Travertine is a form of limestone, and is related to marble, actually falling somewhere between marble and limestone in terms of its development over thousands of years, deposited by mineral springs, especially hot springs, underground rivers and other water sources.

Polished Travertine tile is very vulnerable to acids, which can make it unsuitable for certain installations. Kitchens are a poor choice, as orange juice and other acidic foods may be spilled on the tile, potentially damaging it. Travertine tile should be well sealed to protect it from moisture, spilled items, and wear and tear, and it can be a good idea to periodically strip and reseal the tile to keep it in good condition.

Common Surface Finishes for Travertine Tiles

Honed Travertine: The surface of the tile is sanded to create a matte finish
Tumbled Travertine: Travertine is tumbled with gravel and bearings, giving it a rough, aged appearance
Brushed Travertine: A wire brush is used to give the surface of the travertine tile a worn, textured surface
Filled Travertine: The pores in the Travertine are filled with colored resin or cement to produce a solid surface
Polished Travertine: The Travertine is sanded and polished, producing a shiny look

Travertine tile often has a fibrous or concentric appearance and exists in white, tan and cream-colored varieties. It is formed by a process of rapid precipitation of calcium carbonate, often at the mouth of a hot spring or in a limestone cave. In the latter it can form stalactites, stalagmites and other speleothems. It is frequently used in Italy and elsewhere as a building material.

The resulting stone is a smooth and very hard substance further characterized by its porous surface. These pores are the result of gases escaping as the travertine is formed.

By the time it is quarried, travertine is naturally beautiful - a smooth, dense stone that exhibits a notable creamy color that evokes a certain old-world refinement.

Extensive deposits exist at Tivoli, Italy, near Rome. In fact, travertine derives its name from this town. Tivoli was known as Tibur in ancient Roman times. The ancient name for the stone was lapis tiburtinus meaning tibur stone, which has been corrupted to travertine.

Different cleaning and maintenance instructions and methods should be used on polished Travertine depending on wether it's sealed or left unsealed. In General, polished Travertine tiles should be cleaned and maintained with non acidic products, and it is recommended to get them professionally cleaned and buffed every few years to help make them last longer and bring up the fresh look after the tiles start to look tired daily use.

If you have got the polished travertine in your home we suggest you seal them before you damage them.

Travertine can be left in its natural state, with no polishing. Etched by acids. Porous with many visible holes, often filled with epoxy. Polishing unfilled travertine can be tricky. Polishing powders tend to accumulate in the holes and can make clean-up difficult. Because it is soft and has epoxy-filled holes, it should never be cleaned at pressures above 800 PSI and then only if the grout is in good condition.

Sealants are layer forming treatments that produce a shiny (or natural) protective film on the surface. This sealer must be stripped and re applied from time to time. Different sealants are recommended for indoors than outdoors, and sealants cant vary in type, lifetime (durability), stain protective properties, and slipp resisting properties.

Acid Etching

Travertine, like other calcareous stones, is referred to as acid sensitive. Calcareous stones are readily dissolved in acid, therefore acidic products should not be used on Travertine tiles.

Travertine tiles in general, including Polished Travertine tiles, are susceptible to damage from some acidic substances. Substances such as carbonated drinks, fruit juices, vinegar and sauces can damage the surface of the polished tile over time, so in order to protect your tiles from these things you must make sure your Polished Travertine tiles are sealed and always clean up spills straight away.
