Recently had to have a leak fixed in the bathroom which involved having the tiles around the bath/shower replaced, as well as a new shower screen installed as the old one had failed.
House was built in 2015 by a well known UK house developer and the bathroom in particular seems to have been done quite poorly! I bought it in 2019 and unfortunately the previous owner had failed to get a lot of the snagging fixed.
Anyway, the bathroom flooring is some sort of vinyl plank and is starting to lift off the floor in the area next to the bathtub. I know that when using the shower (which is mounted over the bathtub) some water can spray off you and get the floor a bit wet around the bath. I always wipe this up after but I'm pretty sure the other members of my household don't and are tired of me nagging them to do it all the time ;) I think the water is getting in the gaps between the planks.
Obviously the best solution is to have the entire floor replaced. Might have to bite the bullet and have this done but I don't currently have the funds to do this after just having a bunch of other work done.
After inspecting the flooring, I'm 99% sure it's simply vinyl planks on wooden floor glued on using some sort of adhesive.
Is there anything I can do to seal these gaps without having to replace the whole floor right now? I thought about using some clear sealant but I have absolutely no knowledge about flooring or flooring adhesives so I'm not sure what to use (or if it's even possible to fix)
Here are some photos
This is what it looks like without touching it
This corner was relatively easy to pull away as I think the glue has been washed away, but there is a lot of resistance under the rest of the plank which is good I guess.
