Testimonials

I have several different freshly laid tiles in my new house. All pathways have stone tiles and there are marble tiles in the bathrooms and porcelain in the kitchen. I needed to get them sealed and was not sure if it was possible to seal them all. I contacted Tile Cleaners because my dad recommended them. He had a similar situation in his house and was very happy with the job Tile Cleaners had done. I was very worried about my tiles since they were brand new and very expensive. Tile Cleaners team were very patient with me, explaining how they were going to apply the sealer on different types of tiles, what sealer they would use, how long it would last for and advised me on how to take care of my tiles. I called Tile Cleaners a few times confirming details, asking for prices, making sure they could to the job during the weekend etc. The guys were amazingly patient and helpful. When I had gathered all the information I wanted, I was ready to go ahead. The work done by Tile Cleaners actually took less time than what it took me looking for information about it. Sorry for the pain I caused, and again thank you.

Monica Petrovski, West Beach, SA

When I moved into my new house, I was shocked by how dirty and old the tiles in the entire house looked. I wasn't sure if they were supposed to be like that or if they were just really dirty. I decided to call Tile Cleaners and ask them to have a look and tell me what I could do to improve the look of my tiles. Tile Cleaners ® came the same weekend and managed to make my tiles look brand new. They also informed me that the sealer would protect my tiles for years to come. Amazing! Thank you guys! My floor looks gorgeous.

Amanda Burtender, Brighton East, VIC

I was about to sell my house, but was not happy with the tiles in the dining area. The tiles were white and shiny but the grout looked really dark and dirty. I already had a potential client; however the dark grout ruined the beauty of the room. I didn't have much time to fix the grout and decided to call Tile Cleaners as my real estate agency mentioned them. As my real estate agent said, Tile cleaners responded really quickly. They also pointed out that some of the grout was coming off in the hallway when they were there, which I had not even noticed. Thank you for fixing my problem so quickly. The house is sold now and I left your details with the new owner so they can keep the tiles in good condition.

All porous stone tiles should be sealed, sealing your travertine tiles will help prevent & reduce staining and result in maintenance becoming easier.

Sealing will keep most stains suspended at the surface by creating a barrier that provides protection against chemical attack, deterioration and contamination. Sealing is the first important step towards protecting your natural travertine against stains.

Limestone floor is actually quite porous and prone to scratching, staining and fracturing. It also needs to be allowed to breath, instead of being covered by synthetic sealers or urethane. We offer the right solution to protect your Limestone by using highly penetrating impregnating sealers.

The primary cause for polished stone floors becoming dull is walking on them. Prolonged foot traffic grinds and packs in dust, sand, and grit. Although the scratching that occurs is very fine, it eventually covers the majority of the surface and over time dulls the finish to the point where it loses its reflective properties. To make your stone surfaces smooth and reflective, we employ the use of high speed polishers.

Limestone is usually used in kitchens, floors, walls, bathrooms, dining rooms, around swimming pools, building foyers, public areas and facades. Since ancient times, stone has been popular as a building and decorating material. Its strength, durability, excellent insulation properties, ability to be shaped, and the variety of stone types and colours make it an exceptionally versatile building material. The porosity and makeup of limestone does however leave it prone to certain types of damage if unsealed.

What is Travertine?

Travertine is a stylish, functional and aesthetically attractive stone that gives a very appealing, old-world character to any home or business. Travertine pavers are particularly attractive around the swimming pool and surrounds with no two tiles looking the same.

Travertine forms in mineral springs, especially around hot springs, underground rivers and in limestone caves. Travertine is different to limestone (sedimentary) and marble (metamorphic) with the main characteristic of travertine being the holes within the stone created as a result of gases escaping as travertine is formed. The resulting stone is a smooth and very hard substance characterised by its porous surface.

Extensive deposits of travertine exist at Tivoli, near Rome, which is where the stone receives its name. Tivoli was known as Tiber in ancient Roman times. The ancient name for the stone was lapis tiburtinus meaning tibur stone, which has evolved to travertine.

Travertine can often appear fibrous or concentric and can come in a white, tan or a cream like colour.

Common Surface Finishes for Travertine

Honed: The surface of the tile is sanded to create a matte finish.

Tumbled: Travertine is tumbled with gravel and bearings, giving it a rough, aged appearance.

Brushed: A wire brush is used to give the surface of the travertine tile a worn, textured surface.

Filled: The pores in the travertine are filled with coloured resin or cement to produce a solid surface.

Polished: The travertine is sanded and polished, producing a shiny finish.

Sealing Travertine Tiles

Two main sealing options exist for travertine tiles

  • Deep Penetrating Impregnating Sealer
  • (Transparent Finish/Colour Enhancing Finish)

  • Topical Sealer
  • (Gloss/Satin/Matte Finish)

deepshield Travertine

A deep penetrating impregnating sealer protects travertine and grout from water and oil based stains by chemically reacting with the surface pores to create a breathable protective barrier.

An impregnating sealer protects the travertine surface and grout from absorbing stains while also resulting in cleaning and maintenance becoming much easier.

A penetrating impregnating transparent sealer enters the pores of your stone and once cured will not change the look of the stone. A penetrating colour enhancing sealer is designed to enhance and enrich the natural look of stone surfaces. Tile Cleaners® technicians are experts at applying all types of sealer and will ensure your travertine looks its absolute best.

Australia's Deepshield™ range of impregnating water based sealers last for up to 10 years while Deepshield™ Gold, based on the latest fluoro-bond technology lasts for up to 15 years.

Tile Cleaners® can apply a topical sealer when especially required to create a high gloss, satin sheen or matte finish to your surfaces. Topical sealer is also helpful in situations where the old solvent based sealer can not be completely removed from your travertine or when required to hide certain types of damage. Topical sealers have a life expectancy of around 3 years.

Should I Seal?

You can easily test how porous your natural travertine is by applying a drop of water to the surface and watching how the water is absorbed. You can then see how any type of water based stain is absorbed by the travertine tile surface and grout.

Types of sealers used on travertine tiles

There are two types of impregnating clear sealer, water based sealer & solvent based sealer.

Water based sealers and solvent-based sealers can both be used on travertine, however unless absolutely required for a specific reason, we always recommend applying a water based sealer that doesn't produce harmful fumes during application and removal.

In the past solvent based sealers were more widely used as they used to absorb deeper into the travertine and grout and would also last longer.

Today however, thanks to new technological advancements, it is recommended only to use water based sealers that last longer and cause less potential damage to health and property.

Topical sealer (glossy plastic coating over the top of the travertine) is still used on travertine, but these older style sealers can trap moisture in the stone and make the surface slippery when wet. When a topical sealer wears in higher traffic areas, the entire surface usually needs to be stripped and re-sealed.

It is important to ensure the correct water based sealer is applied to your travertine tile which will also depend on whether they are indoors or outdoors as most sealers will not last long outside due to being designed for internal use. If your travertine is outdoors, it is important to use a water based sealer that is specifically designed for outdoor travertine.

One of the most popular product ranges is Australian made Deepshield™ unique impregnating water based sealer that prolong the life of your surfaces by taking full advantage of recent advancements in nanotechnology, providing unmatched long-term stain resistance and reliability.

It is very important to ensure that tiles achieve their cleanest possible condition prior to being sealed. This will protect the appearance of the tile, and importantly ensure that there won't be any dirt, stains or other debris caught under the layer of sealant.

To provide the best possible protection from oil and water-based stains; to maintain the look and slip resistance of your travertine and to prevent damaging moisture from being trapped within the stone, it is recommended to seal your travertine with a high quality, invisible, fully breathable impregnating sealer.

Whether you decide to seal your natural travertine tiles using a Clear Impregnating Penetrating Sealer, a Colour Enhancing Penetrating Sealer that enriches the colour and texture of your stone or a high quality Topical Gloss/Satin/Matte Finish Sealer, with Tile Cleaners® you can rest assured your travertine tiles are receiving the best possible protection and care.

Cleaning Travertine Tiles

Different cleaning and maintenance methods should be used on travertine depending on its finish and whether it's sealed or left in its natural state.

In general, Travertine tiles should be cleaned and maintained with non acidic products, and it is recommended to have travertine professionally cleaned every few years to maintain their appearance and restore the fresh look once the tiles start to appear tired following regular daily use.

Travertine, like other calcareous stones such as limestone and marble, is referred to as "acid sensitive". Calcareous stones are readily dissolved in acid, therefore acidic cleaning products should not be used on Travertine tiles.

Stripping Travertine Tiles

When your travertine tiles begin to appear dull and start to stain easily, that usually means your previous sealer is wearing off and your travertine tiles are in danger of permanent damage. Tile Cleaners® strip/remove all necessary old sealer from your travertine tiles, restoring their natural fresh look using our state of the art cleaning machinery.

As Travertine tiles can be sealed, previous sealer may need to be removed and re-applied after it starts to wear off, this usually depends on the type of sealer used, method used during application and the amount of traffic or use. This process is called stripping and sealing, and is usually required every 2-10 years.

No matter where your travertine tiles are, Tile Cleaners® will strip, clean and professionally reseal them for you. In your kitchen, shower, bathroom, around the swimming pool, your backyard, outdoors or any hard to reach indoor areas.

Frequently Asked Questions


A sealer is a liquid, or carrier containing a resin that is applied to porous natural stone or porous man made surfaces that helps prevent staining from water and/or oil based materials as well as help to achieve better results when cleaning your surfaces.

Sealers are different from polishes and are actually designed to keep liquids and dirt particles from sinking into the natural stone. It is extremely important to have your travertine tiles sealed. All travertine tiles should be sealed when they are first installed; this initial seal can last up to 15 years. It is important to call us as soon as your travertine floors are installed so we can protect them before any accidental permanent damage occurs.

The best sealer to use for travertine pavers around the pool is our high quality Impregnating Penetrating Water Based Sealer that protects your stone to the core and eliminates the slipperiness factor other sealers can create with travertine pavers.

Tile Cleaners® advise the simple "water test". The water test is well known in the stone industry and it will help you determine whether your travertine floors require sealing. First you need to place a few drops of water on your stone and let it set for around 10 to 30 minutes then wipe it dry. If your stone did not darken, it means your travertine is perfectly sealed and does not require sealing, but if it has darkened, it means that the water was able to penetrate your stone and sealing is required.

All of our sealing products are water based, we do not apply solvent- based sealer except in certain cases where it is the only option. The sealer will not affect the texture of your travertine tiles in any way; however, it will protect your travertine from staining and maintain that lustrous, natural finish you are looking for.

Yes we do. Colour enhancer is a compound designed to enrich the natural look of travertine tiles. It darkens and enhances the colour of your tiles and brings out the natural beauty in your travertine, giving a slight wet look/low sheen.

Tile Cleaners® colours enhancer will not affect the texture of your travertine floors, however, it will enhance the colours of your travertine tiles and bring ut the natural beauty of your surfaces.

Our professional team will go through the job processes with you step by step so you know exactly what you're getting. The process includes stripping any previous sealer if it was applied, the travertine is then thoroughly cleaned and neutralised so that it is free of dust, residue and anything else that can affect the new sealer. A new sealer is applied to the dry travertine floor and allowed to set. The newly sealed travertine floor will not only look new again, it will be protected and result in your travertine becoming easier to maintain.

It all depends on the size of the area that we are sealing but most jobs take 4 - 8 hours to complete. We do cleaning and resealing in the same day so you don't have to fuss with more than one appointment.

It takes 4 hours to be touch dry and normally 24 hours for the sealer to fully cure, which is when you can put everything back into place. Nothing hard such as furniture can be moved on to the tiles and grout for at least 24 hours.

Tile Cleaners® apply two main types of high quality sealer, deep penetrating sealer and topical sealer. Topical Sealer has lifetime expectancy of around 3 years and Australia's Deepshield™ range of impregnating water based sealer's last for up to 10 years while Deepshield™ Gold based on the latest fluoro-bond technology can last for up to 15 years dependent on usage and weather conditions.

Deepshield™ Impregnating Penetrating Sealer does not alter the slipperiness of your travertine tiles' surface as the sealer penetrates the top layer of your travertine. Topical Sealer may result in your travertine floors becoming slippery when wet. To maintain the look and slip resistance of your travertine and to prevent damaging moisture from being trapped within the stone, it is recommended to seal your surfaces with a high quality, invisible, fully breathable impregnating sealer.

Any acidic substance is harmful for your travertine tiles, they can be etched(eaten/corroded) easily and sealing against acid attack is very difficult. The best way to protect your travertine tiles from acid attack is to seal and clean spills immediately. The high porosity of stone based tiles makes sealing a must in order to provide protection against future acid attack and liquid spillage.

Tile Cleaners® colour enhancing sealer may help hide those nasty scratches you have, but we cannot guarantee that they return to their original condition. Deepshield™ Penetrating Colour Enhancing Sealer darkens your travertine tiles by up to 20% and can help camouflage etches, restoring the natural, new look of your travertine floors.

To keep your travertine tiles and grout looking new, Tile Cleaners® recommend cleaning each week with a mild detergent to remove any dirt or grime from the travertine surface. Strong detergents(strong acid or alkali) may affect the sealer, mild detergents and pH neutral substances are strongly recommended. Our best advice to protect your travertine tiles is to seal them with one of our highest quality sealers. This is the best protection your travertine tiles can receive against staining.

Tile Cleaners® charge per square meter for each separate travertine room. There is a price list on the Tile Cleaners® website for you to review. Before we begin our work we will measure each room individually, confirm the work to be carried out as well as confirm all costs with you.

We recommend that you measure each travertine area separately. The simplest way to measure is by multiplying the width by the length. For example a room that is 3 meters long and 2 meters wide is 3 X 2 = 6m2 in total.
