A radon mitigation system is installed in homes and buildings to safely reduce the concentration levels of radon gas inside the breathing zones of occupied buildings.
Installation Performed the Right Way
When we initially come to your home to test for radon, we will complete an inspection to look for any possible intrusion points for radon gas. This inspection helps us develop a plan of action based upon your home to mitigate the radon in the most efficient way possible.
The first step to installing a radon mitigation system is to find a quality suction point that allows easy access, is aesthetically pleasing and will provide the best outcome for success.
Once the suction point has been located, the specialists will drill a 5" hole into the sub-slab of the basement to deploy the mitigation system.
When the hole is complete, the technician will decide how large the "communication pit" needs to be based upon the soil sample and substrate material analysis. This step is important because having the correct dimensions will create the proper vehicle to pull the air from beneath the basement slab.
When the pit is dug, the specialist will analyze a proper discharge point to exhaust the gas outside the home.
These steps help ensure the radon does not have the chance to re-enter the home due to a poorly routed mitigation system.
Once the discharge point has been identified, the next step is the pipe fitting process. The process begins with sealing the pipe base that goes directly into the ground. Sealing is done using a backer rod to fill the spatial gap and finished with an industrial-grade caulk.
When the pipe is set, the mitigation expert will choose the pathway it needs to take through the house. The team will then connect the PVC pipes with a chemical welding agent to secure a proper fill and ensure no leaks in the piping system.
Lastly, your Radon Eliminator mitigation specialist will install the ventilation fan along the pipe pathway. Installing the exhaust fan in the correct location is important to ensure the fan has enough suction to pull the gas from underneath the basement's foundation and up through the piping system all the way out of the home.
Once the radon mitigation installation is complete, the technician will leave a radon testing monitor for 72 hours to ensure the system is working properly.
If, for some reason, the radon levels in your home have not been reduced below the EPA recommended action level, the Radon Eliminator team will return and do whatever they need to reduce the levels at no additional cost to you.
If your home contains elevated levels of radon gas, do not wait to contact Radon Eliminator to install a mitigation system to remove the harmful gas from your home.
