Travertine is a type of limestone created from a continual flow of water through the stone. This natural process is responsible for the beautiful banding which gives travertine it’s unique and captivating appearance. There’s nothing quite like travertine tiles for creating a unique earthy look inside a home or outdoor area.
The flow of water also creates tiny holes in the bands, and these are magnets for dirt and grime. Most travertine tiles are filled to avoid the accumulation of dirt, but even so, if left unattended, the built-up grime will detract from the natural elegance of the stone. It’s a good thing we’re nearby because our travertine floor cleaning and polishing process will take care of it efficiently and affordably.

  • Cleaning the travertine tiles and grout
  • Stripping off old sealants from travertine surface
  • Remove trapped dirt with specialist solvents and industrial wet vacuum system

To summarise our polishing process would be similar to sanding wood, or buffing a finger nail to a high shine. We also offer stone repair with epoxy resin to fill travertine holes and cracks before we restore the shine to the floor.

  • Filling of travertine holes and cracks with epoxy resin
  • Honing the floor with diamond sanding pads to remove scratches and etch marks which may have been caused by acidic spillages such as wine, vinegar or bathroom products.
  • Restoration is completed by honing the floor with an 800-grit diamond sanding pad.

A honed finish that can be created with an 800-grit diamond sanding pad will have a very feint reflection. Some people might call this matt and is particularly useful in busy households where light scuffs will not be very noticeable. Most of our customers have a honed finish, especially with travertine and limestone tiles.

The wonderful thing about calcium-containing tiles is that they’re soft and can be easily polished to a higher shine. We can offer varying degrees if shine, from satin to extreme gloss. Please do ask us to perform a demonstration and we can give you a price for each result. If you decide later on that the gloss is not suitable then we can always hone it down again.

We are fully certified in travertine cracked tile repair and cleaning. We use only industry-approved products for guaranteed quality. The most common products we use are:

  • a high pH cleaning solution used only in the professional industry
  • a neutral pH cleaning solution used to rinse off any strong chemicals
  • a low pH solution to remove limescale from ceramics and porcelain. This solution can be used on stone but is usually followed by a sanding process.
  • In some cases we may use an oxidising bleach to remove stains that can’t be removed through sanding.
  • Sealants – impregnating or topical coating wax

For stone tiles we have two types of sealants – impregnating and topical wax.

Impregnating sealers are invisible and soak into the tiny holes of stone and grout. It does not offer an additional shine to the floor but the Colour Enhancer can give the stone a wet look and the floor can appear slightly darker and more nourished. We often use Colour Enhancer on slate. Because Colour Enhancer is solvent-based, the room must be vacated for at least 8 hours, otherwise you could end up leaving footprints on the floor.

If you’re looking for an impregnating sealer that does not darken the colour of the stone we highly recommend a water-based sealer which dries much faster and the room can be entered as soon as we leave.

Topical wax coatings are recommended for use on porous tiles that can’t be polished to a high shine. Examples would be some variations of limestone and most certainly Victorian tiles. It’s a bit like a waxy varnish that offers our customers a surface that’s easier to maintain.

Cracks are caused by movement underneath the tiles. Examples are:

  • Air pockets in the foundation where the floor wasn’t levelled correctly, causing the tile to collapse under pressure.
  • Heat transfer near a doorway where the cold air meets the warm air that’s inside the house
  • Heat transfer caused by underfloor heating, where one tile might be colder than the other.
