Recently, we traveled to Venice, Italy. We were amazed at the beauty of the city. some of the many treasures we viewed were the ancient terrazzo floors. The craftsmen who made these floors were true masters. They employed precision mixing techniques and high artistic sensitivity such that these floors were each unique and beautiful, still as vibrant and strong today as they were hundreds of years ago!

Hello! We are Colonial Floor Care!
Today we are featuring two of our videos- one whose subject is cleaning terrazzo, and another that illustrates another service we offer, concrete staining.
When we talk about terrazzo cleaning, we usually mean restoring, repair and polishing. As terrazzo ages, the sealer that it was coated with originally will yellow. Stains will develop, as well as cracks and pit holes. To properly clean it, it must be stripped by grinding it with course grinding heads, and then polished using a finer grade grinding head, much like when sanding wood, we begin with a course sandpaper and progress to a finer grade.
In this video, we are actually seeing a newly installed terrazzo floor, which is rather rare these days. You will notice, however, that instead of a toxic sealer, that will yellow with time, Colonial Floor Care uses a sophisticated grinding method that seals the floor, creating a durable, shiny surface, without the use of toxic chemicals.
Next we have concrete staining. This is also a non-toxic process that adds luxurious color to your concrete floor at an exceptionally reasonable price. After the stain is applied to achieve the color of your choice, the concrete floor is polished, leaving a delicious shine!
