Can I fix Bad Sealer job on Travertine???

scoutyyyJune 14, 2011

In his haste, my DH used a crappy old sealer that was in garage (Tilelab matte sealer & finish)on our new Travertine floors and now they look awful. You can see every stroke he put down as well as any dirt that was on the tile and it even turned the grout dingy. Apparently the sealer was for exterior saltillo-type tiles.

Can we undo the damage? We bought the 511 Impregnator - is there some way to scrub off the old stuff to put down the 511?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Can you not go back to the dealer who sold you the floors and explain the problem? Anyone selling Travertine should have the answers your looking for. (unless its Lowes, HomeDepot or some discount yard) I certainly wouldn't want to take the advice of a "self-made internet expert". You need someone who is experienced with Travertine and can come to your home.
