Terrazzo Restoration and Maintenance | Atlanta GA

Your Terrazzo is in Good Hands

Terrazzo restoration techniques vary, depending on its composition, placement, and your requirements. Our terrazzo services include deep cleaning, honing and polishing, changing the finish, stain removal, chip and crack repair, sealing and protecting, and more.

About Terrazzo

In the 1950s and 60s, terrazzo was formed with marble chips and Portland cement as a binder. Modern terrazzo is formed using an epoxy binder and an incredibly diverse range of aggregate materials, ranging from the traditional marble chips to more contemporary materials like recycled glass and plastics. 

Terrazzo lends a midcentury modern charm to residential and commercials spaces and is a beautiful, practical flooring option, especially for high-traffic use. If it’s been yellowed with layers of wax build-up or buried for years under carpet, linoleum, or tile, don’t replace it! Your colorful little specks of marble can glisten once again with N-Motion’s expert terrazzo restoration services.

When your terrazzo floors need to be repaired or refinished, remember, quality craftsmanship is essential. In the hands of an experienced professional, the combination of aggregates and binders can allow for repairs of chips and holes in a way that blends well with the existing floor. In the wrong hands, such repairs can be unsightly.

Terrazzo Restoration and Maintenance Services

Terrazzo restoration techniques vary, depending on its composition, placement, and your requirements. Our terrazzo services include deep cleaning, honing and polishing, changing the finish, stain removal, chip and crack repair, sealing and protecting, and more.

First, Let’s Stop the Expensive Cycle of Stripping and Waxing!

To make terrazzo shine, it is commonly coated with a wax. The problem is, waxed surfaces collect dirt, fade, yellow over time and will require a perpetual —and costly—cycle of stripping and re-waxing. We offer solutions that break the cycle of stripping and waxing, saving you thousands in annual maintenance costs, while achieving better results. Give your terrazzo a beautiful gloss or matte finish with our natural polishing process. Preserve those results by adding MicroGuard1® 1500, which creates a durable, high-traction, anti-microbial, long-term protective barrier that doesn’t fade or yellow and is easy to clean.

On commercial terrazzo floors, MicroGuard1® 1500 is the perfect solution to maintain high traffic floors. Using an auto scrubber you can clean and keep a high polished finish. Perfect for school and institutional floors as well.

Deep Cleaning

Sometimes terrazzo doesn’t need to be restored, it just needs some quality, professional attention. We can examine your floor to determine the best way to give your terrazzo the exact appearance you want.

Our professional technicians use only the best and most appropriate cleaning solutions, technologies, and methods to extract dirt and grime. Your terrazzo floors will be thoroughly sanitized — so put away that scrub brush and contact us. Your knuckles will thank you.

Terrazzo Honing and Polishing

With traffic and usage, terrazzo can get etched, scuffed, scratched, or otherwise damaged, resulting in an overall dull, dirty-looking appearance. In addition, improper cleaning methods can diminish the appearance of terrazzo.

Our professional technicians are trained in the most effective terrazzo honing and polishing techniques. We begin by grinding away a very thin layer from the surface, essentially erasing almost any type of damage. From there, we polish to the desired look — from a soft, satin-like honed finish to a highly reflective, glossy polished finish.

Changing the Finish

Perhaps you have a polished terrazzo floor, but you prefer the softer, more subdued patina of a honed finish, or vice versa. N-Motion can change the finish of your terrazzo. We can adjust the level of polish, giving your floor the custom appearance you have in mind.

Terrazzo Stain Removal

Some stains can be removed from terrazzo with the appropriate do-it-yourself methods. We gladly provide stain removal information in our free, Stain App and downloadable Care Guide, and in our tips and articles, or you may contact us with specific questions. However, many stains require professional attention, and improper stain removal methods can cause further damage. If your terrazzo floors are stained, we can probably help. Our highly skilled technicians have years of experience dealing with stains and are up to date on the latest, most effective stain removal methods.

Terrazzo Crack and Chip Repair

Is your terrazzo damaged? Our expert technicians will be happy to assess the damage and determine what solutions are possible.

The most elegant terrazzo surfaces instantly lose appeal when there are chips or cracks. Perhaps a heavy item was dropped or dragged on the surface. Maybe the damage just mysteriously appeared there. Regardless of how your terrazzo was damaged, don’t panic. You can avoid the high cost of floor replacement by calling in the experts at N-Motion. We use the most tried and true solutions to virtually erase damage and restore your terrazzo with such precision that only you will know it was once chipped or cracked.

Sealing and Protecting Terrazzo

Terrazzo is porous. Unsealed terrazzo can be susceptible to staining if certain spills or soiling material penetrate beneath the surface and go into the tiny pores. You may wish to have your terrazzo sealed to help protect against staining. We can provide this service for you. Sealing is not the same as applying a coating. A sealer guards against staining by filling the pores of both aggregate and binder so it becomes more difficult for staining agents to absorb into the terrazzo surface.

Terrazzo Care

Keeping it Beautiful

The best way to ensure your terrazzo retains its natural beauty is to have it professionally serviced every one to two years or as needed. For routine maintenance, we can instruct you on the proper care you should use in cleaning, including recommending stone-safe care products that help you maintain the optimal appearance of your terrazzo.
