How do I repair linoleum flooring in kitchen?

Kitchen flooring has gotten torn leaving areas exposed behind chairs. Originally duct taped edges down but now size is much larger and rough edges pose a trip and fall threat. Is there a way to fix or is this now a job of tearing it all out and replacing with something? Don’t know what kind of flooring underneath. Thanks all

    If your flooring is sheet goods, you will probably need to replace it due to the damage. Chairs legs should probably have had felt cushions stuck on to slide better.

  • Replace the flooring and add glides to bottom of all chairs so this does not ruin the new flooring.

    Replace the linoleum with laminate, ceramic, hardwood, bamboo, or other material. Put rubber or plastic caps on all the chair and table legs. Besides your family members’ safety, remember that you have a liability issue already revealed. Take care of it! 😊
