Travertine is a type of natural stone that is formed in hot springs and limestone caves. Its distinguishable features include troughs and pitted holes in its surface and color that can vary from grey to coral-red.
It can be challenging to maintain travertine flooring in high-traffic areas due to its porous, uneven texture. Pointed heels can get caught in the pits on travertine's surface, causing trip hazards and making the holes bigger. Further, travertine is highly reactive to acids, so spilling on it can be very destructive. However, most of these dangers can be avoided when a proper sealant is used to protect the surface.
