How do you polish terrazzo floors?

Sprinkle PH-neutral polishing powder onto the terrazzo. Turn on the buffer and run it across the terrazzo, covering the entire floor surface. The polishing powder will form a slurry as it works its way into the terrazzo. Once most of the powder has been absorbed, turn off the buffer and remove it from the floor.
