Why Do You Have a Radon Problem?
The three main factors in determining whether you have some radon at home, or a proper radon problem, are:
- The potency of the radon
- The speed in which it’s entering
- Your home’s ventilation

A Quick Guide on Radon
- It is produced by uranium decay, which may be around the rocks or soil near your house
- It is an odorless and tasteless noble gas (remember those from chemistry class?)
- As far its cancer-causing potential, it is as high as tobacco
- Estimates show up to 21,000 people die every year from problems stemming from chronic radon exposure
- In fact, low-level and chronic radon inspection is more dangerous than isolated periods of high exposure
- Once thought incredibly rare, reports of radon issues come from all states.
- Homes with high crawl spaces tend to have a higher risk of radon issues
- Home radon concentrations can increase tenfold during the winter
- Nationwide, the threshold in which radon levels merit a mitigation system is 4pCi/L
Those are just a few reasons why you shouldn’t wait for radon gas mitigation.
What Does A Radon Gas Mitigation System Do?
The idea behind a mitigation system is to catch this gas and expel it out of your house. Soil gases are first collected through special PVC pipes. Then, they are pushed upwards in the building and onto the top level — where a radon depressurization vent will force it out of the house.
When it comes to radon, we don’t play nice: we are a full-service radon mitigation contractor. We can help you every step of the way, from the initial inspection to the installation, maintenance, and repairs for your mitigation system.
Make sure to ask for our basement waterproofing solutions, and about the best way to keep your crawl spaces radon-free. If you live in or own an apartment building, we are licensed to provide multifamily radon mitigation. Keep in mind that, according to HUD Radon policy guidelines, you must get a certified radon mitigation professional in any multifamily building where the concentration exceeds 4 picocuries (pCi/L).
