Proven Radon Mitigation Treatments
Radon mitigation or abatement techniques are typically quite successful, and many companies today can offer 99 percent success rates. While there are many mitigation systems from which you can choose these days, we encourage you to talk with a Blackburn Foundation Repair expert who can guide you toward the right decision for your home.
Today, there are several familiar and proven methods for reducing radon exposure in home air, and these include such options as sealing, natural ventilation, energy recovery ventilation and air filtration. However, the Environmental Protection Agency recommends options that prevent radon from entering the home in the first place rather than methods that remove radon that continues entering the home. Therefore, suction and similar methods that remove radon from the soil beneath the home are generally seen as being the best and most logical radon mitigation techniques.
Radon mitigation experts from Blackburn Foundation Repair are trained through the National Radon Defense network using the newest techniques in the industry. Our teamwork with this network ensures that you get a safe, custom-designed system for your home that takes your foundational materials and home design into account. We typically use the following steps to install radon mitigation systems at homes in South Dakota, Nebraska and Wyoming.
- Decreasing stack effect
Stack effect refers to the presence of warm air in the home that escapes into the cooler outdoor air, which frequently occurs during the winter. Because the home rushes to replace this air, we can help to depressurize the soil under the home to redirect this effect.
- Creating a suction point
The suction point is a hole drilled into a foundation or crawlspace. Sometimes, more than one point must be drilled. These points give us areas from which we can vent the radon out of the home through a pipe.
- Venting out radon gas
The installed pipe is often attached to a fan to improve airflow out of the home.
- Sealing entry points
We will caulk any cracks or holes in foundations to stop radon from entering the home.
- Performing the final inspection
Radon mitigation experts ensure that each point of the system is installed and working properly.
- Performing a follow-up test
We come back to the home approximately 30 days following installation to make sure that the radon mitigation system is removing radon gas as it should.
