Repairing Vinyl Tiles

My daughter and I laid the pre-glued vinyl tile on my kitchen and bathroom floors. Some of the tiles are loose at the edges. Is there a way to keep them down? Should we use some kind of sealer?

You could try ironing the tile back down, with a very warm iron...Place a towel over the loose tile and "iron" the tile. (This will soften the glue, under the tile, and will reglue the tile back down.) Weight the tile down, with something heavy, after ironing the tile...

If your linoleum or vinyl is starting to peel up around the edges, it's important to fix it to keep moisture from getting to your sub flooring. Put linoleum cement under the edge of the linoleum and place a large book or brick on it.
