According to the EPA, radon causes over 21,000 deaths every year in the United States (more than drunk driving incidents, drowning, and fires). What's most difficult about radon is that it hides in the home, invisible and odorless. Having your home tested for radon is a crucial part of every responsible homeowners maintenance plan. Radon testing is particularily important when considering the purchase of a new home.
Radon Testing & Mitigation
The Services We Offer to You Include:
- Radon Testing
We perform radon testing inside the home to confirm the concentration levels of radon in the home. In order to obtain the most accurate test, we measure radon levels at the lowest livable area of the home, while the home is under closed house conditions. We then use those readings to determine the home's average level.
- Radon MitigationIf the home is found to have radon levels at, or higher than what is acceptable, there are steps we can take to maintain the safety inside the home. We offer a full suite of radon mitigation techniques that can dramatically reduce the presence of radon.
How it Works
A mitigation system is a powered device that draws the air from below the basement slab of a home and exhausts it to the exterior of the home. A sub-slab depressurization system is the most common type. Installation is typically one of two ways:
- Exterior (through the exterior wall; fan on outside of the home)
- Interior (vent routed through the home and the fan installed in the attic of the home)
