What is Radon?

Radon is an odorless, colorless gas derived from the naturally-occurring decay of uranium found in all soils that is strongly linked to lung cancer. It will typically move up through the ground and into the air through cracks and other gaps in the foundation of your home or business. The exact amount of radon present at your property depends on the lands' unique soil chemistry, which varies from place to place. Radon levels in soil range widely from nearly zero to several hundreds of pCi/L (picocuries per liter). Your residential or commercial space can then trap this radon indoors, causing a buildup that will need to be adequately mitigated. The amount of radon that escapes from the soil and enters your home or business is dependent on the weather, soil porosity, soil moisture, and ventilation.

Why is Radon Mitigation Important?

Any building, no matter how old or new, can fall victim to high radon concentrations. Professional radon mitigation is the only way to reduce radon levels within your home or business. If proper mitigation is not carried out, you run the risk of exposing yourself, your family, and your employees to high radon levels. To keep everyone that visits your property safe, it's best to rely on our professional team to mitigate this harmful soil gas through our superior processes and systems that rid your property of excess radon.
