Scuffs in Honed Travertine

I have honed travertine floor tile and a few had developed scuffs from furniture legs. I say scuffs because they aren't deep anough to be called scratches, you can't feel them when running your finger across them. Can anyone suggest a strategy to buff these out?

Get your hands on some of this:

Aqua Mix - For Home Use - Product Detail - Cleaners - Grout Deep Clean

It should do the job.

If it does not easily buff out, you may need to use polishing pads.

When I replaced my dishwasher the plumbers scuffed my travertine sliding the machine across the floor. They were easily able to remove the scuff marks using 220 grit sandpaper. I know this because I was just sick over what had happened but they assured me they had done this type of repair before.

When they left one day before they fixed the scuffs I tried every cleaner I had and nothing worked until they sanded my floor. It was then necessary for them to also apply stone sealer to the repair to bring back the color of the stone and hide the white abraisions left by the sandpaper.

I sure hope my suggestion works for you if you try it. Bless your heat!
