Timber, Sap & Leaf stains

Recently we decided to turn our dried up, tired excuse for a lawn into an inviting travertine paved courtyard area to enjoy summer barbeques, winter chestnut roasting, and a place where our toddler can ride his bike or throw pegs at a wall. So we built the privacy screen (thanks Better Homes & Gardens®).

Of course, we did one coat of sealer for the timber but were in too much of a hurry to finish the job. So what happened? Well at the first sight of rain, the timber tannin leeched out onto our freshly tiled and grouted travertine pavers. Disappointed is not the word I heard once the sun came out and we saw the mess nature left us.

Fortunately, Spirit Marble & Tile Care’s product – Bright As – came to the rescue. The tannin stains disappeared before our eyes and was very easy to use and clean up afterwards (I did it whilst junior was having his nap).

The lesson here? Clean and seal your porous tiles and pavers as soon as the job is finished. But if you get stuck, there’s almost always a way to fix it with Spirit Marble & Tile Care products available at Tile Living today.
