Terrazzo Flooring Information – Environmentally Friendly

Terrazzo and Sustainability

Terrazzo flooring is an original recycled product, created centuries ago by Venetian workers using the waste chips from slab marble processing. Today Terrazzo continues to provide environmentally friendly durability.

Terrazzo flooring also requires only minimal, low-cost maintenance. Routine maintenance should be no more than dry brushing and damp mopping, with an occasional spray buffing. Waxing or chemical cleaners only serve to cloud or damage the finish.

Terrazzo is composed of naturally occurring aggregates, recycled glass and cement. The binders constitute 25-30 percent of the volume of a floor; the remainder is composed of aggregates, pigments and fillers.
