This Beautiful Travertine Became a Pool Deck's Perfect Feature After a Stone Sealing Service in Scottsdale, AZ
September 23, 2016
Following the tradition of spending happy afternoons surrounded by the whole family eating, dancing, and sharing next to a pleasant pool in their former house, these Scottsdale residents decided to have one built outside their new home. After a certain time and several pool parties, the surface around the pool area, which was totally covered by travertine tiles, started to become dull. The owners began to think that they had probably made a mistake when choosing this material, which was recommended to them by an expert in pool design.
One day, they spoke to a neighbor about it. This man told them about a Scottsdale stone sealing
service company that could solve the problem. They immediately researched on internet, found Sir Grout Phoenix's website, and contacted us. They selected a date for our hard surface restoration specialists to go and check out their travertine.
When the day came, Sir Grout Phoenix's stone sealing service team went for the consultation. While they were checking the area, they ascertained that the beautiful travertine floor around the pool was dull due to a combination of long time sun exposure, water spilling, and improper care. During their conversation, the owners of the house emphasized that they wanted the color of the stone to be deeper, but also did not wish to have it shiny, since they were really worried that the restoration would make the stone slippery and dangerous. They considered that the pool was a recreational site where all the family, including kids, walk and play. Their main concern was safety.
Sir Grout Phoenix's specialists told them that a solvent-based penetrating enhancer should be used, as this type of hard surface restorer would seal the stone and give it back its color. Also, since this type of product is designed to adhere to the stone's substrate, it doesn't alter the coefficient of friction on the surface. Thus, it wouldn't be slippery at all. The clients were convinced by the explanation provided by our technicians and decided to have service done to their pool area, expecting it would work as they wanted.
Sir Grout Phoenix's hard surface restoration specialists started applying the penetrating enhancer and, as the work progressed, the gradual change on the floor's surface could be noticed. The lively, beautiful, natural colors of the travertine tiles started to appear as if they were brand new, exceeding the clients' expectations. These homeowners went from hopelessness to positive, imperturbable relief.
When the restoration service was finished, the change was significant. All the travertine tiles that covered the entire pool area had gone back to their original appearance, providing the look that the owners were expecting for this floor. After these Scottsdale citizens saw the final product, they wore big smiles of satisfaction, since the enhancer had brought new life to the floor and to the entire pool area.
After that, Sir Grout Phoenix's team provided them some information on how to appropriately clean and maintain the tiles to prolong the durability of the color and the travertine, so they could give the floor the necessary care and avoid stains, permanent soiling, and deterioration.
The clients were advised to scrub the whole space with a suitable cleaner solution using a cotton mop, cloth, sponge, or non-metallic brush. In addition, they added that it was important to clean spills immediately to assure minimization of any damage to the stone. In the end, the homeowners expressed they were pleased with the service and thanked the team for bringing their beloved floor's lively color back.
