Travertine is a fantastic tiling solution, offering a stylish and durable look that suits any modern aesthetic. However, despite its obvious beauty and appeal, travertine is a notoriously unbalanced and temperamental surface that can easily become damaged or lose aesthetic value if it’s not treated properly. Travertine needs care and maintenance throughout its life to maintain and protect the delicate surface, and nowhere is this more important than travertine sealing.
Why you should seal travertine
Travertine needs sealing because the surface is porous. This is because the tiles are a form of limestone deposit, and as such are particularly affected by liquids. Any spills on travertine (which is bound to happen at some point in the home) are potentially disastrous, leading to permanent discolouration or pitting, and compromising the surface’s ability to resist scuffing or other physical damage. This is particularly problematic if the liquid is acidic, but can happen with any liquids. These kinds of damage or discolouration are permanent, and so to prevent them from happening in the first place is vital.
Sealing the travertine provides a physical barrier between the tiles and any potential spills or damage. If done properly by a professional, it won’t change the appearance of the tile, but will vastly improve its durability and longevity in the home, without compromising the aesthetic appeal.
