Terrazzo Floor Care

Terrazzo floor care is not much different than cleaning marble floors.

In fact, cleaning terrazzo floors should follow the same procedures as cleaning any calcium based floor tile.

Most terrazzo floors are made from marble chips in a Portland cement and are in either tile form or poured-in-place as seen here.

There are also terrazzo floors that are in an epoxy matrix (e.g. airports) that are also poured-in-place.

The presence of marble in a terrazzo floor, should alert you to treating terrazzo as it were a marble floor.

Terrazzo Floor Care

This means, no acidic cleaning solutions should be used when cleaning terrazzo floors!

We always recommend to our customers when caring for terrazzo floors or any calcium based stone, to use a neutral floor cleaner.

Neutral cleaners that are safe for natural stone won't etch your terrazzo floor or break down any sealers that are present in your terrazzo.

One important aspect of terrazzo floor care is terrazzo-floor-restoration.

This is the process of restoring terrazzo to a polished finish without the use of topical coatings like wax or acrylics.

Terrazzo Floor Care

If your terrazzo flooring is looking a little dull, it may be time for a terrazzo restoration.

If done correctly, it will be honed and polished with diamond encrusted pads, very much like marble is restored.

After cleaning your terrazzo flooring or restoring your terrazzo flooring, it should always be sealed with an impregnating sealer.

Sealing terrazzo or natural stone helps protect the marble and the more porous cement from staining

How to Clean Terrazzo Floors

Cleaning terrazzo floors is the same as cleaning any natural stone and isn't a hard task.

Don't be worried about damaging your stone.

We always recommend neutral cleaners for all natural stone surfaces and that includes terrazzo cleaning.

Neutral cleaners are safe for all natural stone and tile and grout surfaces.

If your terrrazzo floor tile is looking a little dull, it probably needs more than a cleaning. It may need to be re-surfaced, or honed and polished.

Check out our terrazzo-floor-refinishing page for more information on restoring terrazzo floors to a polished finish.

The most important thing you need to know about cleaning terrazzo is not to use strong chemicals.

Acidic and even akaline chemicals will etch the marble in the cement matrix. Vinegar is acidic, so you do not want to clean terrazzo with an acidic chemical.

Terrazzo Floor Care

Neutral cleaners for natural stone are recommended and available at tile stores and if you don't have a neatral cleaner, use warm water to clean you terrazzo tile.

When cleaning your terrazzo floors, mop the terrazzo tiles with your neutral cleaning solution or warm water.

After mopping, use a dry cotton or microfiber cloth to dry the surface of the terrazzo.

Drying the terrazzo with the dry cotton or microfiber cloth will not only pick up the water, but any dirt still in the water.

This is a very important step that most people don't do.
