Travertine Tile Maintenance
To remove any excess sealer before cleaning use Tile Doctor Remove & Go Sealer remover.
Use Tile Doctor Pro-Clean Stone, Tile & Grout cleaner to effectively clean tiles, highly effective against Wax Sealers, Grease, Grime and general dirt build up.
Remove any cleaning solution using a wet-dry vac machine (any cleaning solution left on the surface may impact the performance of the sealer) then neutralise floor with clean water prior to sealing, remove with a wet-dry Vac machine and allow to dry for 12 hours or more.
|To restore a deep polish on Travertine use Burnishing Pads in conjunction with a buffing machine.|
Apply Tile Doctor Colour Grow sealer using a paintpad applicator and tray. 2 coats of sealant should be sufficent, always allow to dry before applying further coats. Use a water test to achieve full cure sealability (F.C.S.).
Most sealers break down after 2-3 years (depending on usage and cleaning products used) so for regular cleaning use a sealer friendly cleaning product such as Neutral Tile Cleaner which has been especially formulated for the regular cleaning of Sealed Stone and Tile surfaces keeping them fresh with a pleasant mint scent.
