Terrazzo is a beautiful, resilient, low-maintenance flooring option, only people generally don’t realize this because terrazzo is so often subject to improper cleaning and care.
For example, most terrazzo floors have layer upon layer of old, yellowing waxes or coatings that have a tendency to collect dirt and become scuffed and scratched. In an attempt to improve the appearance of the floor, people then strip and re-wax the terrazzo. It looks decent for a little while, but then the whole process starts over again.
Waxing and stripping, waxing and stripping, ad nauseam, ad infinitum…
There is a Better Way
Terrazzo can be restored using the same process that is used in restoring marble and granite. It can be honed and polished, using a natural polishing process, to achieve a gloss or matte finish — according to your preference.
Save Time and Money
When terrazzo is refinished naturally, honing removes the uppermost layer, revealing the brand new layer underneath. Polishing to a gloss or matte finish gives your terrazzo the look you want and eliminates the need for stripping and coatings. With natural refinishing, you can reduce maintenance costs, save time, and have a clean, beautiful terrazzo floor that will wow your customers or guests.

A Little Bit About Terrazzo
