Hello this is Abbey Floor Care and we are near Ashbourne, Derbyshire restoring a travertine tile floor.
Travertine Sealing Ashbourne Derbyshire Project
We restored the floor just over four years ago, however the areas by the kitchen units have had heavy wear causing the surface sealer to wear away. So our client called on us for for our cleaning and Travertine Sealing services.

The wear had also caused the surface to lose its smooth finish.
Travertine Cleaning Ashbourne Stage 1
We started by installing protective plastic sheeting on the floor from the entrance to the job to protect it from soiling as we went to and from the work area.
We then installed protective sheeting to the walls, adjoining rooms and kitchen units to protect them from splashes and spills from the work area.
We started by deep cleaning the floor using rotary cleaning machines, 800 grit honing powder and cleaning chemicals.
The 800 grit honing powder was abrasive enough to work dirt out of tiles and grout lines without damaging the surface of the tiles.
Once the floor had been carefully rinsed we hard honed the floor starting at 100 grit, up to 800 grit.
The 100 grit honing smoothed the surface of the tiles and rid of the majority of visible scuffs and scratches. We then honed the floor at 200, 400 and 800 grit, leaving the floor nice and smooth, ready for re-sealing
Before we re-sealed the floor we filled any holes with a colour matched grout.
Travertine Sealing Ashbourne Stage 2
Once the grout had hardened, we cleaned the surface and applied six coats of water based natural stone surface sealer.
This gave the floor a beautiful sheeen, matching the rest of the floor..
