Wink rust stains in terrazzo

During Hurrican Katrina I brought an outdoor iron table and chairs indoors so it wouldn't get blown into my large windows. Anyway, I ended up having 5 ft of water in my home for weeks. So, I now have lots of rust stains on my white terrazzo floor where each leg of a chair or table was sitting. Can they be removed without re-finishing the whole floor?

They make rust remover for this situation. They use a poultice chemical. Some stains will be difficult if not impossible to remove, but it's worth a shot. Here's one site I came up with.

Red face rust stain on cultured marble

You answered my question about the rust stain on cultured marble but I couldn't figure out how to get back to you.
I found the product you were talking about but they want me to buy six tubes of it. Can you tell me how I would go about finding a retail dealer. It's called RSR-2000. I can't seem to find a dealer in Houston for it.

A local stone dealer should have cleaners and poultices for natural stone. If lucky, you may find the products at a local home center or hardware. Products are available online. For instance, http://www.stonecare.com/
