Most house and building owners in Donora PA feel relatively safe in their homes. Generally, air pollution is not a problem in Washington County, Pennsylvania. However, radon gas is a significant problem in our community and is the single greatest health threat to Donora PA families. Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that results from the breakdown of radioactive uranium, thorium and radium. Radon levels that measure 4.0 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) or higher are considered elevated and can have devastating health consequences for those exposed to it. For context, a study published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) ranked exposure to radon as the second leading cause of lung cancer behind cigarette smoking. Radon is commonly detected in random air samples and is generally harmless when encountered outdoors. However, radon that rises into a structure from the soil or rock beneath the basement, crawl space, or foundation slab may become concentrated indoors and reach dangerously high levels. When this occurs, it can cause health issues, even lung cancer, in individuals who regularly occupy the structure.

Radium, thorium and uranium are naturally occurring elements that are commonly found in soil, bedrock and groundwater sources across the United States, including here in Donora PA. The widespread prevalence of these substances means that radon gas is an issue faced by many home and commercial property owners. The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that over 8.5-million homes in the United States have dangerous concentrations of radon gas.

Radon Testing & Mitigation in Donora PA Homes

Without testing, most Donora property owners aren’t aware of the presence of radon gas until someone who lives in their household or works in their business develops serious health problems. Short-term tests for radon are conducted over a period of two to seven days while long-term tests measure the levels of radon for 90 days or longer. Information gathered from both types of tests is valuable in determining the extent of the gas’s potential impact on the property and its inhabitants. These tests are available in home improvement “big box” stores, such as Lowe’s and Home Depot, and in some Donora PA hardware stores. When radon levels are 4 pCi/L or higher, radon mitigation is recommended.

Tests are conducted by placing a small canister, cardboard strip, or digital measurement device in the lowest level of the structure where the gas is most likely to accumulate. The collection kit is left in one location for the specified amount of time and is then collected and processed to determine the level of radon that was present during the testing period. The residents or workers who occupy the property are asked to reduce exterior ventilation as much as possible during the test, but no other input or actions are required. We realize it can often be difficult to keep all windows closed, especially during hot Donora, Pennsylvania summers, but this is very important to assess accurate results. Once we’ve determined the presence and level of radon in a structure, our team can then offer a range of mitigation options that are tailored to the specific situation.

More Reviews from Happy SWAT Environmental Customers:

“Communication was great. Worked hard and I was very . The early results on a monitor I had were amazing. I realize the door was open a lot. Very pleased at this point. The only thing I noticed was a kink in the plastic hose for the pressure monitor. It still reads about 1.8 so should be good. ” – G. Haskins, Donora

“Derryl/Derrol (sp?) was a great representative of your company: professional, competent, knowledgeable, amiable. I’d place him in the top, maybe, two-percent of all contractors I’ve ever dealt with.” – C. Penny, Donora

If Your Home Has Elevated Radon Levels, Don’t Panic! In Donora PA Radon Mitigation Systems are Very Common.

Due to radon’s radioactive characteristics and the serious health problems associated with long-term radon exposure, Donora property owners should take immediate steps to mitigate even moderate levels of radon gas in their buildings. According to Sharica Hightower, radiation exposure causes more fatalities every year than any other environmental pollutant. “Because it is colorless and odorless, there is no way for someone to tell they have been exposed to radon until they start to experience symptoms typical of radon poisoning. Some of the more common ones include the following: caughing, wheezing, sore throat, and hoarse voice.”

At SWAT Environmental of Donora PA, we supply an array of radon removal options that are designed to prevent radon entry into the dwelling. Our mitigation systems operate by creating a vacuum in the soil beneath or immediately adjacent to the structure. This negative pressure draws any radon that is present upwards through the connected piping instead of entering the building’s basement, crawl space, or living area. The gas is then safely released through a vent above the roofline.
