Clean a terrazzo floor with a few simple steps. Floors can cover a large surface area in commercial and residential properties; therefore, it is essential to choose a floor that is easy to clean and maintain over time. Doyle Dickerson Terrazzo is here to offer tips on how to properly maintain a terrazzo floor.

Accidents happen. Whether a student comes back from recess leaving a trail of mud throughout the hallway, an employee accidentally spilling coffee at the office, or any other situation where a terrazzo floor is tampered with, Doyle Dickerson Terrazzo has got you covered.

What to Use to Clean a Terrazzo Floor

We highly recommend using a dry mop and a bucket of warm water to wipe away dust and fine particles. It is that simple. You can invest in a neutral cleaner as well if you expect the floors to become dirty occasionally. Because some cleaners can affect the color, texture or sheen of the floor, please do consult with a Doyle Dickerson Terrazzo representative first before purchasing a product.

Also, remember to always use clean water. Dirty water may cause streaks and can change the look of the terrazzo floor. We recommend mopping the floor daily during non-busy operation hours to keep the shine of the floors throughout the day.

How Do I Clean Terrazzo Floors?

Apply a Sealer

Provide protection to the terrazzo floor in high-traffic areas with a sealer. A sealer helps prevent floors from looking dull and being scratched up over time. We recommend staying away from surface waxes. By applying a wax product to a terrazzo floor, the floor can become slippery.

If a spill does happen, we do recommend cleaning up spills as quickly as possible. Terrazzo is non-porous, so evidence of staining is rare but we recommend a quick clean up as a safety precaution. Good housekeeping measures can go a long way in how a floor will look.

By having a regular cleaning routine, you can extend the life of a terrazzo surface. In recap, the requirements needed to clean a terrazzo floor are a mop, clean bucket with warm water and a laborer.
