Radon Mitigation — Instrumental Tactics For Homeowners

by Delores Chavez

Radon mitigation is the act of testing and removing radon in a property. It's necessary if you suspect radon in your home. To handle mitigation like a pro, be sure to take these steps.

Find the Cause of Radon

To respond appropriately to possible radon gas in your home, try to find the cause. Something led to the buildup of radon, a radioactive gas that can cause cancer if exposed for too long. 

Most of the time, it's due to the soil conditions around a property, but it can be other things as well like stones and rocks. You need to find out the source so that after you find a way to remove radon from your home, you make adjustments to keep it from returning. 

Work With a Radon Contractor 

Although manufacturers make radon testing kits that you can use all on your own, it's still wise to hire a radon contractor for testing, repairs, and home improvements. They know how to stay safe throughout each step they perform.

Their inspection methods also involve state-of-the-art equipment that delivers accurate results consistently. So if radon is indeed in your home, you'll be the first to know about it and can then work with the radon specialist to plan mitigation tactics. 

Invest in a Mitigation System 

If you discover that radon is in your home, one of the best ways to respond is to invest in a mitigation system. It will remove radon from your home, reducing the levels to a safe range. 

Most mitigation systems work the same: They use fans to pull radon from the soil and move it through pipes that lead to the outside. As long as your system has strong fans, you can effectively deal with radon gas. 

Keep Verifying That the System Works 

After you purchase a mitigation system for radon and have had time to use it, make sure it continues doing its job from here on out. You never want it to malfunction and subsequently allow radon gas to build up over time.

You can test the system or hire a professional company to perform detailed assessments. If there are problems with your machine, fix them before you resume living in your home. After all, you wouldn't want to expose yourself to radon for any amount of time. 

If you believe radon is in your home somewhere, focus on proven mitigation strategies so you don't remain at risk.
