TerrazzoNo more stripping and waxing

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. However, we find this coating process to be not only time-consuming and costly, but also unnecessary.

What, exactly, is terrazzo?

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.

A Natural Polish

Using the same process used to restore marble and other natural stone, terrazzo can be honed and 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.

Sealing Terrazzo

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.
