How to Remove Dents From Vinyl Cushioned Flooring


You've finished cleaning behind the refrigerator and as you step back to admire your work you cringe in dismay: there's a very noticeable dent in the cushioned vinyl flooring where the fridge sat. Before you make that panic call to the flooring store, take a deep breath and relax. Its not too complicated to remove a dent from a cushioned vinyl floor; all you need is a couple of common household items and a dose of patience.

Things You'll Need

  • Steam iron
  • Dish towel
  • Hot pad
  • Preheat the iron for five minutes on the "cotton" setting.

  • Clean the dent with a paper towel and household spray cleaner to be sure there are no dirt or grease particles in the dented area.

  • Wet a dishtowel until it is saturated but not dripping; lay the towel over the dented area of your cushioned vinyl flooring.

  • Hold the hot iron one inch above the towel and move it around the dented area in a circular motion for three minutes.

  • Check the dent; if a potion is still visible repeat the process.

Tips & Warnings

  • Set the iron on a hot pad, not on the floor if you need to put it down.
