If you've recently installed travertine tile shower, you may be wondering how to go about sealing it. If so, you'll be happy to learn that travertine tile is among the easiest types of tile to seal. Just complete these simple steps.

Step 1 - Clean Your Travertine Tile

Before proceeding to seal your travertine tile shower, clean it well with an all-natural, chemical-free tile cleaner in order to ensure that there are no harmful chemical reactions when you get around to applying your sealer. Once the tile is completely clean, use a water-filled spray bottle to rinse any remaining traces of your cleaner. Then dry the freshly cleaned shower with the clean cloth.

Step 2 - Seal Your Travertine Tile

When you are carrying out this step, it's generally a good idea to wear a mask and protective eyewear to shield yourself against fumes and drips. Pour your travertine sealer into a paint tray, then use a paintbrush or paint roller to distribute it evenly across your shower in smooth vertical strokes. Once the sealer has been applied to the entire shower, allow it to dry according to the packaging instructions before using your travertine tile shower.
