Travertine is a unique stone that comes in a couple different forms. Travertine comes in what is known as filled and unfilled. Travertine naturally has holes that run throughout the stone, and when left this way, the stone is considered unfilled. The filled travertine is exactly what it says—the holes are filled—giving the stone a smooth finish.

Jessica L - Chicago, ILJuly 15, 2018
We recently had our shower grout and sealing re-done and we were very pleased with the results. Dan initially did our quote and it was professional and he explained what would be done. Kevin was our technician and he did a fantastic job. I had to leave the house and he updated me on progress and when he would be done. I told him I hoped my shower would look like the before and after pics online and it did! He was a very personable guy and answered all my questions as well as recommendations on how to clean and maintain it properly. Highly recommend.
Travertine can come in either a honed (matte finish) or in a polished finish. These finishes need to be cared for and will from time to time need honing to remove scratches and etching, or will need to be re-polished and sealed. As can be seen in the picture above, Sir Grout Chicago offers services that will keep your travertine looking like new. We can clean, hone or polish, and seal your travertine. If you desire, we can custom finish your travertine to the finish of your choice. From time to time holes will become exposed in the filled travertine, and we can repair these holes and restore your travertine back to its original splendor.
Cleaning and Caring for your Travertine
We recommend cleaning travertine surfaces using a quality, stone-safe, neutral stone cleaner like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner
If your travertine becomes scratched or worn, Sir Grout Chicago can polish and restore your travertine vanities or floors back to the way they looked when they were first installed in your home.
