Radon mitigation techniques vary depending on the build of your home, but generally speaking, the steps we take include:
- Radon Testing – This will determine whether or not radon is a problem in your Utica, NY home, and if you need install a radon mitigation system.
- Soil Depressurization – If it is determined that you have a radon problem, the first thing we’ll do is depressurize the soil beneath your home.
- Radon Gas Redirection – Next, we’ll drill a hole in the lowest level of your home (slab, basement floor, or earth), which will create a suction point. We’ll then connect a pipe to the hole.
- Radon Gas Ventilation – The radon gas will travel through this pipe to a fan located at a higher level, which will direct the gas out of the pipe and away from your home.
- Sealing – We’ll seal the cracks, gaps and openings where radon seepage is evident, preventing more radon from entering your home.
- Mitigation System Analysis – We’ll perform a complete inspection to ensure that the radon mitigation system is functioning at industry standards and providing the necessary protection in your Utica, NY home.
- Radon Retesting – After 30 days of completed installation, our technician will retest the radon levels in your home to ensure that your mitigation system is working properly and radon gas is at the recommended level.
