Elite Stone and Tile Care offers travertine floor and surface restoration, protection, and maintenance services for residential and commercial properties throughout the Orlando and Daytona area.
Deep Cleaning Travertine
Elite Stone and Tile Care 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 travertine cleaning problems, leaving your stone as pristine as the day it was installed.
Travertine Stain Removal
Elite Stone And Tile Care can remove travertine stains and travertine discolorations. Whether you are seeking guidance on how to do this yourself (refer to our Stain Management app) or want us to treat stains on your travertine, the good news is that most common stains can be removed and the finish of your stone restored to new again.
Travertine comes in a honed (matte finish) and a polished finish. These finishes need to be cared for and will from time to time need honing to remove scratches and etching or it will need to be re-polished and sealed. Is your floor too dull or too shiny? Call Elite Stone and Tile Care and specify the finish you need. If you have a new floor with some tiles that look more glossy than others – let us even out the finish for you. Whether you have or are seeking to acquire a gloss, or matte finish, we can deliver a beautifully restored travertine finish.
Does your travertine floor have dull areas associated with wear patterns, scratches, etches, or spots? We can hone your travertine surfaces to eliminate these imperfections, resulting in a new travertine surface free of damage. With our travertine honing services, our expert technicians can achieve a honed or soft matte finish that is warm, inviting, and velvety smooth.
Travertine Grinding (Lippage Removal)
Travertine Holes Filled
Travertine comes in what is known as filled and unfilled. Travertine naturally has holes that run throughout the stone. With unfilled travertine, the holes remain exposed for a rustic, earthy finish. With filled travertine, the holes are filled in, giving the stone a smooth finish.
Elite Stone And Tile Care can fill holes in travertine (a process called travertine floating) to give unfilled travertine a smooth appearance or to repair filled travertine with holes that have become exposed. We use tinted filler and then blend the repair site with the surrounding area, honing or polishing it to match the surrounding finish.
Sealing & Protecting
Color Enhancing Sealer
Travertine is characterized by its neutral earth-tone colors. For certain types of travertine, our Elite Stone and Tile Care skilled technicians can apply an enhancing sealer to intensify the color and enrich its natural beauty.
Does Travertine Need Maintenance?
The short answer is yes, travertine does require maintenance. Regular cleaning with a stone safe cleaner is a great for simple day-to-day maintenance, but over time, depending on traffic and usage, your floors may start to become dull, become scratched or show obvious traffic patterns.
