This beautiful Travertine Tiled floor was installed in a Kitchen in Portsmouth; it was in need of a little TLC so the house owner called in Tile Doctor to give it a make over.
Cleaning Travertine Kitchen Tiles
Before starting the cleaning we applied clear silicone in order to protect the Kitchen units, otherwise water can soak into the plinths and kicker boards, and this was left to cure while we worked on other parts of the kitchen. There was a paint splatter on one area which we managed to remove using Tile Doctor Remove and Go which was left to dwell for an hour before being agitated with a scrubbing brush, the dirty solution was removed using a wet vacuum and we moved onto burnishing the whole tiled floor.
Sealing Travertine Tiled Floor
We left the floor to dry overnight and came back the next day to seal the floor. The floor must be dry before sealing so we test first using a damp meter in several locations to be sure. Once we were happy the floor was dry we proceeded to seal the Travertine tiles using two coats of Tile Doctor Colour Grow which really enhances the colours in natural stone as well providing excellent stain protection. The tile must be dry before applying the second coat so we use an industrial air mover to speed up the drying process.
