Travertine Cleaning and Sealing Process

June 08 2015

Travertine tile is a very popular option for many interior and exterior finishes currently.  The tile truly is a beautiful addition to any home, but it must be properly cared for. If it isn’t, it will look dingy and worn and the true finish of the product will not stand out. Before you decide if this is the best option for you, it is important to understand the maintenance and other tips to keep the tile looking brand new, all the time!

 

Whether it is installed indoors or outdoors makes a big difference. Naturally, surfaces that are installed outside will have more wear and tear. In order to keep the travertine tile looking like new, it is important to apply a sealant immediately. Some tiles may not require this if they are pre-sealed, but most will. You can tell so whether or not the tile absorbs water. If it does, then you need to seal it. There are different types of sealants you can use, so we highly recommend seeking out a specialist to help you make those decisions. All About Pressure Cleaning offers premium quality sealers with the longest lasting UV protection, which is very important in the hot South Florida weather. Some of the finishes you can choose from are the wet look, semi-gloss or matte finish. This is all based on personal preference. All sealers are also no sheen and no slip. Our team of professionals will ensure that the tile is perfectly clean before applying any sealant.

 

After a sealant is applied, it is important to maintain the new, clean look for the tile. You can do this by pressure cleaning and removing stains on a regular basis.
