Terrazzo – Cleaning and Sealing

Terrazzo is reputed in the international market for its premium quality, toughness and durability. It is often the preferred choice for interior and exterior in both commercial and domestic for flooring, wall cladding, paving and facades of buildings, railway stations, pavement, landscaping and garden stone.

Terrazzo Maintenance

Mix Remove and Go 50/50 with Nanotech Ultra Clean and leave in place for an hour before scrubbing and rinsing the floor with water. You may need to hire a Wet Vac machine to soak up the excess residue, then scrub and rinse with water again, cleaning the grout lines as you go.

Remove any cleaning solution using a wet-dry vac machine (any cleaning solution left on the surface may impact the performance of the sealer) then neutralise floor with clean water prior to sealing, remove with a wet-dry Vac machine and allow to dry overnight.

Alternatively if you have the use of a 350 RPM (or higher) buffing machine use a Red Twister pad to take off the Old sealer and ground in dirt, add water to the area and then go over each Tile 3 or 4 times, then remove the dirty water using a Vac machine and rinse the floor. Next take off the Red pad and apply a White Twister pad, repeat the process with this pad followed by the Yellow Twister Pad, remove the water with a Vac machine and then finally complete the polishing by applying a Green Twister Pad and polish with a squirt of water. When polishing is complete proceed to clean the grout.

When the floor is fully dry apply 2 coats of Tile Doctor Colour Grow enhancing sealer using a clean dry terry cloth (not the fluffy variety). Rub Sealant into the tile. Allow to dry before applying a second coat. Use a water test to achieve full cure sealability (F.C.S.).

For regular cleaning use a sealer friendly cleaning product such as Neutral Tile Cleaner which has been especially formulated for the regular cleaning of Sealed Stone and Tile surfaces keeping them fresh with a pleasant mint scent.

PLEASE NOTE: Most sealers break down after 2-3 years (depending on usage) and will need to be re-applied.
