Never use wax or acrylic finish on natural travertine stone.
When polishing hardwood or metal, it is necessary to use a product such as wax polish or polyurethane. However, this is not the case for travertine natural stone floors. Products such as acrylic wax make a natural stone look worse by yellowing over a short period. The wax layer prevents you from seeing the natural beauty of your stone. If you have a buildup of wax, we can strip it from your floor before the polishing begins.
Polishing involves a process, not a product.
When discussing polishing, we don't mean adding a product or wax. Instead, we are referring to the process of polishing. Our travertine polishing process uses a series of diamond-encrusted pads to polish the stone. Polishing removes scratching, dull areas, and etching from your floors. Deep scratches may need to be ground first and then honed before being polished. Depending on your needs, we can give your floor a matt, semi-gloss, and high-gloss finish.
Travertine stone naturally has open holes because it is a sedimentary stone. Sometimes people install this stone without filling those holes because they like the look. However, most of our customers want the holes repaired.
Most of the time, travertine has holes filled in at the factory. Over time, filled travertine holes will return and need repair. Fortunately, we are so good at filling the holes you won't be able to remember where they were when we are done! Check out our video below.
We can repair any grout lines that are damaged or worn low. The grout is color sealed after the repairs are made and look brand new.
After the travertine is polished, it is necessary to seal the naturally occurring pores on the stone's surface. We use a penetrative sealer that protects the stone from permanent staining for two years. It does this without changing its appearance or gloss in any way.
How much does travertine polishing cost?
Prices depend on how heavily worn or scratched natural stone floors are. The cost varies from $3 per sq foot and up. The price depends on if the travertine needs to be may need to be ground, honed, or have any wax removed before the polishing.
