We have a passion for restoring travertine to its best possible condition. From polishing floors to cleaning and sealing backsplashes, we can get your travertine showroom ready. When it comes to bathtub surrounds, walls, and showers, our expert technicians know how to remove soap buildup, deep clean, and sanitize so your surfaces sparkle once again. We also clean, seal, and refinish travertine in pool and patio areas, and other outdoor living spaces, including hot tub surrounds, exterior walls, stairs, waterline tile, and much more.
Honing & Polishing
Does your travertine have dull areas associated with wear patterns, scratches, etches or spots? Was the finish on your travertine damaged by improper cleaning products? Certified Stone Professionals can hone your travertine surfaces to eliminate these imperfections, revealing the new surface underneath. Using the appropriate diamonds or polishing powders to restore the finish you want, whether matte, semi-gloss or gloss finish. With our honing and polishing services, our expert technicians can achieve the exact finish you are looking for.
Are your travertine tiles uneven? Do you want your tiles to be flattened to the grout lines to facilitate easier cleaning? We can grind away the excess stone (a process called lippage removal) to create a flat, level surface using state-of-the art diamond grinding technology.
Certified Stone Professionals can remove many stains and discolorations on your travertine. We can answer questions if you want to attempt DIY stain removal (see our stain management app), or we can remove the stain for you.
Cleaning & Sealing
Cleaning processes for travertine vary based on the surface condition and type of dirt or oil being removed. Regardless, one thing is certain. It’s easier to keep travertine clean and elegant with periodic professional deep cleaning services, using non-acidic, highly-effective cleaning solutions. Once we finish cleaning and restoring your stone, we highly recommend you have us apply a sealer to inhibit staining. While most stains can be removed, it’s best to avoid the time-consuming, expensive and often frustrating process of stain removal by having your stone sealed.
Repair & Tile Replacement
We can fill holes and fix cracks and chips, expertly blending the repair site with the surrounding area, and honing and polishing it to match the finish on the rest of your travertine. Although it is rare for a travertine tile to be beyond repair, sometimes tile replacement is necessary. Our craftsmen can, in many cases, remove your affected tile without damaging neighboring tiles, install the replacement tile, level it with the surrounding area, and then match the finish as closely as possible.
Travertine is a unique stone in that it has naturally occurring holes. These holes are either left unfilled on purpose, for a rustic, casual look, or they are filled in for a more elegant appearance. If you want to have your unfilled travertine filled, or if the holes in your filled travertine are coming loose or reappearing, we provide expert travertine floating services.
