What is Terrazzo?
Terrazzo is a very elegant and unique stone to have in your home. It was first made in Italy, and the word terrazzo translates to “terraces” in Italian. Hundreds of years ago, people noticed that there were lots of leftover stone pieces from other projects, so they decided to combine them to create a new material. Hence, Terrazzo! When made, terrazzo is poured into a mould to create a specific shape. It has the ability to be polished and to provide you with a great shine.
It is usually made from materials such as marble, quartz, granite and glass, which combine to create a beautiful material. The colours that terrazzo comes in include black, blue, green, yellow, gold, brown, orange, red, white and grey. The whole rainbow! There is sure to be at least one that suits your home and your personal style.
Terrazzo floors are a fantastic choice for the flooring in your home and can retain their beauty for a very long time if they are cared for properly. Unfortunately, terrazzo will scratch and lose its shine without proper maintenance. Worry not, Tile Solution Australia is willing to help with all your terrazzo sealing and terrazzo cleaning needs!
Our Terrazzo tile services
Terrazzo cleaning: To deep clean terrazzo tiles, we like to use a high-pressure extraction and scrubbing machine that is filled with hot water and an environmentally friendly degreaser. Read more about our terrazzo cleaning and terrazzo resurfacing process here.
Terrazzo grinding and terrazzo polishing: When grinding and polishing your terrazzo tiles, we always begin with grinding. In this step, we remove any damaged material on the surface of the tile. We then move on to terrazzo polishing to remove any excess material and to produce the best planeness. Read more about our grinding and polishing process here.
Terrazzo sealing: Terrazzo sealing is used to protect the terrazzo tile and grout from absorbing any stains, oxidation, and from regular wear and tear. Read more about our terrazzo sealing process here.
Re-grouting: Regrouting is the removal of old grout and the installation of new grouting, which we usually recommend when old grout begins to deteriorate and discolour. Read more about our re-grouting process here.
