Terrazzo is a unique stone finish that usually contains marble chips of different sizes and colors and it is held together with a cement base or in newer applications, held together with a resin or epoxy base.
Terrazzo can be restored using the same process that is used in restoring marble and granite. Most existing terrazzo is coated with a wax and the waxes have a tendency to collect dirt and yellow which will require stripping and re-waxing.
Terrazzo can be polished using a natural polishing process that eliminates the need to strip off the old wax finishes and can actually reduce the maintenance cost. When terrazzo is finished naturally you can achieve a long-lasting gloss or matte finish. Nu Life Stone Care can restore, re-polish and repair your terrazzo floors, walls or counters. Using the proper cleaners and care products will keep your terrazzo looking like new with minimum maintenance.
In our terrazzo polishing process we can also densify the matrix of cement based terrazzo so it will hold a polish like never before, becoming glass-like in its appearance and with much greater longevity because of the added hardness.
