GreenFire Pro Defense for Homeowners

GreenFire Pro Defense for Homeowners (DIY) is a non-toxic, mineral-based, transparent fire retardant for use on residential homes and buildings as a “fire hardening” measure to protect your property from fire. Use to treat dry grass and brush around your property to create a defensible space. Non-corrosive and non-damaging to applied surfaces.

GreenFire Pro Defense for Homeowners (DIY)

Product Overview

Like our Pro Defense for professionals, GreenFire Pro Defense for homeowners is designed for use in treating homes and buildings to prevent fire damage.

The same product that is applied by professionals during construction is also highly effective and safe for exterior “home hardening” at the beginning of fire season, and can be applied by professionals and homeowners, alike.

It can also be used to treat dry grass and brush in areas surrounding the property to create a defensible space, and to retard the ignition and spread of fire. As an added bonus, GreenFire Pro Defense has been proven effective at retarding insect attack on treated structures.

Unless leached away by a quarter inch or more of precipitation, GreenFire Pro Defense retardant minerals will continue to provide fire protection indefinitely. Non-toxic, non-carcinogenic, and 100% PFAS free.

GreenFire Pro Defense for Homeowners is available for purchase through our distributor network for do-it-yourself application. However, our certified distributors also have pros available for hire, in the event you prefer to have GreenFire Pro Defense applied to your home by an expert.
