Travertine in Poor Condition
Homeowners in Poway had not had their travertine floors professionally cleaned and sealed in years. The finish was scratched and dull and the grout lines were embedded with dirt and contaminants.
Our Travertine Restoration Process
First, we honed the travertine to remove a thin upper layer of the stone, virtually erasing any surface damage. To restore the slight reflection of the high honed finish, we gave the floor a light polish. We deep cleaned and sanitized the floor to remove any residue left from honing and polishing, paying close attention to the grout lines. Finally, we applied an impregnating sealer. Sealing the travertine will help inhibit staining, which is especially important in kitchen and dining areas where spills are most likely to happen.
The homeowners loved the brand new look of their travertine.
