Listello Mosaic Needed Special Care
This stylish floor was installed with natural travertine tile and bordered with a delicate listello mosaic inlay. Listello means “thin strip” in Italian and is often used as a decorative border in tile installations to break up the repetitive look of the floor.
Unfortunately, unsightly dirt and debris had settled into the grout, and the floor was in need of a good deep cleaning, as well as polishing and honing. It was important not to damage the listello mosaic inlay.
The professionals at Set in Stone Restoration were able to carefully clean the travertine tile and grout without damaging the delicate listello mosaic inlay. The floor was then polished and honed to the homeowner’s preference.
