Testimonials

When I moved into my new house, I was shocked by how dirty and old the tiles in the entire house looked. I wasn't sure if they were supposed to be like that or if they were just really dirty. I decided to call Tile Cleaners and ask them to have a look and tell me what I could do to improve the look of my tiles. Tile Cleaners ® came the same weekend and managed to make my tiles look brand new. They also informed me that the sealer would protect my tiles for years to come. Amazing! Thank you guys! My floor looks gorgeous.

Amanda Burtender, Brighton East, VIC

I was about to sell my business and wanted to clean and reseal my vinyl floors to improve the looks of them before having people over for inspection of the property. I did a booking with another company but was horrified when I realized that my floor was back to its horrible look in less than two weeks. I carefully looked up other cleaning companies, scared that I would chose the wrong cleaning company. A friend of mine recommended Tile Cleaners, but after what happened to my floor last time I got it cleaned I was really skeptic, but gave it a go. All I can say is thank you guys so much for a quick response and a good job. I sold the office and left your contact details with the new owner for future cleaning.

Brian Hook, Bayswater, WA

My mother's tiles were old and ugly, as she has been living in the same house her entire life without ever really taking care of her tiles. I called Tile Cleaners to get advice on what to do with them. They came to her house the next day to have a look at my mum's tiles. I am very satisfied with how patient and highly professional you were with my mother. I am sorry I couldn't be there when you arrived, and I am really impressed by how you managed to explain everything to my mom and help her out. Thank you for doing a great job.

Terrazzo is a unique and elegant composite material; available in a wide range of styles offering a high degree of design flexibility. Terrazzo is pre-cast or poured into shape and has the ability to attain a very high polish, leaving a very smooth and lustrous shine.

What is Terrazzo Tile?

The name "terrazzo" comes from the Italian word for terraces and was created several hundred years ago when Venetians found a new use for discarded marble fragments, using the pieces together with a binder to surface the terraces around their living areas. Terrazzo typically contains marble, quartz, granite, glass or other aggregates and is poured or hydraulically pressed as tiles. When terrazzo is polished its colours and particular qualities will be further enhanced and more noticeable. Terrazzo is durable, can be repeatedly refinished and is easy to maintain, with a correct maintenance procedure.

Terrazzo floors are a beautiful choice for flooring and can retain their original beauty for a very long time when cared for properly. Corio's Tile Cleaners® can help you maintain your terrazzo floors and keep them in their best possible condition for longer.

Terrazzo will unfortunately scratch, etch and lose its shine and luster without proper maintenance. The presence of marble in the chips and/or dust means that the surface can become dull through etching caused by acidic substances. To prevent this effect, terrazzo should be protected with a deep penetrating invisible sealer.

Terrazzo has always been dependent on being one of the most durable floor surfaces in the floor tile industry. Terrazzo is usually a poured surface; however, it is now available as a precut floor tile. It is often used in commercial applications and is available in a variety of colours and styles. Tile Cleaners® technicians use only top quality terrazzo cleaners, sealers and polishes.

Although terrazzo is very hard wearing, it is unfortunately quite porous and will easily etch upon contact with common acidic substances. Terrazzo absorbs liquids and oils, leaving stains under the surface that can be very difficult to remove. Fruit juice, sauces, soft drink and acidic cleaning products making contact with terrazzo puts it in danger of permanent staining.

Sealing terrazzo has been debated in the stone and tile industry for many years, as terrazzo is a mixture of marble and cement/binder. Marble chips are sprinkled on the surface meaning that a majority of the surface is marble, which has a low porosity, together with a highly porous binder that easily absorbs stains. This is the part of the flooring which will cause you the most grief.

Terrazzo should be sealed with a high quality impregnating sealer which penetrates both the terrazzo and binder, curing deep inside the pore structure leaving an invisible protective barrier against staining and also resulting in maintenance becoming much easier. Unsealed or weakly sealed terrazzo will soak up oils, spills, and stains.

Australia's Deepshield™ Gold, based on the latest fluoro-bond technology is specifically designed for denser surfaces such as terrazzo, providing protection for up to 15 years. Deepshield™ Gold is non-toxic and non-slip. To check whether your terrazzo is sealed, leave a few drops of water on the surface. If after a few minutes the water has soaked into the terrazzo, then it's time to reseal the stone.

Allow the sealer to penetrate and dry for the recommended amount of time. Drying time will vary with atmospheric conditions, however the surface should be touch-dry within 60 - 90 minutes of application. Surfaces should not be opened to full traffic until totally cured which normally requires 24 hours for a penetrating sealer and 48 hours for topical sealers. Terrazzo sealer applied to Terrazzo-based binding will dry quicker than sealer applied over resin-based binding.

Our equipment can handle both domestic and commercial cleaning jobs, leaving your floors spotless and protected

Pre Sealing Preparation

As with the application of any protective treatment, surface preparation is vital to the longevity of the protective coating. The following should be adhered to for long lasting protection:

  • Always ensure that the surface to be treated is totally free of soil, wax, chemicals and oils as well as any loose material.
  • Always ensure that the surface is totally dry.
  • The sealer will not satisfactorily adhere and cure on a damp floor. Never apply sealer in direct sunlight. The surface will dry too fast, and the sealer will not level nor cure correctly.
Tile Cleaners® will take care of all pre sealing preparation required for your tiles, ensuring the terrazzo tiles are sealed after the tiles have been cleaned and restored to their best possible condition.

Corio's Tile Cleaners® know the importance of taking care of your terrazzo flooring. Tile cleaning & restoration is an important aspect of maintaining the beauty of your terrazzo floors. If treated properly, terrazzo will provide for a beautiful floor that is hard wearing, warm, stain resistant and extremely easy to maintain. Terrazzo tile restoration and cleaning provides a holistic solution for floor maintenance.

Tile Cleaners® provide terrazzo tile cleaning & restoration services for both commercial and domestic premises.

You can count on our technicians expertise, professionalism and experience to guarantee satisfaction with the condition of your terrazzo tile floor.

Terrazzo Tile Maintenance

Special care is required when cleaning terrazzo. Terrazzo tiles are generally porous, even when made with non-porous stone chips, and require sealing to protect them. Even factory pre-sealed tiles require an additional sealer after installation to protect the floor against stains.

Spills should be cleaned immediately. You should generally use only warm water and a mild detergent on your terrazzo floors and never use vinegar, strong chemicals and acidic cleaning products on terrazzo. The acid in vinegar can seriously damage and actually etch and remove the surface of terrazzo. After mopping, dry the floor with a cotton towel or use a sh-mop to remove the moisture and prevent water spots. Always dry your terrazzo floors as they spot very easily.

Terrazzo Tile Sealing

All porous tiles should be sealed, sealing your tiles helps prevent & reduce staining. Sealing your Terrazzo will keep most stains suspended at the surface, creating a barrier that provides protection against chemical attack, deterioration and contamination. Sealing is the first important step towards protecting your surfaces against stains.

Terrazzo Stripping

Stripping, scrubbing and cleaning to remove old sealant and its residue, restoring the original appearance of the floor. Our technicians are equipped with all necessary equipment and possess all skills and experience needed to provide your Terrazzo tiles with an extensive surface stripping service. We can strip and reseal any hard surface flooring as well as wall tiles.

Terrazzo Grinding

Grinding will smooth out imperfections and open a new layer upon which it is possible to build a high quality honed or polished finish. Grinding will remove deep scratches, stains and other contaminations from your Terrazzo, resulting in a very smooth and even surface. Grinding will also remove any lippage, the term used for uneven tiles which can occur after a typical installation.

Terrazzo Honing

Honed Terrazzo surfaces have a more satin-feel, smooth and velvety to the touch often more suited to casual, comfortable environments than more formal polished surfaces. Honing your floors is a fantastic way to virtually eliminate taxing maintenance requirements while still having the wonderful characteristic of beautiful stone surfaces in your home or business.

Terrazzo Polishing

Polishing is achieved by using very fine grade abrasive diamond discs until a reflective finish is achieved. These final grades reduce scratches which are not even visible to the human eye allowing the natural crystals on the surface to reflect light more effectively. Highly polished floors have much smaller pores to collect soil, dirt and grime, ensuring maintenance is made a lot easier.

Efflorescence Treatment

Efflorescence is the formation of salt deposits on or near the surface of the tile and grout. Tile Cleaners® technicians have a variety of equipment for the effective removal of efflorescence. We also carry all the required treatments, agitation tools as well as chemical solutions to safely and effectively removed efflorescence deposits internally and externally.

Frequently Asked Questions


If your terrazzo floors appear dull and lack their usual shine, even after thorough domestic cleaning, it is an indication that professional cleaning is needed. The dull and matte appearance suggests the accumulation of dirt and grime that regular cleaning methods may not effectively remove. Additionally, if you notice that your terrazzo tiles are becoming more prone to staining, it signifies that the previous sealer has worn off, leaving the surface vulnerable to staining. In such cases, immediate resealing becomes crucial to prevent further damage from staining. By addressing these signs promptly and seeking professional cleaning and resealing services, you can restore the fresh and vibrant look of your terrazzo floors.

Terrazzo strip and seal is a procedure that involves removing the existing coating or sealant from a terrazzo tile floor before applying a new sealer. Over time, terrazzo flooring can become dull and lose its luster, diminishing the overall aesthetics of a home or space. By stripping the old sealant and resealing the terrazzo, you can restore its beautiful and glossy appearance, effectively revitalizing the floor. This process not only enhances the visual appeal but also eliminates the need for costly floor replacement.

The Tile Cleaning restoration service encompasses various crucial elements and processes aimed at effectively cleaning and restoring stone floors. Our skilled technicians utilize advanced equipment and technical expertise to achieve outstanding outcomes. The process involves employing high-pressure cleaning techniques that effectively eliminate dirt, grime, and stains from the stone tiles.

Yes, it is safe to have your terrazzo tiles cleaned by professionals at Tile Cleaning. We prioritize the use of high-quality water-based products and state-of-the-art cleaning machinery to ensure the best cleaning results without compromising the condition of your terrazzo tiles. Terrazzo tiles, being porous in nature, require special attention and care compared to man-made tiles. Therefore, it is crucial to utilize the appropriate products and equipment specifically designed for terrazzo tiles to restore them to their optimal condition. Tile Cleaning takes pride in catering to the unique needs of each tile variety, including terrazzo, to provide safe and effective cleaning solutions for your terrazzo tiles.

Tile Cleaning places a strong emphasis on the safety of your family during the cleaning process. They ensure that only non-toxic finishing agents are used, eliminating the presence of any potentially harmful substances or ingredients. Tile Cleaning takes great care in selecting cleaning products, specifically excluding any ingredients that could pose health risks.

By choosing Tile Cleaning, you can have peace of mind knowing that the products used in the cleaning process are free from toxic ingredients.

The recommended frequency for sealing terrazzo floors varies depending on factors such as the type of sealer used and the amount of foot traffic the tiles are exposed to. Deepshield® is a range of deep impregnating water-based sealers available in Australia, with Deepshield Gold® offering long-term benefits and a lifespan of up to 15 years. On the other hand, topical sealers typically have a shorter lifespan of around 3 years. However, the actual duration may be influenced by factors such as high foot traffic or severe weather conditions (in the case of outdoor tiles), which may result in a shorter lifespan. Additionally, the condition of the tiles is a determining factor; if they start showing patchy areas and are easily staining, it is an indication that resealing is needed. For personalized assistance and further inquiries, feel free to contact us at your convenience.

If terrazzo floors are not sealed, they can be prone to damage. Spills containing oils or harsh substances have the potential to penetrate the porous surface of the terrazzo tiles, resulting in permanent stains that cannot be removed through regular domestic cleaning methods. To preserve the natural appearance and durability of terrazzo floors, it is highly recommended to seal them. Sealing provides protection against permanent staining and helps prevent accidental damage in the future. By sealing your terrazzo floors, you can ensure that they maintain their optimal condition for a longer period and make them easier to clean and maintain.

The optimal time to seal terrazzo floors is right after installation, as it helps prevent accidental staining or damage. As for determining if your terrazzo floors require sealing, there are a couple of indicators to look out for. First, if you notice patchy areas on the floor where the sealant appears worn or unevenly applied, it suggests that resealing is necessary. Additionally, if your terrazzo tiles are staining more easily than before, it is a sign that the previous sealant has worn off and resealing is needed. By addressing these observations, you can ensure that your terrazzo floors remain protected and maintain their pristine appearance.

To maintain the fresh appearance of your terrazzo tiles, Tile Cleaning recommends following a regular cleaning routine. It is advised to clean the tiles and grout on a weekly basis using a damp microfiber cloth and a mild detergent. This helps to effectively remove any dirt or grime from the tiled surface. It is important to avoid using strong detergents that contain strong acids or alkalis, as they can potentially affect the sealer. Instead, it is strongly recommended to use mild detergents and pH neutral substances. Additionally, the best advice for protecting your terrazzo tiles is to seal them with one of the highest quality sealers available. Sealing provides the best protection against staining and helps maintain the pristine condition of your terrazzo tiles.

If you have a new stain on your terrazzo floor that hasn't set in deeply, there is a good chance that Tile Cleaning can remove it. However, it is important to note that while we strive to clean the stain to the best possible condition, we cannot guarantee complete removal. The outcome also depends on whether the terrazzo tiles have been previously sealed or not. In some cases, stains may penetrate the natural stone and settle below the surface, making them more challenging to clean. To prevent future staining and ensure the long-term protection of your terrazzo floors, we recommend having Tile Cleaning perform a comprehensive process of stripping, cleaning, and sealing your terrazzo floor. By taking this approach, you can minimize the likelihood of future staining and preserve the pristine appearance of your terrazzo floors.

Tile Cleaning charges for cleaning terrazzo tiles based on a per square meter rate for each individual room. You can find a detailed price list on the Tile Cleaning website to review. Prior to commencing the work, our team will measure each room individually and discuss the specific scope of the cleaning service with you. We will also provide a clear confirmation of all costs associated with the cleaning job. This ensures transparency and allows you to have a complete understanding of the pricing structure before the cleaning process begins.

To measure the size of a terrazzo area, it is recommended to measure each area separately. The measurement can be calculated by multiplying the width of the area by its length. For example, if a room measures 3 meters in length and 2 meters in width, the total area would be calculated as 3 multiplied by 2, resulting in a total of 6 square meters. By measuring each terrazzo area separately and using the width by length calculation, you can accurately determine the total size of the area.

Tile Cleaning provides assistance with moving furniture during the floor sealing process. Their team of dedicated technicians is available to help with the relocation of furniture items that can be reasonably managed by one person, such as those with wheels or lightweight furniture like tables and chairs. However, it is important to keep in mind that while Tile Cleaning takes precautions to protect your belongings, they cannot be held responsible for any damages that may occur during the furniture moving process. To ensure the safety of valuable or fragile items, it is recommended to either relocate them to a secure area or properly secure them before the technicians arrive. By taking these necessary precautions, you can help ensure the safety of your furniture and minimize the risk of potential damage while the floor sealing process is being carried out.

To prepare for the cleaning of your terrazzo floors, it is important to remove all furniture and items from the floor. By doing so, you ensure that the area is clear and ready for the cleaning process when our team arrives. This allows our technicians to have unobstructed access and provides a safe and effective environment for the cleaning procedure. Removing furniture and items from the floor also helps to prevent any potential damage or interference during the cleaning process.
