If your home has high concentration levels of this cancer-causing gas, you will need to contact a Licensed Radon Mitigation Company to install a removal system.
Installation Performed the Right Way
Hiring a licensed professional to install your removal system is a must. Specific regulations need following when establishing a plan, and when you hire a professional contractor, they will make sure your system is up-to-code.
1. To begin the installation process, the technician will need first to locate a quality suction point that is easy for them to access and has the best outcome for the system's success.
2. When the suction point has been located, the next step is for the technician to drill a 5" hole in the sub-slab of the basement. Your Radon Eliminator mitigation specialist will use the hole for the deployment of the mitigation system.
The specialist needs to get the dimensions of the communication pit correct. If they are wrong, there may not be enough suction to remove the gas from the house.
3. Next, the specialist will need to decide the best location for the discharge point to exhaust the gas.
When making this decision, the specialist will need to ensure that they choose a place where the gas does not have the opportunity to re-enter the home.
4. When the discharge point has been located, the technician will begin the pipe fitting process. When the pipes are set in place, they will also need to be sealed.
Using a backer rod to fill the spatial gap, this is finished with an industrial-grade caulk.
5. Once the piping has been placed, the pathway for the pipe to exit the home will be decided. A chemical welding agent will connect the PVC piping to ensure no leaks in the piping system.
6. Finally, your mitigation specialist can install the ventilation fan 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 draws the radon from beneath the basements sub-slab and into the atmosphere.
After the installation has been completed, the technician will leave a radon test inside your home for 72 hours, collecting data.
The post-mitigation test is important because it will let you and the technicians know if the system is working properly.
When the test is completed, you will know what the radon concentration levels are in your home.

Able to get out the same week to install system. Very quick installation, took about 2 hours total. System isn?t bulky and doesn?t look too bad on the side of the house. Sent me the results of the post install test the same day the detector was picked up. They were also $100-200 cheaper than the other company I spoke to.
