Terrazzo Floor Cleaning And Restoration
If you have Terrazzo flooring in your home or business you know how beautiful and how long-lasting these floors can be. In fact, there are centuries old Terrazzo floors still in existence today. These floors were originally made using marble, but today’s Terrazzo floors may be made using marble, quartz, granite, glass or other material poured into a pre-cast (the pre-cast is normally concrete). Once made the Terrazzo are grounded down to a smooth finish and then polished to make them shine.
Over time your Terrazzo floor may become dull from a build up of dirt or from waxing (which should never be done) and require a professional cleaning. Here at West Palm Beach Floor Cleaning we have the trained professionals that clean and restore your Terrazzo floor for you.
Steps in Cleaning and Restoring Terrazzo Flooring
Cleaning and restoring Terrazzo flooring requires a series of steps. These steps include:
- Vacuuming the floor to remove any surface dirt, pet hair or other debris.
- Grinding the floor- A special machine needs to be used to disperse water and grind the floor first using rough grit, then medium grit and then fine grit to clean and smooth the floor. This requires going over the floor three times removing the dirty water and reapplying fresh water each time the grit is changed.
- The floor is then rinsed and any holes or cracks in your flooring is prepared to be prepared. The holes are then patched with thin set mortar using material that matches the original floor. Once the mortar is dry a grinder is used to smooth the patched area to match the smoothness of the rest of the floor.
- We then polish the floors and vitrifying it to high shine.
- We then apply a sealant made especially for Terrazzo floor to help protect it from damage.
