Radon may be seeping into my house.

Radon Mitigation

What is Radon?
Radon is a radioactive gas. It’s created by the naturally decaying uranium that is found in nearly all soils. It moves up through the ground to the air and into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Radon could potentially build up in any house unless there is a ventalation system installed. This means new and old homes, well-sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without basements.

Is Radon Dangerous?
You can't see, smell or taste it. But it may be a problem in your home.
Radon is estimated to cause many thousands of lung cancer deaths each year. Today in the United States, the Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths.

RADON GETS IN THROUGH:
  • Cracks in solid floors

  • Construction joints

  • Cracks in walls

  • Gaps in suspended floors

  • Gaps around service pipes

  • Cavities inside walls

  • The water supply

Radon mitigation involves venting the radon gas out of your house through the use of the Drain Tile and Sump Pump systems. Luckily, radon mitigation is extremely effective and only a phone call away.
