Removing Ring Stains From Travertine:

If you have this beautiful natural stone in your home or office you may have noticed ring stains on the floor, counter tops, or vanities. These rings are typically dull in nature and are obvious when sun light is present. Many of the ring stains that customers say they have on their surface are in fact etches from acidic liquids. Acids are in many cleaners, citrus, carbonated beverages, wine, beer, coffee, vinegar, even milk just to name a few. Acids react with the calcite based stone on a molecular level causing etching, the acid is literally eating the stone which gives the appearance of ring stains. Because it is shaped like a ring is from the glass or coffee cup.

If you have ring stains all the cleaning solutions in the world is NOT going to solve your problem. In order to pull out the ring stains you will need to consult a professional. The travertine will have to be re-polished using highly specialized equipment and solutions. This is not a place for amateurs. After the ring stain has been removed the entire surface should be stripped of any old sealers, cleaned and re-sealed. Keep in mind that sealers are NOT fail proof. You must take care of the stone in between professional visits. If you are not sure what to do please contact us for step by step instructions.

I hope this article was helpful to you... Until next time.
