The fact that travertine countertops add value to any home does not mean that you should overlook the maintenance. Like other materials such countertops require some care so that their long life and durability are guaranteed. As travertine is a fairly porous material, any spills should be wiped up in order to prevent absorption. Do not use cleaning substances containing acids as they may cause an erosion and leave stains. Sealing is essential for the travertine countertops, especially if there is a regular contact with water. It is advisable to use soft cloths to wipe the surface of the countertop and if you follow these basic maintenance rules you can be sure that the beautiful appearance of your travertine countertop will remain intact.
