There’s a reason a classic stays a classic. Homeowners and renovators who appreciate history already know the artistry of terrazzo. This timeless flooring is a composite material with chips of marble, quartz, granite, and glass floating together in a concrete or epoxy-resin binder.
Although terrazzo can be traced back to ancient Egypt, this graceful yet resilient flooring had a renaissance during the mid-twentieth century. Toward the end of the last century, owners of homes and businesses hid older terrazzo floors under carpet or tile, as they lacked the technology to restore it. But this retro material is enjoying a resurgence due to its beauty, durability, low maintenance and the availability of restoration sciences, services and products that did not exist 25 years ago. Terrazzo’s distinctive style works in modern, midcentury, contemporary and traditional designs.
Terrazzo Cleaning and Polishing
When creating terrazzo, a matrix is overfilled with chips and allowed to set before technicians grind, smooth and polish the surface. Today, most terrazzo is bound with concrete or epoxy, which allows for a wide variety of colors, fast installation, and a thin but durable finish. If your terrazzo floor is intact and free from heavy stains, MARBLELIFE® concrete and terrazzo care products are a safe, effective way to maintain its color and shine in between professional treatments.
