cases, it can even completely pull up vinyl tiles or sheet vinyl from the floor.


Dropping sharp or heavy items on the floor is a sure-fire way of damaging a vinyl floor. Pointed edges or weighty objects will pierce the surface of the vinyl causing noticeable dents and scratches.

FAQs for vinyl floor repair costs

Can vinyl flooring be repaired?

If you have vinyl floor tiles, it’s easy to replace the damaged tiles on a single tile-by-tile basis. For sheet vinyl flooring you either need to patch the damage or fuse the surface. An alternative solution for minor damage, cuts and scratches is to use a liquid sealer – which you can buy online or from your local vinyl flooring suppliers

Should I repair or replace my vinyl flooring?

If the damage is minor or confined to a small area then a repair might be the best route to take. However, if there’s extensive damage that’s obviously noticeable then you might want to look at replacing the whole vinyl floor.
