Does your Jackson, OH home contain elevated levels of Radon Gas?
If your home is plagued with cancer-causing gas, you will need to contact a licensed professional to install a removal system.
Radon removal systems, also known as Mitigation Systems, are designed to reduce radon concentration levels inside the living spaces of homes and buildings.
Installation Performed the Right Way
Installing a Radon Mitigation System should only be done by a licensed professional.
Some codes and regulations need to be followed to ensure that the gas is actually being extracted from the home.
The Team at Radon Eliminator are licensed with The Ohio Department of Health and will complete the installation by doing the following:
1. The mitigation process begins by locating a suction point that is easy to access and has the best outcome for the system's success.
2. Once the suction point is located, the technician will drill a 5" hole into the sub-slab of the basement. Your Radon Mitigation specialist will use this hole for the deployment of the system.
The dimensions of the hole need to be correct, or the system may not have enough strength to remove the gas from the house.
3. The specialist will then locate the discharge point of the system. The discharge point is where the gas is exhausted from the house.
Your Radon mitigation specialist must choose the right location. The proper location ensures that the gas does not have a chance to re-enter the home once it has been eliminated.
4. Once the discharge point is found, the contractor can begin the pipe fitting process.
This process includes sealing the pipe base that goes directly into the ground using a backer rod to fill the spatial gap and finish with industrial-grade caulk.
5. After the piping is in place, your Radon Eliminator mitigation specialist will determine the pipe pathway.
Your Radon Eliminator mitigation technician will use a chemical welding agent to connect the PVC piping, and the technician will make sure there are no leaks in the piping system.
6. The last step of the installation process is for the ventilation fan to be placed along with the pipe pathway. Your technician can connect the exhaust fan to the outside of the home or, in some cases, inside the garage attic.
The ventilation fan is the only electrical component and 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.
After the installation is complete, one of the specialists will leave a radon continuous monitoring unit in the home's basement to collect data for 72 hours.
When they come back to collect the test, they will tell you what the radon levels are in the home.
This test is critical. It is the only way to know for sure if the installation has been a success.
If for some reason, the test comes back and the radon levels have not been reduced, the Radon Eliminator technicians will return and do whatever needs to be done, at no additional cost to you, to make sure that the levels are reduced.

I never thought that we were a radon impacted home. We lived here for 16 years prior to accidentally discovering this issue. I called Radon Eliminator after some research on-line. Cedric called me back same day and had official testing to our home hours later. Reports were issued same day as testing was completed both prior and post mitigation. Cedric and the installation team were prompt, professional, and always answered all of our questions. They all walked us through the process from start to finish and did a great job. Our levels fell from 32 to 1.8 in a matter of days. Only 5 days lapsed from discovering the problem, confirming our radon level with EPA certified test, installation and resolution of the issue. We are all resting much better with this new peace of mind.
