Step by step guides on how to pre seal, remove grout residue, clean, seal and maintain all stone & tile surfaces.
Travertine is a form of limestone deposited by mineral springs, especially hot springs. Travertine often has a fibrous or concentric appearance and exists in white, tan, cream-colored, and even rusty 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. Sealing travertine is highly recommended as stain removal can be limited due to its chemical sensitivity.
Limestone is a sedimentary rock composed largely of the minerals calcite and aragonite, which are different crystal forms of calcium carbonate (CaCO3). Most limestone is composed of skeletal fragments of marine organisms such as coral or foraminifera. Sealing limestone is highly recommended as stain removal can be limited due to its porosity and chemical sensitivity.
