Let's Clear the Air!

We are a Pennsylvania-based Radon Mitigation Company dedicated to assisting homeowners in eliminating radon.

We are a Pennsylvania-based Radon Mitigation Company dedicated to assisting homeowners in eliminating radon, a colorless, odorless radioactive gas, from their residences. Radon originates from the natural decay of uranium in soil, rocks, and water, posing health risks through prolonged exposure. Our specialized services focus on effectively removing this hazardous gas to safeguard household well-being.

FACTS ABOUT RADON MITIGATION

  • Inhaling Radon Gas poses a significant risk of developing Lung Cancer. Implementing a comprehensive Radon Mitigation System stands as the sole effective measure to curtail this risk.
  • Radon Gas ranks as the second primary cause of Lung Cancer among smokers and the foremost cause among non-smokers in the United States. Demonstrably, Radon Reduction Systems have shown efficacy in diminishing the likelihood of lung cancer.
  • Radon Gas, devoid of any discernible odor, necessitates a radon test for accurate level assessment, followed by potential installation of a remediation system if levels surpass safety thresholds.
  • Given the fluctuating nature of Radon Gas concentrations, conducting Radon Testing biennially is strongly recommended. Even subsequent to the installation of a proficient Radon Reduction System, periodic Radon Tests every few years are advisable.
  • Pennsylvania has witnessed a significant increase in the implementation of radon mitigation systems, with a recorded surge of over 30% in residential installations in the past five years, marking a proactive response to the state’s elevated radon presence and a heightened awareness of its health implications.

PASSIVE MITIGATION

During home construction, a passive radon mitigation system is commonly installed, featuring two key elements:

1. A PVC ventilation pipe that runs from beneath the home’s slab to the roof’s eave line.
2. A physical barrier separating the soil from the house foundation.

Passive systems depend on natural air movements and pressure variations to expel radon from the dwelling. Often, construction firms install these systems without conducting radon tests for new homes.

However, passive radon systems might not effectively reduce extremely high radon levels below the EPA’s recommended limit of 4.0. Consequently, many homebuyers remain unaware of this limitation, potentially compromising their family’s health when purchasing a home with a passive system.

ACTIVE MITIGATION

An active radon mitigation system becomes necessary when a home registers elevated levels of radon gas. The “active” designation stems from the continuous operation of a fan, perpetually drawing radon from beneath the home, preventing its entry and directing it outside. This method is known as sub-slab depressurization.

This system comprises four primary components:

1. An electric vent fan
2. A u-tube manometer as a system failure warning device
3. A ventilation pipe extending from the sub-slab of the basement to above the roof’s eave line or within the garage attic
4. Sealed and caulked foundation cracks

The installation of an active mitigation system varies based on factors such as home layout, crawlspace existence, home size, current radon levels, soil composition, and more.

Typically, active radon removal systems can be installed within a few hours, contingent upon the home’s complexity.

Frequently asked questions about Radon

Radon is a sneaky, invisible gas that forms naturally from rocks and soil. It’s hard to detect because you can’t see, smell, or taste it, but it can seep into homes and become harmful when breathed in for a long time. It’s kind of like a hidden threat that experts work to find and remove to keep homes safe

Radon can sneak into homes through tiny cracks or openings in the foundation. It’s produced naturally in the soil and rocks beneath houses. This gas can seep up through the ground and enter your home through gaps around pipes, sump pumps, or even through construction joints. Once inside, it can accumulate and pose health risks when breathed in over time.

Even in new homes without apparent cracks or openings, radon can still find its way in through various entry points, such as construction joints or gaps around pipes. Testing for radon ensures a comprehensive understanding of indoor air quality, safeguarding against potential radon buildup that could occur despite a home’s new construction.

While a radon-resistant home is designed to minimize radon entry, it doesn’t guarantee complete prevention. Testing for radon is still recommended to ensure the levels remain within safe limits, as some radon could still find its way in despite these preventative measures.

Yes, extensive research and studies have established a clear association between radon exposure and an increased risk of developing lung cancer. Numerous scientific investigations and analyses have consistently demonstrated this correlation, emphasizing the threat that radon poses to lung health.

Radon emits radioactive particles as it breaks down. When inhaled, these particles can damage lung tissue, particularly the cells lining the airways. This damage can lead to mutations in the DNA, which, over time, may cause cells to grow uncontrollably, eventually resulting in cancer. The radioactive particles emitted by radon can harm lung cells, increasing the risk of developing lung cancer.

Signs of elevated radon levels often remain unnoticed since radon is colorless and odorless. Testing is the only reliable method to determine if radon concentrations in a home exceed safe levels. Testing kits or professional assessments can provide accurate readings and ensure a safe living environment.
