Question protecting Peel and Stick Vinyl Tiles

Is there anything that I can put over the tile to protect it such as a sealer? My husband is afraid moisture will get in the cracks and loosen the glue.

That's one of the disadvantages of using peel and stick tiles. I don't think there's anything you can seal it with. (I could be wrong) .One good way to keep it up is to just wipe all excess water up when it happens. I myself have installed peel and stick and haven't had problems yet (been a year) but mainly no problems b/c we don't take showers or baths in that bathroom.

When problems do occur, at least you can replace the damaged peel and stick tiles with another one.

Check back as the pros here may have more suggestions.

The adhesive on lick & stick vinyl is not water soluable, so ordinary dampness from careful mopping should not cause any problems.
