According to the Environmental Protection Agency, existing systems should be thoroughly inspected every other year. Because radon gas is so dangerous, this recommendation should not be ignored. Sadly, radon gas is the number two cause of lung cancer and is only surpassed by smoking. Each year, approximately 21,000 Americans die from over-exposure to radon.
Blackburn Foundation Repair is helping to decrease the dangers of radon gas in households across our service area by providing professional radon testing and mitigation systems. In addition to installing new systems, we can also inspect current systems.
Radon usually enters homes through cracks in foundations or soil in crawl spaces. However, a simple system that uses a PVC pipe and a fan to direct dangerous gases out of the soil and into the atmosphere can eliminate radon. The benefits of having your mitigation system checked regularly are many. Here are just a few of the top reasons for scheduling your appointment as soon as possible.
Most radon mitigation systems have easy setups, and the fan is typically the only piece that has moving parts. Over time, you can expect the fan to wear out.
If your home’s foundation changes for any reason, such as because of a home remodel or addition, you will want your mitigation system inspected.
Over time, new gaps and cracks may form in your home’s foundation as soil shifts. Gaps may also appear around the system’s pipes. These spaces will need to be filled in to keep the system working efficiently.
