Radon Mitigation Sussex
Radon Removal Systems
Radon mitigation systems are the most effective way to reduce radon levels in your home. Radon is colorless, odorless, tasteless, and the second most common cause of lung cancer according to the EPA. Waukesha County radon levels are nearly six times the national average (6 pci/L compared to 1.3 pci/L). This is well above the 4.0 pci/L actionable level established by the EPA. A radon mitigation system will lower the levels of radon in your home and improve your air quality.
How Radon Collects in Your Home
An atomic particle, radon can enter your home in countless ways. You can seal cracks with paint and caulk, but radon will still permeate through. Radon collects in crawl spaces, attics, basements, and other similar places that have minimal air flow. Once here, the atomic radon particles will slowly leak out into your home, increasing the radon levels. Radon could be building in your crawlspace for years, slowly leaking out more and more as radon levels in the confined area increase.
How a Radon Mitigation System Works
All radon mitigation systems from Lifetime Radon Solutions operate under the same principle: sending radon into the atmosphere. Depending on the type of foundation you have, a radon mitigation system will draw radon from beneath your foundation and vent it into the atmosphere to be neutralized. Radon mitigation systems can be designed to vent air from attics, basements, walls, crawlspaces, or any other area prone to high levels of radon. There is no way to prevent radon, but with a radon mitigation system you can prevent radon from building up in your home.
