Why Do Travertine Countertops Need to Be Sealed?
In short, the reason why to seal your travertine countertops is because you want your natural stone to look nice for a long, long time. Travertine is a high-end, unique natural stone that mixes beauty with an antique look. Even though the calcium-based stone is strong enough for a countertop, it is also soft and porous. This means that travertine countertops absorb liquids that could leave stains, and to help minimize damage, they need to be sealed.
Having your travertine countertops sealed correctly is vitally important. When they are sealed properly, they resist staining from juice, wine, oil, nail polish and polish remover. When travertine is sealed it won’t harbor bacteria in the pores of the travertine and can be cleaned up with PH neutral travertine cleaner.
What does this mean?
Well, it means you may develop permanent stains if your travertine countertop is not sealed properly. For example: red wine, lemon juice, tomatoes… all acidic, all make unsealed travertine vulnerable. Even something as simple as water rings can put unsealed travertine at risk.
We can fill holes in travertine tile
Travertine has naturally occuring porous holes throughout it and we can fill these holes to get the look you desire. After filling the holes you can go with a honed look or a polished look depending on your preference. It is referred as as filled travertine. In general, unfilled travertine shouldn't be used in showers since it would more easily allow water to get behind it, have a tendency to gather debris, and maybe grow mold in those holes.
We can keep your travertine floor looking bright and shiny through our ongoing maintenance program.
