What is Radon?

 

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas. It results from the decay of uranium that is found in nearly all soils. Outdoors, radon is diluted to low concentrations and poses no health problems. However, once inside your home or office, radon can accumulate to unhealthy levels.

 

How Does Radon Get In My Home?

 

Radon can be a problem in homes of all types; old homes, new homes, drafty homes or insulated homes. Radon does not care whether or not you have a basement.  Air pressure differences between the house and soil create a slight

vacuum, drawing radon gas from the soil into your home

or office.

 

Radon gas can enter your home through:

 

1.    Floors or walls

2.    Floor drains

3.    Sump

4.    Construction joints

5.    Cracks & pores in hollow or solid concrete walls.

 

Radon levels in your home are de­pendent on several

factors, such as design, type of construction, effects of

air handling equipment, ventilation, water supply, and the

concentration of radon in underlying soil,   Radon levels are generally highest in base­ments or the lowest living level of your home.

  

Radon Mitigation

 

Radon Mitigation systems work by lowering the air pressure slightly under the house. 

Because no level of radon is considered ab­solutely safe, radon levels in your home should be reduced to the lowest possible level.
