Radon abatement is the act of reducing radon concentration in the living breathing zones of residential buildings, or radon in water systems. Radon is an important contributor to global environmental radioactivity. It comprises more than 90% of the radioactivity released into the soil, air and water. Radon gas is very dangerous because it accumulates in the living tissues of humans and animals living in the house and thus can disperse for decades, even centuries, after the radon has been breathed in.
Radon gas is soluble in both organic and organic compounds and is one of the most prevalent gases in the atmosphere. The Radon Tester can be used as an indicator to determine the presence of radon in your home or commercial building. Radon testing should be performed by qualified professionals to accurately measure radon levels in residential and commercial buildings. The Radon Testing Laboratory can be located in most cities and is staffed by trained Radon Inspectors.
There are many ways to remove radon to keep your home or business safe from its destructive effects. Radon mitigation systems are designed to remove radon gas from the living spaces of homes and businesses. There are two types of Radon mitigation systems. Radon gas can be removed directly from the home or business with the use of a Radon Reduction Purification System. Or a Radon Reduction Dehumidifier can be used to remove radon from the surrounding atmosphere.
Both the Radon Reduction Purification Systems and the Radon Reduction Dehumidifiers provide excellent protection from radon and other pollutants in your home or business. The Radon Reduction Purification Systems are cost effective and reliable ways to remove radon. They do not waste energy or money and offer long-term protection from dangerous levels of radon gas. When purchasing a mitigation system, it is important that you choose one that has been proven to be effective in reducing or eliminating all forms of radon. As radon can build up over time in your home or office, it is important that you have the peace of mind that your home or office is protected against this silent, cumulative gas.
A Radon Reduction Purification System works by using a combination of physical and chemical techniques to rid your home or business of harmful radon. It does this by creating suction under the pipe that connects your home’s heating and cooling system to the sewer main. This is done by the Radon Reduction Valve or the Radon Softener. The Radon Reduction Valve is designed to control the amount of gas that seeps through your existing plumbing system into the ground. A Radon Softener is designed to prevent the gas from coming back up through the pipe or the floor drain, which is connected to the sewer main.
You should have a qualified professional inspect your home for radon before installing a Radon Mitigation System. In addition to the pipes and floor drain, a Radon Inspector should also inspect the basement and crawl space below your foundation slab. Any areas where the foundation slab and floor drain meet the slab should also be inspected. Radon gas can create a dangerous situation in your home if it comes in contact with your body, especially if you are already suffering from cancer or another illness. Radon gas can penetrate the lungs and into the blood stream, which can lead to serious health problems if it is present in large enough quantities.
If you believe that you have a Radon Problem then you should have your home tested by a certified Radon Inspector to determine the extent of the problem. If necessary they will use technology to map the inside of your home. An inspection of the inside of the foundation will include looking for cracks or other damage to the foundation slab and basement. They will also look for evidence of radon gas migration or leaking from the pipe. These are all indicators of a Radon Problem that should be fixed as soon as possible. You may need to dig up the surrounding soil to locate and repair the leaking foundation pipe.
It is essential that you work with a licensed, experienced and qualified radon mitigation systems contractor. The Radon Inspectors typically has a Radon Certification, but not all contractors and engineers are required to have this certification. If you are having any Radon Inspections then it is imperative that you work with an experienced and competent contractor who has the proper training and proficiency program to ensure your home’s protection against Radon.
