DIY Radon Mitigation

Radon Removal Expenses

With over 30 years of experience installing radon mitigation systems, we have seen many homeowners try to install systems themselves. And, we have fixed more do-it-yourself (DIY) installation errors than you can imagine. We don’t recommend installing a radon mitigation system on your own. It can be incredibly dangerous, especially if you don’t understand the condition of your home’s foundation. Our techs complete a rigorous training process to state mandated certification and licensure in radon mitigation installation and service. Put our experience to work for you.

We understand that radon removal costs money, and as with other home or commercial property expenses, you look for ways to cut costs. But, we must warn you – allowing a radon threat to go untreated is incredibly dangerous. Radon mitigation systems are created to remove a hazardous gas that compromises your health. You need to hire a professional. Trying to install one of these systems on your own may cause more damage to your property and thus increase the expense in the long run. Installing these systems can also be very dangerous if you aren’t experienced. Please contact SWAT Environmental for a free quote: 1-800-667-2366.

DIY Testing

If you’re looking to cut a cost, consider purchasing your own test kit. You can purchase a test kit at your local hardware store or online. There are two different types of radon testing kids: long-term and short-term. Learn why radon testing is so important, and determine which type of test kit is best for you.

Radon Gas is Dangerous

Reducing the levels of radon gas in your home is critical to maintaining your health. Radon gas is odorless and many refer to it as the silent killer. Radon exposure can cause serious health risks, including lung cancer. Hire someone experienced to install your radon mitigation system and don’t try to do it yourself.
