For 11 years, this honed finish travertine floor had never been professionally cleaned. This floor was not stained, scratched, etched, chipped, or damaged, but it did need a good cleaning and some minor restoration, as you can see in the BEFORE image. Our restoration process was rather simple.
First, we honed the stone to remove minor imperfections and cleaned the grout lines. Next we polished the floor a little bit. Lightly polishing travertine that has a honed finish adjusts the level of sheen. This is all the floor really needed, and we were able to give the floor a hint of shine, just like our customer wanted. The AFTER image demonstrates the clean, beautiful results.
