My new Lonoleum is peeling in the just remodeled bath.
I just had my bath remodeled, and the pattern from the linoleum is peeling. Does anyone know why this is happening? it is happening in little areas in the same place. The lino was stored properly before install, was bought off the roll at a big box store and my own contractors installed it. I'm flabbergasted. Any help would be appreciated. I used Swiffer wet jet 3 times. Other than that, just warm water. Thankyou. I wrote Tarkett, and sent pics, but haven't heard back.

Is it the pattern on the linoleum that's peeling or sections of the linoleum?

Is it manufactured in a Pacific Rim country?

Unfortunately, I don't see a photo but just a red x within a box within a larger box.

Did you try to upload a photo from your hard drive or from an online storage site?

If the vinyl if peeling apart, then it's defective. It shouldn't take too much to get a credit or a replacement piece. However, you will experience the down-side of you purchasing the material and hiring someone else to install. You'll have to get your contractor to do the replacement and even though you'll have new vinyl for free, you'll be paying to remove the old and install the new.

I'd go back tot he big box store, you'll likely get a resolution quicker.
