Full Restoration

Travertine requires frequent cleaning and maintenance. Improper cleaners and acidic foods and drinks can leave dull spots on travertine. Erosive substances can become ground into the perforated stone, causing any number of issues. Travertine can be come scratched if heavy objects are slid across it.

Quality Stone Restoration remedies all of these issues and more. Our stone restoration technicians are trained in the careful handling of travertine. Our technicians have experience in restoring travertine and are formally trained in avoiding the common pitfalls of treating and caring for travertine stone. We use tools that are designed for the cleaning and restoration of porous stone and that won’t cause further damage to your travertine.

Using diamond abrasive pads, we carefully hone down travertine tile in a painstaking process that ultimately leaves your surfaces looking fantastic and free of etching and scratch marks.

Travertine Polishing

Let Quality Stone Restoration make your travertine shine like new! Our techniques produce both high-gloss and low-gloss finishes, whichever you prefer. Take a look at our photos and reviews to the polish we’ve achieved for other San Diego home owners and businesses.

Travertine Honing

Does your travertine shine too much? Many people prefer a more matte look for their travertine floors and showers. Removing gloss from stone is a process called honing. Our honing technique can remove gloss partially or completely. Whatever look you’re aiming for, we can achieve it.

Wear Removal of Travertine

You may notice, after a lot of regular use, that your travertine is growing dull in certain areas. This dulling often occurs in high-traffic areas, causing the travertine’s shine to look “off.” Using our restorative processes, our technicians can revive worn travertine, returning it to its original vibrance, oftentimes making it look better than new.

Protective Sealing of Travertine

Travertine should be sealed regularly to help keep the stone looking its best. Leaving travertine unsealed is not advised: spilled drinks and food will stain it faster if unprotected. A quality sealer greatly increases the amount of time you have to clean a mess before the mess negatively impacts your travertine. There are several types of sealers. We choose quality, industry-grade impregnating sealers to protect our customers’ travertine stone. Our technicians have the tools and experience to ensure the sealer is evenly and correctly applied for optimal protection.

Professional Cleaning

Frequent light cleaning of stone surfaces is ideal for overall maintenance. It is also important for a deep professional clean to be performed regularly. Quality Stone Restoration’s professional cleaning services involve stripping any topical sealer that may be present. Next, we thoroughly clean the stone using professional-grade cleaners that are specifically designed for use on natural stone. Lastly, we rinse off the cleansing agent, leaving a residue-free surface. We can then apply an impregnating sealer to help protect against and minimize future staining and soil.

Chip Repair

There are many reasons a travertine surface may become chipped. Whatever your travertine’s issue–whether it’s a simple crack or an entire segment of your travertine has chipped off and gone missing–we can address it. Call us for an in-home consultation to review different options for addressing your travertine repair.

Scratch Removal of Travertine

Travertine can become scratched with enough regular use. We’ve encountered many scratches in travertine and know exactly how to rectify them. Our diamond abrasives hone down the offending areas, erasing scratch marks until they’ve vanished entirely. Our process leaves you with smooth, unblemished travertine stone, with no dipping or other undesirable side effects.

Protective Sealing

While protectively sealing natural stone surfaces is not mandatory, it is very highly recommended. No sealer is an impenetrable barrier, but a quality sealer will go a long way toward protecting against staining and general soiling. A good sealer will make clean-up easier and much more effective than an unsealed surface, but in the end, if you spill something, it still needs to be cleaned up. Quality sealers will give you more time to do so.

Hole Filling of Travertine

Travertine is a versatile, porous stone. The holes that are the hallmark of travertine are often left open to create a rustic atmosphere. While stylish, holes in travertine can cause problems. These small cavities are hard to thoroughly clean and difficult to dry after mopping. Consequently, bacteria thrive in them. When the holes are filled, travertine requires much less maintenance and is less stressful to deal with. If you find you don’t have time to keep your travertine as clean as it should be, we can assist by filling the holes.

We have a few different hole filling procedures. For honed travertine, or travertine that’s less glossy, we use a factory grade travertine fill that isn’t reflective. This ensures that the filled hole will match the matte appearance of its surrounding surface. If your travertine is polished, we use a polyester resin glue mixed with pigments that are similar to your travertine’s coloring. This product offers a polished look that will be consistent with the surface around it.
