Maintenance Tips for a Travertine Shower
The main problems you may encounter in a travertine shower are soap scum, mold, and etching. To prevent these, we recommend using a squeegee after every shower to remove excess water from the stone. You can also dry the stone with a towel. Soap scum can be avoided by switching to a liquid body wash instead of a bar soap.
Once a week, we recommend using a travertine cleaner such as our “Natural Stone Cleaner and Conditioner.” Remember, abrasive cleaners and acidic ones can both damage travertine and should never be used.
If you already have a mold problem, Fuller Stone Care can provide expert deep cleaning to remove the mold, as well as special biocide treatments to help keep mold or mildew from returning.
How Much Does Professional Travertine Maintenance Care Cost?
It depends on what ongoing maintenance care you decide to invest in. When we work with you, we will go over all the options with you to provide comprehensive options, our recommendations, and the cost. We may recommend cleaning on one schedule, polishing on another, and sealing every few years. The price of our maintenance services will depend on which services you decide should be included.
