Clean the VCT floor thoroughly with vinyl floor cleaner. Wipe the tile dry with a clean cloth.
Fill very small scratches with touch-up paint that matches the color of the tile. Simply apply a light stroke of paint to the scratches.
Use a clean cloth to dab larger scratches with lacquer thinner. Let the lacquer thinner dry on the tile overnight.
Apply a dab of liquid seam sealer onto the scratches with a clean cloth. Allow the sealer to dry for six hours.
Sand the scratches with fine-grit sandpaper to even the tile surface. Apply a bit of vinyl floor finish to the scratches to make the tile look like new.
