Radon Mitigation Systems remove the high concentration levels of radon from inside homes and buildings.
When installed correctly, the systems create a safe breathing zone in living spaces.
Installation Performed the Right Way
If your Northfield home contains elevated levels of radon gas, you will need to have a mitigation system installed to remove the dangerous gas from your home.
It's crucial to hire a licensed radon mitigation company to install your system. Regulations and rules ensure the proper installation of the system and that the radon does not have a chance to re-enter your home once eliminated.
1. When installing a radon mitigation system, the first step is for the specialist to find a quality suction point. To determine a quality suction point, the specialist will check for easy access, whether or not the location is aesthetically pleasing, and where the best outcome for success will be.
2. When the suction point has been located, the specialist will drill a 5" hole in the sub-slab of the basement. This hole will be for the deployment of the mitigation system.
The technician will need to decide how large to make the "communication pit." To help with this decision, they will need to sample the soil and complete a substrate material analysis.
Determining the size of the communication pit is a vital step for the overall outcome of the installation. If the pit is dug too small, there will not be enough suction to suck the gas from beneath the sub-slab of the home.
3. Next, the technician will decide the most optimal location for the discharge point to exhaust the gas from the house.
It's important not to give the gas a chance to re-enter the home.
4. After the discharge point has been located; the technicians will begin the pipe fitting process. The pipe base that goes directly into the ground will need to be sealed.
Your mitigation specialist can do this by using a backer rod to fill the spatial gap and finished with industrial-grade caulk.
5. Your mitigation technician will decide the pipe pathway for exiting the home when the piping is set. A chemical welding agent will then connect the PVC piping to ensure no leaks in the piping system.
6. Lastly, your Radon Eliminator mitigation specialist can install the ventilation fan along with the pip pathway. The exhaust fan can either be connected to the outside of the home. In some situations, your specialist can place it inside the garage attic.
The ventilation fan is used to draw the radon from beneath the sub-slab of the basement through the piping system and out into the atmosphere.
After your system has been installed and all of the cracks and intrusion points have been sealed, the technician will complete one last check and leave a radon continuous monitoring test in the basement of your home for 72 hours.
This test is left to ensure that the system does its job and eliminates the radon from your home.
When the technician comes back to get the test, you will be given a copy of the final test results.
