Close your eyes and imagine that you are a guest walking into your hotel. The door clicks open, they step inside, and the room is sparkling clean. They turn towards the bathroom, only to see that the floors are old and grimy.
This scenario is every modern hotel’s nightmare.
Even if the guest doesn’t call the front desk to complain, there’s a good chance they won’t book the hotel again. And, even worse, they might snap some photos to share on a review site.
If this scenario sounds familiar to you, your hotel may need to update its bathroom floors. Terrazzo restoration is an excellent way to keep your hotel looking attractive in the eyes of guests.
Look over this guide to help you navigate all the ins and outs of terrazzo restoration and then contact Safe Step to start your project.
What Is Terrazzo?
Terrazzo is a type of floor tile produced by blending several different kinds of material. Most terrazzo mixes some combination of glass, granite, quartz, and marble chips.
The result is an attractive, speckled look that adds quite a bit of texture to a room’s style. You can also design patterns or logos into the flooring.
Unfortunately, however, maintaining terrazzo is not always easy. Because the material is made of a combination of components, there is no one way to restore terrazzo. Each case of terrazzo flooring poses its unique challenges.
As a result, we highly recommend working with our team of trained professionals to restore your terrazzo floors the right way.
At Safe Step, our team of specialists knows how to restore many kinds of terrazzo. Thanks to our years of hands-on experience, we can work together to get your floors looking as good as new.
The Challenges of Terrazzo Restoration
What is the hardest part of restoring terrazzo floors? Why can’t you just do it yourself?
The answer to these questions pertains to how terrazzo wears down in the first place. Most terrazzo floors require restoration once they become permeated with multitudes of tiny holes.
These holes don’t just leave the floors looking ugly. They also allow substances like water to seep down through the flooring into the ceilings of the next story down. In the long term, this leakage can even create structural issues.
Our restoration process prevents this from happening by sealing the holes in the flooring. While this may sound simple enough, it’s actually a very complex process.
Safe Step technicians first study the colors of the flooring. Then, we create our own blend of substances to produce the perfect material for plugging the holes.
Next, we level the flooring so that it maintains its flat surface. And then we diamond polish the material so that it shines like marble.
