TRAVERTINE CLEANING AND RESTORATION
Travertine is a compact variety of limestone that contains various sized holes that are formed as a result of the continual flow of water through the stone. This creates bands that streak the travertine. It is the holes that exist in the bands of travertine, creating its unique qualities.
For those who appreciate travertine in its natural state, it is important to understand the need for specialised maintenance. The holes that were created due to the water running through the travertine over time are easy targets for dirt and grime. If left unattended, this can cause discolouration to the stone, detracting from the natural elegance of the travertine. Travertine cleaning and restoration ensures that both the exterior shine and the inner strength of the floor is restored and maintained.
Tired of trying to keep dirt out of your open travertine? Travertine cleaning and restoration provides an intensive care for the floors which is important to maintain its shine.

compound that can be honed and polished to yield a beautiful easy-to-clean floor. We have a specialised team which offers complete travertine cleaning and restoration activities.
Naturally porous travertine has a tendency to open new voids over time; visually travertine will have a holy appearance which can vary from tiny pinholes to large irregular voids. This is due to the presence of gas bubbles when it is formed. Once the travertine is cut into tiles, the holes can be filled with epoxy fillers.
DO NOT FILL YOUR TRAVERTINE WITH CEMENTEOUS GROUT, CEMENT GROUT WILL GET DIRTY IN NO TIME
At posh floors we offer complete travertine restoration and cleaning for both Commercial and Domestic Premises.
Our Travertine cleaning and restoration process consists of a multiple step mechanical process using diamond abrasive pads and water. Generally this is a three step process that starts with grinding the surface of the stone with a course grit abrasive pad. After grinding the stone the second step is to hone the surface of the stone with a finer grit abrasive pad. Honing makes the surface of the stone very smooth but results in very little shine. After honing, the final step is to polish the surface of the stone with fine diamond abrasive to achieve the desired finish.
Because our process is wet, there is little or no dust created. We provide the best solution for cleaning travertine floors and travertine floor tiles.
