Terrazzo floors are extremely durable and this is why they are widely used in supermarkets and shopping centres, however, old examples can need extensive stone repair work in order to restore them to their former glory.
Holes where stone chippings have come loose may need filling and a loss of lustre will mean the need for diamond grinding and polishing is inevitable.
Because it contains natural stone, usually marble, it can be polished to a high shine and then treated with a penetrative sealer in order to protect it from staining and discoloration. This can be discussed fully to work within a specified budget, no matter how large or small the area.
– It is important to remember, however, that the presence of calcite based aggregates, such as marble, in most Terrazzo floors makes it susceptible to etching.
– It is important that acid spills are wiped up promptly to avoid the etching and loss of shine to the floor.
