Radon Mitigation is used to remove Radon concentration levels in the breathing zones of occupied homes and buildings.
Radon Eliminator; Installation the Right Way
The Radon removal process is easy but will require some work. During the initial testing phases, we will be able to look at several key points of Radon gas intrusion.
Radon can seep into homes through cracks, windows, openings in walls, sump pumps, the home's foundation, and crawl spaces. The inspector will check your home for these intrusion points before beginning the installation.
From there, we will develop a plan based on the needs of your home.
To begin the Radon Removal process, we will search for a quality suction point to allow easy access, is aesthetically pleasing, and provides the best possible outcome for success.
Once we have located the proper suction point, we can begin by drilling a 5" hole into the basement slab for the Mitigation system.
After the hole is dug out, we will decide how large the "communication pit" will be.
He will base the decision on a soil sample and substrate material analysis.
This is a critical step to determine the correct dimensions of the communication pit. This will create a pathway to draw air from beneath the slab that directs Radon out of your North Olmsted home.
If the pit is too small, it will not have enough suction to draw out the Radon.
When the pit is completed, our Radon Eliminator Experts will begin analyzing the best location for the discharge point.
It is essential to make sure that the radon removed from your home does not have the opportunity to re-enter due to a poorly routed Mitigation System.
After the discharge point has been identified and drilled out, they can begin the pipe fitting process.
They will begin by sealing the pipe base that goes directly into the ground. This will be done using a backer rod to fill in the gap and finish with an industrial-grade caulk that will not outgas.
Once the initial piping is set in place, the experts will choose the correct 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.
Next, your Radon Eliminator mitigation specialist will install the ventilation fan along the pipe pathway.
Installing the exhaust fan in the correct location is very important to ensure it has enough suction to pull the Radon Gas out of your North Olmsted home.
After filling all of the cracks and intrusion points and all of the piping is in place, the Radon Eliminator Experts will install a system that will monitor and gauge the ventilation system to ensure it is working properly.
The final step for our team is to test the pull of the system. By drilling a small pilot hole in a different section of your basement floor, they will ensure that the smoke does not get drawn down into your basement.
This will let you know if the suction is adequate for pulling Radon Gas out of your North Olmsted home.
Once the Radon Mitigation system is installed, it will run without any real maintenance or upkeep!
Now you and your family can breathe easier knowing your home is now safe from dangerous levels of Radon Gas.
