Install a Radon Mitigation System 

When you find out that your home contains radon levels that are at 4.0 piC/L or higher, the best thing you can do is contact a licensed Radon Mitigation company to install a removal system. 

Radon removal systems are referred to as Radon Mitigation systems. 

Radon Mitigation systems are designed to remove high concentration levels of radon from the home and out into the atmosphere. 

Your first step after discovering radon in your home is to contact a licensed specialist. When you speak with a radon professional they will be able to walk you through the installation process and provide you with a free quote for installation. 

There are several ways for a mitigation system to be installed, and it will be up to the specialist to determine which way will be the best option for your home, and up-to-code with The Ohio Department of Health. 

You should not try to install a radon mitigation system on your own. Hiring a licensed company is the only way to know that your system is installed properly, and if you try to sell your home and your system is not installed by a licensed professional, you will have to rip the whole system down and pay for a new one before you will be able to see your home. 

After you speak with a licensed professional, you can schedule a time for the installation to be complete. 

Radon mitigation systems can be installed in one day, between 3-5 hours depending on the layout of the home and how complex the system needs to be. 

When the system is completed, the licensed technician will leave a radon test in the home for 72 hours collecting data. The test that the technician will leave is called a Radon Continuous Monitoring unit. This means the radon levels in the home will be measured from the time the test is turned on until it is picked up. 

A Post-Mitigation Radon Test is very important to ensure that the radon system has been installed properly and that the concentration levels of radon have been reduced below the EPA recommended action level.
