How Long Should You Wait After Linoleum Is Installed to Replace a Toilet?


At Least 24 Hours

  • The adhesive on linoleum flooring requires at least 24 hours to set before having anything heavy placed back on it. Replacing any items onto the floor sooner than this can cause denting and dimpling.

Up to 72 Hours

  • Linoleum tiles and sheets may take as long as 72 hours to cure and bond completely. This varies by manufacturer.

Bottom Line

  • Wait at least 24 hours before replacing the toilet in a bathroom that has just had linoleum laid in it. Read and follow all the manufacturer's instructions for the linoleum floor to avoid denting or dimpling of the surface.
