Sealer for polished travertine

by Calina


I want to ask what sealants do you recommend for a polished travertine,and how long needed for reapplication.

I was told to look for a penetrating solvent based sealer, but I am not sure which one is the best out there.

Thank you

Hi Calina,

Yes using a solvent based sealer is better than a water based sealer for certain natural stone.

In my opinion, solvent based will be a good choice for your polished travertine floor.

You can use the one we sell here on our website or any other you can find at a tile store.

Remember, the sealer is only used to help reduce the likelihood of staining.

A sealer will not prevent etching from any acidic chemical (orange juice of vinegar), or from dirt building up.

One of the most important things to remember is maintenance and periodically scrubbing your floor to lift any dirt that builds up.

When you do a good scrubbing, it's always best to seal again, even if the sealer is said to last many years.

Again, the sealer is no magic chemical, it's you maintaining your floor and scrubbing it that will preserve its look.

You don't need to be worried about finding the best sealer available. Just be diligent about maintenance and scrubbing once in a while and you should be fine with just about any sealer.

I hope this helps.
