Radon Mitigation systems remove high concentrations of cancer-causing gas from inside a home or building.
When installed correctly, the systems create a safe breathing zone inside homes and buildings.
Installation Performed the Right Way
When you decide to have a mitigation system installed in your Euclid home, it's essential to hire a licensed contractor to install the system for you.
Having a licensed professional install your system will ensure that it is correctly installed and up-to-code.
The Radon Eliminator Team uses the following process to install a removal system in your Euclid home:
1. The first step to installing a radon mitigation system is to find a quality suction point. When deciding where the suction point will be located, the technician will be looking to see if there is easy access, is aesthetically pleasing, and where the best outcome for success will be.
2. After the initial suction point has been located, a technician will drill a 5" hole in the sub-slab of the basement to deploy the mitigation system.
After the hole has been dug, the technician will decide how large the "communication pit" needs to be. They will base this decision on a soil sample and substrate material analysis.
The pit's dimensions will pull radon from beneath the sub-slab of the basement and out of the home.
If the pit is too small, there will not be enough suction to draw the gas from underneath the home.
3. The next step is deciding the best location for the discharge point to exhaust the gas outside the home.
This helps to make sure the gas is being removed from the home and does not have the chance to re-enter.
4. When the discharge point is identified and drilled out, the pipe fitting process is the next step. The specialist will begin the process by sealing the pipe base that goes directly into the ground.
The technician can use a back rod to fill the spatial gap and finish with an industrial-grade caulk.
5. Once the piping has been set; the specialist will choose the best pathway for the piping to exit the home. They will connect the PVC piping with a chemical welding agent. This ensures there are no leaks in the piping system.
6. Finally, the ventilation fan and the pipe pathway will be installed. Your Radon Eliminator mitigation specialist can connect the exhaust fan outside the home or, in some cases, inside the garage attic.
The ventilation fan is used to suck the radon from beneath the foundation of the home up through the piping system and into the atmosphere.
When the installation is complete and all of the cracks and intrusion points have been sealed, the specialist will leave a radon test for 72 hours to ensure that the radon levels have been reduced.
When the test is completed, you will receive a final copy of the test results to keep for your records.
If, for some reason, the levels have not been reduced below the EPA recommended action level, our team will return and do whatever needs to be done at NO additional cost to you to make sure the radon levels are reduced.
If you live in a home with elevated levels of radon gas, you will need to hire a radon mitigation contractor to install a removal system.
Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and it kills more people per year than drunk drivers.
Do not put off your installation. There is no time like the present to remove a dangerous gas from your home.
