Radon Mitigation

Radon Mitigation

Radon mitigation is any process used to reduce radon gas concentrations in the indoor air occupied buildings, or radon from water supplies.
There are several methods we can use to lower radon levels in your home. Some techniques prevent radon from entering your home while others reduce radon levels after it has entered.  We prefer to install systems that prevent the radon from entering your home.
We will perform a visual inspection of your home and design a system that considers specific features of your home. If this inspection doesn't provide enough information, we may need to perform diagnostic tests during the initial phase of the installation to help develop the best radon reduction system for your home.
According to the EPA's "A Citizen's Guide to Radon", the method to reduce radon "primarily used is a vent pipe system and fan, which pulls radon from beneath the house and vents it to the outside", which is also called sub-slab depressurization, active soil depressurization, or soil suction. Generally indoor radon can be mitigated by sub-slab depressurization and exhausting such radon-laden air to the outdoors, away from windows and other building openings.

The following is the list of Radon Mitigation techniques listed on EPA's Website.

Arizona and Radon Gas

Radon presence in Arizona is similar to the national average.

A state indoor radon sampling survey conducted in 1987-89 by the Arizona Radiation Regulatory Agency suggest that about 1 out of 15 Arizona homes may contain radon concentrations in excess of the EPA recommended action level of 4.0 picocuries per liter of air (4.0pCi/L).
