Professional Terrazzo Polishing and Repair / Tampa Bay Area
NATURALLY POLISHED TERRAZZO
Are you tired of stripping and waxing your terrazzo over and over again? There is a better way. Waxes that shine terrazzo turn yellow. Stripping and reapplying them is expensive and time-consuming. Naturally polished terrazzo, however, has a beautiful, reflective finish that does not require waxes and coatings.
Specialized Terrazzo Services
Stone and Tile Medics can give your terrazzo floors a natural polish that eliminates the need for stripping and waxing. Using the same process as that of marble and other natural stone restoration, terrazzo can be honed and polished to achieve both glossy and matte finishes without the need for coatings. This same process masterfully restores scratched and worn terrazzo, as well, dramatically improving its appearance. We can also repair most terrazzo damage, dramatically improving the appearance of your terrazzo. Once your terrazzo has been restored and cleaned and looks fabulous, we can apply sealer to inhibit staining.

Popular Terrazzo Questions
Terrazzo is a unique surface, primarily found as flooring, that traditionally contains marble chips of different sizes and colors held together with a cement base or, in newer applications, with a resin or epoxy base. Aggregates other than marble may also be used.
Like any other surface that sees traffic and use, terrazzo can become chipped and cracked. Terrazzo that has been covered in carpet is often damaged during the removal of the carpet tack strips. In many cases, our technicians can repair terrazzo damage, blending the repair site as closely as possible with the surrounding terrazzo.
Sealing is not the same as coating or waxing. It is an important but simple measure to buy you enough time to clean up spills before they turn into stains. Sealers do not need to be stripped like waxes and coatings. Appropriate penetrating sealers will not turn yellow or attract dirt.
