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. Hobart'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.
