Radon Repair – How to Protect Your Home From Radon Gas
Radon Repair can help you protect your home and family from the health risks of radon gas. If you suspect that your home has a radon problem, you should hire a professional radon mitigation contractor. They are certified under the Canadian National Radon Proficiency Program and have special skills and knowledge to handle this type of work. They should also have references and be willing to provide a written estimate for the work.
What you should know about Radon mitigation?
A radon mitigation system works by installing pipes into the foundation floor slab and venting the gas outdoors. These systems reverse the air pressure difference between the house and the soil, which minimizes the amount of radon that is drawn into the home. The pipes are inserted through the floor slab and into crushed rock or soil. Some systems use multiple suction points to reduce radon levels in a house.
Regardless of whether you are purchasing a new home or renovating an old one, it’s important to check for radon levels. The EPA recommends that your home have a radon level less than 4 pCi/L. In addition, it’s important to get follow-up radon tests. This is because radon levels naturally fluctuate over time.
In addition to evaluating the level of radon in your home, you should also make sure that your contractor has completed radon mitigation work in the same building. If you find a contractor who does not have the necessary certification, then choose another one. If you hire someone who has a certificate from the C-NRPP, you can rest assured that the work will be done properly and safely.
