During the lifetime of a building, the total cost of flooring may exceed 35 times the initial cost. When selecting a flooring material for your facility, choosing a low maintenance flooring system like epoxy terrazzo can help building owners save on repairs, materials, and labor the entire lifespan of the building.
Consider the long-term value of the flooring system over upfront costs. While terrazzo is often viewed as a high-end material that has a higher cost per square footage over traditional flooring materials, over a lifespan of 40 years, it is the most cost-effective flooring material architects and general contractors can use today.
A terrazzo floor using TERRAZZCO EZPour Epoxy 158 is ideal for areas with heavy foot traffic and is simple to clean using basic cleaning techniques with neutral soaps or detergents.
One of the problems with flooring systems today is that the daily wear and tear in high traffic areas will cause some flooring surfaces to undergo repairs or need replacing. With epoxy terrazzo, the floor is virtually indestructible. As a result, building owners have less to worry about. It’s a set it and leave it type of flooring system that is crack-resistant, water-resistant, and stain-resistant.
In rare cases where a terrazzo floor needs repairs, terrazzo floors can be restored to their original luster at a fraction of the cost of replacing the finish. This is true for existing terrazzo floors found in older buildings, or for buildings that experience damages caused by hurricanes and earthquakes.
The combination of durabilty and ease of maintenance gives epoxy terrazzo the lowest lifecycle costs among all commercial floors.
Cleaning a terrazzo floor is easy. Because terrazzo is nonporous, dirt and grime can be removed with a routine cleaning involving clean water and a mop. Using a dry mop, a sweep across the terrazzo surface will remove any dirt, crumbs, or other foreign matter. Weekly, damp mop a lightly soiled terrazzo floor with a neutral cleaner. In following these simple steps, building owners can have a floor that looks as good as new for many years.
It’s that easy. No need to use wax or all-purpose cleaners to maintain a terrazzo floor.
