Travertine: From Rock to Modern Day

Travertine is formed over centuries from the gradual accumulation of calcium from seashells and snails in natural spring beds. The water flow from the springs gives the stone its characteristics and holes. Travertine has character marked by distinct patterns and a warm, earthy palette.

As we journey through time, we find the ancient civilizations that first recognized travertine's unparalleled beauty and versatility. From the Colosseum in Rome to the grand structures of ancient Persia, travertine has been a cherished building material, standing as a testament to its enduring appeal.

 

Even though it is considered to be a soft stone, it can be honed and polished. Cracks and holes can be repaired by using custom-matching epoxy to match the veins and counters.

 

Its rich history and unique attributes have positioned it as the high-end choice for tiles in modern homes. Over time travertine needs to be polished and restored. Please give us a call at (386) 682-2236 for a free in-home estimate and evaluation. 

Our Travertine Floor Polishing Process: 

Travertine Polishing Cost and Pricing

Our first step involves honing and polishing the stone with a rotary stone polishing machine. The machine polishes the travertine with diamond resins that have different grits.

 

The lower the grits get, the deeper the scratching out; this is known as "Honing" in the industry. Polishing involves using higher grits of diamonds. 

For floors that are deeply worn or have deep scratches, honing the floors a step deeper will significantly improve the clarity of the shine. Running an extra step of high resin polish grits will give more gloss to the shine. Below, we provide different pricing options for the different levels of desired finishes and budgets. 

Beware of non-experienced carpet cleaners that use Chinese diamond-encrusted hog hair pad systems. We use high-end Italian imported diamond resins, powder polish, and crystallization buffing.

Powder polishing and crystalizing buffing are included in all of our options. 

Option 1: Light Hone & light Polish

$2.25 per square foot.

Recommended for maintenance and etch removal. 

Option 2: Hone & Polish

$3.00 per square foot.

This is the standard recommended polishing option for most travertine floors.  

Option 3: Deep Hone & Polish

$3.75 per square foot

Includes the honing and polishing steps plus an extra honing step to get out the deeper scratches. Honing the floors deeper increases the clarity of the shine. 

Option 4: Deep Hone & High Polish

$4.50 per square foot

This option is the same as option 3, except there is an extra step of high diamond polishing to give the ultimate glossy shine.

Travertine Hole and Crack Repair

Travertine, with its unique formation in mineral springs, often boasts distinctive features such as natural holes—a testament to its natural beauty. Travertine tile is bought in two variations: filled and unfilled. Some travertine is pre-filled at the factory with epoxy, while others are left unfilled, embracing the organic aesthetic of the material.

Over time, it's not uncommon for these natural holes to undergo a natural process where some may loosen or fall out. Don't worry it's part of the stone's journey. Our dedicated team specializes in Travertine Holes and Cracks.

Our repair process involves using a custom epoxy matched to your travertine's unique hues and patterns. 

 

Whether your stone features filled or unfilled holes, our expert repair ensures a seamless restoration, preserving the character of your travertine while eliminating any imperfections. Trust us to breathe new life into your travertine.

How To Tell If Your Travertine Floor Needs Polishing

Travertine floors, while durable, may show signs over time that indicate the need for professional polishing. Polishing must be done every 1 to 5 years, depending on the depth of the honing and the traffic. 

 

Here's a quick guide to help you identify when it's time to polish your travertine:

Dull Appearance: If your travertine floors have lost their natural shine and appear dull. This often occurs due to regular foot traffic and wear.

Scratches and Scuffs: Visible scratches and scuffs can mar the surface of your travertine.

Stains and Discoloration: Stains and discoloration can occur over time, especially in high-traffic areas or places prone to spills. 

 

Uneven Finish: If your travertine floor has a rough or inconsistent finish, it might be time for a professional polish. This can occur due to natural wear, improper cleaning methods, or harsh cleaning agents.

Loss of Luster: Travertine is known for its natural luster. If your floors have lost their inherent glow and appear flat, polishing can bring back that shine you remember.

Difficulty in Cleaning: If cleaning your travertine floors becomes increasingly challenging, with stubborn dirt or grime in crevices, it's a sign that the surface may benefit from a thorough polishing to make future cleaning more manageable.

If you observe one or more of these signs, it's advisable to consult with professionals experienced in travertine floor polishing. They can assess the condition of your floors and recommend the appropriate level of polishing to restore their beauty and shine.

  • How often should I polish my travertine floors?
    The recommended frequency for polishing your travertine floors can vary based on factors such as foot traffic and the type of polish required. For light maintenance polishing, a schedule of every 1 to 5 years is typically sufficient to preserve the shine. If you opt for a deep honing and polishing, a longer interval of 3 to 5 years may be suitable. Monitoring the condition of your floors and considering the level of wear will help determine the ideal polishing timeline. Our experts can provide a personalized assessment to guide you in selecting the optimal frequency for polishing based on your specific circumstances.
  • What are the benefits of choosing a mechanical finish over topical sealers or coatings for travertine floors?
    Opting for a mechanical finish, such as diamond polishing, offers several advantages over traditional topical sealers or coatings for travertine floors: Enhanced Durability: A mechanical finish provides increased durability, making travertine floors more resistant to wear and abrasion compared to surface coatings. Long-lasting Shine: The mechanical process, especially with diamond polishing, creates a lasting shine that doesn't diminish over time, ensuring a consistent and enduring luster. Improved Scratch Resistance: Mechanical finishes enhance the scratch resistance of travertine, minimizing the impact of daily wear and tear. No Coating Build-up: Unlike topical sealers that can build up over time, a mechanical finish does not add layers to the surface, maintaining the natural look of the travertine. Easier Maintenance: Travertine floors with a mechanical finish are easier to clean and maintain, requiring simple cleaning routines without the need for specialized products.
  • Do you move furniture?
    Yes, we move some furniture for an extra charge but most of the time the furniture is moved ahead of time.
  • What area's in Florida do you service?
    We service all of Volusia, Seminole, and Flagler counties.
  • What are ther maintenance routines I should follow after getting my travertine floors polished?
    To keep your newly polished travertine floors in optimal condition, follow these recommended maintenance routines: Use Floor Mats: Place floor mats at entrances to minimize the tracking of dirt and grit onto your polished travertine floors, preventing potential scratches. Select a Neutral Floor Cleaner: Choose a high-quality neutral floor cleaner, such as Zep Neutral Floor Cleaner or an alternative of your preference. Neutral pH cleaners are gentle on the polished surface and help maintain the shine. Microfiber or Steam Mop: Opt for a microfiber mop or a steam mop for regular cleaning. These tools effectively remove dirt and debris without causing damage to the polished surface. Regular Sweeping or Vacuuming: Implement a regular sweeping or vacuuming routine to remove loose dirt and debris. This prevents abrasive particles from scratching the polished travertine. Prompt Spill Cleanup: Attend to spills promptly to prevent staining. Use a soft, absorbent cloth for cleaning, and avoid using acidic or abrasive substances that may harm the polished surface. Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Refrain from using harsh or acidic cleaners, as they can damage the polished finish over time. Stick to neutral pH cleaners to preserve the integrity of the travertine. Periodic Deep Cleaning: Schedule periodic deep cleaning sessions using your chosen neutral floor cleaner to maintain the travertine's appearance and shine.
