The terrazzo floors you see today were popularised in 18th century Venice, where the bits of marble left behind after use in art and construction would be taken by stonemasons and mixed with concrete to create a type of flooring that combines the beauty of marble with the durability of concrete.
The marble chips in terrazzo floors are the main reason they require plenty of care and attention, and we have all the experience necessary to take on this challenge. If you really want to keep this type of flooring looking its best, we recommend that you get a professional in at least once or twice a year.

The marble in Terrazzo is quite soft compared to other rocks commonly used in hard flooring and it is susceptible to scratching. When this happens, a professional polish will bring it back to its former glory.
Spillages, particularly acidic ones, can cause permanent damage if they aren’t cleaned up promptly, a professional seal helps guard against this. Although spillages become less of a problem when terrazzo floors are properly sealed, they should still be wiped away as soon as possible. You should never use vinegar to clean this type of flooring!
