Travertine, the Stone
Travertine is a form of limestone deposited by mineral springs, especially hot
springs. Travertine often has a fibrous or concentric appearance and exists in white, tan, and cream-colored varieties. It is formed by a process of rapid precipitation of calcium carbonate, often at the mouth of a hot spring or in a limestone cave. In the latter, it can form stalactites, stalagmites
Travertine floor tile cleaning, restoration, sealing and maintenance
Considered by many to be one of the most popular stones, Travertine greatly enhances the look of hotel and commercial receptions areas, exquisite bathrooms and elegant floors.

Travertine is porus. If it has not been installed or sealed properly it will quickly discolour and be very hard to maintain. However, Cotswold Stone Floor Cleaners use specific processes to return your natural Travertine stone to its former glory. We can polish naturally Travertine from Honed to polished and polished back to honed, removing limescale and etching marks. It is always recommended to seal the floor tiles to give you the first line of defence against soils & spills.
