We begin the travertine sealing process by checking for all kinds of stains, including:
We take time to identify each stain before deciding on how to remove them. We don’t use acidic solutions in the stain removal process to preserve your travertine surfaces.
We only seal travertine tile when it is 100% free of dirt or residue. We achieve this by using neutral or alkaline cleansers to wash the area. After washing, we’ll rinse with lots of water to ensure there’s no debris or leftover soap on the surface. Leaving some residue on the surface will counter the actions of the sealer.
Travertine is a naturally porous stone, so concrete paver sealers just won’t do. At Elite Power Washing, we use water-based travertine sealers because they are environmentally friendly. They are also best to use around wet areas such as pool decks. With the year round humidity levels around palm coast, water-based sealers are always the better bet.
Applying the sealer takes experience, and our technicians have the process down to a science. We apply the sealer in a thin, even layer and let it soak into the stone to maintain travertine’s natural microporous property, preventing water from getting trapped in the stone.
Keep in mind that all sealers are not the same. We have a wide selection of travertine sealers to choose from, including:
We will discuss your options and guide you toward the right choice for your property.
