Most house and building owners in Riva MD feel relatively safe in their homes. Generally, air pollution is not a problem in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. However, radon gas is a significant problem in our community and is the single greatest health threat to Riva MD families. Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that results from the breakdown of radioactive uranium, thorium and radium. Contrary to popular belief, radon can invade older and newer homes alike. 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 Riva MD. The widespread prevalence of these substances means that radon gas is an issue faced by many home and commercial property owners. SWAT Radon Mitigation fixes hundreds of systems that were improperly installed. Be sure to hire a qualified contractor when dealing with a radon problem in your home.

Radon Testing & Mitigation in Riva MD Homes

Radon testing is of utmost importance to ensure the safety of your home and your loved ones. Every home should be tested for radon exposure, as elevated levels can pose serious health risks. Take action today and learn more about the importance of radon testing by visiting the CDC’s website.

Without testing, most Riva 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 Riva MD 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 Riva, Maryland 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 Riva MD Radon Mitigation Systems are Very Common.

Due to radon’s radioactive characteristics and the serious health problems associated with long-term radon exposure, Riva property owners should take immediate steps to mitigate even moderate levels of radon gas in their buildings. According to Shawnelle Patel, radiation exposure causes more fatalities every year than any other environmental pollutant. “Some researchers in the scientific community believe that radon gas exposure could lead to diseases outside of lung cancer. Examples include brain cancer, lukemia, and breast cancer.”

At SWAT Environmental of Riva MD, 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.

In Riva Maryland, SWAT Environmental engineers and installs systems that are suitable for use in buildings with slab foundations, crawl spaces and basements alike. Our comprehensive mitigation services include diagnostic testing and trouble-shooting existing systems that malfunction or fail.

“Studies show that radon can enter a home via cracks and other small openings in its foundation. For this reason, it might be a good idea to find ways to improve ventilation and overall airflow, which can move the toxic air back outside rather than having it linger around inside the home.” If you’re concerned about radon gas in your Riva MD home or commercial property, contact SWAT Environmental to learn more about our available mitigation measures and to schedule a free, no-obligation price quote right away.
