Using state-of-the-art cleaning products and a revolutionary restorative process, Provive professionally revives and permanently protects finishes on interior and exterior surfaces of transportation vehicles, commercial buildings, and public structures.

Transportation & Transit

Buses

A bonded permanent treatment for seat backs, floors, tables, lavatories, and interior and exterior walls.

Whether you own a small, private fleet of school buses, or you’re responsible for hundreds of buses for a municipal transit authority, your primary goal is to keep the maximum number of buses in service at all times. Unfortunately, in addition to mechanical issues, buses are regularly taken out of service for extensive cleaning. Graffiti, persistent soiling, and wear & tear inside and out can result in excessive time out of the regular service rotation and lead to costly maintenance bills. Provive’s transit revitalization service applies a new bonded permanent treatment to almost any non-porous surface such as seat backs, floors, tables, lavatories, and interior or exterior walls.

OTHER BENEFITS
  • The creation of a tough, durable surface that offers complete protection against atmospheric damage such as salt and sand, corrosion, standard wear and tear, and UV degradation. Significantly reduces maintenance and cleaning costs by making graffiti, greases, oil, brake dust, and soot quick and easy to clean.
  • Eco-Friendly: Eliminates the need for hazardous cleaners.
  • Improved Perception Scores: Reinvigorate existing faded paint, leaving a 90% gloss finish without altering the natural appearance of the surface below, meaning graphics maintain readability/legibility.
  • UV Protection: Will not fade or chalk, resulting in improved brand appearance and perception wherever applied.
  • Long-term Cleanliness and Graffiti Protection: Provive’s permanent protective treatment not only leaves a high-gloss finish, it also leaves a completely non-porous protective surface that bonds at the molecular level to smooth out the peaks and cracks where dirt can settle. This leaves an easy-to-clean surface that also has the unique property of preventing graffiti adhesion.
  • Increased ROI: Future cleaning—even graffiti, tags, scuff marks, and gum—requires dramatically less out-of-service cleaning time so more in-service cleaning can be done.
  • Meets or exceeds ASTM and DIN standards.

Trains & Subways

Reduce out-of-service cleaning and maintenance costs

Of all the modes of public transit, trains and subways are the hardest to keep clean. From graffiti in the lavatories to iron brake dust and carbon staining, the cost in time out of service and the money to pay for cleaning services is one of the most expensive components of running a transit system.

Provive cleans, restores and protects the interior and exterior surfaces of trains such as lavatories, seatbacks, tables, floors, walls and railings using the same products and processes London Transit uses to reduce their cleaning and maintenance costs by millions of pounds.

What’s the cost of graffiti destruction? Provive’s unique products and processes are ideally suited to remove and permanently protect against interior and exterior graffiti through the application of a nonsacraficial coating designed to repell most forms of graffiti and tags.

  • Eradicate shadowing/ghosting

Streetcars

Graffiti, iron brake dust, carbon staining & dirt  — Provive cleans, restores and protects it all

Magnets for graffiti artists and thugs, streetcars are highly susceptible to graffiti and tag attacks. In addition, iron brake dust, carbon staining, and environmental dirt and soiling can result in a transit system that looks prematurely old. Using the same products and service processes that London Transit uses to reduce their cleaning and maintenance costs by millions of pounds, Provive cleans, restores, and protects the seat backs, floors, and ceilings, as well as exterior surfaces of streetcars.

OTHER BENEFITS

  • Reduce Cleaning Costs: Use less chamicals and time to clean.

Boats and Yachts

Professionally restoring and permanently protecting exterior and interior surfaces

Cleaning, buffing, and polishing a boat is a lot of work for results that last a fraction of the regular boating season. Most conscientious boaters pay for this service every year. But what if you could do it once and never have to think of it again? Provive’s patented restorative process and marine products are designed to be applied only once. And they’re guaranteed to make your boat look as good as — if not better than — new.

Tractor Trailers & Tankers

Provive’s graffiti removal and permanent protection service

At a cost similar to a small family home, most tractor-trailers are considered a major asset. But unlike most homes, these assets are exposed to a great deal of punishment that results in poor aesthetics and premature decreased value. Not to be confused with traditional mobile cleaning services, Provive’s fleet restoration and protection services are geared toward companies that want to protect their fleet from the damaging effects of the road and nature, extend the use of their assets, and ensure curb appeal stays above the curve.

benefits
  • Paint Restoration: Revitalize the look of a truck or trailer by bringing back the original colour and sealing it in with a durable patented clear coat guaranteed not to fade or chalk over years of use.
  • Increased Resale Value: By bringing a rig to its original look and providing a protective seal that will last for years, the resale values go up.
  • Reduced Cleaning Time and Costs: Due to the antistatic nature of the end product, cleaning times are substantially reduced and the need to use expensive and environmentally harsh chemicals is virtually eliminated.
  • Reduce Corrosion: Wrapping a vehicle or trailer in a clear cocoon minimizes direct contact with corrosive particulates, which results in less salt damage and exposure to other harmful chemicals.
  • Long-term Cleanliness and Graffiti Protection: Provive’s permanent protective treatment not only leaves a high-gloss finish, it also leaves a completely non-porous protective surface that bonds at the molecular level to smooth out the peaks and cracks where dirt can settle. This leaves an easy-to-clean surface that also has the unique property of preventing graffiti adhesion.
  • Both the Canadian Food Inspection Agency Sanitation Compliance and the United States Sanitary Food Transportation Act are tightening regulations, making it more difficult to guarantee compliance. Provive’s state-of-the-art food-grade products and processes seal the interior of trailers making cleaning and sanitizing walls, ceilings, and floors between jobs seem almost effortless. The resulting coating is resistant to all forms of dirt, stains, mold and bacteria. A simple hose-down without harsh chemicals means a dramatic reduction in cost and time and increased compliance to heavy constraints.

Tanker Trailers

Provive works exceptionally well with all forms of stainless steel. Without changing the appearance of the trailer, Provive’s stainless steel treatment leaves the surface looking brand new while permanently protecting it from harsh road condition. Dirt, salt, and other chemical residuals, like brake and iron dust, wipe off effortlessly. And because Provive only uses food-grade products in its applications, they can also be used to treat the inside of tankers, eliminating the need for harsh cleaning chemicals and making cleaning between hauls easier, faster, and environmentally safer.

Fleet Services

Professionally restoring and permanently protecting exterior and interior surfaces

Unlike other companies that may specialize in graffiti removal, paint restoration, or general cleaning services for buses, trucks, and trains, Provive’s complete line of services and products are designed to address all fleet management issues: cleaning, renewal, and permanent protection of all interior or exterior surfaces for fleets big or small. Hiring one company to maximize the value of all your fleet vehicles is convenient. It’s also good business! Don’t play the blame-game with different suppliers. Provive manages the entire process from start to finish—we take complete ownership and responsibility for our results.

Trucks, trailers, buses, or specialty vehicles, Provive provides your fleet with patented protection that reduces cleaning costs and ensures greater longevity and higher return on asset investments.

Planes

A hard antistatic surface that reduces skin friction for better fuel economy and performance.

Skin friction can result in poor performance and inefficient fuel economy. Regular maintenance and cleaning helps to reduce skin friction but this is time-consuming and sometimes logistically difficult. Provive’s patented Aviation products and application services result in a surface that not only makes your plane look new, it keeps it looking that way over a very long time. And because the end result leaves an exceptionally hard antistatic surface, bugs don’t stick to it, leading the way to a naturally clean and more efficiently-run plane.

benefits
  • Light Weight: The process adds a 2-micron thin self-leveling layer on top of the existing surface. This roughly translates to about a pound of extra weight depending on the size of the plane.
  • Self-leveling: The aviation coating creates a surface that has less friction, paving the way to higher fuel efficiency.
RECREATIONAL VEHICLES

RV’s look great brand new but eventually the elements of nature start to take their toll. Paint fades from sun exposure and keeping it clean can be time-intensive. But what if you could take advantage of a service that completely revives your RV so it looks as good as new? And what if that service kept it that way for years without having to polish it on a regular basis? Or better yet, what would be the value of this service for a new motorhome, bus, or trailer so it never fades—extending the life of your vacation home? Provive’s patented restorative process and marine products are designed to be applied once! And they’re guaranteed to make your RV look as good as — if not better than — new.

Other Benefits

  • Dirt and Road Salt Repellant: Residual antistatic coating leaves your RV looking like-new longer.
  • Sun Damage and Fade Protection: Painted or gel coat surfaces no longer fade in the sun so your RV is guaranteed to look like new for many years to come.
  • Chip Prevention: Provive’s patented surface coating is hard as glass and helps prevent paint damage from stone chips.
  • Good for the Environment: No need for harsh cleaning chemicals because nothing sticks to the surface.
  • Stain Repellent: Brake dust, road tar, oil, or bug residual can’t stain applied surfaces.
  • Better Resale Value: When an RV shines, it naturally sells for more money.
  • Spend more time enjoying your RV than cleaning it: Most applications only require a garden hose and a rag.

Architecture

Commercial Exterior

Provive’s graffiti removal and permanent protection service

As a building owner or operator, graffiti is frustrating. You have an attractive canvas and lawless people think they have an open invitation to desecrate your property. You then have to pay to remove tags and unwanted graffiti or worse yet pay fines from municipal authorities for something that is completely out of your control — salt in the wound. And if your surface is in a desirable location, chances are it will be hit again as soon as you have it removed. It’s just not fair!

We at Provive understand your frustration. That’s why we have developed a graffiti removal and protection service that is guaranteed to remove most acts of graffiti, eradicate any lingering ghosting, and treat the surface with a patented non-sacrificial permanent anti-graffiti coating that will eliminate the need for future costly cleanups. When permanently treated, future acts of graffiti and tagging will simply wipe off with water, a mild detergent, and a brush.

Interior Applications

A permanent surface barrier that’s easy to clean.

Nothing upsets tenants more than paying huge monthly leases only to find graffiti covering the walls and stalls of the washrooms or on corridors and hallways. Provive’s graffiti removal and protection services are not limited to the exterior walls. We extend this service to include interior spaces as well.

Once completed, Provive-treated walls and stalls are not immune to new graffiti but the treatment includes a non-sacrificial coating. This permanent surface barrier can be easily cleaned by non-professionals using basic cleaning techniques. Often mild soap, water, a rag and a brush will be all that is necessary to wipe away graffiti.

Private Property

Wash away graffiti with soap and water in minutes. 

Provive anti-graffiti programs are also available for private residences. Whether it’s a strategically-located brick wall or steel fence, Provive technicians can safely remove any and all signs of graffiti and leave an unobtrusive permanent anti-graffiti coating that will allow homeowners to wash off new graffiti in minutes with soap and water. You no longer have to shell out buckets of money every time someone abuses your private property.

Business Improvement Areas

Neighbourhood anti-graffiti program: graffiti washes off in minutes so graffiti artists go somewhere else.

It’s not true. Misery doesn’t always like company. But in the case of defending a business district against the pitfalls of graffiti and tags, the collective can work together to make the area less attractive to graffiti artists and more attractive to tourists and consumers. Graffiti artists will stop visiting an area if they know their work is only temporary. They’ll move on to a new canvas. If that canvas is the next building over, the problem doesn’t go away. But if the entire business district addresses the problem head-on, the culprit will move on permanently to an entirely different location. Provive’s permanent BIA anti-graffiti program works best when neighbouring businesses band together to make the entire area less of a target.

benefits
  • Reduced Cleaning Times and Costs: Normal dirt and stains don’t stick to surfaces treated by Provive. Cleaning times are dramatically reduced.

Public Infrastructure

Bridges and Overpasses

Provive’s anti-graffiti solutions reclaim public spaces 

Nothing ruins the image of a town, city, or street like the sight of unwanted graffiti and tags. As private owners tackle the graffiti blight so too are local governments, just on a much grander scale. Provive’s anti-graffiti solutions are also available for public areas like parks and municipal buildings. Regardless of the medium, Provive technicians are uniquely qualified to remove any and all graffiti and tags and apply a non-sacrificial anti-graffiti coating that will allow for easy cleanup for future attacks. Over time, this will dramatically reduce the cost of eradicating graffiti and tags from the community.

Public Utilities

Provive’s anti-graffiti program

Utility boxes are graffiti and tag magnets. No sooner is the graffiti removed or painted over and it’s  back — an endless cycle that costs utility companies millions of dollars a year and results in denigration of otherwise beautiful towns and cities. Many utility operators and public service box owners are hesitant to react swiftly, knowing that graffiti is a repeat offence. They are motivated to wait before they act even though it’s been proven that an rapid response to graffiti removal lessens its repetiton.

Provive’s utility box anti-graffiti program for mail boxes, electrical boxes, phone company PBX boxes, light signal boxes, and hundreds of other exposed public applications is designed to remove unwanted graffiti and treat the surface with a permanent non-sacraficial coating that resists all future forms of graffiti. Using soap and water or Provive’s pre-packaged graffiti wipes, future graffiti will come off effortlessly.  Provive’s anti-graffiti program is ideally suited to facilitate a proactive approach to permanent graffiti removal. It’s time to fight back against graffiti!

GRAFFITI REMOVAL ARMY

Imagine turning your workforce of technicians, mail carriers or any other employees that have regular access to public utility boxes, into a massive graffiti-removal army, equipped with simple graffiti-removal wipes in their toolboxes or mail bags. Think of the cost savings! Think of the frustration for those who spent time tagging the box only to have it removed before anyone saw it.

OTHER BENEFITS
  • Dramatically reduce the need for third party graffiti removal services.
  • Reduced Cleaning Times and Costs: Normal dirt and stains don’t stick to surfaces treated by Provive. Cleaning times are dramatically reduced.
  • Permanent protection.
  • Total protection against fly poster attack.

Municipal Assets

Non-destructive coatings preserve cultural monuments.

In addition to large infrastructure like bridges and overpasses, municipalities are also faced with protecting more sensitive assets like statues, sculptures, and other cultural attractions. Provive technicians are uniquely qualified to remove all types of graffiti from culturally-sensitive objects. If desired, the technician can apply a permanent non-destructive coating on the asset so future desecrations can be easily removed without harmful chemicals that may harm the statue or monument over time.

  • Eco-Friendly: All products used by Provive are environmentally-friendly and treated surfaces can be cleaned using water and mild detergents, eliminating the need for harsh chemical cleaners.
