Residential Diamond Polished Floor After Care and Maintenance
Congratulations on Your Terrazzo Restoration
Please take the time to read through this page to learn about how you should take care of your newly restored terrazzo flooring.
We take pride in our environmentally responsible work and we want to leave you with an everlasting shine.
RESIDENTIAL MAINTENANCE of DIAMOND POLISHED FLOORS
Use mats or floating carpets at entryways to collect dry dirt.
Use protective padding on furniture to prevent unnecessary scratching.
Clean up any spill matter as soon as possible.
REGULAR CLEANING – WEEKLY OR AS NEEDED
Dust mop or vacuum.
Damp mop or steam mop. If detergent is required, use one that is safe for polished natural stone or marble. Avoid cleaners such as Mop-n-Glow that leave a film like residue, as well as those that are not Ph neutral.
CLEANING SPILLS AND STAINS
Chemicals such as peroxide, household bleach, vinegar and ammonia can be used to fight stains on terrazzo (not concrete), but MUST be neutralized and rinsed after application. Do NOT mix these chemicals together! If unfamiliar with the properties and hazards of these chemicals, refrain from using them.
Peroxide – mild acid for removing protein-based stains.
Bleach – good general purpose stain remover.
Vinegar – milder and less invasive acidic cleaner.
Ammonia – good for removing grease from kitchen floors, as well as stripping old floor finishes.
A sharp razor can be used to remove tar, paint, gum and other sticky matter from terrazzo and concrete.
RE-POLISHING – AS NEEDED
Use polishing pads infused with diamond abrasives; 500, 1000, 1500, 3000.
Marble polishing paste can optionally be used on terrazzo.
