Radon Mitigation Systems Work.
Over time, exposure to radon can cause lung cancer. Radon causes about 21,000 lung cancer deaths each year in the U.S. It is the second leading cause of lung cancer, after tobacco smoking. People who smoke have an even higher risk of lung cancer from radon exposure than people who don’t smoke.
Radon reduction systems work. Some radon reduction systems can reduce radon levels in your home by up to 99 percent. Most homes can be fixed for about the same cost as other common home repairs. Your costs may vary depending on the size and design of your home and which radon reduction methods are needed.
You Have Radon. Now What?
If your home comes back positive for radon, don’t stress! Call us to set up an appointment so we can determine the easiest, most cost-effective solution to rid radon from your home.
Radon can easily be removed from your home without tearing down walls, long construction or disrupting your life. Mitigation systems are usually installed within a day and leave no mess.
Why Do They Work?
Radon gas enters a home through its foundation. This is the area where your radon reduction system would be installed. A series of pipes are used to connect the foundation to a fan located outside of the home. This technique is referred to as sub-slab depressurization. It is extremely effective for radon mitigation in a home because almost all radon gas seeps in from the foundation. By pulling this dangerous gas out from under the foundation, we can prevent it from accumulating high levels of gas in a home.
