Travertine is a unique stone that comes in many different finishes. Travertine is either filled or unfilled. What this means is that travertine naturally has holes that run throughout the stone. Some travertine owners like the rustic, natural look of unfilled travertine, while others prefer the sleek, uniform appearance of filled travertine, which is exactly what it sounds like — the holes are filled, giving the stone a smooth finish.
With time and use, travertine can become dirty, dull-looking, scratched, etched, cracked, chipped, or otherwise damaged. Many home and business owners see the poor condition of their travertine and assume they’ll have to come up with a hefty chunk of change to replace it. We’ve got great news for you. Travertine can be restored, not just to look better, but to look brand new again.
Tru-Clean Surface Care provides expert interior and exterior travertine services for homes, condos, offices, and other commercial properties, warehouses, retail stores, restaurants, hotels, and more – virtually anywhere travertine is located. We provide a full range of travertine care and maintenance services.
GRINDING UNEVEN TRAVERTINE TILES
Uneven tiles pose a trip-and-fall hazard. With our travertine grinding service, your floors not only look better but are safer. Travertine floors tiles that are even with grout lines are easier to clean than misaligned travertine floors. We can provide this service for you, giving your floors a uniform, monolithic appearance. Once we grind your travertine floor level, we hone and polish to perfection.
TRAVERTINE REFINISHING, HONING, AND POLISHING
If you don’t love the finish of your travertine, we can help. Perhaps it is too dull or too shiny. We can achieve the exact finish you want. If you have a new floor with some tiles that look more glossy than others, we can even out the finish.
Wear patterns, scratches, and spots can be virtually erased with travertine honing and we can add shine and achieve a beautiful semi-gloss or a glass-like polish for your travertine using the appropriate diamonds and polishing powders.
YOUR TRAVERTINE CLEANED AND SEALED
Cleaning and sanitizing are important for all types of travertine, but especially important for unfilled travertine, because dirt, grime, bacteria, allergens, pet urine salts, and other contaminants can become trapped in the holes. We provide professional deep cleaning services, using stone-safe cleaners that are highly effective.
We highly recommend following a travertine deep-cleaning service with our travertine sealing services. Sealing gives travertine floors, showers, tub surrounds, walls, and other travertine surfaces resistance against stains and discoloration. Travertine stain removal can be time consuming and expensive. Sealing your stone makes good sense.
TRAVERTINE STAIN REMOVAL
Most travertine stains can be removed, and the original finish of your travertine can be restored, free from stains and discolorations. Our skilled technicians are trained in poultice applications and other stain removal methods.
The varied natural veining and coloring of travertine can be enhanced using special sealers. If you want your travertine to have a little extra pop and pizzaz, ask about our travertine enhancing services.
Tru-Clean Surface Care can repair chips, cracks, and other damage, blending the repair site with the surrounding area. We follow up with honing and polishing to match the existing finish of your travertine floor, countertop, or other surfaces.
TRAVERTINE GROUT RESTORATION
If your travertine has grout lines that require professional attention, we provide a full range of grout services. We can clean, restore, color seal, and repair existing grout, or regrout, if necessary.
Regular cleaning is valuable for simple, day-to-day care of travertine floors. But over time, day to day traffic and usage can leave floors with grout lines that just won’t come clean, shiny scratches, and increasingly obvious traffic patterns. As these problems develop, you become more and more dissatisfied with the appearance of the floors until it’s time for another round of professional restoration. With our regularly scheduled maintenance program, your floors can look great all the time, without the need for periodic restoration.
