Thank you so much for helping me with my grout problem. It was such a disaster. I didn't even know that my floor could be regrouted; I thought it was just ruined. I also appreciate your advice on how to keep it clean and nice. Thank you.

Tile Cleaners Brisbane® is your specialist service provider for all travertine tile & grout cleaning, stripping & sealing. If you need advice on how to clean your old or brand new travertine surfaces and tile grout, and how best to reseal your travertine so it stays looking new, or need a professional to do it for you, then you have come to the right place.

All porous tiles should be sealed, sealing your tiles will help prevent & reduce staining. Sealing will keep most stains suspended at the surface of your travertine creating a barrier that provides protection against chemical attack, deterioration and contamination. Sealing is the first important step towards protecting your natural travertine against stains.

Travertine flooring is a very stylish material that is functional and aesthetically attractive while bringing a very appealing, old-world character to any home or business. Travertine pavers are especially attractive around the swimming pool and surrounds with no two tiles looking the same. Travertine will often appear fibrous or concentric and can come in a white, tan or a cream like colour.

Travertine is formed in mineral springs, especially around hot springs, underground rivers and in limestone caves. Travertine is different to limestone (sedimentary) and marble(metamorphic) with the main characteristic of travertine being the holes within the stone created as a result of gases escaping as the travertine is formed. The resulting stone is a smooth and very hard substance further characterized by its porous surface.

Extensive deposits of travertine exist at Tivoli, near Rome, which is where the stone receives its name. Tivoli was known as Tibur in ancient Roman times. The ancient name for the stone was lapis tiburtinus meaning Tibur stone, which has evolved to travertine.

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

Common Surface Finishes for Travertine

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

Cleaning Travertine Tiles

Different cleaning and maintenance methods should be used on travertine depending on its finish and whether it's sealed or left in its natural state. In general, Travertine tiles should be cleaned and maintained with non acidic products, and it is recommended to have travertine professionally cleaned every few years to maintain their appearance and restore the fresh look once the tiles start to appear tired following regular daily use. 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. polished travertine bathroom floor Brisbane

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 can vary in type, lifetime(durability), stain protective properties, and slip resisting properties. Tile Cleaners Brisbane® seal your travertine tiles with one of our highest quality water based products.

Two main sealing options exist for travertine tiles

  • Deep Penetrating Impregnating Sealer
  • (Transparent Finish/Colour Enhancing Finish)

  • Topical Sealer
  • (Gloss/Satin/Matte Finish)

deepshield moisture travertine

A deep penetrating impregnating sealer protects travertine and grout from water and oil based stains by chemically reacting with the surface pores using nano-technology to create a breathable protective barrier. An impregnating sealer protects the travertine surface and grout from absorbing stains while also resulting in cleaning and maintenance becoming much easier. Australia's Deepshield™ range of impregnating water based sealers last for up to 10 years while Deepshield™ Gold, based on the latest fluoro-bond technology lasts for up to 15 years. A penetrating impregnating transparent sealer enters the pores of your stone and once cured will not change the look of the stone. A penetrating colour enhancing sealer is designed to enhance and enrich the natural look of stone surfaces.

Tile Cleaners Brisbane® technicians are experts at applying all types of sealer and will ensure your travertine looks its absolute best. Tile Cleaners Brisbane® can apply a topical sealer when especially required to create a high gloss, satin sheen or matte finish to your surfaces. Topical sealer is also helpful in situations where the old solvent based sealer cannot be completely removed from your travertine or when required to hide certain types of damage. Topical sealer's have a life expectancy of around 3 years.

You can easily test how porous your natural travertine is by applying a drop of water to the surface and watching how the water is absorbed. You can then see how any type of water based stain is absorbed by the travertine tile surface and grout.

Types of sealer's used on travertine tiles

Water based sealer's and solvent-based sealer's can both be used on travertine, however unless absolutely required for a specific reason, we always recommend applying a water based sealer that doesn't produce harmful fumes during application and removal. Water based sealers are easier to apply and remove and also require less drying time. One of the most popular product ranges available is Australian made Deepshield™ quality impregnating water based sealer's that prolong the life of your surfaces by taking full advantage of recent advancements in nano technology, providing unmatched long-term stain resistance and reliability.

It is important to ensure the correct water based sealer is applied to your travertine tile which will also depend on whether they are indoors or outdoors as most sealer's will not last long outside due to being designed for internal use. If your travertine is outdoors, it is important to use a water based sealer that is specifically designed for outdoor travertine.

There are two types of impregnating clear sealer, water based sealer & solvent based. In the past solvent based sealers were more widely used as they used to absorb deeper into the travertine and grout and would also last longer. Today however, thanks to new technological advancements, it is recommended only to use water based sealers, that last much longer and cause less potential damage to health and property.

Solvent based products are more difficult to apply and can create major problems when applied incorrectly as they are very hard to remove. Tile Cleaners Brisbane® recommends our clients apply a long lasting water based sealer to their travertine tiles and grout. Topical sealer's (glossy plastic coating over the top of the travertine) are still used on travertine, but these older style sealers can trap moisture in the stone and make the surface slippery when wet. When a topical sealer wears in higher traffic areas, the entire surface usually needs to be stripped and re-sealed.

It is very important to ensure that tiles achieve their cleanest possible condition prior to being sealed. This will protect the appearance of the tile, and importantly ensure that there won't be any dirt, stains or other debris caught under the layer of sealant.

To provide the best possible protection from oil and water-based stains; to maintain the look and slip resistance of your travertine and to prevent damaging moisture from being trapped within the stone, it is recommended to seal your travertine with a high quality, invisible, fully breathable impregnating sealer.

Stripping Travertine Tiles

When your travertine tiles begin to appear dull and start to stain easily, that usually means your previous sealer is wearing off and your travertine tiles are in danger of permanent damage. Tile Cleaners Brisbane® strip/remove all necessary old sealer from your travertine tiles, restoring their natural fresh look using our state of the art cleaning machinery.

As Travertine tiles can be sealed, previous sealer may need to be removed and re-applied after it starts to wear off, this usually depends on the type of sealer used, method used during application and the amount of traffic or use. This process is called stripping and sealing, and is usually required every 2-10 years.

No matter where your travertine tiles are, Tile Cleaners Brisbane® will strip, clean and professionally reseal them for you. In your kitchen, shower, bathroom, around the swimming pool, your backyard, outdoors or any hard to reach indoor areas.
