Terrazzo Grinding and Polishing
Terrazzo flooring requires very little maintenance to maintain its finish over time making it a very popular choice for high traffic commercial buildings that also need to maintain an upscale image, although the finish wears very well, it will eventually need to be mechanically ground and polished again like it was when it was originally installed. Grinding the terrazzo surface with coarse diamond impregnated discs allows the removal of deep scratches, surface stains, old sealers and waxes, and other imperfections. After the coarse diamond grind is completed, we begin removing the scratches that are left behind by gradually grinding the floor with finer grit diamond pads until we have reached the desired finish per our clients request (Matte – High Luster). The diamond grinding and polishing process can vary greatly from one project to another depending on the condition of the terrazzo, lightly worn terrazzo may only need a 4 step polish and finish while a heavily worn floor may require a 10 step grind and polish. The best way to tell what your floor needs is to consult with your terrazzo restoration specialists.
