View Full Version : Mold in Travertine shower - how to get it out without ruining the stone?

This is a problem my neighbor is having. He has a shower made of unfinished travertine. Over the past several years, one section (near the edge) has grayed - the gray is gradually growing. I think mold has gotten in it. The problem is that all the mold-killing bathroom products specifically state that they are NOT for use on unfinished stone like Travertine; that they will mar the stone. How do I get the stone 'clean' and again completely mold free without ruining it? Any ideas?

I sell stones all the time travertine is very common in shower and if you seal it after installation you shouldn't have any issues with it.After all you can just do regular maintance if you already have an mold I recommend you use non acidic cleaners for natural stone cleaners with using brush......let me give you an website to help you out http://marbleflorida.com/support.aspx?sid=5
