Welcome To Cleaning Terrazzo
What is Terrazzo and why is it so valued?
Terrazzo has been used for centuries. Terrazzo origins are not completely known before the middle ages, when the process was invented by Venetian marble workers in the 15th century as a low cost flooring material. Using left over Marble chips from upscale jobs, They would then place them into clay on the patios around the living quarters. These chips could be large or small, anything that was left over was not wasted but used to create these beautiful surface. Using Goats milk as the "sealer" to preserve the wet and marble like look of these {so called} low cost flooring. To day these marble chips which are small in size, are place in a mixture of cement (usually Portland due to it's fine gain) or even with other natural stone. Even shells have been mixed with the chips to design a multi-colored and multi-textured floor surface. Archeology has found Terrazzo as early neolithic buildings. As far back as 8,000 BC in eastern Turkey.The process was different at that time, however what is known is that this durable, beautiful surface was found when excavating Pompeii still intact.
In the Mid Modern design years in architecture during the 1930 to the 1960's, especially in Southern Florida as well as other parts of the country, this flooring was used as a design element by the architects of the day. Using natural material, such as stone was considered to be the flooring of the day.
