Testimonials

My mother's tiles were old and ugly, as she has been living in the same house her entire life without ever really taking care of her tiles. I called Tile Cleaners to get advice on what to do with them. They came to her house the next day to have a look at my mum's tiles. I am very satisfied with how patient and highly professional you were with my mother. I am sorry I couldn't be there when you arrived, and I am really impressed by how you managed to explain everything to my mom and help her out. Thank you for doing a great job.

Angela Coopers, Concord, NSW

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.

Anna Rodwell, Tingalpa, QLD

I was about to sell my business and wanted to clean and reseal my vinyl floors to improve the looks of them before having people over for inspection of the property. I did a booking with another company but was horrified when I realized that my floor was back to its horrible look in less than two weeks. I carefully looked up other cleaning companies, scared that I would chose the wrong cleaning company. A friend of mine recommended Tile Cleaners, but after what happened to my floor last time I got it cleaned I was really skeptic, but gave it a go. All I can say is thank you guys so much for a quick response and a good job. I sold the office and left your contact details with the new owner for future cleaning.

Travertine tile often has a fibrous or concentric appearance and exists in white, tan and cream-colored varieties. It is formed by a process of rapid precipitation of calcium carbonate, often at the mouth of a hot spring or in a limestone cave. In the latter it can form stalactites, stalagmites and other speleothems. It is frequently used in Italy and elsewhere as a building material.

The resulting stone is a smooth and very hard substance further characterized by its porous surface. These pores are the result of gases escaping as the travertine is formed.

By the time it is quarried, travertine is naturally beautiful - a smooth, dense stone that exhibits a notable creamy color that evokes a certain old-world refinement.

Travertine can be left in its natural state, with no polishing. Etched by acids. Porous with many visible holes, often filled with epoxy. Polishing unfilled travertine can be tricky. Polishing powders tend to accumulate in the holes and can make clean-up difficult. Because it is soft and has epoxy-filled holes, it should never be cleaned at pressures above 800 PSI and then only if the grout is in good condition.

Sealants are layer forming treatments that produce a shiny (or natural) protective film on the surface. This sealer must be stripped and re applied from time to time. Different sealants are recommended for indoors than outdoors, and sealants cant vary in type, lifetime (durability), stain protective properties, and slipp resisting properties.

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

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

Frequently Asked Questions


Travertine is a type of limestone that falls between marble and limestone in terms of its development over thousands of years. It is formed by the rapid precipitation of calcium carbonate in mineral springs, hot springs, underground rivers, and other water sources. Travertine typically displays a fibrous or concentric appearance and comes in various colors such as white, tan, and cream. It can be found in formations like stalactites, stalagmites, and other speleothems in limestone caves or at the mouths of hot springs. Travertine is commonly used as a construction material in Italy and other regions. It is important to note that travertine tiles are often porous and susceptible to staining due to the presence of escape gases during its formation. Therefore, professionally sealing porous travertine tiles is crucial, especially when they are exposed to domestic dirt or residue.

When your Travertine floors appear dull and lack their usual shine, despite thorough domestic cleaning, it is a clear sign that professional cleaning is required. The dull and matte appearance indicates the accumulation of dirt and grime that cannot be effectively removed through regular cleaning methods. Another indication is when the Travertine tiles start staining easily, which suggests that the previous sealer has worn off, leaving the surface vulnerable to staining. In such cases, immediate resealing becomes essential to prevent further damage from staining. By addressing these signs promptly and seeking professional cleaning and resealing, you can restore the beauty and protect the longevity of your Travertine floors.

To maintain the fresh appearance of your Travertine tiles, it is advised to follow a regular cleaning routine. Tile Cleaning recommend cleaning the tiles and grout on a weekly basis using a damp microfiber cloth and a mild detergent. This will effectively remove any dirt or grime from the tiled surface. It is important to avoid using strong detergents that contain strong acids or alkalis, as they can potentially affect the sealer. Instead, mild detergents and pH neutral substances are strongly recommended. For added protection against staining, the best advice is to seal your Travertine tiles using one of our highest quality sealers. Sealing is an excellent preventive measure that safeguards your Travertine tiles and helps maintain their pristine condition.

Tile Cleaning may be able to remove a stain from your Travertine floor if it is relatively new and hasn't deeply penetrated the stone. However, we cannot provide a guarantee of complete stain removal; our commitment is to clean the area to the best possible condition. The effectiveness of stain removal also depends on whether the Travertine tiles have been previously sealed or not. In some cases, stains may have penetrated the natural stone and settled beneath the surface, making them more challenging to clean. It is important to consider having us perform a comprehensive process of stripping, cleaning, and sealing your Travertine floor. This ensures that future stains are prevented from penetrating the surface and enhances the overall stain resistance of your Travertine floors.

For the cleaning of Travertine tiles, Tile Cleaning charges based on a per square meter rate for each individual room. The Tile Cleaners website provides a price list that you can review for more details. It is recommended to measure each room individually before our team arrives, as this ensures a fast and convenient billing process for everyone involved. By having the measurements ready, we can accurately calculate the costs and expedite the payment process.

To measure the size of a Travertine area, it is recommended to measure each room individually. The measurement is calculated by multiplying the width of the room by its length. For instance, if a room is 3 meters long and 2 meters wide, the total area would be calculated as 3 multiplied by 2, resulting in a total of 6 square meters. By measuring each room separately, you can accurately determine the total size of the Travertine area.

Tile Cleaning provides assistance with moving furniture during the floor sealing process. Their team of dedicated technicians is available to help with the relocation of furniture items that can be reasonably managed by one person, such as those with wheels or lightweight furniture like tables and chairs. However, it is important to keep in mind that while Tile Cleaning takes precautions to protect your belongings, they cannot be held responsible for any damages that may occur during the furniture moving process. To ensure the safety of valuable or fragile items, it is recommended to either relocate them to a secure area or properly secure them before the technicians arrive. By taking these necessary precautions, you can help ensure the safety of your furniture and minimize the risk of potential damage while the floor sealing process is being carried out.

To prepare for the cleaning of your Travertine floors, it is necessary to remove all furniture and items from the floor. This ensures that the area is clear and ready for the cleaning process when our team arrives. By moving furniture and items off the floor, you enable our technicians to have unobstructed access and provide thorough cleaning to your Travertine floors.
