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. It is often the practice to wax terrazzo to achieve shine, but waxes turn yellow and collect dirt over time and therefore must be repeatedly stripped and reapplied. This process is not only time-consuming and costly, but also unnecessary.
When terrazzo is refinished using the same methods as those used in professional marble restoration, the result is a beautiful, lasting shine that eliminates the need to perpetually strip and wax. We also apply high quality impregnating sealers, if needed. 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 inhibit staining once the terrazzo has been restored and thoroughly cleaned.
