Cleaning Sandstone and Travertine Surfaces from Dry-Treat

Bellevue Hill Home

THE PROJECT: The exclusive suburb of Bellevue Hill is located in Sydney's eastern suburbs. Meaning beautiful view, the suburb was named by the 5th Governor of NSW Lachlan Macquarie.

It's not hard to see why, with panoramic harbour views and minutes from Sydney's famous beaches. The owner of this Bellevue home wasn't quite able to appreciate the views.

The travertine patio and sandstone stairway where in need of a good clean. Protection from staining and damage caused by water was also requested.

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS:

  • Patio and stairs needed to be thoroughly cleaned
  • Excellent stain protection
  • Treatment had to protect against efflorescence and salt spalling
  • Protection had to be long lasting

THE DRY-TREAT SOLUTION:
The porous sandstone and travertine surfaces were constantly being stained. Sealing the surfaces would limit water ingress, reducing the amount of staining. The travertine pool coping was around a salt water pool. This soft, porous stone was therefore at risk to salt spalling and efflorescence. For these reasons STAIN-PROOF™ Original and DRY-TREAT 40SK™ were selected for the project.
