A Chip Off the Old Block…
Terrazzo is a unique surface, primarily found as flooring, that traditionally contains marble chips of different sizes and colors held together with a cement base or, in newer applications, with a resin or epoxy base. Aggregates other than marble may also be used. It is often the practice to coat or wax terrazzo to achieve a polished look, but this solution can result in yellowing and form a layer that traps dirt. With this method, what’s on top of the terrazzo must be repeatedly stripped and reapplied. A natural polish eliminates the need for coatings, which can save time and money. However, in certain circumstances, a very high performance coating may be applied to achieve beautiful and lasting results. Let’s discuss your needs to determine the best possible approach to cleaning and restoring your terrazzo.
Honing & Polishing Terrazzo
Using the same process used to restore marble and other natural stone, terrazzo can be polished to achieve both glossy and matte finishes without the need for coatings. This same process masterfully restores scratched and worn terrazzo to like-new (or better) condition, as well.
It is important to note that sealing is not the same as coating or waxing and is an important, but simple measure that can be taken to help prevent staining once the terrazzo has been restored and thoroughly cleaned. Properly sealed and maintained terrazzo retains its beautiful shine and color.
