Radon Mitigation and Radon Gas Reduction

High levels of radon have been found in every state across America. Radon Mitigation and radon testing have become more prevalent in the past few years in residential, commercial and real-estate environments with the real-estate market showing the biggest growth due to some state and local real-estate regulations mandating the testing and mitigation of radon in homes on the market. Radon Mitigation and the removal of radon gas are generally accomplished by removing radon from below the house or building by way of fan suction and removing the radon gas safely through a pipe that extends past the roof line of the structure where the radon gas is released and effectively removed from the occupied area. Radon mitigation is the only way of protecting yourself and your family from the dangers of radon gas and with the levels of radon growing every year it is important that you get a radon test done on your home so that you may be able to take care of the problem head on. SWAT Environmental is constantly and aggressively dealing with the problems of radon gas nationwide and locally in your areas. We install more than 10,000 radon systems yearly and have been dealing with radon mitigation since 1988. Radon Mitigation and radon removal is what we do and we are dedicated to providing quality radon mitigation services.

What is Radon?

Radon is everywhere indoor and outdoor with the higher levels being found indoor where radon is more concentrated and takes longer to break down. Radon is a radioactive gas that is caused by the decay of uranium in the soil. Radon gas is a colorless, odorless, and invisible gas that can only be detected by radon testing. Radon can penetrate most common building materials and is fairly soluble in water. Exposure to radon is most common through ingestion and inhalation, with inhalation being the largest threat to your health. Radon Awareness has grown exponentially over the past 10 years and is only becoming a more common issue nationwide. Radon Gas and Radon awareness are imparative to the health and future of you and your loved ones. Visit our Radon Information pages to learn more about the dangers of radon gas and what you can do to keep everyone safe from radon gas exposure.

What is Radon Mitigation?

Radon mitigation is the process of reducing radon levels in an occupiable space or from water. If there is a high level of radon gas in any occupiable space or in water the process of radon mitigation should help reduce the levels or radon gas which will help reduce risk of health concerns caused by over exposure of radon over time.

How to find out if you have a radon problem?

Radon testing is the only true way to find out if you have a radon gas issue in your home or business. You can find radon test kits and or radon monitors through several organizations or even local hardware stores. By administering a radon test you can find out your current radon levels during your test. By purchasing a radon monitor you can monitor your indoor radon levels throughout the year. Radon is a volatile gas and the amount of radon entering your home is effected by the season and it always changes. Testing or monitoring your indoor radon levels is very important for you, your family, and your friends

Radon Remediation

Radon Mitigation And Radon Remediation

Radon Mitigation and radon remediation are two nearly interchangeable terms referring to the various methods used to lower the overall levels of radon gas in residential and commercial buildings. More than 21,000 deaths per year in the United States are attributed to radon gas exposure, as estimated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Uninformed homeowners often dismiss the severity of radon gas exposure or attempt to decrease levels by opening windows, using paint sealers, and turning fans on. Radon mitigation is a complex process because radon is an invisible, odorless gas that cannot be detected by human senses. Radon penetrates homes through the various cracks and openings in the foundation of buildings and passes directly through concrete. Drains, sump pumps, and gaps between the floor and wall all contribute to radon gas exposure in homes around the world. While some regions of the world have higher levels of radon gas, most regions in the United States experience elevated levels of radon. On average, 1 out of every 15 homes in the United States is exposed to critical levels of radon gas.

In order to better understand the importance of radon mitigation, one must understand the detrimental effects of radon exposure that impact human health. Radon gas (Rn) is radioactive and can be unknowingly inhaled. As radioactive decay progresses, the particles release minute amounts of energy in the lungs. These particles interact with and eventually damage lung tissue. Prolonged exposure can lead to lung cancer, hence the need for radon mitigation. The Surgeon General advises that "Indoor radon is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and breathing it over prolonged periods can present a significant health risk to families all over the country. It's important to know that this threat is completely preventable. Radon can be detected with a simple test and fixed through well-established venting techniques," according to the EPA. It is important to note that not everyone exposed to the radioactive gas will get lung cancer. In fact, the amount of time between exposure and the eventual onset of cancer can span several years. Radon mitigation drastically reduces exposure to radon gas and effectively takes away the cancer risk associated with the radioactive gas. Smoking tobacco while being exposed to radon gas increases the risk of lung cancer. Children are more susceptible to radioactive exposure because they are growing faster and the cells in their bodies are multiplying quickly; because of this, families (especially with small children) should consider radon mitigation. Radon mitigation is not optional if one wishes to protect the long-term well-being of their family.

Radon exposure poses a significant risk to the well-being of homeowners around the United States. Families wishing to buy new homes often ask realtors about radon levels to prevent radon remediation procedures in the future. Radon levels do fluctuate, and therefore, consistent testing is key in maintaining a safe environment and living situation. Exceptional radon remediation is available through SWAT Environmental and their urgency and dedication to mitigating this radioactive gas is second to none. Do not waste time and overlook the risk of radon, test and mitigate today. Simply "smelling" your home is useless because radon is both odorless and colorless. The only effective way to reduce the risk of lung cancer is to check your home's radon levels. Radon mitigation is a relatively inexpensive process and the health benefits of the procedure simply cannot be quantified. Contact SWAT Environmental as soon as possible for proper consultation.
