If you’re in a situation where radon is present in your property, you can’t afford to let things pass you by and not take any action – you need to make sure that the building that you’re spending time in is both safe and habitable. At Fort Wayne Radon, we provide a number of radon mitigation options to make sure that you’re not suffering from radon symptoms later down the line, and that if you are grappling with such problems already, you won’t be for much longer. You might think that a radon infiltration would be a big issue to resolve, but it’s actually manageable so long as you have an expert on hand. We’ll make sure that the entire radon remediation process doesn’t affect you any longer than absolutely necessary.
Before any radon mitigation action is taken, it’s critical that we have a very clear image of the situation at your property. That means radon testing needs to be carried out across the entirety of the building. The primary focus of this radon inspection is to understand exactly how much radon is infiltrating the building. The secondary focus is to look at where the radon is entering the building from. Once we have these pieces of information, we’ll be very well placed to construct a plan that will help to stop the problem.
Active Soil Depressurization
Active soil depressurization is one of the more common radon mitigation techniques that we use, but there are a few different options to choose from even within this category. This technique involves the installation of pipes at the base of your property which channels the gas to roof level, and then releases it. The object of this is to make sure that the radon isn’t released in your property, it’s transported to a separate, harmless space. With active soil depressurization, you have three options. Interior, exterior, and foundation. All of these are equally effective, it really just comes down to where you’d like to have them fitted. Some people prefer to have it in the interior of their properties because they don’t want the sight of pipes on their property’s exterior.
Another option that you might want to consider in terms of radon mitigation is positive ventilation. This is where we set up a fan and channel air back into the property from the outside. This reduces the effects of radon by diluting it inside the building. Some models come with built in heaters, which means that you aren’t going to be blowing cold, exterior air into your cozy property.
Finding a Fit
There are multiple different courses of action to consider when it comes to radon mitigation, and which one is best for you largely comes down to a few key points. First and foremost is the level of radon exposure that your property is experiencing. If it’s particularly high, then that might eliminate some of your options. Of course, you’ll need to keep an eye on your budget as well – as some processes are more expensive than others. We’ll find something that is a perfect fit for you and your property.
