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.

Tyler D - Chicago, ILMarch 31, 2022
For some background, I was not happy with the work another contractor did when completing my bathroom renovation in the summer of 2020 (height of the uncertainty to come in the pandemic) and was desperate to have things fixed, and done right. I read reviews on Yelp and other review sites about the service that Sir Grout did in other's homes and made a call to get an estimate. I've worked with Dan twice now and he's great - providing friendly/relatable service, an affordable estimate, and scheduling my service quickly. The first service was to repair the cracked grout in my floors and nearly 2 years later, they still look new! Today, I had my second service to reseal the grout on my subway tile on the walls and surrounding the bathtub. Both times, the servicemen were super friendly, helpful in answering my questions, were trustworthy, and they did an excellent job. As a repeat customer, I would highly recommend them to anyone asking and will use them again on other projects I have coming up.
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 customize your travertine's surface 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.
