Be careful what you read on the internet about what to use to clean Terrazzo Floors with. A quick fix today may ruin it for tomorrow...You should avoid using acids on Terrazzo Floors. Acids can eat away at the marble stones and cause damage. Instead, you should use a neutral cleaner like Dawn or any antibacterial dish soap.
Muriatic acid is used mainly for cleaning grout that’s been allowed to set on the surface of stone or brick. The acid reacts with the base calcium compounds in the cement. Since terrazzo is basically polished cement and aggregate it’s likely that that acid would dull, roughen, or even erode the surface
Some chemicals to avoid using on terrazzo floors include:
All-purpose cleaners containing water soluble inorganic or crystallizing salts
Harmful alkali or acids
Cheap cleaners or sealers
