When refinishing an aged travertine floor, our team commonly notices similar flaws that need to be addressed. Many of these flaws come directly from age, such as damaged grout, a worn down finish, and small “holes” or dents in the floor that create the illusion of craters in the tile. Occasionally, we see more directly caused instances of damage, such as large cracks, scratches, or holes in the floor caused by heavy furniture being moved through the house. If you find yourself in this situation, don’t worry! Our team has the experience and knowledge to bring your favorite Travertine Floor back to life. With enough time and foot traffic, any floor will become dull, scratched, and dirty.
These are the 4 precise steps our team follows to restore a Travertine floor:
Our team values protecting your home throughout the renovation process above all else. The preparation process includes protecting all rooms, walls, and furniture around the working area with plastic secured by painters tape. During this stage, any furniture on your floor will be moved as well by our crew if included within your contract.
Once the work area is fully protected, our crew will begin honing the area with our top of the line floor machines and solution. Once the Honing process is complete, the small “holes” or dents discussed in the opening paragraph of this article will be further exposed in the travertine. To fill these holes, our team uses a high level of care and attention to detail, grouting every dent in your floor with a squeegee to ensure a smooth application and finish. We then allow the grout to cure overnight and hone the floor again with state of the art high grit diamond pads and water to achieve a seamless, level surface. This is one of the most important steps in the process for getting rid of the physical damage in your floor itself, while the natural shine will be restored in the next step.
If you choose to upgrade to our seamless floor service, our team will also fully remove and replace the epoxy grouting between your tiles during this part of the process. Once the grouting is cured, we will then hone the grouting and floor down to a smooth and even level, leaving you with a beautiful seamless finish.
The travertine is then polished using our special three step D.I.P. process, which involves honing and polishing your floor. At the end of the polishing process, your travertine floor is going to be shining and almost back to its original form. The floor is now ready for a fresh seal to close out the process.
The final step of the process is adding our fresh, signature seal to your floor. This seal will add an extra layer of protection and the final shine on your Travertine surface, restoring it back to the way it was as new.
