Brisbane Travertine Stone Cleaning

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.

Travertine 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.

Travertine tiles like all stone tiles has variation in both colour and pattern, despite the fact that they have been factory sorted for both.

Travertine is really tough and very dense so it can be used almost anywhere. The most popular uses are kitchens, bathrooms, living and entertainment areas.

Travertine is one of several natural stones that are used for paving patios and garden paths. It is sometimes known as travertine limestone and as travertine marble. The stone is characterised by pitted holes and troughs in its surface. It comes in a variety of colors from grey to coralred. Travertine is most commonly available in tile sizes for floor installations.

The look and feel of travertine tiles is luxurious, elegant and chic, which is why this material has proven so popular with home decorators and designers alike. Travertine is a naturally occurring stone that gives a natural feel to the decor without being too rugged or rustic, but it can require some careful care on your part if you wish to preserve its beauty and durability.

The most vulnerable spots are kitchens and entertainment & BBQ areas where food and drink spillages are more likely. Even a light, cooking grade, olive oil will leave a residue unless the stone is sealed. However, if you are a fastidious cleaner and careful cook, sealing might not be necessary.

Sealing Travertine Tiles

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.

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.

Acid Etching

Travertine is etched by acids, including soft drinks and juice. Acid-based cleaning chemicals can also etch. Absorbs oils and other liquids and is more easily stained than marble. Therefore, Travertine in a kitchen or bathroom must always be sealed. Travertine should only be cleaned with a neutral or mild alkaline-based cleaner.

Travertine is porous, and easily stained and is etched by acids. Avoid setting beverage glasses directly on Travertine as they leave rings. Fruit juice, carbonated beverages or other acids will etch (remove shiny surface) if allowed to remain on Travertine. Wipe up acid spill immediately, and wipe surface with wet cloth. If surface is etched, polishing may be required.
