The townhome we're refurbishing has linoleum floors - mostly in good condition. There is only one small area where the linoleum seams have curled up - with some dirt in between.

Assuming I can get the dirt out, is there a kit/product for fixing these seams that gets good reviews?!

Google it.

Yes there is a seam sealer product that should have been installed originally. Sometimes it is hard to get a durable seam in a high traffic area, but a pro should have been able to do it. It would have been hardly noticable as well.

Home Depot has the seam sealer. It is near the ceramic tile area, near the flooring glues I believe. You may want to glue down each side with another product, then use seam sealer at the seam only. It sounds like a fairly intricate job, but it should be possible if you are patient.

We've had this problem...

1. Vacuum/clean away the dirt underneath

2. Apply contact cement to mating surfaces & allow the glue to get tacky per directions.

3. Press lino firmly in place & walk over the area.

4. Apply seam sealer per directions.
