    How would you clean this Terrazzo Floor?

    Thanks all for the help. Job is not potentially until October and I had assumed the dark edges were from the metal framing. Can’t say I’ve ever honed a floor before, if that’s what it needs I’ll probably pass.

    What's your favorite ENCAP prespray?

    Well I was very impressed with the Bonnet Pro Rocket. Great results on spots my previous encap solution could not remove. However the citrus smell was pretty overwhelming at 4oz per gallon. This may stop me reordering [emoji848]
