Travertine stone floors have been a popular choice for homeowners and businesses for centuries, prized for their natural beauty and durability. However, even these robust floors can develop holes and other imperfections over time. This is where Tru-Clean Surface Care steps in, providing professional travertine floor cleaning and repair services that restore your stone floors to their original glory.

This blog post will explore why holes appear in travertine stone, our travertine cleaning, polishing, and sealing process,  and how Tru-Clean Surface Care can address these issues and provide lasting solutions.


Why Do Holes Appear in Travertine Stone?

Travertine is a type of limestone formed through the natural process of mineral deposition in hot springs and limestone caves. Its porous structure has tiny holes and voids throughout the stone. These characteristics give travertine its unique appearance but can also lead to cavities appearing over time.

When purchasing travertine, some resellers sell stone tiles with the cavities in the stone already filled.

The primary reasons for holes appearing in travertine floors are:

Erosion: Everyday foot traffic, cleaning, and exposure to moisture can cause the softer areas of the stone to wear away, resulting in holes and pits.

Dissolution: As a sedimentary rock, travertine can dissolve when exposed to acidic substances, found in some cleaning products, food, and drink spills.

Natural voids: Some holes in the travertine are part of its natural formation and may become more visible as the stone wears down over time.

How Tru-Clean Surface Care Can Repair and Restore Your Travertine Floors

Tru-Clean Surface Care specializes in professional travertine floor cleaning and repair, offering comprehensive solutions for all your travertine maintenance needs.

Thorough cleaning: Our technicians use specialized equipment and non-acidic, stone-safe cleaning solutions to remove dirt, grime, and stains without causing damage to your floors.

Hole repair: We assess the extent of the damage and use a color-matched filler to repair holes and voids in your travertine floors. This helps restore the stone’s original appearance and prevents further damage from occurring.

Polishing and honing: Using diamond-impregnated pads or polishing agents, our experts can polish and hone your travertine floors to the desired finish, whether you prefer a high-gloss shine or a more natural matte appearance. This process also helps to eliminate minor scratches and etching.

Sealing: To protect your travertine floors from future damage, we can apply a high-quality, impregnating sealer that penetrates the stone and provides a protective barrier against moisture, stains, and erosion.
