What is a Complex Radon Remediation System?
Each radon mitigation is unique. Some can be straight strait forward, one suction point and a fan. However, it's important to take all variables into consideration when designing and installing a Radon Remediation System. Is there a crawlspace? Are there additions to the property? Does the basement have a sump pump or a high-water table? Will there be a need for more than one suction point or Radon Mitigation Systems?
There are several proven methods to reduce radon in your home, but the one most used has a vent pipe system and fan, which pulls radon from beneath the house and vents it to the outside. This system, known as a soil depressurization system, does not require major changes to your home. Sealing foundation cracks and other openings makes this kind of system more effective and cost-efficient. Similar systems can also be installed in houses with crawl spaces. The right system depends on the design of your home and other factors like whether your home has a basement.
After installing a radon reduction system, test your home again to make sure it is working and consider retesting your home every two years to be sure radon levels remain low. Also retest your home after any remodeling.
Depending on the levels of Radon Gas, there could be a need for a larger fan, multiple fans or multiple suction points. There could be a need for a much larger pipe than the standard 3-4 inch pipe used. When calling around for quotes, make sure the company you choose has asked all of these questions above and have a Radon Remediation Plan specifically designed for your home or office.
