At ACT Restoration in Brooklyn Park, our Twin Cities floor restoration professionals are experts in terrazzo floor restoration. If you’re considering restoration for your flooring, you may have questions about what to expect and how to prepare for your floor restoration.
In this post, we’ll talk about some important steps you can take before our floor restoration team comes to restore your terrazzo.
Beautiful Terrazzo Flooring
Terrazzo flooring tiles are typically constructed by adding an aggregate layer like glass, quartz, or marble to your concrete’s top layer. This leaves the stone chips exposed to create a beautiful and interesting floor that is also quite durable. The floor is polished until it is smooth, giving it a nonporous surface with a uniquely attractive style. Terrazzo floors have been used for many years throughout the world and continue to retain their popularity today.
Terrazzo floors are known for their flexibility in design as they can be created using a wide range of patterns, aggregates, colors, and styles. They also provide many benefits, which include a high level of durability, environmental friendliness, and resistance to chips, stains, and damage.
At ACT Restoration, we offer the following terrazzo flooring services:
Preparing Your Home For Floor Restoration
There are a few things you can do to prepare your home before we arrive to restore your terrazzo floors. Let’s check them out below.
Clear the Floors
Begin by clearing your floors completely. Floor restoration takes many steps that involve grinding and polishing. So, it’s best to move everything that might disrupt the restoration process to the garage to create enough room for every part that needs restoration to be seen.
Protect Furniture & Surfaces
Ensure that areas not included in the restoration are covered with plastics to prevent dust from affecting the polishing agents used by our floor specialists.
Check Your Alarm System
If your home has an alarm system, you’ll need to set off the alarm system or set it to test mode. Your home’s smoke alarm could be set off by dust during restoration. So, for a change in your alarm settings, it’s better you invite your security company for help. A little dust can set off a
Make the Breaker Box Accessible
Be sure to unlock your breaker box. Terrazzo restoration involves using many tools that can affect the electrical connection in your home if the flooring experts are not updated on the grid set up of your home. It will help if you also tape breakers with “live wires off,” especially if your home is in the middle of remodeling and ridden with bare wires.
Put Food Away
To avoid or reduce contamination, ensure that you move your refrigerator and any shelves to a place that does not need terrazzo restoration. This also includes emptying everything from the shelves in the closets. Do not forget to clear countertops completely, seal all food, lock them away, and seal drawers and cupboard seams with tape.
Keep Pets Away From the Restoration Area
In addition, if you have pets that are fond of wandering about your home, keep them away to avoid staining the floors. It’s better to keep your pets away from your home until your terrazzo restoration is dry enough for use. You may need to wait for your floor restoration professional to signal when it’s the best time to use your restored floor again.
Let Your People Know We’re Coming
