Your Travertine Tile Care Guide

Trav_Care_Guide

In preparation for the upcoming holiday season, we wanted to take a moment to provide you our Travertine Tile Care Guide. Follow these simple tips to help keep your beautiful tile floors clean throughout the fall and into the holidays.

Quick Tips:

  • Dust Mop frequently.  Dust and grit are the number one reason a floor begins to look dirty.
  • Damp Mop routinely with less soap and clean water.  (Normally 1-2 ounces of cleaner per gallon of water)
  • Spot Clean with a marble cleaner for immediate spills.

Did you know?

  • Vinegar and other acid cleaners damage the surface of the stone.
  • Topical sealers (wax, mop n glow, floor shine products) last 1-6 months and must be stripped to restore floors.
  • Impregnating sealers are great at repelling oil and water.  But they are only oil and water resistant.  Application effects performance.
  • Sealers will not prevent scratches, acid burns (etching), rusting.  Sealers will keep these effects at the surface of the stone, but cannot prevent.

Preventative Tips:

  • Place walk off mats at all entrances.  Routinely clean mats to ensure they are effective.
  • Use protective pads on moving furniture.  Furniture that moves frequently tends to wear scratches and holes into stone quickly.
  • Ensure area rugs and mats can breathe.  Folding a rug over for a couple hours a month can prevent rug stains later.
  • Do not set acidic drinks (wine, coke, juices) on Travertine surfaces.
