Sydney Metro Travertine CleaningWhat is Travertine?

Travertine (lapis tiburtinus, meaning tibur stone) derives it's name from the Ancient Roman town of Tibur and is a form of limestone which forms due to precipitation of carbonate minerals around hot springs and limestone caves. Travertine is a sedimentary rock with a fibrous appearance existing in white, tan and cream varieties.

 

 

 

Where is Travertine Stone used?

Travertine Stone has for many centuries been used in building structures. The Colosseum in Rome is the largest building structure constructed mainly from Travertine Stone. Travertine Stone is commonly used around patios and garden pathways including modern architecture for wall claddings, facades and floorings. Common Travertine finishes are

dotHoned

dotTumbled

dotBrushed

dotFilled

dotPolished

 

A honed surface is sanded creating a matte finish. Tumbled surfaces are created when Travertine is tumbled with gravel and sand to create a rough and aged appearance. Brushed finishes are created using a wire brush - creating a worn look. Filled finishes are created when the pitted holes and troughs are filled with coloured resins creating a solid surface. Polished finishes are created when the surface is sanded to bring out a shiny appearance.

 

Is Travertine Stone easy to clean?

Travertine Stone contains pitted holes and troughs on the stone's surface. The holes and troughs along with Travertine's softness creates a flooring which is hard to maintain and clean. Professional Travertine stone cleaning and sealing is usually required to restore the natural appearance of Travertine after long periods of time.

 

Tips and advice on how to clean Travertine Stone Tiles?

Cleaning Travertine stone can take more than just a mop and bucket. Results will usually depend on the condition and age of the Travertine stone including whether or not the Travertine stone has been sealed. If Travertine stone is relatively new then a few simple cleaning techniques can restore the condition of Travertine.

 

Sweep tiles daily

This will prevent dirt and mud to build up between the grout.

 

Ventilation

Keep areas well ventilated to prevent mildew from forming on the Travertine tile and grout surface.

 

Avoid the use of acid cleaning products which can etch the Travertine stone surface.

 

Travertine Stripping and Sealing

This will be required depending on the level of traffic and condition of the Travertine stone. If you are not sure whether your Travertine stone requires stripping and sealing please contact us for advice.

 

If the above tips don't achieve the results you desire then professional Travertine tile cleaning equipment and products will need to be used.
