Travertine Honing Services
Travertine honing is the most commonly performed polish on a travertine floor today. Honing is actually a type of polish, a lower level polish like a satin finish, and because most travertine floors come from the factory with that low shine/hone most people would like to keep it that way. When your travertine has been worn for several years, and has developed small holes, and enough surface scratches to dull the surface, or just plain dirty you might be ready for your travertine to be resurfaced. Just to clarify honing a floor is just a low level “abrasive polish”. There are several different level shines that you can achieve, a honed floor is a very custom polish.

Travertine Honing Processes
Before we can get started the floor must be cleaned. Then we are able to machine hone your travertine with the use of diamond abrasives. This procedure will remove minor scratches and surface abrasions and return the travertine to a like new appearance or in many instances better. If your tired of the honed look you can always choose a polished or higher hone depending upon your tastes and preferences. Travertine honing can also be performed with the use of an abrasive compound power also known as ,honing powders and state-of-the-art diamond pads. The most important thing is how you seal your travertine when you’re done honing because that’s going to keep it looking better for longer.
