At Radon Zapper, we have been providing radon testing and mitigation services to homeowners in Philipson, NY for close to two decades. Radon is an odorless, colorless carcinogenic gas that often goes undetected in homes that have never been tested. We can test your home for the presence of radon gas, and then treat your home if necessary to reduce elevated radon levels.
Why get a Radon Test for Your Philipstown, New York Home?
Every year, more than 20,000 Americans die as a result of radon exposure. Radon gas is considered the No. 1 cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, and the No. 2 cause of lung cancer overall. An estimated 1 out of every 15 homes in the U.S. has dangerously high levels of radon, and yet many homeowners are more-or-less unaware of the health risks associated with radon exposure.
Radon Abatement, Mitigation & Remediation Systems/Solutions for Philipstown NY
In the event that we test your home and detect radon concentrations that exceed the recommended safe level of 4 pCi/L, we can use abatement, mitigation, and remediation systems in to bring it back down. In most cases, we can use a technique called active sub-slab depressurization to divert radon gas away from your home with a system of fans and plumbing.
Encapsulation & Crawl Space Mitigation
While active sub-slab depressurization is often the best way to get rid of radon, there are other methods that can be used effectively as well. Crawl space encapsulation is ideal for homes with dirt floor crawlspaces that offer little or no protection against radon gas. This method involves using a non-permeable plastic liner to seal the dirt floor and prevent radon from getting inside.
Air Exchange Systems for Radon Mitigation
An air exchange system is a great option for homeowners with both finished and unfinished basements. These systems are designed to take stale air from inside of a basement and exchange it with fresh air from outside. This effectively mitigates radon levels, ensuring that they remain in the acceptable range.
If you have elevated radon levels in your home, it could be because the gas is leaking through cracks in your concrete foundation. We can repair and seal these cracks with Rhino Carbon Fiber Concrete Crack Lock™ to prevent radon from entering your home in the future.
