Travertine Cleaning & Grout Sealing Process
Laguna’s Clean Trust Technicians perform the following three steps in our travertine tile can grout cleaning and sealing process.
1. Clean and Polish Travertine Floor
Our certified technicians use specially formulated powders and state-of-the-art equipment to polish the shine back into your travertine flooring and grout by removing microscopic scratches and marks.
Our special honing process removes deeper scratches that are visible to the naked eye. In this process, diamonds grind the stone to restore it to its original condition and a high gloss is visible.
In order to maintain the beauty of your newly polished travertine floors, our technicians can apply a special seal that will shield your travertine floor and grout from scrapes and dirt.
Natural Stone Refinishing
Our natural stone refinishing method, which is very similar to our cleaning and honing process, involves a thorough process which removes visible scratches and dirt and grime from your travertine floors and counter-tops. This method is safe to use to restore your travertine, marble, slate, granite, and terrazzo floors.
Travertine is very similar to a sponge in that it is a like a stack of bubbles. The density of the stone depends on how much stone versus the amount of air pockets. Our custom abrasive process is able to smooth the surface of the stone which reduces surface area.
Our system is able to finish the stone without opening up air pockets underneath the surface. If you look at the surface of the travertine tile under a microscope it would look like a crystalline forest. All of these little trees are like straws that can provide millions of tiny pathways into the stone. We are actually sealing off the stone during the finishing process by reducing the surface area.
Less surface area means less pores. Our custom abrasive process starts this sealing process by closing off the pathways liquids have to get into the stone. As finishing progresses, the stone becomes more reflective. As a stone becomes more reflective it is being closed off by the reduction of surface area.
