Travertine Qualities

Travertine is a natural stone much like marble, limestone, onyx, granite and slate. The major difference between other natural stones and travertine is evident in the formation, hardness and appearance of the rock. Travertine is a later formation of limestone. In Texas, the city of Austin and its surrounding “Hill Country” to the south is built on limestone. The area has many travertine formations, such as those found at Gorman Falls within Colorado Bend State Park, the nature preserve known as Hamilton Pool, the West Cave Preserve, and Krause Springs in Spicewood. Travertine is one of the more popular stones in modern architecture. The largest building in the world is actually constructed mostly of travertine.

The stone is characterized by the holes or troughs in its surface. Even though these troughs naturally occur,they suggest signs of considerable wear and tear over time. These holes can be filled with a special travertine filler. Over time honed and filled Travertine can release the epoxies that can make them look so smooth. Our fillers can be color matched to your tile.

Travertine Floor Care

Caring for your travertine floors can seem harder than it needs to be. There are a few tasks that you can do that will help. First and foremost, is to start with a floor that has been properly conditioned to last. This can include cleaning, polishing, patching holes, grinding and sealing. After your floor gets what it "it needs to succeed" you can then follow these simple steps to keep your floor beautiful for years and years to come.

  • First: Make sure to keep dirt to a minimum! Heavy soiled travertine will scratch Easier and will show signs of wear faster than a regularly swept and mopped Floor.
  • Second: Clean up any and all types of spills as soon as they occur. Spills can and will etch your stone. Yes, even when sealed properly!
  • ​Third: Only use a PH Neutral cleaner to mop your floor or treat spills. We do leave you with a produce we recommend after we service your travertine.
  • Fourth: When expecting high traffic (parties, construction, animals in and out of the house) mop before so dirt and dust won't be pushed down and scratch you floor.
  • Fifth: Vacuuming can help but always be careful not to move to fast or aggressively as this could cause undo wear and scratched to your finish.

Got Bayou City Floor Retorers name from Angies List. Will was very professional in all matters concerned with our job. Not only was his price better that the other 2 bids we got but he also explained the reason he used a higher quality product and I certainly agree with that. We bought this house new almost to the day 2 years ago and the grout looks as good as it did when we moved in. This has been accomplished by simply vacuuming on average 1 time a week and mopping once a month. I can not stress how satisfied and happy we are with the high quality of work done by Bayou City. I have absolutely no reservations in recommending this company for any grout work you may want done. Oh yes, while here been filled a hole that had been made on the floor when a barbell had been dropped. He did such and excellent job and the hole in the floor is now invisible plus he did not even charge us for doing this work. Pick this company for your work. You will not regret it. Rick Vardeman

We were getting our house ready to sell and the grout in our tile looked dirty and was popping up. William and his company came out and cleaned our grout, repaired the areas where grout was popping out and then stained our grout to new colors that matched the house better (honestly wish we would have done that part prior to deciding to sell). The house looked great and it sold in one day. The tile looked like a brand new installation. I would recommend Bayou City Floor Restorers for any floor and stone refurbishment and repair.

Bayou City Floor Restorers helped restore the look of our outdoor concrete floor by cleaning and sealing the concrete. Our floor is stamped and stained and the stain was looking dull. We had a party coming up and William and his company came and completed the job in a professional and very timely manner. Both front and back patios looked great for the party! I recommend Bayou City Floor Restorers for any floor restoration project.

Wow, what a difference! My Travertine floors needed some serious attention! I hired Bayou City Floor Restorers to fully restore my stone floors. They were extremely dirty, almost black. William and his crew showed up in the morning and diligently worked until the evening. To my amazement the floors looked better than they ever did! The grout was clean, the floor looked like it had depth and design, and the polish was absolutely outstanding! “I can see my face in the floor!!” Hard working and in and out of your hair before you know it! Definitely recommend calling, William will answer all your questions.
