Travertine Renovation

Click here for more info on our Clean & Sanitise Package

Travertine is a terrestrial sedimentary rock, formed either by the precipitation of carbonate minerals from solution in ground and surface waters or geothermal hot-springs. It looks beautiful when it’s well looked after, but it does require occasional professional maintenance.

If you are seeking help cleaning, restoring or just polishing a travertine floor, our specialist floor restoration team in Maidstone have both the experience and the cutting edge equipment needed to provide the highest quality results. First, TileMaster staff remove dirt and debris, before buffing out surface marks and getting rid of surface scratches. Protective sealant is then applied, which restores the travertine to a fantastic like-new shine, in turn making the tiles and grout easier to keep cleaner, for longer.

How to tell your travertine needs cleaning or restoration

Weekly sweeping and dusting of the floor is always recommended, supported by semi-regular professional cleaning and polishing to extend the floor’s lifespan for as long as possible.

The frequency with which you should professionally clean, polish and seal your travertine floor is decided based on a number of different factors, not least the amount of footfall the floor receives. Typically business premises require professional cleaning more frequently than domestic dwellings.

When deciding to book a professional restoration of your travertine you should look our for these common issues. Your local TileMaster professional can help identify and resolve the following common travertine problems:

  • Dull and lifeless travertine flooring
  • Holes and pits in the surface that require filling
  • Cracks in the surface
  • Uneven floor with sharp edges
  • Worn, tired grouting
  • Debris from builders or construction work
  • Mopping has no effect
  • Scratches and dirt embedded in the surface
  • Does your travertine floor have dull spots?
  • Are you looking to bring back that fresh, just laid finish?

Every job is different, due to furniture, size of area and treatments required but during the free survey & demo we will give you an estimate of time. For example, we recently completed a deep clean and sealed a marble floor of 40sqm in 1.5 days

Every job is different but during the free survey we measure up, do a free demonstration clean to show the results we can achieve, and from this we send over a full proposal for you to browse at your own leisure. We do not give prices on the day or put you under any pressure for an answer there and then

Yes, the floor is fine to use once we leave on the first day. We try to leave protection on the floor in the main traffic way or around the kitchen island, in front of the sink or oven. We normally suggest just not to cook anything like spag bol or curry, however, because the sauce might end up splattering on the floor

No problem! Using specialist filler and a traditional wax method we can colour match fillers on site to help make them look like a natural feature of your tile

Holes in travertine are perfectly natural and are caused by hot springs or gasses passing through the rock. The pits and air pockets can be filled in the factory process, but these can pop out and come away from foot traffic when the tiles are first laid. Also, some travertine is sold unfilled and during the fitting the tiler fixer will float the grout over the whole tile and fill up the holes and pits with grout. This is perfectly fine, however the grout can become stained and discoloured if it isn’t sealed and maintained correctly

Yes, we can use aggressive diamond tooling to remove the lips or sharp edges. Once the floor is flat we can smooth out the floor and bring back the wonderful polished finish

All products used are within the manufacturer’s guidelines, and where applicable your flooring manufacture own brand products can be used.

Scratches, scuff marks and damage on the floor can be removed if they are surface-level and in the dressing. Deeper scratches on the surface may require a more intensive process to use diamond pads to repair the scratch.

We are happy to give a ballpark figure from pictures and room sizes, as this can help customer budgeting on renovation projects if they are unsure whether to restore or replace, but ultimately we would need to carry out a full survey and demo before any work can take place.

Yes, we are always happy to call out and offer a free demo clean. Not only does this give you, the customer, a good indication of the results we can achieve, it also allows us to quote for the floor correctly, as we know the process required to achieve those results.

    We had the pleasure of Guy dealing with a stained fireplace, which he has cleaned and sealed. We found the service received very efficient and a Guy was a pleasure to deal with. Would highly recommend.

  2. Debbie Keeler

    Absolutely delighted with the clean and sealing of our marble floor – the floor looks amazing. Guy and his team did a great job and were a pleasure to deal with. We can highly recommend so pleased!

  3. Diane Kemp

    Hello Guy
    I have a shower cubicle and my cleaner has thrown viakal or something acidic over some of the travertine (or are they limestone?) tiles.

    About 6-8 large tiles are affected by staining.

    Is that something you can rectify for me? I can send photos if that would help and then perhaps you could quote me.

  4. Sue Keal

    Guy came and cleaned our terracotta kitchen floor which was heavily stained and he did a wonderful job and was very professional.Work was carried out without any fuss or problems. We are so pleased with the result and would definitely recommend.

After years of living with a very dull, cracked and altogether disappointing marble tiled kitchen floor I turned to TileMaster for help. I first... purchased the tile repair resin and the result was great, it was easy to apply and very forgiving with a "have a go" amateur. Riding high with confidence and now with a first success under my belt I bit the bullet and purchased a Conan HD rotary machine with a set of hybrid pads and sealer to polish the floor; maybe excessive to some but given £100's already spend on paying others and ending with miserable results I wanted to try for myself. I was told the result would not be as good as new and when I first saw the hybrid pads I didn't think I would have much of a floor left but I followed the online instructions and got down to some serious polishing. The TileMaster team were right, the result was not as good as new, it was better! It's an incredible finish, like glass, very few scratches remain, I cannot believe it. After trying for years to get such as finish I can only say thank you for your clear advice and great products. Thank you so much. more

I found TileMaster via a Google search. I had uncovered an old Victorian tiled kitchen floor prior to installing a new kitchen and I wanted to... restore/conserve it. I contacted Lee McCarthy at TileMaster to ask about types of cleaners and brushes. Lee gave great advice freely and I opted for two types of tile stripper to try; Tile & Stone Stripper which is solvent based and the TM Stripper which is water based. These are both great products, although I preferred the water-based stripper. I found it easier to use as it gave me longer to work into the tile surface while using the 4″ Winnex HD Hand Brush attached to my angle grinder. Yet again, I received great advice from Lee when it came to choosing a sealer and I used Colour Enhancing Sealer – Solvent Based. The sealer is excellent and has done a great job. My only word of caution is to ensure that the tiles are fully dry before using. I had a some tiles had efflorescence on them after I failed to dry them completely before applying the sealer. All in all, very good products and an excellent customer support service. Thank you Leeread more

I was recommended to TileMaster through a third party and got in touch with them. I found them to be ultra professional in every way. They attended... the property in order to give me a quote on the project within 24 hours and delivered the quote to me the same day. They are all genuinely very easy to deal with, polite and are a friendly team of people to undertake your project for you. Their communication was excellent and the quality of their workmanship was of an exceptionally high standard. I am very happy to give them a high recommendation and will use them on any future projects without more
