You may have seen it, but paid very little attention to it… that hard, speckled terrazzo floor with a dull yellow finish in your parents or grandparents kitchen. Today’s terrazzo restoration changes the entire game. It seems contractors were pouring this stuff like crazy in the ’50’s.

The cable industry, like many big buisnesses throughout the world are run by people with no conscience. For them it’s not even about the money anymore but it’s about what they can get away with.

For an excellent concrete floor acid stain application all surfaces must be completely dry, prepared and tested as described above. Acid Stain should be shaken well and poured directly into a plastic sprayer with a plastic filter and internal acid resistant plastic parts. The sprayer should be continuously pumped to keep a constant pressure while applying concrete floor acid stain. We are very partial to a battery operated backback sprayer sold by Crusader Manufacturing which will spray 120 gallons on a single charge. It sells for around $200.00 and if you are going to be doing a lot of staining it is well worth the cost.
