Travertine is one of the most popular natural stones installed in showers. It has an incredible earth-tone appearance that exists of tan, white, cream-colored and even rusty varieties. The stone needs the correct service and care to keep its beauty, else it will make the entire surface look unpleasant. Most companies apply acidic cleaners from big box stores since they are cheap and easy to work with. However, these products eliminate mold, mildew and stains only at the top of the stone while damaging the integrity of the surface.
We are profoundly passionate about perfection and placing a temporary band-aid on the situation is not our style. pFOkUS is one of the leading quality cleaners and sealers manufacturing companies, with whom we have signed an exclusive deal to use their products. No matter how dirty or stained your travertine shower is, we will bring it to that mirror finish with our quality travertine tile cleaning service in Atlanta. We have discussed below everything about our healthy shower processes.
Cleaning, Prepping and Sanitizing Travertine and Grout:
Cleaning with patented products is the first step towards a successful restoration service. Not only does our exquisitely designed cleaner – Imperia cleans the stone and grout, it also sanitizes and preps the shower while seeping into the surface to eliminate all the deep stains, mold, mildew and soap scum. Even, it strips any sealers if present in the travertine and grout.
Fusing Sentura Instead of Caulking:
Shower caulking is for handymen as it is an easy process, offering a temporary solution. We are experts and we never use caulk, peeling or wears off the travertine tiles and grout in just six months. It washes out of the joints, allowing mold and mildew to lurk in the corners. Caulk also renders an unpleasant aspect with its bulky appearance.
We fuse Sentura – a two part pigmented flexible solvent epoxy/resin. It is formulated with a 1200psi adhesion, protecting all the corners for a lifetime with no peeling issue. We can pigment Sentura in more than 40 colors to make the surface look natural.
Covering All the Grout Lines with Pigmented Titanium:
Grout fills voids between the travertine tiles. Sometimes, just cleaning is not enough to remove all the stains as grout is a concrete based material that continuously absorbs moisture, causing mold, mildew and stains. Locking out the stains permanently has become second nature to us with Caponi, which is an exclusive grout sealer manufactured by pFOkUS.
It is a two part pigmented titanium epoxy/resin, covering all the grout lines in just one coat. It waterproofs the grout while penetrating into the surface to prevent stains, mold and mildew from taking place. Its over 40 color options are undoubtedly enough to match the current grout color.
Creating a Hydrophobic Travertine Surface with Natural Look Sealers:
Travertine is also very porous and will stain in a short order if not protected with powerful products. It comes with crevices, retaining moisture that stains the surface. We coat the stone with Repela-Bond – an invisible clear resin water based sealer, or Celine – a clear topical solvent based sealer.
Both sealants coat the travertine while penetrating deep to create a hydrophobic surface. Repela-Bond doesn’t close all the pours since it allows the travertine to breathe and leaves the stone with a lush natural look. However, Celine delivers an extra sheen to the surface.
Travertine Shower Maintenance with a 5 Year Labor Warranty:
Maintaining a travertine shower was also a tough job in itself, but now it has become easy with Valore – a patented maintenance cleaner. It should be sprayed once a week to the travertine and grout. Not only does Valore sanitize the surface, but it also adds a coat of sealer, offering you a healthy travertine shower with a 5 year labor warranty.
