HOW WE DO WHAT WE DO

We have trade secrets, and we protect them. But the science is pretty amazing, so we like to share some of the genius behind how we bring surfaces back to life—and how we keep them that way. 

Beyond cleaning

Step one is cleaning. This is no simple task. Years of build up and harsh chemicals must be removed and repaired. The process includes:

SPECIALTY EQUIPMENT

  • surface prep and cleaning
  • with or without water recovery and recycling
  • use on most vertical or horizontal porous surfaces
  • Provive’s patented detergents, degreasers, and cleaners

STAIN AND GRAFFITI REMOVAL

To fix staining often means breaking down the original damaged surface, penetrating deep enough to access and lift stains.

REVIVE COLOURS

Once stains have been removed, colours are brought back to life (no painting required!) as is the lustre of the substrate (on non-porous surfaces).

REPAIRS

Repairs are made to damaged areas (pitting, scratches, dings, gouges, scrapes) not readily restored during standard processes.

New life is breathed into the building surface!

Lipophobic + iceophobic + hydrophobic

Our products are non-porous. They guard surfaces, preventing absorption of water, oils, and organic solvents. They also help create a barrier that sheds ice easily. 

hydrophobic: let's moisture out but not in—it breathes!

lipophobic: resists soiling

iceophobic: sheds ice. 

 

  • salt
  • graffiti
  • pollution
  • UV Rays
  • cleaning chemicals like window cleaner.
What materials do we protect?
  • Stainless steel (raw, painted, powder coated, brushed)
  • Aluminum
  • Copper
  • Brass
  • Iron
  • Nickel
  • Chrome
  • Concrete
  • Stone
  • pavers
  • brick
  • sandstone
  • limestone
Non porous and porous

Surfaces are not the same. Depending on the substrate, the approach requires a different science: 

NON POROUS

  • One application
  • minor surface penetration
  • microscopically self-levelling
  • dries to touch in one hour
  • cures in seven days
  • chemically and physically resistant
  • transparent

POROUS

  • polymer coatings absorb to a minimum of 10mm
  • polymers fill the gaps molecularly, enveloping particles, bonding chemically
  • lipophobic: Resists fats and oils
  • hydrophobic: Resists water
  • dry 1-3 hours
  • cures in 48 hours
  • practically invisible
Environmental and building wellness

Leeds and Well

Environmental waste and healthy buildings mean a lot to happy/healthy tenant retention.

Revitalization means LESS:

  • building disruption
  • material replacement
  • energy consumed
  • dust and dirt
What surfaces can be revitalized?

Exterior facades: 

  • concrete
  • stone
  • aluminum
  • stainless

Glass and mullions:

  • reflective aluminum mullions
  • flashings

Interior assets

  • elevators
  • handrails
  • polished columns
  • escalators
  • doors (kick plates, slabs, and frames)

  • walls

  • floors

Other

  • signage
  • revolving doors
  • metal canopies
  • fascia
  • sidewalks, walkways, and patios
  • lawn furniture, statues, monuments
  • control boxes and electrical hubs
Provive's protective coating

Build up and stains are cleaned, pits and scratches are repaired, and discolouration is corrected. Now it's time to protect the surface from further damage done by people and environmental elements. Hello, polymer technology! Depending on the substrate, our polymers absorb 10 mm on porous surfaces and fill the gaps on non-porous surfaces

Polymers are resistant to:

  • mold and mildew
  • water
  • corrosion
  • UV rays
  • efflorescence (when salt migrates to the surface of a porous material, forming a white coating)
  • soiling
Why is Provive better than the competition?

Epoxies, paints, and chemicals break down an unprotected surface over time. These products hide the problem for a little while, but they are masks, not solutions. 

Provive polymer protection:

  • doesn’t change the look from what was originally intended
  • won’t chip or peel
  • allows no bleed through
  • lasts longer
  • provides much more protection
    Why go with Provive?

    The benefits of using Provive are many. We are a full-service provider: We clean, repair, and protect. Other companies focus on one of these stages. With Provive, you hire one team to accomplish the big picture goal. Here are some benefits: 

    • cleaning is easier
    • less intrusive to tenants
    • less costly than replacement
    • long lasting results
    • substrate is improved – ie. anodized
    • concretes and stone are breathable 
    • fingerprint smudges are reduced on metal surfaces. 

    The biggest benefit; however, is saving money. Your problem is solved, it will be for years, and you've spent your dollars wisely. More on that below...

    Saving money with Provive

    How much will revitalization save you versus replacement? That depends on the project.

    The range can be as little as a 50% savings but as much as a 75% savings.

    The more important savings is the tenant disruption cost. In one Toronto office building case study, windows and mullions needed replacement. Instead, Provive came in, performed our magic, and the project cost savings was greater than 68% compared to replacement. The timeline was reduced and there was ZERO tenant disruption.
