Terrazzo Polishing and Restoration
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.
In terrazzo cleaning and maintenance, it is often the practice to coat or wax terrazzo to achieve a polished look, but these coatings have a tendency to yellow and collect dirt and must be repeatedly stripped and reapplied. At Natural Stone Care, we find this coating process to be not only time-consuming and costly, but also unnecessary.
There is a much better way. Terrazzo can be honed and polished to a natural satin/matte or glossy finish, eliminating the endless cycle of waxing or coating and stripping. With our terrazzo services, your floor can be as easy to maintain as a quick sweep and a damp mop.
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.
Terrazzo Crack & Chip Repair
Like any other surface that sees traffic and use, terrazzo can become chipped and cracked. Our technicians are able to seamlessly repair this type of damage and restore your terrazzo to its original gorgeous and durable state.
Caring For Your Terrazzo
Sweep or dust mop your floors regularly to remove any debris that can get ground into the surface. Use only recommended cleaning products to keep your terrazzo looking like new with minimum maintenance. We make it a point to educate our customers on proper stone care.
