My Clean Grout
Specializes in Travertine Polishing and Honing

Travertine Surfaces

Travertine is a banded sedimentary rock whose formation is similar to that of limestone. Hot springs and rivers evaporate to expose travertine deposits, which is why the stone bares percolations or pitted holes.

This heat and pressure-resistant stone have been a popular building material since the Middle Ages. The Romans used it to construct bath complexes, monuments, and amphitheaters. Being easy-to-cut and durable, this stone finds multiple uses, especially in constructing patios, garden paths, pool areas, stair treads, flooring, and fireplace mantels.

Travertine tiles are available in numerous finishes. If you are looking to have travertine surfaces in your property, contact My Clean Grout for complete marble, polishing and cleaning services.

Since ancient times travertine has been prized for its beauty and elegance. Used in both art and construction, it is frequently associated with affluence and refined tastes. Keeping your travertine in pristine condition, however, requires special care. Cleaning travertine properly will preserve its shine and brilliance for as long as you own it.

Travertine flooring tiles come in two basic finishes:

Polished Travertine

Polished travertine is finished to a high sheen that shows off the beauty and grain of the stone. However, the finish can be slick and slippery, especially when wet. One strategy is to make liberal use of area rugs to protect from slipping. A Travertine Maintenance Program is suggested to keep polished travertine looking consistently at there best.

Honed Travertine

 A honed finish has mild reflectivity with a very clean velvety appearance. The stones smooth surface will have a little reflection of light. A honed finish is flatter and will almost always appear lighter in color. When a polished stone is honed, the depth, hues, and veins that were once very prevalent may be reduced. The degree of honing depends on the stone but may vary from light to heavy.

Caring for Travertine. 

Like all natural stones, travertine is porous. This means it can absorb liquids, most of which will stain and damage your travertine. To protect your investment, a sealer should be applied when your travertine is installed. Your marble sealer, however, can be worn away by common household substances including cleaning products. So when cleaning marble be sure you always use a pH neutral stone cleaner. We recommend Green Clean, a My Clean Grout product. Call 780-417-9080 to find a location near you to purchase a bottle of Green Clean.

Avoid using harsh cleaning chemicals, including bleach wipes, vinegar, and cleaners with lemon or orange in them. In fact, most cleaning products you find in your grocery store will damage your marble and marble sealer.

How to Clean Travertine Surfaces

The first step in properly cleaning travertine surfaces is to dab – (do not wipe!!) any spills as soon as they occur. Wine, certain cosmetics, and most food condiments are acidic; they will wear away your marble sealer and etch your marble (etching is permanent damage that will have to be polished away by a professional).

Next, clean away crumbs, dust and other bits of dirt using something soft, like a microfiber cloth.

Finally, clean your travertine with a specially formulated, pH neutral stone cleaner such as Green Clean Used on a daily basis, this product will keep your marble clean, and help keep the polish longer. Do not use vinegar or other products with an acidic nature.

For particularly tough soap scum or mineral build-up, treat your shower with Green Clean in a spray bottle.


We don not use products that can
damage a floor like waxes or crystallization.


How to Clean Travertine Floors

Grit and dirt tracked in from outdoors can scratch the surface of your Travertine floors. You can keep them looking beautiful simply by dust-mopping with a microfiber cloth on a daily basis. When a more thorough cleaning is necessary, spray your marble floors with Green Clean and wipe clean for a streak-free shine.
