Trevertine shower tiles

by David

I have trvertine shower tiles that are not polished and are now starting to go black with mould even though i clean them regular and seal them, how do i clean them up to be as good as new please?

Hi David,

You need to kill the mold. We have a product called mildew remover. Check the website's product page and look for the Mildew Remover.

It's strong, so make sure the window is open when you use it.

The directions say to spray it on and leave it sit for about 10 minutes and then rinse it.

It usually works without any scrubbing.

I hope this information helps.

MB 9 for Mildew is Sodium Hypochlorite
by: Anonymous

How is that safe for travertine?

MB-9 is very safe for travertine, marble and limestone. It's made for natural stone and ceramic, and porcelain tile.

I recommend it if you have a mildew problem.

Deep Cleaning Travertine
by: Pedro

Hi Kathline,

It does not require a professional, but I do recommend a good scrubbing. If you don't do it yourself, it could be a job for a professional.

What ever you decide to clean your travertine tile with, make sure it is not an acid. Vinegar is acid, so don't us it.

A good stone cleaner and a brush of some kind to scrub your floor. Make sure you rinse as good as you can.

If you do give it a good deep cleaning, I would seal your travertine and grout with a penetrating sealer.

I hope this information helps.

How to deep clean travertine tile not in a shower
by: Kathline Colins

What is the best way to deep clean travertine tile that is not in a shower? My tile is about 8 years old and has never had a good deep cleaning. Is a professional required to do this?
