Get Rid of That Radon Problem
Radon Mitigation in Idaho Falls
Radon is a radioactive gas formed from the natural breakdown of uranium in rocks, soil, and water. It silently creeps into a building’s living spaces through cracks in the walls and floors or leaks in the piping and plumbing systems.
Over time, the gas forms part of the indoor air which puts the occupants on the property at risk of developing lung cancer. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that radon causes about 21,000 lung cancer deaths every year and is the second leading cause of lung cancer after cigarette smoke.
Many areas in Idaho have high radon levels and therefore, the local government considers it a major public health concern. Since there is no safe level of radon exposure, the EPA recommends property owners undertake mitigation measures for levels between 2.0 pCi/L – 4.0 pCi/L.
At Healthy Home Environmental Services, we offer custom radon mitigation in Idaho Falls for homes and businesses. We conduct a structural survey of your property and install the best mitigation system to help reduce radon concentration in the indoor air and expel it safely.
Radon Mitigation System Before & After
What You Can Expect From HHE Radon Mitigation Services
Our Radon Mitigation Process
Our radon mitigation process follows these four steps:
1. Property Inspection
A professional inspection helps us to identify the property’s design components and specific radon entry points so we can design the appropriate mitigation system that meets your needs.
2. Sealing Cracks in the Foundation and Floors
Sealing the cracks in the foundation, floors, and walls ensures that the gas does not escape the mitigation system.
3. System Installation
The installation process varies slightly depending on the system. However, for a basement or crawl space system, the procedure involves drilling a hole, connecting a PVC pipe, and installing a fan at the top of the structure to safely direct the gas away from the indoor environment.
4. Post-Mitigation Testing
We perform post-mitigation tests to check the changes in the radon levels and the effectiveness of the mitigation system.
