Terrazzo adds mid-century modern charm to any residential or commercial space 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 HydroGlow Cleaning & Floor Care expert terrazzo restoration services.
In the 1950s and 60s, terrazzo was formed with marble chips and Portland cement, used 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 restoration techniques vary, depending on its composition and placement.
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.
HydroGlow Cleaning & Floor Care provides high-quality terrazzo restoration in the Tampa area. Our terrazzo services include deep cleaning, polishing, sealing and protecting, and more.
Deep Cleaning Terrazzo
Sometimes terrazzo doesn’t need to be restored, it just needs some quality, professional attention. We can examine your floor to determine the best way to give your terrazzo the exact appearance 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 sanitized — so put away that scrub brush and contact us.
Terrazzo Polishing In Tampa
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.
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 in stages, achieving the desired look — from a soft, satin-like honed finish to a highly reflective, glossy polished finish.
Terrazzo Sealing and Protecting
Once your terrazzo is restored, you may wish to have it 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.
