“Just because a home does not have a basement, does not mean they do not have radon. There is a major misconception that new construction with passive pipes, homes on slabs and homes with crawl spaces do not have radon. We have actually seen all three of these home types have higher radon levels than some with full basements.”
– Amanda Yeager, Radon Project Manager.
Reducing radon requires more than just sealing cracks in the foundation of a building. Caulking and sealing alone has actually proven to not be a reliable technique.
Years of extensive hands-on radon mitigation experience, research, and long-term studies of radon mitigation systems have formed proven mitigation techniques for any types of building such as homes, schools, and commercial facilities.
An active soil depressurization system is a reliable and cost-effective technique for reducing radon.
It pulls the radon gas from beneath the building and exhausts it above the roof far enough away that it will not reenter. Operating costs of this system are minor due to the low power consumption of the fan.
A plastic pipe is connected to the soil through a hole in a slab floor, a sump lid connection, or beneath a plastic sheet in a crawl space. A fan is attached inline with the pipe and continually exhausts the radon outdoors.
