Radon Mitigation Techniques in Columbia, MD

Now that you know the health risks associated with radon gas, it is important to learn how our process actually works. Before radon mitigation can be completed, you must first have a professional provide a radon test. A radon test may take as long as a few days, or it may take three months. It all depends on the type of radon testing method you choose for your Columbia home.

Once the testing results are received, it is time to call a professional. The general rule of thumb is that anything above 4 pCi/L is considered dangerous to your health, and a radon mitigation system will need to be installed. Although this is a general rule, you may want to highly consider having a radon mitigation system installed if you are near the limit.

Contacting a radon mitigation company is the next and most important step. Did you know that radon may be located in your water supply, soil, or even building materials, all causing this horrible gas to enter into your home? Depending on the location and severity, the actual process will differ between each Columbia home. The most popular method is soil suction or air purification as the common location for radon is in your soil. These processes involve sucking the radon from your soil and out of your home.
