CONCRETE CLEANING & SEALING
GP LLC utilizes cleaning systems that use high pressure and are able to use either hot of cold water. This equipment coupled with our rotating surface cleaners remove dirt, mildew, sediment and surface contamination without leaving any streaky lines that conventional pressure washer guns would leave. Our professional applicators use the safest and most efficient chemicals and cleaners on the market to produce the cleaning results you’re looking for. After your concrete has been cleaned, we are able to seal it with your choice of several industrial grade sealers from wet look acrylic to non-film forming siloxane’s. These sealers help protect against the damaging effects that are caused by weathering, deicing salts and surface contaminants.
Cleaning your concrete periodically with a Pressure washer or power washer and keeping it sealed with the right concrete sealers are the key components of any good maintenance program. How often you clean and reseal will largely depend on the conditions the concrete is exposed to, especially weather extremes, sunlight intensity and the amount of foot or vehicle traffic. Be sure to ask your GP LLC representative to recommend cleaning and maintenance products appropriate for your pavement type and exposure conditions.
One of the biggest trends in outdoor design today is a stamped concrete pool deck, a colored, textured and inviting area surrounding the pool that does more than provide a safe, slip-resistant deck for sunbathing and barbecuing. Inground pool decks are now given nearly as much attention as the interior design of the home. GP LLC is also able to add a slip resistant additive to the surface during application of the sealer if desired.
BRICK PAVER / INTERLOCKING BRICK CLEANING AND SEALING
GP LLC uses the most advanced products and equipment available to restore your brick pavers to “like new” condition.
We never use lower grade materials to cut cost. Lower grade product typically fails pre-maturely, turns white or peels.
Once your interlocking brick pavers have been cleaned, we return the following day to sweep sand into all paver joints, in most cases, we typically use a high grade polymeric joint stabilizing sand. We then proceed to plate compact and activate the binder. The following day we will seal your brick pavers with Techni-Seal’s Thermoplastic micro porous acrylic sealant to enhance the beauty of your pavers. If you desire a sealer which does not change the appearance of the brick we can apply a natural finish Siloxane to waterproof the surface without any visible change in appearance or color.
When unqualified contractors and residents clean & seal their brick pavers with their own the sealant, your pavers may become blushed and blotchy. This typically happens with improper cleaning, the lack of proper equipment used as well as the lack of knowledge and use of the chemicals being applied. These situations can be very expensive to correct.
Commercial and Municipal services also offered
A full cleaning, installation of polymeric sand in the joints and natural finish, wet look acrylic sealer applied to the clay and concrete brick sidewalks for municipalities throughout Illinois

How does the GP LLC Anti-Graffiti Application work?
The Graffiti Solution System (GSS) is a preventive system for graffiti control utilizing a permanent antigraffiti coating process and a simple graffiti removal process. It is designed for maintenance of a graffiti free environment where graffiti taggings are removed immediately upon discovery, leaving no evidence of graffiti. The coating can withstand repeated graffiti removals using Erasol remover without reapplication. The Erasol graffiti remover product is sprayed on by bottle and agitated over the graffiti tag. It is then hosed off by a regular garden hose. This biodegradable, nonflammable, nontoxic product has a pH of 7.5 which allows safe entrance into the ground water. Erasol can be readily degraded by typical waste water treatment plant organisms. Erasol enables graffiti removal without the need for toxic stripping agents, sand or soda blasting equipment, or high pressure, hot water washing systems. This system us easy and economical and the property remains permanently protected against future taggings.
