travertine pavers look milky after sealing
(Pembroke Pines, FL)
I had travertine pavers installed around my pool area and had the installer seal them with a water based sealer. I don't know what sealer was used as they didn't leave any behind. Initially they looked great but after a few months, the areas which are exposed to the rain/sun look washed out, with streaks and cloudy. The sealer was applied the same day they did the installation so I don't know if this has anything to do with it as the pavers were still damp. What can I use to remove the sealer completely and just leave the stone natural?
You could try muriatic acid, but do this with great care. I would test it on an out of the way stone or two first and see if it works.

Your design is amazing and we only hope we can do justice to it when we plant . You have such fantastic ideas and you are so open to suggestions and changes. Loved working with you - now if you could only come to Canada and plant it !!! "
