The Radon Mitigation Process - How To Keep Your Home Safe From This Dangerous Radioactive Gas

(1888PressRelease) SWAT Environmental provides radon mitigation services to insure that your home and your family is safe from this odorless, colorless, radioactive gas.

S.W.A.T. Environmental wishes to inform the public of the dangers of radon gas, which is estimated to cause 21,000 lung cancer deaths annually in the United States. Radon is the greatest cause of lung cancer after tobacco smoking. SWAT Environmental is prepared eliminate this menace in your home, by using the latest radon mitigation techniques. SWAT Environmental is licensed and insured. The national license insures that SWAT Environmental employees are fully qualified to perform work that meets the state and national standards for radon mitigation.

Radon is a colorless, odorless, radioactive gas that is released by the decay of radium. It is present in all outside air in varying amounts, but because of the low concentration it is not considered a hazard. Quite often, it is present in buildings at levels considered unsafe. Modern houses are constructed in a more air-tight manner for insulation purposes. This slows the air exchange rate of the house and results in a stronger concentration of radon gas. The gas in the soil leaks into the living quarters from leaks in the basement, from an unprotected crawl space or from beneath a concrete slab floor.

SWAT Environmental Uses the Active Soil Depressurization Radon Mitigation Technique

slide2

The usual method of radon mitigation is the installation of a pipe running from the area below the concrete slab to above the roofline of the house. This is usually done at an inconspicuous corner of the house, but can be run through the attic if necessary. A specially designed, inline, electric fan pulls air from beneath the slab. The process is called active soil depressurization. If a crawl space is involved, radon mitigation is accomplished by extending the plastic pipe below the plastic membrane covering the ground in the crawl space and exhausting the radon gas to above the roofline.

The SWAT Environmental Radon Mitigation Process Requires Crack Sealing

The gas leaks into the basement through cracks in the concrete slab, the basement walls, floor drains, sump pumps and penetrations of utility lines. Stopping radon infiltration by sealing these cracks is usually ineffective when performed without any additional radon mitigation work. Cracks in the walls are inaccessible if the walls are finished with sheetrock. During the radon mitigation process, the cracks will be sealed as much as possible to improve the depressurization of the area below the slab. SWAT Environmental is experienced in all phases of the radon mitigation process.

SWAT Environmental Also Uses Other Radon Mitigation Techniques

If the radon mitigation sub-slab depressurization technique is not possible or is not sufficient to reduce the radon reading to 4.0 pCi/l or below, SWAT Environmental will use other radon mitigation methods. Active soil pressurization is an alternative radon mitigation technique that is taught in EPA radon mitigation courses, which creates positive pressure beneath the slab rather than negative, to prevent the entry of radon gas.

The increased air pressure disperses the radon gas away from the foundation of the house, preventing elevated concentrations of the radon to accumulate in the building.
