Most house and building owners in Homewood IL feel relatively safe in their homes. Generally, air pollution is not a problem in Cook County, Illinois. However, radon gas is a significant problem in our community and is the single greatest health threat to Homewood IL families. Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that results from the breakdown of radioactive uranium, thorium and radium. Elevated radon levels have been found in all types of buildings including homes, schools, condominiums, government buildings, and skyscrapers. 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 Homewood IL. 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 Homewood IL Homes

Without testing, most Homewood 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 Homewood IL 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 Homewood, Illinois 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.

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

Due to radon’s radioactive characteristics and the serious health problems associated with long-term radon exposure, Homewood property owners should take immediate steps to mitigate even moderate levels of radon gas in their buildings. According to Cheris Peoples, radiation exposure causes more fatalities every year than any other environmental pollutant. “When exposed to elevated radon levels, you may experience chest pain.”

At SWAT Environmental of Homewood IL, 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.

Our Homewood IL Customers Rave About Our Top-Notch Staff & Service:

“Only comment is that we had requested a call up to one hour before the installer was due to arrive because we had a one hour drive to get to my mom’s home where the system was being installed. Unfortunatley, the installer called my brother in Oregon instead of myself. Luckily, we erred on the side of caution, left our home at 6am and arrived at 7am the earliest he could have arrived. Adam was very professional and did a great job.” – J. Waterman, Homewood

“Lucas, was very professional and patient with us as we plan where to install system, after a multiples attempts we figure it out and we are happy with the new system. Thank you!” – K. Mcfarland, Homewood
