Terrazzo Floors - Care and Maintenance

Your Terrazzo has been ground and polished and sealed with a penetrating Terrazzo Sealer. This will protect your surface from any immediate stains, but no spillage should be ignored and allowed to soak and dry into the floor. Here are some guidelines for you that will help you keep your floor at it's best.

If you need any additional information or have any questions, send us an email, we'll be glad to offer our expert advice.

DO’S

  • DO ask your installing Terrazzo Contractor to recommend the proper neutral cleaner and sealers to be used on your floor.
  • DO dust mop your floors daily, this not only picks up the dust, but also the grit tracked into your building. Grit that is not cleaned up acts as an abrasive on your hard surface floor.
  • DO use maintenance products designed for Terrazzo.
  • DO allow your neutral cleaner, once applied to the Terrazzo surface, time to react as designed to loosen foreign matter. Several minutes should be adequate, but DO NOT allow solution to dry on surface.

DON’TS

  • DON’T use purely surface waxes, or all purpose sealers employment of such can result in slippery surfaces.
  • DON’T use all purpose cleaners containing water soluble inorganic or crystallizing salts, harmful alkali or acids. Use of such products could prove harmful to your Terrazzo floor.
  • DON’T use cheap cleaners or sealers since the majority of your maintenance costs is labor.
  • DON’T try miracle cleaners or sealers on your floor without getting an opinion on such products from your Terrazzo Contractor or this Association.
