I left a pot on the stove too long, and it melted the aluminum drip pan. When I removed the hot pan from the stove, the liquified aluminum dripped onto the vinyl floor, melting it in several spots (largest spot pictured):
A guy at the hardware store suggested I
- Cut some replacement pieces of vinyl from under the stove (where it won't be noticed).
- Using an exacto knife, remove the damaged pieces, clean, and replace using contact cement.
How does this approach sound? Thoughts on skill level needed, durability, et cetera welcome.
Also - I am in a rental unit, so there's a possibility that they won't let me remove the pieces from under the stove. If so, is there anywhere online that it would be possible to match my vinyl flooring pattern?
