travertine cleaning and restorationOrlando Traverine Restoration specializes in natural stone tile cleaning including; Limestone, Marble and Travertine. Proudly serving Greater Orlando and surrounding areas. Let us show you how we can restore you stone floors and return them to their original beauty. Natural stones such as limestone and travertine are naturally porous due to the process in which they are formed. This means, without proper sealing, the tile will easily collect dirt, debris and grime on the surface and natural pits.


Cleaning Travertine

Our industry specific machines make the process of cleaning travertine stone floors much more effective than what most home and business owners are able to achieve on their own. Our technique and equipment can be used on all natural stone surfaces and types. They are restored and cleaned in the same process implementing our enclosed high pressure unit in conjunction with our rotary slow rpm machine. Our technicians clean the entire tile surface and the adjoining grout lines to ensure a completely clean and revitalized appearance.

Maintenance of Travertine

The most common travertine stone used within homes and commercial applications are honed (satin smooth appearance and little light reflection) and polished (high gloss appearance which reflects light and accentuates the color and markings within the stone.) Though beautiful to look at, these flooring options easily show traffic wear and debris. Normal cleaning and mopping will not completely remove the buildup of dirt and will require more frequent professional intervention to restore it’s like new appearance. Stone with lighter coloring will reflect stains easier than dark stone. Limestone is available in a wide variety of colors, though mostly in the palate of beiges and creams, often referred to as Applestone, and have a much higher opportunity to show staining, dirt and etching.

Sealing Travertine

We often are asked by our clients if it is possible to remove stains and etching from their natural stone surfaces. In most cases, with the use of our cleaning and honing system, we can remove most stains and etch marks found within the stone, depending on the depth of the stain’s penetration into the stone. Another common call we receive is to remove scratches made on the stone made from high foot traffic, dog nails, children’s toys and furniture. Depending on the depth of the scratch, most can be repaired and in most cases, undetectable. We always recommend a high quality penetrating sealer to protect the stone tile surfaces from scratching and staining. This is most important in kitchens and bathrooms where most staining occurs from spills. With a proper sealant applied, most spills will bead on the surface of the stone, allowing you time to clean it up and avoid staining and costly restoration.
