    So I've been cleaning a lot of travertine lately. I've been using the Stone Pro deep clean. It works good but sometimes just doesn't cut it on some very dirty grout. Also when they have that area rug in the middle of the room and the travertine is all nice and bright it
    just doesn't seem to return back to that.
    What else is out there that I can use that will not take the Shine off their travertine?

    Thank you

    Does travertine have a shine naturally? procyon has always worked at cleaning grout for me.

    nope.


    Most Travertines with a "shine" are actually covered in foot oil, dog hair oil, mop water residue and goo..

    A high alkaline cleaner such as Flex, Enzall or Code Red shouldn't bother real diamond induced shines...

    Had one travertine all streaked in even rows.

    The previous homeowner had used a portable hard surface cleaning machine like a small homeowner hoover.

    We are not sure what was used but anticipate vinegar water possibly.

    Was a mess. They didn't want to spend money to fix it and I really didn't want to tackle trying to fix it.

    I looked at this polished saw cut today.

    Grout and fill was never sealed so I suggested Colorsealing for a perfect job.
