Hi, my name is Chris Wade, and I'm a Contractor from the City of Los Angeles. Today, we're going to show you how to clean stone tile in the shower. Here we are with some natural stone. There are a variety of natural stones. So, to clean a natural stone, each stone is going to have its dedicated stone cleaner. You do not want to use any household chemicals on this; vinegar, chlorine, whatever you think you may have that will clean it. Your local stone supplier will tell you what kind of stone cleaner to use based on what kind of stone you have. We're using this specific kind for this specific stone. But basically, the application is going to be the same. You just want to spray it on, apply it and you want to use something soft. The sponge is the best or soft mop sponge and you just want to just clean it like you normally would anything else. Little bit of pressure and just a little bit of harder pressure on the, any stains that you may come across. It's okay to go in between the grout; clean that up too. And you just want to apply, you know, if you have to use a couple more times; do it a couple more times. Once you do that, more importantly, the thing you got to remember is maintaining your natural stone. It is a natural product. It's not polished like a granite or marble. So, you want to maintain it as often as you possibly can; three times a week if necessary and it will guarantee the beauty of the stone. And that's about it.
