Radon mitigation

What is Radon?

Radon is a radioactive, tasteless, colorless and odorless gas. It’s a chemical element with symbol Rn. Radon mitigation is the process of properly removing radon and its decay products from a home or property. The best way to remove radon and its decay products are through a radon extenuation system. These radon removing systems are made up of series of pipes and reduction fans that help to suck the radon gas from beneath the foundation of the property and then fuming the gas out of the property. This process is very simple but the experience of installation is very important.

Ways of radon mitigation:

There are four ways of radon mitigation in-house or in any property:

  • Soil suction by increasing under-floor ventilation;
  • Improving the ventilation of the house
  • In the basement have a radon sump system;
  • Go for a positive supply ventilation system.

Soil suction Method:

According to the standards of EPA, the strategy to reduce radon includes an aperture pipe system and fan, which helps in extracting radon from the basement of the property or house and pushes it outside. This method is called sub-slab depressurization or soil suction. Normally radon inside the homes can be removed by soil suction and diffusing such air full of radon to the outdoors. You can reduce levels of radon from crawlspace homes by blanketing the earth floor with a plastic sheet of high-density.

Generally, EPA suggests methods which block the re-entry of radon. For example, Soil suction stops radon from coming into your home by drawing it out from the basement of the home and releasing it out with the help of a pipe to the air above the home where it is rapidly mitigated. EPA does not propose the use of sealing alone for Radon Mitigation because reports have shown that sealing has not assisted in lowering radon levels significantly.

Radon can also be removed by combining pressure ventilation systems with a heat exchanger to regain power in the procedure of exchanging air with the outside air. As a matter of fact,it’s still not a viable solution as this can allow radon gas to enter the home.
