Travertine Cleaning & Restoration | Houston TX
Travertine Restoration – Get the look you want
Beyond Clean Tile’s travertine cleaning and restoration process will give you the look you have been craving. During our travertine restoration process we use diamond abrasives to hone or sand the travertine surface which eliminates surface imperfections such as dull spots, scratches, etching and other wear and tear. Beyond Clean Tile is well versed in the types of finishes possible, as well as experienced in the techniques required to achieve them. The most common finishes we provide during our travertine restoration process are a high gloss polish, a honed (soft matte) finish or something in between also known as a satin finish. When travertine is polished to a high gloss finish it gives a very elegant, formal, and upscale feel. Honed travertine on the other hand has a warm, inviting, and natural look and feel. With our travertine restoration process you can customize the look of your travertine floors, countertops, or shower walls.
Deep Cleaning Soiled Travertine
Cleaning travertine can be a real challenge for a homeowner or janitorial company that has never cleaned it before. Travertine surfaces can become dirty and grimy with use, unfilled travertine with its naturally varying surface texture and inherent holes can be particularly challenging once dirt has had time to accumulate in the hollows and low points. Not to worry though, because Beyond Clean Tile can remove deeply imbedded soiling, strip away years of buildup of unsightly topical treatments, remove soap film in showers, get rid of soot on fireplaces, and resolve a host of other travertine cleaning problems with our state-of-the-art truckmount systems and advanced processes. Our equipment heats water up to 220 degrees and pressurizes it so it can flush out contaminates deep within the pours of the stone and grout lines, leaving your travertine and grout clean and sanitized. Our technicians pay extra attention to detail so your home feels and smells like new. When we are done with our travertine deep cleaning you will understand why we have the best reviews in Montgomery County!
Filling Holes in Travertine
Travertine in its original state has naturally occurring holes throughout. Part of travertine’s unique appeal is that it is available in two distinct forms — filled and unfilled. In “filled” travertine, a color-matched material is used at the factory to fill the holes, giving the stone a smooth finish. In “unfilled” travertine the natural holes remain exposed for a rustic, earthy finish. Both filled and unfilled travertine are beautiful in their own right, and both offer their own particular look and feel. If you have unfilled travertine, or the holes in your filled travertine have become exposed, and you want the holes to be filled, we can perform this service for you.
Travertine Grinding / Lippage Removal
Whether you want a floor that is flush with its grout lines for easier cleaning or need to remedy uneven tiles that can be trip hazards and unattractive, Beyond Clean Tile can take care of that for you. Using state-of-the art diamond grinding technology, we can remove excess stone to create a flat, level surface. Once the uneven tiles are leveled (this is called lippage removal), the travertine is honed and polished to your desired finish.
Some natural stone types are more porous than others, and the more porous a natural stone is, the more susceptible it is to staining. Your travertine will be easier to keep clean with periodic professional deep cleaning services, using non-acidic, highly-effective cleaning solutions. Once your travertine is cleaned and restored, we may recommend you have us seal it to enhance its stain resistance. We say, “may” because not all stone needs to be sealed. Highly polished stone may not even take an impregnating sealer. But, if sealing is recommended, know that sealing represents an inexpensive, preventative measure against stain damage, because it buys you time to wipe up spills before they become stains.
Travertine Color Enhancing
Travertine is characterized by its neutral earth tone colors. For certain types of travertine, our skilled technicians can apply an enhancing sealer to intensify the color and enrich its natural beauty.
