Q. We are installing 12 X 12 travertine in a bathroom. Can you recommend sealer and cleaning products?
A. Travertine is a great choice for your bathroom. I would like you to download and read our Stone Care Guide. It will answer all of your questions and then some. You might also want to bookmark our website so you know where to go if any questions come up.
www.stonecarecentral.com has excellent products for stone care and maintenance. For sealing your stone and grout lines, use a high quality water based impregnating / penetrating sealer. For routine cleaning, spray a light mist of a Stonecare PRO Signature Daily Bath & Shower Cleaner on your shower walls and wipe with a squeegee after everyone has finished showering for the day. (Stay away from products like Windex and be especially careful of any 'bathroom' cleaners.)
Our stone PROs say that if homeowners did this one thing, it would save them potentially thousands of dollars of restoration work down the line.
For your mirrors over your travertine vanity tops or glass shower enclosures, use dilluted or ready to use Marble Cleaner for Marble, Travertine, Limestone and Onyx to avoid overspray from non-stone safe cleaners accidentally etching or damaging your stone.
If you do get soap build-up though, the Heavy Duty Soap Film remover is a product homeowners, hotels, and stone pros alike swear by.
If mold and mildew becomes a problem, try the Mold and Mildew Stain Remover. It works great and is safe for your travertine and other stone surfaces.
For your travertine floors, use dilluted Marble Cleaner.
Enjoy your travertine bath!
