Are Your Radon Levels Safe?

About Mitigation:
A radon mitigation system consists of a vent pipe(s) and fan(s) that are installed in the lowest level of your property.  It can be installed in the interior or exterior, but must extend up past the roof line to be effective. The system prevents radon from entering the property from below the concrete floor and from outside the foundation. After the system is installed a follow-up radon text is completed within 72 hours to ensure the levels have been reduced below the EPA recommended level of less than 4.0 pCi/L. It is also recommended you test your property on an annual basis to ensure the radon mitigation system is working properly. You must ensure you are contracting with a licensed Radon Tester and Radon Mitigator.
