We’ve teamed up with Phos-Chek to give you the best home fire retardant application available. It’s colorless, odorless, long-lasting…and it’s identical to the effective formula you’ve seen dropped from the sky during virtually every wildfire in the US.
Phos-Chek Wildfire Home Defense is the exact same firefighting application used by the USDA Forest Service, and it comes with a laundry list of benefits:
But how long does Phos-Chek last? How do you use Phos-Chek? What exactly is Phos-Chek, anyway? Today we’ll walk you through the details of what we believe to be the #1 option for protecting your home from wildfires in Rancho Cucamonga.
Phos-Chek alters the chemical makeup of potential fuel sources. It changes the surface of cellulose-based combustible materials—like vegetation, wood, cotton, and some types of plastic—into non-flammable carbon.
By making potential fuel less combustible, Phos-Chek for home Rancho Cucamonga can slow wildfires significantly, stopping them from reaching untreated materials and spreading throughout your property.
There are loads of benefits of using Rancho Cucamonga for home Phos-Chek with FireClear:
Applying Phos-Chek is simple, especially for professionals like FireClear’s Rancho Cucamonga wildfire protection service.
Our home wildfire defense experts apply Phos-Chek around your outbuildings and home, including any areas that may be potential fuel sources for a fire.
One painless application is all you need to safeguard your home for an entire wildfire season.
Phos-Chek poses minimal risk to animals, with the US Forest Service claiming the fire retardant presents no risk at all from accidental home exposure.
In the rare event that an animal suffered adverse effects from fire retardant exposure, it’s usually after being doused by a firefighting plane—which uses far, far more Phos-Chek than your home will ever be exposed to.
Verdict? When applied by a professional, Phos-Chek for your home is safe for you, your pets, and your family.
You might be used to seeing the red fire retardant dumped from firefighting planes. This is also Phos-Chek, and the substance used to protect your home is virtually the same—except Phos-Chek for homes is totally odorless and colorless.
Once we’re finished applying Phos-Chek, your home is protected immediately. Your typical application will last throughout the fire season until being washed away by rain. Yes, just one application is all you need.
We love Phos-Chek, and we believe it’s your best option for home fire defense in Rancho Cucamonga. Here’s why.
Phos-Chek is California-approved for home fire protection. It’s totally non-toxic for wildlife, pets and humans. Phos-Chek is also completely safe for your yard, your plants, and your home. We use Phos-Chek on our own homes—and it’s virtually identical to what professional firefighters use, too.
Although Phos-Chek is virtually the same as what professionals use, there’s one major difference—FireClear’s fire retardant is totally colorless, and contains no bright dyes. It’s also odorless, meaning you won’t know Phos-Chek is there at all.
It really couldn’t be easier to get peace of mind from the next big wildfire. All you need is one simple application, and you can sleep a little easier at night knowing your home is protected throughout the entire fire season. We can even apply Phos-Chek while you’re at work!
In Rancho Cucamonga, families typically apply Phos-Chek from late spring to early summer—basically, whenever the surrounding vegetation turns brown and dry.
Applying Phos-Chek before your local plants have stopped growing for the year may necessitate additional applications to ensure 100% coverage.
Some of the main components of Phos-Chek are chemicals such as diammonium phosphate, ammonium polyphosphate, and others.
Without going into a long-winded explanation, these chemicals bind to the surface of combustible, cellulose-based fuels (wood, grass, cotton) and alter their molecular structure, making them resistant to combustion.
Phos-Chek is powerful, but it works best when combined with other fire safety measures. In addition to spraying Phos-Chek, we highly recommend that families:
Phos-Chek is at its best when applied to dry vegetation, but it can also be used on unpainted, raw wood—like fences, siding, and decks.
Phos-Chek can stain other surfaces—especially paint—and should only be used to treat such areas if your home is in an extremely fire-prone area.
Rancho Cucamonga Phos-Chek naturally washes off in the rain, but any heavy application of water will work. If you’ve accidentally spilled or sprayed Phos-Chek somewhere on your property, all you need to do is douse the area with a hose.
