Terrazzo is commonly used for lobby flooring in public buildings, such as school and government offices. Many homes in Florida that were built in the 1950s and 1960s used terrazzo flooring due to its constant cool temperature and resistance to mold and mildew. Recently terrazzo is being used in new construction and decorative homes for staircases, walls, and countertops. It is relatively easy to clean, but does need periodic professional maintenance.
Just like any hard surface material, terrazzo floors should be swept and dust-mopped regularly in order to remove grit and other matter, which can act as an abrasive and damage the polished surface. Harsh chemicals and products containing alcohol can also damage the finish – just like marble and limestone. Only neutral pH cleaners should be used in between professional servicing.
