Well my 1600 sq ft travertine tile job is done, in addition to all the tile on the main floor i also had to clean the carpet on entire second floor
Job took 6 hours, I had my helper guy and my friend with his TM so three of us
Sore back the next day, had to move a lot of furniture including a big piano
The carpet was the easy part.
Started out using the product you suggested Sam and it was doing ok but i was not totally satisfied
I switched over to groutMaster and then started to use my little oreck orbital with a scrub pad on it, the scrub pad was a pad meant for carpet but it was all i had on my truck
I sprayed down the cleaner, my helper ran the scrubber and my TM friend ran the spinner
we moved along at a pretty good pace, could have finished a lot quicker had it not been for all the furniture we had to move around, and these people had a lot furniture
any ways it cleaned up very good and you can see the difference as we were cleaning it
The groutMaster worked better then the other product.
Overall it looks better then when i started for sure but i was not completely 100% satisfied with end result but feel there was not much more i could have done
The home owners left shortly after i got there as they were going out of town, they had there pet sitter there the whole time watching us
She saw the difference it was making as we were cleaning and was impressed and after the job she told me she called the home owners and said we did a good job and that we were very nice people
The floor has a very dull finish, no shine at all and in my opinion it needs to be polished which after that there would be major improvement on its appearance
But i've never done that and although it doesn't seem to be to hard to do after watching many videos on youtube i don't know if its something i want to take on in this home
If i had a place with this travertine tile that i could practice on where it didn't matter if i screwed it up or not that would be nice, but that ain't gonna happen, not many places around with that type of tile that i've seen
