If you have purchased a home that already had travertine tile installed or if you did not receive care and maintenance tips when your tile was installed, polishing the travertine tile can seem like a task fraught with danger. No one wants to damage such an important show piece in the home, but travertine that has lost its polished luster definitely needs maintenance.
To begin Prestige Floor and Carpet Care LLC will make sure your travertine tile is clean before the maintenance or restoration of your travertine begins.
After cleaning we inspect the travertine to find holes. Travertine has holes that are filled with sanded grout after installation, or were filled with epoxy and honed.
If the travertine holes were filled with sanded grout, and there are holes starting to appear, then they need to be filled with sanded grout to keep the color and style match. The travertine and grout must be cleaned and allow the grout to dry to get the best color match. If the holes were filled with epoxy, the travertine still needs to be cleaned first to get the best color match of the epoxy.
