Choosing Between Restoring and Replacing Marble and Travertine Floors

2 Mins read

Not all damaged surfaces, especially floors, are to be replaced. You can choose to repair some of the not-so-damaged surfaces and save money. However, the decision to repair or replace must be taken professionally. It is essential to know for sure if either choice works best.

There are times when you imagine replacement is the only option when repairs are best recommended. Since this is not your area of expertise, it is recommended that you work closely with professionals who are familiar with and experienced in this field. This is where Biz Floor Solutions comes in.

So how do you know when to replace or repair it?

1. Tile and grout

 Porcelain and ceramic tiles may be durable and strong but also break and chip with careless use and lack of proper maintenance. Scratches are common occurrences on tiles. It is easier to have the severely damaged tiles popped out and replaced by a handyman. However, if the damage is minor or has happened on th grout, it is easier to have these repaired and not replaced. A simple discoloration or staining of the grout should not scare you.

Sometimes it’s a simple seal that has accumulated dirt and grime and will soon peel off. In such cases, it is easier to repair this and fix the entire look. Hire the right practitioner to help with this. Experts at Biz Floor use high heat and pressure to repair such stains since all it takes is a deep, thorough cleaning. In the end, this is more cost-friendly than ripping off the entire floor and replacing it.

2. Travertine

This has to be ne of the constantly and quickly restored surfaces. Experts dealing with these natural stone surfaces will recommend restoration instead of replacement. Travertine may be natural, solid material that is durable, but it is also prone to damage and destruction. Scratches, dulling, and staining are some of the most popular issues that this stone suffers from. It is best to call the experts to come and check out the extent of the damage before writing off the issue as irredeemable.

When the professionals are involved, a lot of savings are made. They have the right tools to get a particular service done. You can have them come over and recommend the proper fix. This can be cleaning, honing, or polishing, depending on the issue and your travertine finish.

Cleaning helps remove the dirt and grime from the grout and can help bring back life to the floors. Honing helps remove scratching and etches that occur on these natural stone floors forgetting polishing that restores the shine, especially on the polished finish. Regardless of the problem, there is always a restorative solution before complete replacement is recommended.

After all, most fo floors are durable and will serve you for long before ever needing to be replaced. Take time to consult the experts and choose the right. Call us today to help you decide on the right solution for your floors.
