When we removed the carpet tack strips from a terrazzo floor it pulled large chucks out of the terrazzo. Is there a method to remove the tack strips that will not destroy the terrazzo?

The best way to remove carpet tack strips is to cut the nails off flush with the terrazzo. Use an angle grinder and a dry diamond saw blade. If you do not have an angle grinder and the job is small you can take a hack saw blade and cut the nails off flush. The nail will still be in the terrazzo but will not be noticed.

TIP Once you have cut the nails flush with the terrazzo you can grind them flat and flush with the terrazzo surfaces using a carbide grinding stone attached to your hand grinder.
