The look and feel of travertine tiles is luxurious, elegant and chic, which is why this material has proven so popular with home decorators and designers alike. Travertine is a naturally occurring stone that gives a natural feel to the decor without being too rugged or rustic, but it can require some careful care on your part if you wish to preserve its beauty and durability. Here are 4 top tips for cleaning and caring for your tiles:
Travertine is susceptible to damage from some acidic substances–substances which, unfortunately, are often found in the very place we like to use travertine tiling–the kitchen. Substances such as carbonated drinks, fruit juices, vinegar and sauces can damage the surface of the tile over time, so in order to protect your tiles from these things, try to avoid too much contact with acidic products and always clean up spills straight away.
Use Mild Detergent
Try to use a neutral (ie non-acidic) detergent for cleaning–this will remove stains without the damage or etching caused by acidic products.
