Travertine is a type of limestone. It is known for its many holes that are formed from sulfur bubbles eating away at the stone as it is formed. The holes can be filled with synthetic resins and cements or left in its
natural state. Travertine can be polished or left in its natural matte finish and is
often used for flooring, fireplace surrounds, table tops and bathroom applications.

For every day cleaning use mild dish soap, warm water and a soft cloth. There
are also many spray cleaners available for natural stone use.
Sealing of countertops
All Travertine countertops will be sealed before installation. 3 Guys Granite Inc.
is an accredited applicator for STAIN-PROOF Original ™ sealer. STAIN-PROOF
Original ™ is an impregnating, invisible and breathable sealer that protects
exposed natural stone, tiles, pavers, concrete and grout from damage caused by
water, salts and oil-based stains. Treated indoor and outdoor surfaces become
easier to clean, maintain, and keep looking good for longer. STAIN-PROOF
Original ™ provides lasting protection for natural stone.
If you think that your stone will need to be re-sealed, simply put a few drops of
water on your countertop and wait for 15-20 minutes. If you can see that the
water has been absorbed into the top it’s time to re-seal. The sealer that we use is estimated to be affective for approximately 15 years.
