Worn, Dull Travertine Floor
This travertine floor is located in a condo near the cliffs of Del Mar, California. The condo owners called Set In Stone Restoration when they noticed that the travertine in a small office/bedroom area had a dirty appearance, despite regular sweeping and damp mopping. The stone also looked worn and had lost its luster.
Our Travertine Restoration Process
We honed the travertine to remove surface damage and restore the elegant honed finish of the floor. Although most of the embedded dirt was removed from the tiles during the honing process, we deep cleaned the tiles to remove any remaining residue. We also deep cleaned the grout lines, leaving this floor with a fresh, clean, like-new look. Our final step was to apply a solvent-based impregnating sealer to inhibit staining.
