Elegant and versatile, terrazzo floors are some of the most attractive floors available for homes and businesses alike. And the love of terrazzo floors is nothing new.

These beautiful floors have been gracing buildings since they were used to design mosaics in ancient Egypt. Later, terrazzo would be crafted using marble and concrete to create the Italian terrazzo that rose to popularity during the 18th century. And during the art deco era, it would dominate the American architectural scene.

Today’s terrazzo floors are available in nearly limitless design options and look just as beautiful as they did in the ancient halls of history. Check out these great reasons to invest in your terrazzo floors in this post from our floor restoration team at ACT Restoration in Brooklyn Park.

When Floors Need Restoration

If you’ve got aging terrazzo floors, it’s important to stay on top of repairs. Given time, these types of issues will only worsen, interfering with the durability and beauty of your floors:

●        Chips

●        Cracks

●        Holes

●        Stains

●        Discoloration

●        Etching

●        Scratches

Transforming Your Terrazzo Floors

If your terrazzo floors are in need of restoration, you might be tempted to cover them up or start fresh. These are a few reasons you should reconsider and invest in your terrazzo floors instead:

1.    They’ll last longer than other types of flooring.

Terrazzo is one of the most durable and long-lasting types of flooring available. Although the average life cycle for terrazzo floors is around 75 years, they may last for a century or longer with the right level of care and maintenance.

2.    They’re easy to clean.

Terrazzo floors are some of the easiest types of floors to clean. Unlike carpet, which requires constant cleaning and never quite comes completely clean, or hardwood, which requires frequent sanding, terrazzo only needs a mop, water, and a little soap.

3.    They’re hypo-allergenic.

While other types of flooring are much more porous, terrazzo floors have a high degree of density and won’t harbor bacteria and allergens. This makes them a cleaner, safer flooring solution for anyone with allergies, asthma, or special health needs.
