"if vinyl sheet then more than likely a case of replacing this is usually caused by moving dining room chairs, white goods being moved, pets with their claws or even watering getting underneath I don't install it due to how often this happens but most fitter will take it as its quick easy money"

"Generally you can place a small off cut of the vinyl on top and cut through both layers with a scalpel and then remove bottom layer and glue new piece in."

"if the damage is a dint in the vinyl then you can use a hair dryer to warm the material and rum the area till it is smooth ,if its a rip you can buy double sided tape place the tape under the rip peel backing of and carefully put back together,if its a hole depending on what design your flooring eg wood plank or tile effect and you have some of cuts a piece can be cut out and replaced but that is not for the diy"
