The word “Radon mitigation”define the process of removing radon or radon emitting substances within a property. There are several ways to remove radon some and every process has its own efficacy and drawbacks. Among these, by far the best way to remove radon or radon emitting substances is by using a radon mitigation system. Radon mitigation systems are products of complex engineering. The devised methods by radon Mitigation Madison control the radon levels in usually two ways. One method prevents radon from entering the homes while other reduces existing radon gas. EPA recommends the method which completely blocks the entry of radon in the property.
Radon mitigation systems are manufactured using pipes and radon fans that help to suck the gas accumulated under the foundation of the property and then effectively exhaust the radon gas outside the property. By the face of it, the process of radon mitigation seems very simple but the true challenge lies somewhere else. Actually, it’s the installation which is hardest to nail. A great deal of professional excellence is required to carry out the task of installation of radon mitigating systems. We at radon Mitigation Madison ensure the smooth installation of these systems.
Choice of radon mitigation system depends largely on the type of house one is applying the system too. The most crucial aspect which has to be looked after is the foundation design of the property. Design of foundation provides the entry points to the radon, the size and number of entry points are influenced by the design of foundation. There are few other designs as well like in some part of the house there is basement while under the remaining house there is a slab on grade or crawl space. In such circumstances, radon mitigation Madison advises using a combination of radon reduction techniques to keep the radon levels within the tolerance.
Methods of mitigation:
As also discussed above sub-slab depressurization is a method which uses a system of pipes and an exhaust to reduce the radon levels in a property. This system removes the radon underneath the floor and foundations before it can make its way into the property. Similar systems are being used in properties with crawl space. There are few other systems that can also be used in properties but that entirely depends on the design of the property.
Sealing the cracks and opening is the most crucial part of any installed system as they let the radon flow into the property. Sealing of these cracks benefits in multiples ways it reduces the inflow of radon and it reduces the loss of radon free air hence, making the radon mitigation techniques more fruitful. EPA does not endorse the using of sealing without radon mitigation systems as sealing does not provide any considerable difference in reducing the level of radon on a regular basis; moreover, it is very hard to locate all the sealing point in a property from where the radon is entering the property that is why it can be entirely effective.
