Most house and building owners in Portersville PA feel relatively safe in their homes. Generally, air pollution is not a problem in Butler County, Pennsylvania. However, radon gas is a significant problem in our community and is the single greatest health threat to Portersville PA families. Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that results from the breakdown of radioactive uranium, thorium and radium. In a joint study involving the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Surgeon General’s office, researchers found that approximately 20,000 lung cancer deaths are caused by radon exposure each year in America. 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 Portersville PA. The widespread prevalence of these substances means that radon gas is an issue faced by many home and commercial property owners. While radon exposure can jeopardize anyone’s health, it can prove especially dangerous for children.  Studies show that this is because the cells in children divide more frequently than in adults.  Therefore, the risk of genetic damage and associated health problems are far more likely.

Radon Testing & Mitigation in Portersville PA Homes

Without testing, most Portersville 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 Portersville 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 Portersville, 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.

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

Due to radon’s radioactive characteristics and the serious health problems associated with long-term radon exposure, Portersville property owners should take immediate steps to mitigate even moderate levels of radon gas in their buildings. According to Wilder Riddle, radiation exposure causes more fatalities every year than any other environmental pollutant. “Aside from their molecular makeup, a notable difference between carbon monoxide and radon is that radon does not cause fatigue, headaches, confusion, or dizziness.”

At SWAT Environmental of Portersville 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.

Our Portersville PA Customers Rave About Our Top-Notch Staff & Service:

“We are very satisfied with the outcome of the S.W.A.T. Radon Mitigation System. Our installer (Kyle) was prompt and professionally proficient. At the start of the installation process, we opted for the 3-in. x 4-in. gutter style exterior riser/stack; a good decision. The 3×4 riser profile is barely detectable from the sidewalk or road. One suggestion I offer: the sump crock cover is caulked/sealed to prevent the escape of RADON vapor/gas which hampers our biannual testing and flushing of the sump pump system. One option is to install a hose bib connection and secure it to the crock cover. That way the home owner only has to connect a water (hose) source, open the valve, flush the sump system to ensure it is operating properly, then close and remove. We are very satisfied. FHK” – P. Ferreira, Portersville

“The installer I had was awesome and very knowledgeable. ” – W. Wagoner, Portersville
