Testimonials

My mother's tiles were old and ugly, as she has been living in the same house her entire life without ever really taking care of her tiles. I called Tile Cleaners to get advice on what to do with them. They came to her house the next day to have a look at my mum's tiles. I am very satisfied with how patient and highly professional you were with my mother. I am sorry I couldn't be there when you arrived, and I am really impressed by how you managed to explain everything to my mom and help her out. Thank you for doing a great job.

Tile Cleaners Sydney® prides itself on providing Australia's best travertine stripping and sealing service. Our years of experience in the field of tile protection results in your travertine looking its absolute best, protected against staining and deterioration for the longest possible time.

Travertine tiles are quite porous and should be sealed to preserve their beauty and protect against staining and deterioration caused by everyday wear. Sealed or not sealed, we can help; our team of tile care professionals will achieve the best results for your travertine tiles.

When your travertine tiles begin to appear dull and start to stain easily, that means your previous sealer is wearing off and your tiles are in danger of permanent damage. Tile Cleaners Sydney® strip/remove all necessary worn sealer from your travertine tiles, restoring their fresh look using our advanced, proven machinery; we then seal your travertine tiles with one of our top quality water based products.

All porous tiles should be sealed. Sealing keeps most stains suspended at the surface of your travertine, creating a barrier that provides protection against chemical attack, deterioration and contamination. Sealing is the first important step towards protecting your natural travertine against stains.

What is Travertine?

Travertine flooring is a very stylish material that is both functional and aesthetically attractive while bringing a very appealing, old-world character to any home or business. Travertine pavers are especially attractive around the swimming pool and surrounds with no two tiles looking the same. Travertine will often appear fibrous or concentric and can come in a white, tan or a cream like colour.

Travertine is formed in mineral springs, especially around hot springs, underground rivers and in limestone caves. Travertine is different to limestone (sedimentary) and marble (metamorphic) with the main characteristic of travertine being the holes within the stone created as a result of gases escaping as the travertine is formed. The resulting stone is a smooth and very hard substance further characterised by its porous surface.

Stripping Travertine Tiles

When your travertine tiles begin to appear dull and start to stain easily, that usually means your previous sealer is wearing off and your travertine tiles are in danger of permanent damage. Tile Cleaners Sydney® strip/remove all necessary old sealer from your travertine tiles, restoring their natural fresh look using our state of the art cleaning machinery.

As travertine tiles can be sealed, previous sealer may need to be removed and re-applied after it starts to wear, this usually depends on the type of sealer used, method used during application and the amount of traffic or use. This process is called stripping and sealing, and is usually required every 2-10 years.

No matter where your travertine tiles are, Tile Cleaners Sydney® will strip, clean and professionally reseal them for you. In your kitchen, shower, bathroom, around the swimming pool, your backyard, outdoors or any hard to reach indoor areas.

Does your service include stripping solvent sealers?

Tile Cleaners Sydney® standard service does not include stripping solvent coatings and we do not recommend stripping solvent sealers unless it is absolutely necessary. When no other option is available this service is provided, however due to the high cost of products and time required only at an additional cost.

Cleaning Travertine Tiles

Tile Cleaners Sydney® are your specialist service provider for all travertine tile & grout cleaning. If you need advice on how to clean your old or brand new travertine surfaces and tile grout and how best to reseal your travertine so it stays looking new, or need a professional to do it for you then you have come to the right place.

Different cleaning and maintenance methods should be used on travertine depending on its finish and whether 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 have travertine professionally cleaned every few years to maintain their appearance and restore the fresh look once the tiles start to appear tired following regular daily use.

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.

Sealing Travertine Tiles

Two main sealing options exist for travertine tiles

  • Deep Penetrating Impregnating Sealer
  • (Transparent Finish/Colour Enhancing Finish)

  • Topical Sealer
  • (Gloss/Satin/Matte Finish)

deepshield moisture travertine

Tile Cleaners Sydney® recommend penetrating sealers for travertine whenever possible. Penetrating sealers are designed to maintain the natural look and feel of your travertine. Deep penetrating impregnating sealers use nano-technology to protect your travertine and grout from water and oil based stains by chemically reacting with the surface pores to form a long lasting breathable protective barrier.

An impregnating sealer protects your travertine surface and grout from absorbing stains and results in cleaning and maintenance becoming much easier. Australia's Deepshield® range of impregnating water based sealers offer long term benefits, protecting for up to 15 years depending on the product type.

An impregnating transparent sealer enters the pores of your stone and once cured will not change the look of the tile or stone. A penetrating colour enhancing sealer is designed to enhance and enrich the look of travertine tiles. Penetrating sealers however will not result in a shine or a gloss finish as they do not leave a surface coating. If you would like a shine on your travertine you will need to to use a topical sealer.

deepshield Travertine

Tile Cleaners Sydney® are experts at applying all types of sealer and will ensure your travertine looks its absolute best. Tile Cleaners Sydney® experienced technicians can apply a topical sealer when especially required to create a high gloss, satin sheen or matte finish to your surfaces. Topical sealer is also helpful in situations where the old solvent based sealer can not be completely removed or when required to hide certain types of damage. Topical sealer's have a life expectancy of 3-5 years.

You can easily test how porous your travertine is by applying a small amount of water to the surface and watching how it is absorbed. You can then see how any type of water based stain can be absorbed by the travertine tile surface and grout.

Types of sealers used on travertine tiles

Water based sealer's and solvent-based sealer's can both be used on travertine, however unless absolutely required for a specific reason, we always recommend applying a water based sealer that doesn't produce harmful fumes during application and removal. Water based sealers are easier to apply and remove and also require less drying time. One of the most popular product ranges available is Australian made Deepshield™ quality impregnating water based sealer's that prolong the life of your surfaces by taking full advantage of recent advancements in nano technology, providing unmatched long-term stain resistance and reliability.

It is important to ensure the correct water based sealer is applied to your travertine tile which will also depend on whether they are indoors or outdoors as most sealer's will not last long outside due to being designed for internal use. If your travertine is outdoors, it is important to use a water based sealer that is specifically designed for outdoor travertine.

There are two types of impregnating clear sealer, water based sealer & solvent based. In the past solvent based sealers were more widely used as they used to absorb deeper into the travertine and grout and would also last longer. Today however, thanks to new technological advancements, it is recommended only to use water based sealers, that last much longer and cause less potential damage to health and property.

Solvent based products are more difficult to apply and can create major problems when applied incorrectly as they are very hard to remove. Tile Cleaners Sydney® recommend our clients apply a long lasting water based sealer to their travertine tiles and grout. Topical sealer's (glossy plastic coating over the top of the travertine) are still used on travertine, but these older style sealers can trap moisture in the stone and make the surface slippery when wet. When a topical sealer wears in higher traffic areas, the entire surface usually needs to be stripped and re-sealed.

It is very important to ensure that tiles achieve their cleanest possible condition prior to being sealed. This will protect the appearance of the tile, and importantly ensure that there won't be any dirt, stains or other debris caught under the layer of sealant.

To provide the best possible protection from oil and water-based stains; to maintain the look and slip resistance of your travertine and to prevent damaging moisture from being trapped within the stone, it is recommended to seal your travertine with a high quality, invisible, fully breathable impregnating sealer.
