Guardian Energy Technologies, Inc. is an insulation materials company which sells insulation kits to homeowners and contractors, including closed-cell spray foam with antimicrobial applications. This company serves downtown Chicago and the surrounding areas, including Des Plaines, Skokie, Evanston, Arlington Heights, Rolling Meadows, Franklin Park, Niles, Schiller Park, Elmwood Park, Elmhurst Park, Brookfield, Winnetka, Wilmette, Oak Park, Cicero, Berwyn, Oak Lawn, Burbank, Bridgeview, Elk Grove Village, Bensenville, Itasca, Addison, Elmhurst, Bellwood, Maywood, Melrose Park, and Riverside. The company sells spray foam insulation which has been colored so that when it has been properly mixed within the nozzle, it sprays green, ensuring the homeowner that it is applying correctly. The company's products are anti-microbial and resist moisture in order to create a vapor barrier. They can be combined with other insulation products, such as fiberglass or cellulose, to create a hybrid method of insulation, and the inhabitants do not need to vacate the home for days in order to have it insulated, as particulates settle within several hours.
