Travertine is a popular flooring choice for both indoor and outdoor installations. It comes in a wide range of colours and textures and is easier to maintain than most flooring options available in the market. This material is very durable and robust, but it can lose its lustre over time. At Absolute Floor Polishing, we know how to restore the floor’s shine until it looks as good as new.
How Do We Polish Travertine Tiles?
Travertine tiles look dull because of a layer of old grime and dirt on the surface. If you remove this layer, the natural beauty of the flooring will shine through. Here’s a look at what we do as a part of our travertine tile polishing services:
- Removing the Grime – We first remove the old grime and wax by using a travertine stripper solution. We apply this solution and wait until all of the grime dissolves before cleaning it off. We then use a steam cleaner to remove lingering traces of dirt, wax, and the stripper solution.
- Repairing the Surface – The next step is to repair any small cracks, dents, or chips on the surface. We use epoxy and other filler agents to correct imperfections. Our technicians will make sure the filler material matches the travertine tile colour.
- Polishing – We use a grinder with different grits of polishing pads to buff away the surface of the tiles gently. Buffing removes minor scratches and stains to reveal the beauty of the tiles.
Once the polishing is complete, we clean the floor and seal it with a special sealant. The original lustre of the stone will shine through.
