Kirk Dunivan

Kirk's father, Duane Dunivan, founded GroutPro Systems in 1959. Duane recognized at a very young age that grout didn't maintain its color. It became his obsession to find a way to make grout maintain its beauty. As a result, he developed a special process for cleaning, recoloring and sealing grout all his own. Duane passed this same passion for restoring life to grout and tile down to Kirk who now provides this incredible service for our residential and commercial clients.
