Most house and building owners in Woodburn OR feel relatively safe in their homes. Generally, air pollution is not a problem in Marion County, Oregon. However, radon gas is a significant problem in our community and is the single greatest health threat to Woodburn OR families. Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that results from the breakdown of radioactive uranium, thorium and radium. Radon can be found in certain lakes, rivers, and reservoirs. 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 Woodburn OR. The widespread prevalence of these substances means that radon gas is an issue faced by many home and commercial property owners. Most radioactive elements are solid materials like uranium that are only dangerous if you ingest it or spend a lot of time touching it. Meanwhile, radon is a gas that anyone can easily inhale.

Here is What Some of Our Radon Mitigation Customers from the Woodburn Area are Saying About Our Services:

“Quick and efficient” – N. Bunker, Woodburn

“My installer was a young man named Tim who apparently was in town from St. Louis, MO to assist with the MI workload! With me not having a clue about radon & the related system, Tim did a great job of educating me on the process and what the system would actually do for us! He then went on to do a great job with the installation. He explained to me what he was going to do both inside and out my home. We had a good discussion about system location & his recommendation was the right choice. With the completed system, I noticed the PVC piping went straight up just beyond the roof line. I was concerned with future heavy rains and asked for a 90 degree placed on the top. Tim explained that the constant flow of air exiting the pipe would not allow rain to get, if any, but he did accommodate my request nonetheless. I appreciated him listening to me. While I was disappointed that I needed a radon system to begin with, my entire experience with the SWAT Environmental was very good and Tim, the installer exceeded my expectations! Respectfully submitted! John D Murphy” – C. Mcfadden, Woodburn

Radon Testing & Mitigation in Woodburn OR Homes

Without testing, most Woodburn 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 Woodburn OR 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 Woodburn, Oregon 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.

More Reviews from Happy SWAT Environmental Customers:

“Truly impeccable service, start to finish. ” – S. Mcconnell, Woodburn

“Yesterday, your technician installed a radon reduction system at my home. I would like you to know that he was great to work with, showed up when he said he would and knew the radon subject well. The installation was a bit tricky and he was able to fit the outlet pipe within a very small joist space where it was out of the way. A very nice job and I am thoroughly happy how the work was done. Thank you!” – S. Mancuso, Woodburn

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

Due to radon’s radioactive characteristics and the serious health problems associated with long-term radon exposure, Woodburn property owners should take immediate steps to mitigate even moderate levels of radon gas in their buildings. According to Monico Coleman, radiation exposure causes more fatalities every year than any other environmental pollutant. “Just like carbon monoxide detectors, Rn detectors are worth investing in since Rn is a colorless and odorless gas that would otherwise go unnoticed.  And they are not too expensive, typically running from about $174 to $220.”

At SWAT Environmental of Woodburn OR, 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.
