Radon is a colorless, odorless carcinogenic gas that forms underground and seeps into homes through cracks in their foundations. At Radon Zapper, we have been offering radon testing and mitigation services to homeowners in Warwick, NY for almost 20 years.
Why get a Radon Test for Your Warwick, New York Home?
Although you can’t smell it or see it, radon gas can be downright deadly if it’s left undetected. Radon is the No. 1 cause of lung cancer among non-smokers and the No. 2 cause of lung cancer overall. More than 20,000 Americans die as a result of radon exposure every year. If a test reveals that the radon levels in your home exceed the recommended limit of 4 pCi/L, a mitigation system can be installed to resolve the issue.
Radon Abatement, Mitigation & Remediation Systems/Solutions for Warwick NY
If our tests find that your home does have elevated radon levels, we can work to abate, mitigate, and remediate the problem. More often than not, we use what’s called an active sub-slab depressurization system to reduce radon levels in residential properties. This method is designed to safely divert radon gas away from your home using a system of fans and plumbing.
Encapsulation & Crawl Space Mitigation
Basements and crawl spaces with dirt floors can be particularly vulnerable to radon gas. To prevent radon from penetrating dirt floors, we also offer crawl space encapsulation and mitigation. This technique uses a plastic liner to seal the floor and prevent radon from entering your home.
Air Exchange Systems for Radon Mitigation
In addition to using sub-slab depressurization systems and crawl space encapsulation, we can also install air exchange systems that replace stale indoor air with fresh air from outside. These active ventilation systems are designed to prevent radon gas from building up in basements.
Concrete Crack Repair & Sealing in Warwick NY
