My son recently bought an older house, and after peeking under the carpet, we found terrazzo floors beneath it. The floor was soiled, dull and dingy, and we considered covering it with tile or laminate, but decided to get an estimate on restoring the terrazzo first-and we're so glad we did!
Based on online reviews, we contacted three of the top-rated floor/stone restoration companies for estimates and MAINSTREET CLEANING AND RESTORATION lead the pack, both in price and customer service!
The company's owner, Corey, met me at the house and educated me on terrazzo while walking through the house and examining the floors. He was knowledgeable, and happily shared what he knew! Corey and I discussed the fact that we were working with a budget, so he explained the various options available and their costs. He said he'd be sure to break them down separately on the written estimate, so we could pick and choose what services would be the best fit for us. In an effort to help us save money, Corey showed me how to carefully pull up the carpet, without pulling out the carpet tack strips and causing holes in the terrazzo-which are rather expensive to repair. In the process, he actually ended up pulling all the carpet himself! He also demonstrated how to take out the tack strips and grind down the nails without damaging the floor, so we could choose to do it ourselves instead of paying for it to be done. I found it refreshing that he would take the time and effort to teach me this when in the end, it would lessen his fee!
We hired MAINSTREET CLEANING AND RESTORATION, and scheduled them for the end of December, after we had some plumbing and electrical work completed. Denis arrived on time and ready to work! He was a great guy-polite, friendly and he happily answered any questions I had. He explained each step as he went and spent the entire day hard at work! We were amazed with the results! We had no idea the old, worn, dirty terrazzo could be so beautiful-there were colors in the floor we hadn't even noticed prior to the cleaning! Denis' is a master at his trade, has a strong work ethic and his manners are above reproach!
I highly recommend Mainstreet Cleaning and Restoration!!!
