Can a Travertine Tile Backsplash Stain?

A travertine tile backsplash can stain if something is left to sit on it too long or if the tile in not sealed. To ensure that you do not have to deal with stains, always wipe away splashes of food or grease as soon as they happen. Also, clean your backsplash daily with a mild soap and warm water. If it shows spots from water, it means that the water is seeping into the tile and you will need to seal it or add polish to seal the pores and alleviate any permanent stain damage.
