Do you have a Radon Gas problem in your Eastlake, Ohio home?
If you had a radon test with elevated levels, you must contact a licensed professional to install a Radon Mitigation System.
A mitigation system aims to reduce the high concentration levels of radon gas inside the breathing space of homes and buildings.
Installation Performed the Right Way
Having a Radon Mitigation system installed in your home cannot be done by just anyone. Specific regulations need following to ensure the effective elimination of the gas.
It's essential to hire a licensed company with experience with the installation process to ensure that your system is installed correctly and up-to-code.
1. Radon Eliminator begins the removal process by finding a quality suction point that is easily accessible and has the best outcome for the system's success.
2. When the suction point is found, the technician will drill a 5" hole into the sub-slab of the basement. This hole or "communication pit" will be used to deploy the system.
The dimensions need to be correct on the communication pit, or the system may not have enough pull to remove the gas from the house.
3. Next, the specialist will locate the discharge point of the system. This is where the gas will be exhausted from the house. The specialist must choose the right location. This way, the gas does not have a chance to re-enter the home.
4. Once the discharge point is found, the contractor will begin the pipe fitting process. This process includes sealing the pipe base that goes directly into the ground.
This is done by using a backer rod to fill the spatial gap and finish with an industrial-grade caulk.
5. After the piping is placed, your radon mitigation specialist must choose the best pathway.
They will use a chemical welding agent to connect the PVC piping and ensure no leaks in the piping system.
6. The last step is for the ventilation fan to be placed along with the pipe pathway. Your mitigation specialist can attach the fan to the outside of the home or, in some cases, inside the garage attic.
The ventilation fan is used to pull the radon from beneath the home, up through the pipe pathway, and out into the atmosphere, making your home safe and the air breathable.
The final step in the installation process is for the technician to leave a radon test in the basement for 72 hours.
The test is left to see if the system was installed correctly and reduced radon levels.
If, for some reason, the levels have not been reduced below the EPA recommended action level of a 4.0, our team will come back and do whatever needs to be done at no additional cost to you.
