Radon Mitigation Testing according to EPA

Our Organization Radon Mitigation System Solutions is the best Radon Testing Madison wi Company there is. We have 30 years of Radon removal and testing experience under our belt and in this tenure, there isn’t any occasion on which we couldn’t been able to deliver. Our Radon Mitigation Contractors are properly prompted,  trained professionals having mitigated thousands of homes in Wisconsin. According to EPA only Radon is killing around 25000 people every year. If we talk about lung cancer than Radon comes at the 1st place in non-smoker category and in the 2nd place if we talk about the whole humanity. Radon gas is odorless, colorless and people have been inhaling them for such a long time without knowing it. So, please we suggest that at least once a year make tests for Radon Gas to make sure that you are not living in a harm’s way. Take the help of professionals and call us. We will not only mitigate your house with radon but we will make sure that you won’t be facing such kind of problem in your future again.

Radon Mitigation Techniques

  • Block Wall Depressurization:

The limit of Radon gas set by the EPA and the surgeon general is anything below 4 pCi/L  but World Health Organization says it to keep it  below 2.7 pCi/L. If the Radon Level is above the concerned limit then you have to mitigate your house and for that purpose there is a method known as block wall depressurization. In this method the Pipe is inserted in to the block cavity in the floor and also in the hollow walls and then this mechanism is connected with the radon mitigation fan. This fan will remove the Radon gas from the floor and also the radon gas and moisture from that of the hollow block walls. It is connected with the hollow walls basically for the moisture removal because the moisture will cause much damage to the house walls in the later days. This method gives best results when it is used with sub-slab method.

 

  • Crawl Space Depressurization:

It is a rather expensive process as it requires more resources. This method uses a Polyvinyl sheet i.e. laid on the floor and the floor is then properly vented i.e. fixed with the foundations no air can enter nor escapes out. A pipe is inserted into the PVC sheet and is connected with the Radon Mitigation Fan. It sucks the Radon Gas from beneath the PVC sheet  by creating vacuum inside it as there is no place for the gases to escape so they are sucked directly into the pipe and further from there moves towards the ceiling above the roofline and escapes out according to EPA regulations.

 

  • Sub Slab Depressurization:

This is one of the most commonly used methods of Radon Mitigation in Wisconsin. In this method a vacuum is generated under a basement floor by sealing the slab perfectly i.e. no air can enter nor leave. And after that, a radon mitigation fan is used for the suction of radon gas from the floor. This is released in to the Atmosphere according to the EPA rules.
