Forum Title: Fixing a bubble in Fiberfloor
Here's a kitchen layout of a job I did about four years ago. I used Tarkette adhesive, and let the adhesive dry as per recommended. I always hated the idea of letting the adhesives dry, so not long after this job, I started I seting in wet with all the glass-back materials. The floor has developed a bubble from one rear leg of the chair she sets at near an outside doorway. To the upper left is an outside doorway, and a seam (purple line), which I sealed. The red spot indicates the bubble by the table. The lady sets at this spot because the light comes in from the window above where the seam is. She's an older lady, a slightly on the heavy side. I'm guessing the bubble is because of the way she probably scoots or 'hops' the chair backward when she gets out of it. Yes, the legs have floor protectors now. The bubble is small, maybe 6 as I recall. How do you repair this kind of thing? The vinyl can't be folded back, so injection seems the only option............. but if injected between the under side of the vinyl, and the old adhesive, the adhesive could take forever to set up, and I honestly wonder if it ever would. If I split the bubble on a pattern line, that would be a horrible place for a seam, because like 'Sheldon' from Big Bang Theory, this is her spot and I know moving to a different side of the table would not be something she'd do.

Inject it , put a dab of seam sealer on the hole , let some weight set on it . No big deal . Is it one of the felt backs ?

I'm thinking the floor is sealed by the initial adhesive application and the new adhesive won't be able to dry or set up being trapped between that adhesive and the vinyl.
