Radon is a cancer-causing Radioactive gas. You can’t see smell or taste radon. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the USA and contributes to an estimated 21,000 deaths a year.
The EPA recommends that all homes should be tested. 1 out of 15 houses in the United States is estimated to have elevated radon levels (above 4 pCi/L or more). Homes next to each other can have significantly different radon levels. Learn more the dangers of radon from the EPA.
A qualified radon contractor will provide a wide variety of radon abatement options. If radon is detected I will help the owner of the property consider which on is right for their needs. This may include a simple system that helps vent the gas from the basement of the structure.
Radon reduction systems work. Some systems can reduce radon levels by up to 99%. Most homes can be fixed for about the same cost as other common homes repairs. Has your home been tested?
Testing is affordable, quick and non-invasive. A simple two day test can identify the level of radon in your home. My state-of-the-art testing equipment is accurate and dependable. We use a CRM device that can detect any abnormal swings during the test period. An accurate and detailed report is provided when testing is finished.
The radon mitigation strategy may also include a more elaborate system that requires the installation of various kinds of fans and other mechanical systems that work together to make sure that the goal of radon remediation is accomplished. Some situations may only require sealing or passive radon mitigation techniques because the gas levels are below the EPA’s action level. In these cases basic foundation maintenance is sufficient. The owner will need to consider the various kind of radon mitigation options.
