Our Dallas travertine tile cleaning services
At Groutsmith Dallas, we get your travertine tile looking new again in the following ways:
- Cleaning & Polishing dull surfaces
- Removing stains
- Protecting and sealing your travertine
Although travertine is a very hard stone, it is also extremely porous to varying degrees. Travertine that is not sealed is subject to easy staining from liquids penetrating the surface. Even when the liquids evaporate, stains remain on your travertine surface.
The color, density, porosity and other qualities of travertine vary by the quarry where it originates. At Groutsmith Dallas, we understand the complexities of working with your unique travertine surface and treat it with care. When handled with the correct tools and techniques, travertine in your office or home will remain beautiful for many years.

Proper care of travertine
At Groutsmith Dallas, we work with you to ensure that you understand how to care for travertine to ensure its long-lasting beauty and durability. You should never clean travertine or other limestone with vinegar, bleach, lemon juice or other acidic substances. In addition, scouring creams or powders can etch, scratch or otherwise damage your travertine floors and other surfaces. These products also can permanently damage your grout lines.
At the other end of the spectrum, highly alkaline products can break down the sealant and leave your travertine floors and other surfaces at risk of stains and etch marks.
