If the travertine stone used for walls, floors, kitchen and your bathroom is not a polished finish type, a protective layer should be applied to make sure it will not stain or damage in the event of an accidental spill.
It is recommended to quickly remove any materials slipped onto the travertine stone using hot water. Stains caused by materials such as tomato sauce, drinks may develop discoloration or damage the stone, so remove them as soon as possible. Be careful not to use acidic substances such as vinegar, alkali substances or any chemicals, as they may initially damage the protective layer and then damage the stone itself.
If the travertine stone is used for the flooring of your home, it is advised to use harmless tools to for cleaning to avoid etching because any scratches will cause damage to the protective layer and expose the stone. It is recommended to use a cloth for cleaning. Do not use a vacuum cleaner.
It is recommended to use doormats to keep foot traffic from bringing in damaging grime or abrasive dirt. It is also recommended to take care of the stone used in the baths or basins against the spill of toiletries such as perfumes, oil, shampoo, etc.
If the stain cannot be cleaned by the regular methods, then you should take alternative methods.
For example, you can mix the stone cleaning substance with baking powder and apply it over the stain, then cover it with a plastic wrap and let it stand for a few days.
You can then remove the stain. If the stains are deeper, you should administer alkaline solutions. In the case of a much deeper stain penetration, you will have to scrub the stone surface and polish it.
