Dirt Trapped In Unfilled Honed Travertine

Located in Los Angeles, this unfilled travertine floor was very dirty from traffic and use. Sweeping and mopping were not enough, because the tiny holes in the travertine were filled with embedded grime and contaminants. The honed finish was also dull.

Our Travertine Cleaning and Honing Process

The homeowners wanted to keep the rustic, natural appearance of the travertine. At the homeowners request, we did not “float” the travertine, that is, we did not fill in the holes with color-tinted epoxy. We deep cleaned and sanitized the floor and then re-honed the travertine to a low sheen, just the way the homeowners wanted.

We achieved outstanding results, as usual, and the homeowners were very pleased.
