Testimonials

I noticed that some of the tiles in my bathroom walls were loose and the grout was coming off. I am a very busy so kept on postponing calling someone to fix it. One day I got home and the loose tiles were lying broken on the floor. Can you imagine my frustration? I rang my brother in panic and he gave me Tile Cleaners' contact details. I rang them straight away. The guys told me I needed a tiler and professional regrouting work done so I thought it would take ages to fix my problem. However they organized the work very well. I had my tiles fixed on Friday night the same week and the entire bathroom regrouted on Saturday. Thank you some much for your quick help; it was such a relief.

Travertine tile 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 and other speleothems. It is frequently used in Italy and elsewhere as a building material.

The resulting stone is a smooth and very hard substance further characterized by its porous surface. These pores are the result of gases escaping as the travertine is formed.

By the time it is quarried, travertine is naturally beautiful - a smooth, dense stone that exhibits a notable creamy color that evokes a certain old-world refinement.

Extensive deposits exist at Tivoli, Italy, near Rome. In fact, travertine derives its name from this town. Tivoli was known as Tibur in ancient Roman times. The ancient name for the stone was lapis tiburtinus meaning tibur stone, which has been corrupted to travertine.

Different cleaning and maintenance instructions and methods should be used on Travertine depending on its finish and wether it's sealed or left in its natural state. In General, Travertine tiles should be cleaned and maintained with non acidic products, and it is recommended to get them professionally cleaned every few years to help make them last longer and bring up the fresh look after the tiles start to look tired daily use.

Travertine can be left in its natural state, with no polishing. Etched by acids. Porous with many visible holes, often filled with epoxy. Polishing unfilled travertine can be tricky. Polishing powders tend to accumulate in the holes and can make clean-up difficult. Because it is soft and has epoxy-filled holes, it should never be cleaned at pressures above 800 PSI and then only if the grout is in good condition.

Sealants are layer forming treatments that produce a shiny (or natural) protective film on the surface. This sealer must be stripped and re applied from time to time. Different sealants are recommended for indoors than outdoors, and sealants cant vary in type, lifetime (durability), stain protective properties, and slipp resisting properties.

Travertine, like other calcareous stones, is referred to as acid sensitive. Calcareous stones are readily dissolved in acid, therefore acidic products should not be used on Travertine tiles.

Stripping Travertine Tiles

As Travertine tiles can be sealed, this sealer may need to be removed and re-applied after it starts to wear off, this usually depends on type of sealer used, method used to apply it and the amount of traffic or use. This process is called stripping and sealing, and is usually required every 2-10 years depending on type of sealer, area used (indoor or outdoor), and amount of traffic or use.

Travertine is susceptible to damage from some acidic substances. substances which, unfortunately, are often found in the very place we like to use travertine tiling - the kitchen. Substances such as carbonated drinks, fruit juices, vinegar and sauces can damage the surface of the tile over time, so in order to protect your tiles from these things you must make sure your Travertine tiles are sealed and always clean up spills straight away.
