Repairing Travertine Floors

If your travertine floor has suffered any damage, fret not. Tru-Clean Surface Care excels in repairing travertine, ensuring that any chips or cracks are expertly addressed.

Because Travertines is formed deep within hot springs, the stone has a naturally rustic appearance. Part of that appearance is due to how hot water vapor escaped the stone as it formed. The vapor created bubbles in the forming stone that left behind escape holes. Depending on how the travertine is cut into tiles, its surface may have dozens of holes; some are visible, and some are under the stone’s surface, which may take years to appear.

Travertine tiles are often sold in both filled and unfilled versions. Unfilled stones come with the holes still visible, providing the homeowner with a natural or “earthy” look.  If the homeowner would rather the holes be filled, this is done at the factory before the tile is installed. If the home was purchased after the tile was installed and the homeowner does not desire the natural look, Tru-Clean Surface Care can fill those holes or divots the same way they are filled at the factory.

Polishing Travertine for a Pristine Finish

Over time, travertine can lose some of its luster. Tru-Clean Surface Care’s polishing services can bring back that original sheen, making your floors look as good as new. Our artisans use diamond polishing powders, pads, and high-speed burnishers to deliver a mirror or matte finish to your natural stone.

Travertine Sealing for Longevity and Stone Protection

An essential aspect of travertine maintenance is sealing. This process protects the stone from spills and stains. Tru-Clean Surface Care uses industry-leading professional sealers that penetrate your stone, providing much more than “surface” protection.  Our sealers ensure your floor’s longevity and beauty.
