Travertine Floor Cleaning
Dublin Floor Cleaning provides professional travertine floor cleaning services. Travertine Is a beautiful natural stone which is extremely durable. Travertine is available in a variety of colours and finishes, the most widely used in Ireland is cream. Travertine tiles look imperfect and full of cracks but this is their natural look and adds to their beauty (we provide a crack filling service also but we would usually recommend keeping them as they are).
Travertine tiles also range in price and the difference can be quite considerable. The most expensive travertine floors are pretty perfect, without any cracks or cavities. Cheaper tiles are full of cavities.

How do we price travertine floor cleaning?
Generally the better the quality of your stone the more expensive the process will be to get rid of scratches and to give the floor a mirror like finish. Many people spend 100€ per square meter of travertine, supply and fit, but they will be looking for the cheapest way of re-polishing their floors. Like in anything else, you get what you pay for. Diamond polishing takes a lot of time and is a slow process but the results are just magic. You should expect to pay about 20€ per square meter for travertine floor cleaning & sealing and about 40€ per square meter of travertine diamond polishing. As I said, the results will not appear within a few minutes but when it does it will look like a mirror for a few years without the use of any chemicals.
How long does it take?
Polishing travertine floors will take time. A deep clean and a chemical sealant can be done within 5 hours (20-40 sq meter) but a diamond scratch removal plus a good polishing will take one full day and sometimes a few more sessions of high speed polishing will be required. This process cannot be done by untrained people and if high speed machines are used to polish your travertine it might end up polishing the floor uneven.
How often do you have to polish your travertine floors?
The traffic will determine how often your floors need to be polished. Some shopping centers have gangs of specialists polishing their floors each night to make sure their floors look like new. In a residential property one polishing every 24 months should do it.
