About Grouthsmith Salt Lake City

Meet the owners

Mike and Stephanie Murphy became the proud owners of the first Groutsmith franchise in Utah in 2018. With several years of construction and manufacturing experience, taking the leap to invest in a family-friendly business focused on integrity and quality has been a great decision.

In our own home, we considered removing and replacing all our tile floors because the grout was so stained and difficult to clean. The Groutsmith process and products changed all that for us and we're loving our floors again!

Having the opportunity to share this option with our customers is at the center of it all.  Helping people in our community restore their tile and grout- for a fraction of the cost of replacing it- is so rewarding!

Our founder

Our Founder, Jonathan Smith is The Groutsmith. Mr. Smith has been in the construction, tile and grout business for more than 35 years. He recognized both the strong need for a service company to professionally both restore grout and restore tile as well as the need for professional products to achieve better restoration results at a lower cost. Addressing these needs, he developed restoration processes and a proprietary line of professional products that insure superior results in less time for less money. A better result in less time and for less money is the winning formula in the grout and tile restoration business. Grout and tile restoration is a specialized profession. All Groutsmiths are highly trained and certified to become experts in the Grout and Tile Restoration Industry.

Our history

In 1992, we recognized the strong demand that existed for a professional service to clean, repair and restore tile and grout floors and showers. The work, at that time, was being done primarily by handymen and amateurs. There needed to be a professional who could analyze the condition of grout and tile and then determine which repair and products were needed to professionally restore them to their original condition. Thus, the Groutsmith was born.
