Travertine Color Enhancement
Travertine is a handsome, naturally non-slip stone that’s popular for pool decks, patios, and other exterior applications. It has a beautiful shade range that, unfortunately, can lose its luster due to weathering, stains and age. NanoSeal color enhancement restores the like-new appearance of travertine. We offer a broad selection of colors in a penetrating sealant that also binds with the stone to strengthen an protect it against mold, mildew, and the harsh day to day environment. We proudly stand behind our 5 year warranty, so that you can enjoy the beauty and easy upkeep of your travertine and know that it will stay that way for years to come.
Your NanoSeal representative will spend time to understand your specific needs and concerns, and to answer any questions you may have. In all our applications, we only use highly trained technicians who are certified through NanoSeal University to provide you with the best outcome and complete customer satisfaction.
Day 1 – Your certified technician examines and evaluates the area to determine the condition and color of the travertine, including a plan to rejuvenate the color and remove stains, mold, mildew, and grime. Next, the team thoroughly sanitizes and cleans the surface, followed by pressure or soft washing and a final rinse of the area if needed to clear away any remaining cleaning solutions. Once it is completely clean, the surface is left to dry for 24 hours.
Day 2 – Prior to the NanoSeal color enhancing and protective application, the certified technician inspects the travertine to ensure that the surface is dry to the touch. Any sand between the travertine joints that may have been lost during the cleaning process will be replenished. The team then begins the one coat color restoring application using either the solvent-based or water-based products.
NanoSeal normally dries in sunny areas within 2-3 hours but it requires nearly 24-36 hours for curing. Shaded areas, low temperatures, or higher humidity slow down the drying process. The surface may be kept open to foot traffic in 2-3 hours and to vehicular traffic in 24-36 hours. NanoSeal recommends all sprinkler systems be turned off during this time to allow proper curing.
NanoSeal protects and strengthens your concrete with a superior breathable waterproof coating that discourages mold and mildew. Periodic washing with plain water to keep the area clean is recommended. Acids, gasoline, hydraulic fluids, and motor oil spills need to be removed from the surface as soon as possible.
