Getting Rid of Radon…
Radon is a radioactive, colorless, odorless, tasteless gas – it is also the second most important cause of lung cancer after smoking. It comes from the natural decay of uranium, an element present in almost all soil types. Typically, radon moves up from the soil to the air above, and into your home through cracks, gaps, and other openings found in floors and walls.
In most cases, radon is effectively remediated through an active “sub-slab depressurization” system. Here is how a sub-slab depressurization system works:
- FREE radon testing
- A hole is core drilled into your basement slab and a 4″ PVC pipe is inserted and sealed
- The pipe is routed either to the attic or outside and connected to a radon fan
- Piping is extended one foot above the roof line
- Free post-testing to assure the readings are below 4 Pi/L
