WHAT IS RADON?
Radon is a naturally occurring
radioactive gas which can penetrate most common building materials and is fairly soluble in water. Radon gas is a colorless, odorless, and invisible gas that can only be detected by radon testing. It's the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. Radon mitigation is the only way of protecting yourself and your family from the dangers of radon gas.
WHAT IS RADON MITIGATION?
Radon mitigation is the process of reducing radon levels in an occupiable space or from water. Radon gas is removed from below the house by way of fan suction through a pipe that extends past the roof line of the structure where the radon gas is released and effectively removed from the occupied area
