Methods of Reducing Radon

 

Levels of radon above the EPA limits present a health threat in:

            * Homes

            * Schools

            * Work places


 

The EPA recommends that radon testing and mitigation be provided by certified, trained professionals that have the required technical knowledge and special skill.  To insure the best results, contractors who have been certified through programs such as the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (AARST) in testing and mitigation should be consulted. 

Tom Manz, owner, is certified through AARST-NRPP.  ResCom carefully follows AARST and EPA radon mediation protocols.  
Tom is also one of the few KC metro area radon specialists who has qualified for the new multi-family mitigation certification.

The following is a short video of Tom Manz taking you through the radon mitigation system installation process.
 





The primary and most effective technique used to reduce radon in a home or building is an active sub-slab depressurization (ASD) using a vent pipe system and fan, which pulls radon from beneath the house or building and vents it safely to the outside.

 A suction point
is drilled through the floor slab.  A 3-inch PVC pipe is installed into the suction point.  This piping is then run from the suction point to the exterior of the home.  
  
  
  










   
   

A radon fan is placed in line with the piping on the exterior of the home to create suction drawing air and soil gasses from under the basement floor and safely venting it outside.

For an
interior system, the piping is run through a closet or garage area into the attic and vented through the roof. After mitigation, radon levels are lowered below the EPA action level of 4 pCi/L.  Our fans have a five-year warranty.   We provide a free follow up test after installation.

Radon Resistant New Construction
is a relatively new method of reducing radon.  RRNC includes installing a passive radon system while a home is under construction.  This involves installing vent piping from below the basement floor up through the framing into the attic, venting through the roof.  These systems need to be installed in such a manner to enhance the addition of a radon fan in the attic  if the home tests high for radon upon occupancy. 

New home buyers beware!  The presence of a passive radon system DOES NOT GUARANTEE the home will have low radon levels!  Passive radon systems typically reduce radon levels only by 30-50%.  Therefore, radon testing should always be a part of a full house inspection.

ResCom Radon Solution will carefully evaluate the type of mitigation system needed to fit each individual home or building.  Our friendly, courteous, and professional staff is glad to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
