Mitigation is a term used to describe the process of lowering radon levels. A radon mitigation system is any system or steps designed to reduce radon concentrations found in the indoor air quality of your home. The EPA stresses the need to take action to reduce indoor radon levels if your radon test results come back 4 pCi/L or higher, through mitigation, also called remediation.
Our number one priority is efficient radon gas removal, however, aesthetics are carefully considered in each radon removal system design. All of our systems are designed and installed by an experienced professional.
A post-mitigation measurement is always performed to ensure proper radon reduction. Any necessary radon mitigation system amendments are completed at no additional cost if post-mitigation measurements continue to indicate unacceptable radon levels

A negative pressure field is created below the building to prevent the entry of radon gas. A penetration is made in the concrete floor (slab) and a small pit is created beneath each penetration. If there is no slab, a radon retardant vapor barrier is affixed over rock and dirt prior to creating the penetration(s). PVC vent pipe is connected to the penetration(s) and is typically routed unobtrusively to the suction side of the Radon Away radon mitigation fan. Additionally, PVC vent pipe is then connected to the pressure side of the fan and routed up the sidewall of the house to discharge the radon gas safely above the roof. A weather proof electrical connection is provided for the fan.

One or more penetrations are made in the concrete floor (slab) and a small pit is created beneath each penetration. If there is no slab, a radon retardant vapor barrier is affixed over rock and dirt prior to creating the penetration(s). PVC vent pipe is connected to the penetration(s) and is typically routed unobtrusively (through closets, plumbing chases or other unexposed areas) to the suction side of the RadonAway radon mitigation fan. PVC vent pipe is then connected to the pressure side of the fan and routed through the roof using a standard roof flange and proper sealants. The radon gas is discharged safely above the roof. The PVC vent pipe protrudes slightly above the roof and has the same appearance as a standard plumbing vent pipe.
