PHOS-CHEK Wildfire Home Defense Application
Purchase and apply PHOS-CHEK® WILDFIRE HOME DEFENSE long-term fire retardant in late Spring or early Summer when the vegetation has become brown, dry, and stopped growing. When vegetative growth continues after the initial application, a reapplication of PHOS-CHEK WILDFIRE HOME DEFENSE is required. It is recommended that the homeowner keep a second batch of PHOS-CHEK WILDFIRE HOME DEFENSE on a shelf in the garage in order to re-apply again after any heavy rain.
Before applying, it is recommended that the homeowner first walk around the property in order to assess risk, potential hazards, and ground topography. Shake well before mixing and only mix with water at the time you plan to use it. When using a 20-Litre sprayer, mix the entire 2.9 Litres of concentrate with 16 Litres of water. If using a smaller sprayer, mix 1-part concentrate with 5.5 parts water. For best results, use a strainer when pouring concentrate into the water in order to capture any undissolved particles that could clog the nozzle during application.
Beginning at the foundation line of the structure, apply PHOS-CHEK WILDFIRE HOME DEFENSE on the ground around the house and all outbuildings, and onto mulch, wood, leaves, needles, brush, bushes, trees, and other natural cellulose fiber vegetation or products.
PHOS-CHEK WILDFIRE HOME DEFENSE fire retardants are also effective on unpainted raw wood surfaces, such as wood decks and fences. Please note: Application to these surfaces will leave a white residue that should be washed off as soon as possible; therefore, we recommend application to these surfaces as a last resort for extra protection during extreme wildfire conditions.
Spray PHOS-CHEK WILDFIRE HOME DEFENSE on all vegetative fuel sources close to the home and around outbuildings to avoid ignition by wind-driven embers. PHOS-CHEK WILDFIRE HOME DEFENSE flame retardant should be used in conjunction with standard vegetation management practices and Local Government’s Asset Protection Zone (APZ) recommendations.
PHOS-CHEK WILDFIRE HOME DEFENSE is a people and pet friendly long-term fire retardant. Effective immediately when applied, and will be effective for days, weeks, and months while the weather remains dry. However, exposure to heavy rainfall, PHOS-CHEK WILDFIRE HOME DEFENSE will wash away. After application, the retardant remains effective as long as it continues to adhere to the treated fuel.
Simple to apply, easy to protect everything you care about.
