Radon Mitigation is the process used to remove Radon Gas concentrations in the breathing zones of occupied buildings.
Installation the Right Way
It is easy to remove Radon Gas from your home, but it requires some work. During the beginning phases of testing, we look at several key points of Radon gas intrusion. From there, we develop a plan of action based on your home's particular needs to handle the problem correctly.
The first part of the Radon Removal process is to search for a quality suction point that will allow easy access, be aesthetically pleasing, and provide the best possible outcome for success.
From here, we will begin drilling a 5" hole into the basement slab for the Mitigation system.
Once finished, our specialist will decide how large the "communication pit" needs to be. He will base his decision on a soil sample and substrate material analysis.
This step is critical to find the correct dimensions of the communication pit, which will create a proper pathway to draw air from beneath the slab that directs Radon out of the house. If the pit is too small, it will not have enough suction to draw out the Radon.
Following this, our specialist will begin analyzing the best area for a discharge point to suction the Radon Gas out of the home.
This part is essential to ensure that the radon is removed from your home does not have the opportunity to re-enter due to a poorly routed Mitigation System.
When the discharge point has been identified and drilled out, we can begin the pipe fitting process.
This process begins with sealing the pipe base that goes directly into the ground, using a backer rod to fill in the gap, and finishing with an industrial-grade caulk.
After the initial piping is set, the specialist will choose the right pipe pathway. Then, the Radon Eliminator team will connect the PVC pipes with a chemical welding agent to ensure no leaks in the piping system.
Then Your Radon Eliminator technician will put in the installation of the ventilation fan along the pipe pathway.
Installing the exhaust fan in the proper location is important to make sure it has enough suction to pull the radioactive Radon Gas from beneath your basement floor all the way out of your Lakewood home.
After the cracks and intrusion, points have been filled, and all of the piping is in place, the specialist will install a system that will monitor and gauge the ventilation system to ensure it is working properly.
After the Radon Mitigation system is installed, our Mitigation team will run post-testing to ensure that the system runs properly and in accordance with the EPA.
From then on, it will run on its own without any real maintenance or upkeep! It feels good knowing you can breathe easier in your Lakewood home that is now safe from high radioactive Radon Gas.
