"The Bakers have taken care of our travertine for 6 or 7 years. They do a great job, and the shine lasts for a long time. If we should spill something which causes an etch, the polishing kit they supplied really works well to restore the shine to that etched area."

About Baker's Travertine Power Clean

Cleaning • Honing • Polishing • Sealing • Grinding

My name has proudly been on my business since 1988. Starting out in carpet cleaning, we evolved into tile cleaning/repair and then transitioned into Travertine and natural stone finishing. Not satisfied with the standard and available products and tools to finish Marble, and almost nothing available specifically for Travertine, I researched and developed my own unique abrasive system. My system and our powerful quality equipment provides great results in sometimes less than half the time than our top competitors.
