Does Your Home Have High Radon Levels?

Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among nonsmokers and the second most common cause of lung cancer among the general population. The Surgeon General and EPA recommend testing for Radon and decreasing Radon levels in homes with levels above 4.0 Picocuries per Liter of air (pCi/L). Even moderately elevated levels of Radon pose a risk because there is no safe level of radon. If your homes radon levels are confirmed to be at or above 4.0 pCi/L ACT NOW!

Radon Mitigation FAQs

Why Must Radon Be Vented Into The Air Above My Home’s Roof?2021-11-01T08:07:16-04:00

Radon gas is approximately 7.5 times heavier than air. However, it is a noble gas with no chemical affinity but is easily influenced by air movements and pressure.

In a house with forced-air heating and cooling, radon gas can easily be distributed throughout the entire dwelling. When radon gas is discharged via a radon mitigation system above the roof, the radon concentration falls off dramatically with distance from the point of discharge. The radon gas concentration approaches background levels at 3-4 feet from the discharge point.

EPA disallowed ground-level discharge of radon primarily because of the potential for re-entrainment of the gas into the house and because of the possibility of children being exposed to high radon levels. In addition, the concentration of radon gas at the discharge point can be tens of thousands of picocuries per minute.

How Much Can A Radon Mitigation System Cost?2021-11-01T08:07:17-04:00

You have tested your home for radon, but now what?

If you; have tested your home for radon and confirmed that you had elevated radon levels, 4 picocuries per liter in the air (pCi/L) or higher, our guidance can help you:

  • Select a qualified radon mitigation contractor to reduce the radon levels in your home.
  • Determine an appropriate radon reduction method.
  • Maintain your radon reduction system.

Radon reduction systems work. Some radon reduction systems can reduce radon levels in your home by up to 99 percent.

Most homes can be fixed for about the exact cost as other common home repairs. However, your costs may vary depending on the size and design of your home and which radon reduction methods are needed.

How Do I Know If My Radon Mitigation System Is Working Properly?2021-11-01T08:07:17-04:00

There are several ways to lower radon levels in your home. Some techniques prevent radon from entering your home, while others reduce radon levels after it has entered.

EPA generally recommends methods that prevent the entry of radon. Soil suction, for example, prevents radon from entering your home by drawing the radon from below the house and venting it through a pipe, or pipes, to the air above the house, where it is quickly diluted.

Similar to a furnace or chimney, radon reduction systems need some occasional maintenance. It would be best to look at your warning device regularly to make sure the system is working correctly.

Fans may last for five years or more (manufacturer warranties tend not to exceed five years) and may then need to be repaired or replaced. Replacing a fan will cost around $200 – $350, including parts and labor. It is a good idea to retest your home at least every two years to be sure radon levels remain low.

How Does Radon Get into a House?2021-10-05T11:36:18-04:00

There are many ways Radon can get into your house including drains, sump pumps, basement floor cracks, basement wall cracks construction joints, loose pipe fittings and exposed soil. Radon might also enter the air of a home from well water.

Because radon is a gas, it can easily spread from the ground into the air in a home. The main method in which radon enters a home is through the basement floor including crawl spaces.

Can Radon Cause Lung Cancer?2021-10-05T11:36:18-04:00

Yes. The EPA estimates that over 20,000 preventable deaths in the U.S. can be attributed to exposure to radon decay products. That is twice the amount of drunk driving fatalities each year.

Alpha particles released by radon decay products are the main driver in damage to healthy lung tissue. Smoking combined with radon exposure is especially risky.

What Is Radon?2021-10-05T11:36:19-04:00

You can’t see, smell, or taste radon. However, it still might be an issue inside your house. Radon is a gas atom, and it features a half-life of only about 4 days. Radon gas is completely natural and it forms during the decay of uranium-238, an element that is naturally present in our soil.

I cannot say enough positive about our experience with Radon Delete. They were recommended by a friend who had a great experience with them. They were knowledgeable, helpful, professional, and friendly. They stayed in touch and willingly answered all our questions. They did a professional job with cheerful attitudes. We could not be happier with their service.

Brenda M., Lexington, KY

I cannot speak more highly of Wilson and his team. I had a difficult situation with a large crawl and I wanted only one system. Other radon companies kept saying I needed two systems. Wilson and his crew made it work. I went from radon levels of upper 40s to 0.5. I had about 5 companies come through and Wilson and Radon Delete with his HVAC experience and mechanical design training were far and away the most qualified!

James H., Lexington, KY

We had a fantastic experience with Radon Delete. The entire process from quote through install and follow up was seamless. Great customer service accompanied by a high level of craftsmanship is hard to find these days and these guys outperformed expectations at every turn. They were very thoughtful on how to make the system look as atheistically pleasing as possible and our radon levels were cut down dramatically after just a few hours of running the system.
