Terrazzo Flooring

By Kirsten Kapsin, (284 words) Posted in Green Flooring on February 24, 2009

Terrazzo floors have been around for centuries. The first terrazzo floor types were made with waste that was left over from the stone cutting era. Marble was used as an aggregate in these ancient terrazzo floors. Aggregate is crushed particles of a particular material (e.g. sand; stone; slag) that's used to help strengthen the overall material. A popular aggregate used in terrazzo flooring nowadays is recycled glass.

Photo of a residential installation of a Terrazzo floorTerrazzo flooring made with recycled glass is not only beautiful and durable, they're also environmentally friendly. In fact, up to 95% of the terrazzo floor's total content is waste glass; the remainder is cement and/or epoxy. Of course, terrazzo floors aren't entirely eco-friendly, as the production process used to manufacture cement requires the use of high-intensive machines. These machines contribute large amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) directly into the atmosphere.

One of the upsides to terrazzo flooring is that they do not pollute volatile organic compounds* (VOCs) after they're installed. So while the manufacturing process may result in pollution, once they're installed, you won't have to worry about them contaminating your indoor air quality (IAQ). Plus, green terrazzo floors are also durable and relatively easy to maintain.

You can learn more about the pros and cons of terrazzo flooring in FindAnyFloor.com's Green Site. Have a comment or personal experience with terrazzo flooring? Feel free to leave a comment at the end of this blog!

*VOCs are carbon-based, chemical compounds that are commonly found in flooring materials and flooring products. They are linked to respiratory disease, allergies, and increased cancer risk.
