Guidelines about Radon

Installing passive radon mitigation systems will cost between $150 and $300, while installing an active system will cost between $250 and $500, depending on the size of the house. Is it necessary to conduct a radon gas test in your home? Yes, is the only answer! What is the reason for this? Since radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers, and it’s simple to reduce the risk.Have a look at radon for more info on this.

Radon is invisible, odourless, and tasteless. However, it could still be an issue in your house. A simple radon test in your home is the only way to know for sure whether you have a problem. Most radon test kits take 48 hours to complete, and the results can take up to a week to arrive from the lab. Using an electronic measuring unit, for example, is a faster way to test your home. These approaches are more costly, and have the same results as the 48-hour canisters do. It’s best to use the basic canister test kits if you have the spare time. These are available at your favourite hardware store.

If you find that your home has radon levels of 4 pCi/L (picocurries per litre) or higher, you can act quickly and get radon remediation completed. This sounds more complicated than it is, but you can complete it in one afternoon and get results that are guaranteed to be less than 4pCi/L. This will provide you and your family with the radiation protection that you and they deserve.

Radon remediation can be accomplished in a variety of ways. It depends on your home’s design, square footage, whether you have drain tile and/or a sump pit, whether you have a crawl space, and so on… These issues are fairly common, and a trained radon mitigation specialist would be able to tell you exactly what needs to be done to your home in order to achieve the lowest radon level possible.
