This Terrazzo restoration Burton-on-Trent project came about as our client had purchased an ex-East Midland Electricity Board building in Burton-Upon-Trent and found a lovely Terrazzo floor hidden under the carpet tiles.
They were refurbishing the building into a Pizza restaurant and searched for a Terrazzo floor restoration specialist to restore the floor to a new clean finish.
The main issues to be resolved by the Terrazzo restoration were:
- the ingrained soil in the surface of the Terrazzo
- carpet glue residue
- floor cracks
- damaged service hatch tiles
The work was carried out over a period of 3 weeks to accommodate the other trades in the restoration of the building.
I started by cleaning out the cracks on the floor with diamond burrs.
Then I filled the cracks with epoxy filler.
I also filled the cracks in the service hatch tiles with epoxy resin.
The floor was then left for a couple of weeks while the other contractors carried on with their refurbishment work.
Terrazzo Restoration Burton-on-Trent – Removing Soiled Stained Surface
I returned after a couple of weeks to grind, hone and seal one half of the floor. I ground the floor with my planetary grinding machine and 50 grit diamond terrazzo grinding tooling.
Then I honed the floor to a 100 grit honed finish.
I used hand grinding and polishing tools to restore the edges.
Also to restore the damaged service hatches.
Terrazzo Sealing Burton-on-Trent
I left the floor overnight to dry out, then sealed the floor with a high-quality Urethane Terrazzo Floor Sealer.
My client was thrilled with the results as the before and after photos below show.
