The Grout Medic FAQ's
Q. What type of sealer is used?
A. The Grout Medic sealer is a clear breathing penetrating type sealer. The sealer is applied by brush to the point of grout saturation and the excess is carefully wiped up.
Q. How long will it last?
A. While our sealer is rated as a 20 year sealer, The Tile Council of North America recommends that you have your grout sealed every two years.
Q. Does the sealer change the appearance of the grout?
A. No, the sealers used by The Grout Medic will not leave a glossy shine or change the look of your grout in any way.
Q. How long does it take the sealer to dry?
A. The Grout Medic sealer will dry to the touch within 1 hour under normal conditions (humidity, air temperature, etc.). The sealer will take up to 3 days to fully cure giving your floor maximum protection against contaminants causing discoloration.
Q. How should I clean my floor when the job is completed?
A. Simply use a sponge mop coupled with a PH neutral cleaner.
Q. Will the sealer keep my floor stain proof?
A. The Grout Medic sealer is designed to create stain resistance. The objective is to create reaction time, where a stain can be held at surface level where it can be easily cleaned within a reasonable period of time before it is able to be absorbed into the porous surface.
Q. What is grout staining?
A. Staining grout is the application of a grout colorant to completely change or enhance the color of your grout.
Q. Why stain my grout?
A. In some circumstances, your existing grout can be soiled to the point it will not clean well enough to be acceptable. Grout can also fade if exposed to excessive foot traffic or sunlight making it impossible to eliminate color variations in your grout.
Q. Can you make my grout lighter?
A. Yes, your existing grout can be re-colored to a lighter or darker shade of your existing grout or a different color altogether to match your changing décor.
Q. Can you tell if the grout has been stained?
A. The staining process will leave your grout looking brand new eliminating any color variations. The stain used is a penetrating stain leaving the grout in its natural state as it bonds to the silica in the grout joint. Some stains on the market are a topical stain that will cause your grout to look painted in its completed state.
Q. How do I schedule an estimate?
A. Simply click on the location nearest you to email the local office with your contact information or call the number of your local Grout Medic representative.
Q. How much does an estimate cost?
A. The Grout Medic will come to your home or business to provide a free written evaluation of your needs.
Q. How long does the estimate take?
A. In most cases, we can inspect the area and provide a written evaluation in 10 – 20 minutes.
Q. What times do your provide estimates?
A. We will provide a free evaluation at a time that accommodates your schedule.
Q. Can you provide an estimate over the phone?
A. Each job is unique in some way. This is why we provide free evaluations to ensure prices quoted are accurate and complete with no surprises.
Q. Once decided, how long will it take to schedule the work?
A. Most of our work can be scheduled within 7 – 10 days.
Q. Do you require deposits?
A. No, we will not ask for any deposits for work scheduled. We will only ask that you pay for services after completion.
Q. What type of cleaner is used?
A. The Grout Medic uses a low pressure / hot water system to clean your grout. The vapor system will heat water to 320 degrees cleaning your grout with vapor technology using tap water leaving your grout in a PH neutral state.
Q. Do you use chemical cleaners?
A. Some cleaning situations require pre-treatment using a chemical cleaner. The Grout Medic cleaner contains no acid or bleach as these ingredients can do long term damage to your grout. The solution is then followed by our vapor technology removing the discoloration and any chemical residue from the grout joint.
Q. Why use grout cleaner and vapor cleaning?
A. The vapor cleaning process eliminates the cleaner from the pores of the joint leaving it in a PH neutral state.
Q. Why not just scrub the grout with a brush and mop it clean?
A. The mopping of excess cleaner is not completely absorbed leaving the cleaner in the pores of the grout. The cleaner will disrupt the PH level of the floor creating a dirt magnet after completion.
Q. Do you use a truck mounted cleaning machine?
A. No, grout rated to withstand pressure up to 600 - 800psi. The truck mounted equipment generates pressure between 1500 – 3000 psi. The amount of pressure generated will create small cracks in the joint along with exploiting existing cracks.
Q. Can I simply grout over the existing grout?
A. Grout adheres to the bisque (raw edge) of the grout joint. The existing grout must be removed to prevent the freshly applied grout from flaking or chipping.
Q. Is it possible to clean the grout in my shower?
A. Typical shower / tub grout joints contain non-sanded grout. This grout does not contain pores meaning the grout itself is stained rather versus discoloration caused by dirt trapped in pores.
Q. How long will I be without my shower?
A. The re-grouting procedure will take 4 – 5 hours to complete. The grout and caulk will require a cure time of approximately 24 hours allowing you the use of your shower the next day.
Q. How long will the grout last?
A. The Grout Medic uses a polymer-fortified grout to help prevent shrinkage and future discoloration. The re-grout procedure should last 15 – 20 years providing a PH neutral cleaner is used for maintenance cleaning.

When regrouting does the existing grout need to be removed?
Regrouting tiles requires removing existing grout. Grout adheres to the raw edge or bisque of the tile which requires the old grout to be removed prior to the new grout being applied. When we regrout installations using non-sanded grout you can expect it to last 15-20 years with proper maintenance before the product will begin to break down.
