Our mission is to decrease the size of wildfires, reducing the impact to families and property. We achieve this mission by selling a fire retardant that is applied at the start of wildfire season around structures. Clore Wildfire Defense offers season long protection, allowing you to keep your home resistant from fires. ³
Located in Mountain View, CA, Clore was founded by Sebastien Burkhardt and Barrett Deng who both have a passion for the wildfire industry and both want to make an impact on the environment. As a result, Clore was created with a mission of reducing the size of wildfires and minimizing their impact on families and their property. Since our launch in 2021, we have attended Diamond Challenge as a semifinalist, we have been accepted into the WIT program, and are about to launch our newest product, Clore Wildfire Defense.
Sebastien Burkhardt and Barrett Deng started Clore when they were in Boston for a visit and they even remember the date - July 21, 2021. There had been horrific wildfires in Canada and the smoke had drifted all the way to the East Coast! They started talking about the impact the fires were having on everyone and immediately wanted to help. While they didn’t create the solution at that moment, it was the day they envisioned their company.
Our products are safe and effective, and we continue to invest in research and development with testing from third-party labs.
