Tile and Grout Cleaning and Sealing

When you install stone surfaces in your kitchen, wash room or any other part of the house, you must remember that although these are high on good looks, these require a lot of maintenance, too. Travertine is one such sedimentary stone that has a rustic and rugged natural look which makes it a favourite of most home owners. A tile and grout cleaning and sealing Warrington professional will ask you to follow these simple steps to keep your travertine beautiful and bright.

The Daily Care

Travertine has a unique rugged texture that is a result of the numerous pores that are present on the surface. Interestingly, the feature that gives it this preferred look is primarily responsible for the collection of dirt and grime. So, a regular cleaning regime needs to be maintained for your travertine.

Acidity, heat, scratches and stains are the worst enemies of travertine. Do not place any hot container directly on the stone surface; use mats and coasters instead. If there are any oil, juice or alcohol spills clean the surface without any delay. Do not rub the surface with abrasive cleaners; this will spoil the surface sealing and also push the spill further into the pores.

The Right Cleaners

For a routine cleaning of travertine you can always use a vacuum cleaner because this will help in extracting the dirt from the small hidden pores. A tile and grout cleaning and sealing Warrington expert will always advise you against the use of any strong chemical cleaner for your travertine.

Bleach, ammonia or the daily household cleaners are not suitable for travertine surfaces. Buy only products marked as ‘safe for natural stone’ for cleaning travertine. Vinegar, which is often used as an effective household cleaner, must never be used on travertine because this is acidic.

Sealing

For a proper maintenance of your travertine surface, you need to seal the tile once a year. This is best done by a tile and grout cleaning and sealing Warrington expert. A correct application of the sealer will not only give your stone a fresh new look, but also protect dirt and grime from penetrating the surface.
