Like other natural stones, travertine is best looked after by regular cleaning with a stone soap. There are a number of these products on the market – we sell the market leading lithofin brand and the products you need are Easy Care for day to day cleaning and ‘powerclean’ for occasional deep cleaning
The correct cleaning of a stone floor will, over time enhances its appearance and resistance to dirt. Prior to cleaning, the floor should be swept with a soft broom or vacuumed to remove grit and dust. For routine cleaning the floor should be mopped with a well wrung out flat-bottomed mop using a neutral ph soap dissolved in warm water. Between applications the mop should be rinsed in the sink or another bucket of clean water. We recommend Lithofin Easy care. The floor should not be rinsed after applying the easy care but left to dry naturally.
Periodically a stone floor can be deep cleaned with Lithofin Powerclean.
Two neat coats of wax are applied after installation and once the floor has been sealed with Lithofin stainstop.
Resealing of stone floors in domestic settings is typically required every 5 to 7 years.
