A radon mitigation system removes high concentration levels of radon gas from inside a home or building.
The removal systems create a safe breathing zone inside living spaces.
Installation Performed the Right Way
A licensed removal specialist should install Radon mitigation systems in your home, ensuring that the system is installed correctly and up-to-code.
The 6 step process used by Radon Eliminator to remove elevated concentration levels of radon gas from a house includes:
1. The first step to the radon mitigation process is finding a quality suction point that will allow easy access, is aesthetically
2. When the initial suction point is located, a technician will drill a 5" hole in the sub-slab of the basement to deploy the mitigation system.
Once the hole has been dug, the specialist will decide how large to make the "communication pit." A decision based on the soil sample and substrate material analysis.
This will be an essential step because the pit's dimensions will create the vehicle that pulls the air from beneath the sub-slab of the basement and help to guide the gas out of the home.
If the pit is made too small, there will not be enough suction to draw the gas from beneath the home's foundation to the outside.
3. The contractor will need to decide the best location for the discharge point to exhaust the gas outside the home.
This helps ensure the dangerous gas is being removed from the home and does not have a chance to re-enter.
4. Once the discharge point has been identified and drilled out; the pipe fitting process can be done. The technician will begin this process by sealing the pipe base that goes directly into the ground.
The specialist can use a backer rod to fill the spatial gap and finish with industrial-grade caulk.
5. After the piping is set, the technician must choose the best pathway for the piping. They will then connect the PVC piping with a chemical welding agent to ensure no leaks in the piping system.
6. Finally, the ventilation fan, along with the pipe pathway, can be installed. The exhaust fan can either be connected to the outside of the home or, in some cases, the garage attic.
The ventilation fan is used to suck the air from underneath the basement floor up through the piping system and into the atmosphere.
Once the radon mitigation system has been installed and all the cracks and intrusion points have been sealed, the specialist will leave a radon testing monitor in the basement for 72 hours collecting data to ensure the radon levels have been reduced.
Once the test is complete, you will receive a copy of the final test results.
Suppose the system has not reduced your levels below the EPA recommended action level of 4.0. In that case, our technicians will return at no additional cost to you and make the necessary corrections to bring your levels down.
If your home contains elevated levels of radon gas, you will need to have a radon mitigation system installed for your safety and health.
