Lifeless Travertine?

Having Issues With Your Travertine? Don’t despair!

If the sight of your travertine floors or shower walls is giving you the blues, professional restoration services can brighten your day. Travertine can be cleaned, repaired and restored to like new, for much less than the cost of replacement.


If all the mopping in the world won’t clean your travertine floors or you scrub and scrub the shower and unsightly soap film won’t go away, it’s time for a professional cleaning. With deep cleaning processes, years of imbedded dirt, grime and film can be removed. You will be amazed how clean your travertine will look and feel.

Travertine Repairs

Travertine has pitted holes and troughs by nature. Floor tiles generally come with these holes filled, but sometimes the fillers pop out leaving the holes exposed that become dirt collectors. As a professional stone restoration service, we can fill these holes, leaving your floors with a smoother, cleaner finish. Cracks or chips? We can make most of them virtually invisible.

Travertine Honing & Polishing

Have your dull and lifeless travertine floors got you down? It could be due to etching and scratches. A professional honing and polishing will uncover the beauty of your stone that is lying there just beneath the damaged surface and have you smiling again in no time. The finish on your travertine can be changed from a glossy shine to a satin and matte finish, or vice versa.

Sealing and Color Enhancing Travertine

Sealing fills the pores of your travertine and the fillers to inhibit spills from penetrating and causing stains. But not all travertine needs sealing. Let us take a look. For certain types of travertine, we can apply an enhancing sealer to intensify the color and enrich its natural beauty.
