In our conservatory and downstairs lavatory we have a floor made of 9" square
terrazzo tiles. This was laid before 1976, and on the whole it is fine. I
clean it with Ecover floor soap, and this has improved it a lot.
However, there are several places where the surface is marred by smears of
cement from when it was installed. I have tried getting these off with an
ordinary scraper, of the wallpaper sort, but no progress. I know that
removing the cement will do nothing to improve some marks possibly caused by
rotary tools or cold chisels. Short of replacing the whole floor how can I
I have 1 spare tile, without any maker's name. It seems to be in 2 layers,
the top one being polished and the underneath one is more like asbestos.
