Most house and building owners in Lakemoor IL feel relatively safe in their homes. Generally, air pollution is not a problem in McHenry County, Illinois. However, radon gas is a significant problem in our community and is the single greatest health threat to Lakemoor IL families. Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that results from the breakdown of radioactive uranium, thorium and radium. For the most precise results, you’ll need a professional radon inspection. The technician will carefully examine your home, identify radon entry points, and use precision instruments to measure the exact airborne concentrations within the household. 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 Lakemoor IL. The widespread prevalence of these substances means that radon gas is an issue faced by many home and commercial property owners. For those not as familiar with the periodic table of the elements, radon is a noble gas. And this means it does not readily form chemical compounds, thus explaining why it is colorless, odorless, and more or less invisible.

Radon Testing & Mitigation in Lakemoor IL Homes

Without testing, most Lakemoor 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 Lakemoor 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 Lakemoor, 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 Lakemoor IL Radon Mitigation Systems are Very Common.

Due to radon’s radioactive characteristics and the serious health problems associated with long-term radon exposure, Lakemoor property owners should take immediate steps to mitigate even moderate levels of radon gas in their buildings. According to Cydnee Knowles, radiation exposure causes more fatalities every year than any other environmental pollutant. “While radon can form in just about any home under the right conditions, the likelihood of it happening is much higher, according to World Population Review, in the following geographic areas: Northwest, North-Central, Northeast, and Southeast United States.”

At SWAT Environmental of Lakemoor 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.
