We were called to have a look at a travertine floor in Leeds.

The grout lines and the tiles were soiled  and were not looking their best as you can see from the photos below.

After discussing the customer requirements we offered to carry out a free demonstration around the grout lines so the customer could see how good the tiles could look with the right treatment.

We protected the working area with waxed brown paper.

The travertine floor was cleaned with specialist floor cleaning equipment and then we then filled the holes in the travertine tiles.

The floor was left to dry and it was sealed the following day.


The travertine stone floor was restored to its former glory and after we added the tile and grout sealer, the floor looked a completely different colour after the restoration.
