Home 9 Before After 9 Massachusetts School Gets Terrazzo Floors Patched and Polished

Maintaining and updating school facilities is essential for the health and safety of students, staff, and visitors. In recent years, many schools have undergone renovations and upgrades to address outdated facilities, and Atherton Hough School in Quincy, MA, is no exception. Among the necessary updates were new partitions and adjustments to handicapped bathroom stalls, which required the removal of old partitions and many terrazzo patches.

However, renovations like these often come with a secondary problem: the need for floor restoration. After the old partitions were removed, the floors required extensive patching and polishing to restore their original appearance. Fortunately, the school turned to Boston Stone Restoration, a trusted company that specializes in restoring and protecting natural stone surfaces, for assistance.

Boston Stone Restoration started by patching the floors with terrazzo to ensure a smooth, even surface. Then, they polished the floors to give them a high-gloss finish. Finally, they applied a coating to protect the floors from future damage and make them easier to clean.

The protective coating is an essential step in preserving the floors’ appearance and longevity. High-traffic areas like schools can quickly wear down floors, causing them to become dull, scratched, and stained. A protective coating helps prevent these issues by creating a barrier between the floor and foot traffic, preventing scratches, stains, and other damage.

A polished and protected floor contributes to a healthier and safer school environment. Properly maintained floors are easier to clean and disinfect, helping to reduce the spread of germs and bacteria. They also improve indoor air quality by reducing the accumulation of dust and allergens, which can cause respiratory problems.

Maintaining and updating school facilities is essential, and restoring floors is an essential part of the process. By partnering with Boston Stone Restoration, Atherton Hough School was able to repair and protect its floors while also improving the cleanliness and safety of the school environment. The high-gloss finish not only looks beautiful but also contributes to the overall health and safety of students and staff.
