Over time your terrazzo floor can become dull and lose its lustre and shine. The dullness is often caused by microscopic scratches on the surface of the stone where it has been walked on. This will make its glossy appearance deteriorate and we can bring it back to its former glory.
Other times it may be caused by acid etching. This is where the top layer has been slightly dissolved by something acidic.
When terrazzo is polished diamonds are used on your floor to gradually reduce the surface tension and remove all of the tiny scratches and it is this that gives the high shine which you are looking for.
Sometimes your terrazzo may just be dirty and in need of a clean.
We can clean the stone itself and also the grout and follow up with a sealer which can make following maintenance easier for you.
Exactly which process is used will be determined by several factors which will be discussed with you on your first enquiry and then further on our site visit and inspection.
Terrazzo is very durable and is laid using fragments of stone mixed with concrete and / or resins to produce stunning designs. Unfortunately the older method of laying this type of flooring is dying out with most of the last generation of “terrazzo men” literally taking their books of trade secrets and designs to the grave.
Fortunately we can still restore this for you. If there are stones that have come loose they can be filled with an epoxy resin and can be polished.
