to remove stiletto heel dents in vinyl and lino flooring
Because vinyl and
linoleom flooring is so soft, if someone wears stilettos on
it, it can dent the surface, particularly when the room is
heated. And because the ringed dents are usually ringed with
black, they are quite noticeable on light colored flooring.
If your lino is
dented, there is one thing you can do to try and fix the flooring.
You need a hair dryer and plenty of patience. Simply wave
the hair dryer over the spot and about a foot wide area around
it. You want to not just heat the specific one inch spot,
but the area around it.
When the flooring
is heated, sometimes the floor becomes pliant enough that
the rings will "release" from the fooring and go
back to its original flat shape.
If this does not
work - and it won't work on all floors - the floor will need
to be replaced or you can use small strategically placed mats
or carpets to try and hide the dents. A good scrubbing with
bleach can help remove the ringed black marks from the floor
to make it less noticeable.
