Your Terrazzo is in Good Hands

Terrazzo polishing techniques vary, depending on its composition, placement, and your requirements. Our terrazzo services include deep cleaning, honing and polishing, stain removal, minor repairs, and sealing and protecting.

About Terrazzo

In the 1950s and 60s, terrazzo was formed with marble chips and Portland cement as a binder. Modern terrazzo is formed using an epoxy binder and an incredibly diverse range of aggregate materials, ranging from the traditional marble chips to more contemporary materials like recycled glass and plastics.
Terrazzo lends a midcentury modern charm to residential and commercials spaces and is a beautiful, practical flooring option, especially for high-traffic use. If it’s been yellowed with layers of wax build-up or buried for years under carpet, linoleum, or tile, don’t replace it! Your colorful little specks of marble can glisten once again with MarbleKare USA’s expert terrazzo restoration services.
When your terrazzo floors need to be repaired or refinished, remember, quality craftsmanship is essential. In the hands of an experienced professional, the combination of aggregates and binders can allow for repairs of chips and holes in a way that blends well with the existing floor. In the wrong hands, such repairs can be unsightly.

Terrazzo Care and Maintenance Services

Terrazzo care and maintenance techniques vary, depending on its composition, placement, and your requirements. Our terrazzo services include deep cleaning, honing and polishing, stain removal, minor chip and crack repair, sealing and protecting, and more.

First, Let’s Stop the Expensive Cycle of Stripping and Waxing!

To make terrazzo shine, it is commonly coated with a wax. The problem is, waxed surfaces collect dirt, fade, yellow over time and will require a perpetual —and costly—cycle of stripping and re-waxing. We offer solutions that break the cycle of stripping and waxing, saving you thousands in annual maintenance costs, while achieving better results.

Deep Cleaning

Sometimes terrazzo doesn’t need major work, it just needs some quality, professional attention. We can examine your floor to determine the best way to give your terrazzo the exact results you want.

Our professional technicians use only the best and most appropriate cleaning solutions, technologies, and methods to extract dirt and grime. Your terrazzo floors will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized.

Terrazzo Stain Removal

Many stains can be removed from terrazzo with the appropriate do-it-yourself methods. We gladly provide stain removal information in our free, Stain App and downloadable Care Guide, and in our Tips and Articles, or you may contact us with specific questions. However, many stains require professional attention, and improper stain removal methods can cause further damage. If your terrazzo floors are stained, we can probably help. Our highly skilled technicians have years of experience dealing with stains and are up to date on the latest, most effective stain removal methods

Terrazzo Honing and Polishing

Our professional technicians are trained in the most effective terrazzo honing and polishing techniques. We begin by grinding away a very thin layer from the surface, essentially erasing almost any type of damage. From there, we polish to the desired look — from a soft, satin-like honed finish to a highly reflective, glossy polished finish.
With traffic and usage, terrazzo can get etched, scuffed, scratched, or otherwise damaged, resulting in an overall dull, dirty-looking appearance. In addition, improper cleaning methods can diminish the appearance of terrazzo.
Perhaps you have a polished terrazzo floor, but you prefer the softer, more subdued patina of a honed finish, or vice versa. MarbleKare USA can change the finish of your terrazzo. We can adjust the level of polish, giving your floor the custom appearance you have in mind.

Sealing and Protecting Terrazzo

Terrazzo is porous. Unsealed terrazzo can be susceptible to staining if certain spills or soiling material penetrate beneath the surface and go into the tiny pores. You may wish to have your terrazzo sealed to help protect against staining. We can provide this service for you. Sealing is not the same as applying a coating. A sealer guards against staining by filling the pores of both aggregate and binder so it becomes more difficult for staining agents to absorb into the terrazzo surface.

Terrazzo Care

Keeping it Beautiful
The best way to ensure your terrazzo retains its natural beauty is to have it professionally serviced every one to two years or as needed. For routine maintenance, we can instruct you on the proper care you should use in cleaning, including recommending stone-safe care products that help you maintain the optimal appearance of your terrazzo.
