Total Finish Floors Resolves Travertine Problems
Instead of opting to replace your travertine altogether, Total Finish Floors can help you restore it back to its original condition—or even better! We’ll buff out any scratches or etches, fix cracks and chips, and leave your floors looking brand new.
The holes in travertine are caused by gas bubbles.
Travertine has holes that run throughout, which is why it comes in two types: “unfilled” and “filled.” With unfilled travertine, the holes remain exposed for a more natural look. Filled travertine means that the holes are filled in, giving the stone a smooth texture.
At Total Finish Floors, we can use a process called “travertine floating” to cover holes in travertine and give it a smooth appearance. If your already-filled travertine has exposed holes, we can repair that too. We start by using tinted filler then work on making the site match its surroundings via honing and polishing.
Travertine Refinishing and Sealing
Travertine is available in a honed (matte finish) and polished finish, both of which require care and occasional maintenance such as honing to remove scratches and etching or re-polishing and sealing. Total Finish Floors offers services to keep your travertine pristine.
We can clean, polish, and seal your travertine to give it a custom finish. We provide expert interior and exterior travertine services for all kinds of properties–from homes, apartments, condos, offices, warehouses, retail stores restaurants hotel lobbies and more.
We offer several services to take care of your travertine, including cleaning and sealing it or doing a complete repair and restoration.
Travertine Grinding, Honing, and Polishing
The three main processes we use to create the desired look for your travertine are grinding, honing, and polishing. This can include evening out uneven tiles, removing wear patterns or scratches, and giving it a smooth or glossy finish.
Deep Cleaning Travertine
We specialize in travertine cleaning and use only the best, non-acidic solutions to remove deeply embedded soiling, strip away years of topical treatments, remove soap film in showers, and get rid of soot on fireplaces – you name it.
Travertine is a porous material, so after our professionals have restored your floors, showers, tubs, and walls made of travertine, we recommend having us seal it to protect against staining.
Is your travertine flooring or backsplash looking a little dull? Don’t worry – the original finish can likely be restored! Here at our company, we have extensive experience with poulticing stains and discoloration. In most cases, we are able to fully remove the blemish and restore your tile’s natural beauty.
Travertine Repairs and Tile Replacement
Total Finish Floors offers expert travertine repair services to cover up cracks and chips before you replace the entire structure. We can blend the repair site with its surroundings, as well as hone and polish it to match the finish on your other travertine surfaces. This way, no one will be able to tell that there was ever any damage at all!
Total Finish Floors craftsman can, in many cases, remove broken tiles without damaging neighboring tiles. They can then reinstall the new tile and level it with the surrounding area. Lastly, they will match the finish as closely as possible to the original.
Color Enhancing Travertine
For select types of travertine, our trained professionals can apply a color-intensifying sealer to deepen the hue and bring out its original beauty.
Although regular cleaning and janitorial services are helpful for general upkeep, over time they actually leave floors with grimy grout lines, shiny scratches, and increasingly visible traffic patterns.
If you don’t take care of your floors, they will become damaged and increasingly unpleasant to look at until you finally have to get them professionally restored. With our regularly scheduled maintenance program, however, your floors can stay looking great all the time without ever needing restoration.
