Terrazzo Refinishing & Maintenance Services Atlanta,GA
Terrazzo adds 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.
In the 1950s and 60s, terrazzo was formed with marble chips and Portland cement, used 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 restoration techniques vary, depending on its composition and placement.
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.
N-Motion Stone and Tile Restoration provides high-quality terrazzo restoration in the Atlanta area. Our terrazzo services include deep cleaning, honing and polishing, changing the finish, stain removal, chip and crack repair, sealing and protecting, and more.
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 in stages, achieving 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, 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 help. Our highly skilled technicians receive ongoing training in the latest, most effective stain removal methods.
Chip and Crack Repair
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 Your Terrazzo
Once your terrazzo is restored, you may wish to have it 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.
