Effective Radon Mitigation Techniques
Some radon reduction, mitigation, or abatement systems are proven to have a 99% success rate! Unsure which system is right for you? Well, Michaelis’s experts would be happy to meet with you and help you make the best decision regarding a radon mitigation system.
There are several methods or systems available from preventing radon gas from entering the home while and reducing radon levels after it has entered the building. The EPA generally recommends methods that prevent radon from entering, such as soil suction, that draws the radon from below the basement or crawl space floor pushes it out into the outside air. Other radon reduction techniques that can be used in any type of house include sealing, air filtration, house/room pressurization, energy recovery ventilation, and natural ventilation.
Michaelis’s experts radon technicians are extensively trained using industry-leading best practices for installing radon mitigation systems to pull and expel radon from your home.
All of the radon experts are trained in the National Radon Defense extension, industry-leading technical training program. We comply with all of the radon industry’s recommended procedures to ensure the highest quality solutions for you and your family. Each radon mitigation system is custom and depends on the structure of your home. The presence of a full basement, crawl space or concrete slab all factor into the design of each mitigation systems, but the following steps are taken in most installations:
Redirecting the “stack effect”. Depressurizing the soil beneath your structure allows us to redirect the stack effect, and the radon gas with it.
Creating suction. A hole is drilled into the slab, crawl space, or surrounding earth to create a suction point (sometimes more than one suction point is needed). The radon gas is vented through a PVC pipe that is connected to the hole. The pipe can be installed through the house or outside. Some newer homes have radon control systems installed that run through the home.
Radon is vented out, away from your home the pipe is connected to a fan for proper ventilation.
Radon entry points are sealed. To resist gas entry, cracks are sealed using a urethane caulking compound.
A final system checklist is performed. Your technicians are trained and certified to inspect the entire radon mitigation system after it has been installed to make sure it complies with industry standards. Proper system labeling and proper fan operation are checked, along with other key system details.
Retesting for radon. Retesting is done within 30 days of the system installation to ensure the system is working effectively.
Michaelis experts offer a variety of payment options for your convenience.
