What are the treatment steps in removing radon from my home?
The goal of radon mitigation is to effectively move air from underneath the home’s foundation and exhaust it outside. Basements are the most prevalent, but crawl spaces and cement slabs also have high radon activity and that’s where mitigation installation takes place. We offer four systems:
- Exterior: As the most common system, a suction point is placed into the concrete floor and fan is installed on the exterior, extended far enough to avoid radon reentering
- Passive: This is commonly used in newer homes as an exhaust has already been installed during the construction process. However, the installation does not typically create the right air flow, and so we must extend off of it. This is a great option for those who, for cosmetic reasons, do not want a fan and exhaust pipe visible on the home exterior.
- Interior: This option combines the exterior and passive systems for those who do not want an exterior fan but did not have the passive system installed in their home.
- HRV: When all other options are unavailable, we recommend this system. This is typically only installed in older homes that still have root cellars or dirt floors. A fresh air intake and an exhaust port are installed, and more installations may occur in larger areas, making it the most expensive option.
Each system includes a post-mitigation test.
Mitigations options will vary as no two homes are alike. To learn more about each system and what option would work best in your home, contact us today. We fully guarantee our systems to maintain radon levels BELOW the EPA recommended level for 5 years after installation date. At Pure Air Environmental, we work hard to ensure the satisfaction of our clients while making sure their family and homes are safe. To us, every breath matters.
