These beautiful natural stones are in the calcium carbonate family along with limestone and a few others. These floors can be cleaned and the grout stained (see above), they can be honed (to take out scratches and etches-caused by acidic spills), and they can be polished (to give them shine and luster). It is common for travertine to require some ‘filling’ of the holes from time to time. These natural stones require sealing (with a penetrating sealer) to provide a line of defense against staining and etching (from acidic spills). Some stone may require a more aggressive restoration process with grinding, honing, slippage removal etc..
We are happy to discuss your floor over the phone prior to scheduling a free site visit. Feel free to call.
