At The Grout Medic™, our service model is very specific in the services we offer. Our services include grout cleaning and sealing, grout cleaning and staining (change color), removal and replacement of broken tiles, removal and replacement of grout and caulking, along with being the only company to repair loose / hollow tiles without having to remove them.
The Grout Medic is the leader in the "after care" market of grout and tile repair. The products and equipment used are the latest in technology to bring grout and tile back to life. Our goal is to exceed our customers' expectations by providing quality, professional work usually completed in one day. The work is completed for a fraction of replacement costs and far less aggravation than renovation while achieving the same results!

Ted Lawlor |Ocean County, NJ:
"I have been in the Grout Medic system for more than a year and a half. Prior to joining the Team, I made my living in the restaurant business. The hours were long and the work was not rewarding. In my search for a new opportunity, I found my way to the Grout Medic. It combined everything I was looking for. The training knowledge was easy to adapt to, the start up expense wasn't difficult and it gave me more freedom to spend time with my family.
"Most importantly, the support was there for me to answer every question I had along the way in the beginning stages. Questions were answered in a timely manner and helped to complete the picture in terms of the knowledge needed in the field. The numbers are manageable and you can maximize them quickly. Go for it, I'm glad I did."
David Muirhead | Northern Virginia:
"In my previous professional career, I was a Meat cutter for about 11 years working for a supermarket. In that job, I had to work weekends and holidays. After doing that for many years, I decided I needed a change and started looking into buying a franchise.
"I began to do some research. I eventually found The Grout Medic, and I liked the royalties and the structure they had. I didn’t want to select a franchise that charges 10-12% in royalties as that lead me to believe I was being punished for growing my business.
"I have grown my franchise into one of the top 5 in the company in less than a year. This business is so simple, you can run it with 1-2 people, or you can do it my way and have an office, company vehicles and employees. This business will grow at your pace, whether you want to be owner/operator, or simply just the owner."
Steve Steffey | El Paso County, CO:
"After being in the service side (Customer and technical) of a major telecommunications equipment vendor for 20 + years, I was looking for a business that I could start and do the work by myself. My real objective was to grow the business by adding employees. The Grout Medic met my criteria. I was looking for an opportunity that provided formal training, proven systems and ongoing support.
"My background demanded the highest level of Customer satisfaction and professionalism. I was very sensitive during due diligence of the company's responsiveness and in depth discussions with existing franchisees. My wife and I have not been disappointed with our decision. The work is very rewarding. At the end of the job, it is very satisfying when the customer says, 'WOW' when they see the finished product. Running a new business has challenges, but you know you've got someone to call if needed."
