Terrazzo is a unique stone finish that usually contains marble chips of different sizes and colors, held together with a cement base or, in newer applications, with a resin or epoxy base. Terrazzo can be restored using the same process that is used in restoring marble and granite.
No Need For Waxing
A lot of terrazzo, particularly older terrazzo, is finished with a wax or other topical coating to give it shine. These coatings not only have a tendency to collect dirt, but over time they can yellow, requiring stripping and re-waxing to bring back its original look. The truth is, however, that terrazzo can be beautifully restored using a natural polishing process that eliminates the need for topical coatings and actually reduces maintenance costs.
A Variety of Finishes
When terrazzo is finished naturally you can achieve a gloss or matte finish. Utilizing this natural process, 1st Floor Surface Care can restore, re-polish and repair your terrazzo floors, walls or counters.
