Travertine floor sealed before cleaning

Asked by Diana Mera from Hereford: We have recently moved into a new build with travertine flooring in kitchen and bathrooms, unfortuately the floors have been sealed without cleaning and frankly look a mess. Where do we start?

TileProf says: Hi Diana you will have to strip off the old sealer first, which won't be easy on a wall and then rinse off with water and leave to dry and then re-seal. To strip off the sealer use Tile Doctor Remove and Go http://www.tiledoctor.co.uk/Remover.html, read the instructions on the back of the bottle and then once clean and dry apply a coat or two of Tile Doctor Ultra-seal http://www.tiledoctor.co.uk/TD-Ultra-Seal.html.
