Travertine is a natural stone that develops around mineral spring deposits. It is a type of limestone that has a unique and beautiful appearance. Travertine gets its color from extreme temperatures and precipitation. It can be white, red, yellow, orange, or brown. Travertine was first used in The Temple of Concord in 121 BC. It is an extremely striking and distinctive addition to any home.
Travertine must be maintained every couple of years depending on the traffic and wear and tear on the floor. Cleaning travertine is an extensive process that is best left up to a professional but if you have the travertine sealed it can add years of life to the floor. Polishing travertine is also a personal preference of the owner. Is a high polish more your style? Do you like the honed travertine look? Every home aesthetic is different.
