Your Home Tested High for Radon, Now What?

By April 10, 2019No Comments

If you’ve received failing results from a radon test, you may feel a little panicked. However, it’s important to remember that there are professional radon mitigation installers who can get your home back to a healthy level. While it is not possible to get rid of radon gas, it is possible to get it to stop seeping into your home.

Radon mitigation systems are basically giant air filters installed in below the floor of a basement or crawlspace. Professional installers use ventilation pipes to suck the gas out from below your home and release it out above the home. This redirects the flow of radon from going through your concrete floor and into the home out into the atmosphere instead. For these systems to work, they have to be running constantly.
