Radon 

 

This five-letter word likely does not mean much to you. 

Regrettably, this is frequently the case. Despite its prevalence throughout the country, especially in Ohio, most people do not know the first thing about it. 

To start, we're going to reveal what radon is not. It is not something to be taken lightly. 

What is Radon? 

          Radon is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas that occurs naturally in the planet's crust. It is a result of the decay of various radioactive materials within the Earth. However, just because it is natural does not mean it isn't still perilous. Any radon exposure is dangerous, but prolonged exposure in high doses is more than dangerous: it is deadly. Over 21,000 people die every year from Radon poisoning. 

          Putting these numbers into greater perspective, radon kills more people annually than drunk drivers. It is also the number two cause of lung cancer. Literally, under smoking cigarettes, there is nothing worse for your lungs than Radon exposure. However, the scariest thing about radon is, unlike drunk driving and cigarette smoking, you may not even be aware it's killing you.

         The problem with radon is that it is insidious, and it is very good at doing what gas does. It's very good at seeping through a home's foundation, utilizing tiny flaws and microscopic cracks. To make matters worse, it can even permeate through concrete.  

        However, it would stand to reason that since radon is so good at permeating through foundations and concrete, it should be equally exceptional at escaping from a house. It makes sense, but it is altogether wrong. 

       With homes becoming more energy-efficient and more tightly sealed up, it does not allow radon the opportunity to escape. Think of a covered pot of water boiling on the stove. With nowhere for the steam to escape, it just builds up. Only in this case, instead of a potato, it's "you" radon is boiling.

Learn More about our Radon Mitigation Process

This specialized team will come in and personally inspect your home to find the best possible way to safely redirect the radon away from you and your loved ones through a series of steps, each of which is crucial for successful radon mitigation.

1. 

The first step when installing a radon mitigation system is for the technicians to find a quality suction point.

To determine a quality suction point, the specialist will check for easy access, whether or not the location is aesthetically pleasing, and where the best outcome for success will be.

2. 

The technician will drill a 5" hole at the suction point in the sub-slab of the basement. The hole deploys the mitigation system.  

The technician will need to decide how large the "communication pit" using a sample of the soil and a complete substrate material analysis.

3. 

Next, the technician will decide the best location for the discharge point to exhaust the gas from the house. 

When deciding where the discharge point should be, the technician will need to make sure they do not choose a place where the gas has the opportunity for re-entry.

4. 

 Following the determination of the suction point, the technicians can begin the pipe fitting process. The pipe base that goes directly into the ground will need sealing using a backer rod to fill the spatial gap and finished with industrial-grade caulk.

5. 

Next, your radon mitigation technician will decide the pipe pathway for exiting the home. A chemical welding agent will connect the PVC piping to ensure no leaks in the system.

6.

Lastly, Your Radon Eliminator mitigation specialist can install the ventilation fan along with the pip pathway. They can connect the exhaust fan to the outside of the home or, potentially, inside the garage attic. 

 

Following this process, they will leave behind a second radon test to see if the radon mitigation has succeeded.

It is the mission of Radon Eliminator to keep you and your family safe from the dangers of radon exposure.

If the initial mitigation attempt proved to be less than successful, they are committed to doing whatever it takes to keep you and your loved ones healthy and free from the dangers of radon.

"One of the best customer service type experiences I have ever had. Super professional organization. Great communicators always advised what the timing was and who specifically to expect. Perfect installation basically treated my home as well as they would treat their own (if not better). Solved my problem, radon measurement went from 10+ pCi/L from some prior testing to 1 pCi/L after their mitigation system was installed. Thank you!"
