Why get a Radon Test for Your Beacon, New York Home?
Radon is a colorless and odorless carcinogenic gas that is impossible to detect if you don’t test for it. Radon exposure is the No. 2 cause of lung cancer in the U.S. and the No. 1 cause among non-smokers. Cancers associated with radon exposure kill more than 20,000 Americans every year, and an estimated 1 out of every 15 homes in the country has dangerously high levels of radon. With this in mind, we recommend that all homeowners have their properties tested for the presence of radon gas.
Radon Abatement, Mitigation & Remediation Systems/Solutions for Beacon NY
If a radon test reveals that your home has elevated radon levels above the recommended limit of 4 pCi/L, we can put a system in place to abate, mitigate, and remediate the problem. In most cases, we use a technique called active sub-slab depressurization which removes radon gas from the home with a system of fans and pipes.
Encapsulation & Crawl Space Mitigation
Crawl spaces with dirt floors typically offer little or no protection against radon gas. Crawl space encapsulation is a technique designed to prevent radon from entering a crawl space by sealing dirt floors with a non-permeable plastic liner.
Air Exchange Systems for Radon Mitigation
If you’re concerned about elevated radon levels in your basement, an air exchange system can be used to replace stagnant indoor air with fresh air from outside. These systems can be installed in both finished and unfinished basements to prevent radon levels from exceeding acceptable limits.
Radon gas often enters homes through cracks in concrete foundations. If we identify any cracks in your foundation, we can repair and seal them Rhino Carbon Fiber Concrete Crack Lock™ to prevent radon from seeping into your home.
