Etch and Scratch Removal on Travertine Floor – Polishing out an etch

When it comes to scratch and etch removal you are good hands. Ted McFadden has created more than 50 informative videos on youtube to show you how it’s done, not just the results. Our more than 1100 subscribers are constantly asking questions about how to refinish marble, travertine, and limestone. A recent request from a gentleman in Canada asked how a large etch could be removed from one floor tile without having to refinish the entire floor.

While the result was not exactly like the surrounding floor. The refinished area looks more smooth and new, it will blend quickly with the surrounding area and become invisible.

If you have any questions or requests, subscribe to my youtube channel here: My Youtube Channell and send me a message. When the opportunity arises on the material that you request I will be sure to post a video solving your problem.
