Replacement is easy, quick, and economical. Should Life Floor become damaged, 24"x24" tiles allow users to replace individual tiles instead of entire floors.
First, remove the damaged tile by lifting tile corners with a razor scraper or putty knife. Pull the tile away from the floor substrate until completely free. Next, scrape and remove any leftover adhesive from the substrate surface with a putty knife or a 4-inch razor scraper. After removing leftover adhesive, measure and, with a utility knife, cut a new Life Floor tile to the size of the replacement area. Finally, adhere tile to the substrate using waterproof contact cement found at your local hardware store. Follow the instructions on the back of the contact cement container for tile placement and adhesion process.
We recommend the following adhesion process: With a general paintbrush, evenly apply adhesive to the back of the replacement tile and to the substrate. Let both surfaces cure for approximately 10-15 minutes until the cement is tacky or slightly dry to the touch (see cement label for curing times). Begin laying down the replacement tile by aligning the new tile edge with the surrounding tile edges. Ensure each corner and edge are secure by applying pressure with your thumb and index finger. To ensure adhesive is secured to the substrate, use a floor roller to apply pressure to the entire tile area.
