Specialized hand detail tools and brushes are used for edges, corners, and hard to reach areas.
Travertine Sealing Las Vegas
Once your travertine floor is installed it needs to be sealed with an “impregnator” type sealer. Impregnator sealers are designed to penetrate below the surface of the travertine and deposit solid particles in the pores of the stone or to coat the minerals below the surface of the travertine. Water, oil, and soil are restricted from entering the natural stone. Always allow at least 72 hours after installation before sealing. Travertine sealing needs to be re-applied for a number of reasons. Certain types of spills can actually damage or remove the protection that the travetine sealer offers. New natural stone may not have had a proper sealer applied when installed by the stone fabricator or installer. This protection level can also be rendered in-effictive by using improper cleaning agents, household cleaners, dishwashing liquids, as well as traffic or usage.
“Why should I seal my travertine?”
Protected stone or tile and grout will be easier to clean, resisit staining, and provide a safer healthier environment. Considersing the investment, why wouldn’t you provide the travertinesurface with the maximum protection travertine sealer possible?
