Travertine Floor Cleaning, Polishing and Sealing

Travertine floors are beautiful, make a statement, and will last forever if properly maintained. Without proper maintenance (cleaning, polish, and sealing), travertine floors can become etched, stained, pitted, and lose their luster and shine. Some issues could be costly or impossible to correct.

What is Travertine?

Travertine is a natural stone maintained differently from customary ceramic and porcelain tile flooring. Travertine is porous and, unless sealed, can easily absorb spills and pet accidents. Travertine is a beautiful stone found in many high-end and older homes. It is available in a wide variety of colors, which is why it is so popular with interior designers and many luxury home builders.

Do’s and Don’ts of Travertine Floor Cleaning

When cleaning travertine flooring, you should mop, sweep or vacuum them every three or four days to ensure no dirt or grime penetrates the pores. Also, be sure to utilize a cleaner specifically designed for travertine floors that do not have acidic or abrasive chemicals which can permanently damage the tiles: no Fabuloso, no Simple Green, and no vinegar and water. Vinegar is acidic and can etch travertine, and many other off-the-shelf floor cleaners on the market can strip sealers, clog pores, and stain many natural stones.

Should I Have My Travertine Flooring Sealed?

Yes! In fact, sealing a travertine floor is highly recommended. A quality sealer prevents dirt and moisture from seeping into the stone while protecting the stone’s beauty.

A quality sealer should provide excellent stain protection, oil, and water repellency and last for ten years or more years with proper maintenance.

How To Properly Maintain Travertine Flooring

Simply put, without proper maintenance, travertine can become permanently damaged or lose its luster and shine. As moisture, dirt, and stains penetrate the pores in your floor, discoloration, stains, etching, and scratches will be prevalent. If you stick to regular weekly maintenance and professional cleaning and sealing by a quality natural stone cleaning company, your stone floor will stay in pristine condition.
