Radon Mitigation Denver Will Solve Your Radon Problem
The second leading cause of lung cancer in Colorado is radon gas. Soil and rocks contain deposits of uranium. The degradation of the uranium releases radon gas into the atmosphere. This results in a very consistent outdoor radon level of about 0.4pCi/L. Radon Mitigation Denver CO is dedicated to reducing the risk of radon.
The medical community was alerted to the radon cancer risk by the high incidence of lung cancer in uranium miners. Uranium mines had an extremely high concentration of radon.
Radon Mitigation Denver is the Answer to your Radon Problems
Because of the temperature difference, air pressure inside a home is generally lower than that of outdoor air. In many areas of Colorado, radon is present in the soil beneath homes and buildings. The radon in the soil tends to escape into the dwelling through cracks in basement walls and floors. In houses without a basement, radon can also accumulate in poorly ventilated crawlspaces. Furnaces and vent fans produce an even greater negative pressure in the house. Radon Mitigation Denver Colorado will conduct an extensive survey of your home to determine the sources of radon infiltration.
Radon Mitigation Denver Uses the Most-advanced Mitigation Techniques
Radon Mitigation Denver CO employs only highly-trained and certified technicians. They are trained in the latest techniques of reduction of radon in your home.
To reduce radon infiltration into the basement, Radon Mitigation Denver will patch any visible cracks. A radon exhaust fan is also usually needed. A four-inch plastic pipe will be inserted through a hole drilled through the basement floor. A powerful radon exhaust fan will be installed in the pipe, probably at an outdoor location. This fan will create a negative pressure under the concrete slab and exhaust the radon above the roof level of the house. Radon Mitigation Denver Colorado guarantees your satisfaction.
Radon Mitigation Denver Will Determine the Radon Level in Your Home
While radon is unsafe at any level, the EPA recommends that average radon house levels of 4 pCi/L or higher should be reduced. Radon Mitigation Denver CO suggests that tests between 2.0 and 4.0 pCi/L should also be reduced. A test of 2 to 90 days is considered short term. Long term is over 90 days. A test canister that samples air in the room is mailed to a lab for testing. These tests determine how much reduction is required. Radon Mitigation Denver can conduct these tests for you. Radon Mitigation Denver Colorado can reduce your radon concentrations as much as 99 percent.
If radon from your crawlspace is leaking into your home, Radon Mitigation Denver will cover the area with a thick plastic sheet to collect and vent the radon to the outside. In warm climates, it may be possible to provide natural ventilation to the crawlspace to alleviate the problem. Radon Mitigation Denver CO can install a better ventilation system for you.
