Travertine is beautiful, but is also is a very porous stone so it absorbs liquids relatively quickly. Properly sealing your travertine paver tiles will prevent the penetration of liquids such as oil, spilled drinks, pool chemicals and other liquids. Sealing travertine also protects your pavers from mold buildup and staining. Our process also increases the integrity of the travertine so they won’t become loose. Additionally, or Zerorez Tampa sealers increase the tensile strength of travertine by up to 30%, helping to prevent cracking or chipping, as well as enhancing the natural beauty of this stunning stone.
Why Seal Travertine?
Travertine is limestone, which is a very porous material, susceptible to all kinds of staining and marking. Our professional Tampa cleaners know that oil, grease and rust are nearly impossible to remove because they are so easily absorbed into travertine. Unsealed travertine also retains water for long periods, so it’s the perfect breeding ground mold and mildew (yuck)!
Benefits of Travertine Cleaning
In our opinion, the best benefit is that it’s a FAST PROCESS! Using a Nano technology brick paver sealing system, Zerorez Tampa is able to clean, apply inhibitors, re-sand & apply sealer to travertine making them look better longer.
Additional benefits of travertine cleaning and sealing
- Protects against the intense Florida sun & rain.
- Protects brick pavers from stains.
- Inhibits weed growth and mildew from retaining water.
- Enhances the overall look of pavers thus adding more value to your Tampa area
- Locks pavers and jointing sand in place.
Why chose Zerorez over a competitor or doing it yourself?
Remember: Travertine is beautiful and thanks to those open pores and cravats that formed naturally, but that means it’s a tougher job to do properly. Travertine can easily fill with sealer, and once it dries your once pretty travertine pavers will look like you filled the pits with glue. Not a good look.
Therefore, we don’t recommend (we repeat-do NOT recommend) homeowners attempt to seal their travertine surfaces themselves. Don’t have a local handyman who’s not experienced with the material either, as even local paver sealing companies struggle with travertine cleaning and sealing. DIY’ing can also void your warranty meaning that the costly expense to restore pavers is on you.
As travertine is not as common as brick pavers here in the Tampa Bay area, most local paver sealing companies don’t have much experience sealing travertine. Zerorez Tampa can clean both commercial and residential applications.
