RE: [sccpartners] Travertine Floor ! John Freitag 15 Jun 2010 10:10 EDT
The way to go about this job VERY CAREFULLY !
The way I would go about this job would be to do the following.
1. make sure the wood is properly caulked or grouted, so there are no cracks
for gaps next to the wood or the marble.
2. mask the wood floor with blue tape first. Cover All the wood.
3. then cover the blue tape with a red tape ( both tapes can be purchased
from StoneCare Central) cover all the wood.
4. start your process. If you get a good tape down you should be able to run
over the tape from one section to another. If the tape pulls from the wood
then you will need to stay inside the tape and do the edges by hand. I don't
think you will have any trouble with the tape as long as you use the tape I
recommended especially the red tape.
On most jobs I do not recommend more them 1 technician per job HOWEVER in
this case I will recommend you have one tech doing the cleaning and the
other tech their to vac up as you go this will eliminate the risk of water
getting on the wood and causing damage.
CAUTION --- YOU MUST PUT DOWN THE BLUE TAPE FIRST ON THE WOOD, IF YOU DON'T
AND USE THE RED TAPE FIRST YOU COULD PULL THE FINISH OFF THE WOOD,THE BLUE
TAPE WILL PROTECT THE FINISH.
ONLY TAPE OFF THE AREA YOU CAN COMPLETE IN ONE DAY. DO NO0T LEAVE THE TAPE
ON THE WOOD OVERNIGHT!
HOPE THIS HELPS

Subject: [sccpartners] Travertine Floor !
How do you go about cleaning a travertine floor that is surrounded with wood
planks? See the attached picture for an example. I have a potential job to
clean an unfilled travertine floor that is very dirty. I do these jobs
regularly, but not sure how to protect the wood. Again the attached picture
is an example not the actual potential job.
