Maintenance of travertine is not tedious but there are a few things that should be taken care of.
- Since travertine is a natural stone, use of chemicals and cleaning products may scratch the surface of the stone.
- Sticking to simple dusting and mopping will keep travertine tiles beautiful for a long time.
- Since travertine is porous, in case of a spill, immediately clean the surface and don’t let the liquid seep into the stone. If you want to use a cleaner, make sure you buy one that’s specifically meant to clean travertine.
