Terrazzo Restoration


Let Total Floor Care clean and re-polish your terrazzo floors. We can remove old coatings, make repairs and polish your terrazzo floors and make them look great.

Terrazzo is a unique stone finish that usually contains marble chips of different sizes and colors and it is held together with a cement base, or in newer applications, held together with a resin or epoxy base.

Terrazzo can be restored using the same process that is used in restoring marble and granite. Most terrazzo is coated with a wax and the waxes have a tendency to collect dirt and yellow which will require stripping and re-waxing

Terrazzo can be polished using a natural polishing process that eliminates the need to strip off the old wax finishes and can actually reduce the maintenance cost. When terrazzo is finished naturally you can achieve a gloss or matte finish. Total Floor Care can restore, re-polish and repair your terrazzo floors, walls or counters. Using the proper cleaners and care products will keep your terrazzo looking like new with minimum maintenance.
