ELEVATED RADON LEVELS FOUND IN A HOME SHOULD BE NO REASON FOR PANIC

Radon can be reduced! Much like any other problem that can be present in a house, such as a leaky roof, or a water drainage concern, a radon reduction system can be installed and successfully lower high radon levels. In fact, out of all the potential problems a home may have, radon is one of the easiest to discover and fix!

Radon gas can enter a home in many ways and does so without being detected because we cannot sense it. Radon is a naturally occurring odorless gas than can’t be seen, often times accumulating in dangerous levels inside homes without notice. The only way to know if your home is safe from radon gas is to have your home tested.

HOW EXPENSIVE ARE THESE RADON SYSTEMS TO INSTALL AND OPERATE?

In some cases trying to estimate the cost of a radon mitigation system can be very difficult. Often times we need to look at the property in person in order to give an accurate quote.

A reduction system consists of plastic pipe connected to the soil either through a hole in a slab, via a sump lid connection, or beneath a plastic sheet in a crawl space. Attached to the pipe is a quiet, continuously operating fan that discharges the radon outdoors.

Typical installation cost: $600 – $1,500 (dependent on many variables)

  • Average operating cost: $3.00/month

  • Expected life span of fan: 11 years

  • Fan replacement cost: $145-$300

  • Periodic maintenance: None

dangerous levels of radon can be found in commercial buildings

We have done radon mitigation and radon testing for commercial buildings including office buildings, churches, warehouses, and apartments. We’ve also installed radon systems in many daycare facilities around West Michigan. Some people would be surprised to know all of the different places that we’ve installed radon systems. We have even mitigated some commercial buildings of other gases besides radon gas.

Radon systems work well to meet the needs of mitigating other kinds of gases, not just radon. We have installed many radon systems in commercial buildings, but not for the purpose of lowering radon gas levels. These radon systems work well to ventilate other gases that can permeate up threw the soil into structures, some of these gases that are either natural or from pollution can often times be flammable. This is a major concern because utility rooms are a common place for furnaces and other combustion units.

We have experience working along side construction contractors, developers, and architects designing routes for radon mitigation systems. We always stay up to date with the industries latest radon codes and guidelines, we also follow state and local building codes.

We operate with ethics, and stand behind our work in every way. We often sub-out some of the work within our own radon mitigation’s to trusted local professionals, for things relating to electrical , concrete, and roofing for example.

Some people may not think that radon gas can pose a problem inside commercial buildings, but it’s important to know that radon can be found in almost any structure.

Almost all structures including commercial buildings have direct contact with the earths surface is which is fundamental for construction. All commercial buildings should be tested for elevated levels of radon that can accumulate in any situation if there’s direct contact with the earth.

is there any homes that don’t have radon?

ANSWER: There’s NO such thing as NO RADON. Radon is everywhere because it’s naturally occurring. The average level of radon contained in outdoor air is 0.4 pCi/L. Radon gas becomes a problem when it accumulates within a home or structure and reaches a level of 2 pCi/L or greater even thought the typical call to action level for mitigation is currently set at 4.0 pCi/L.

 New home concept

Test for radon before you buy

To make sure the home your’e thinking about purchasing does’t have high levels of radon gas, you should have the home tested. If time is an issue which often times it is concerning most issues with real estate and radon, short term radon tests can be completed in a matter of days. Long term tests take considerably longer and aren’t typically administered for real estate radon testing. A simple and fairly inexpensive do-it-yourself short term radon test kit can be purchased at local hardware stores for around $15 dollars, and in some cases local health departments offer free radon test kits.

For real estate transactions it’s essential that radon tests are conducted by licensed professionals and all requirements for testing are followed during the actual radon testing period of time. This means the occupants of a home that is for sale or anyone that may be entering a vacant home during the time when a radon test is active is made aware of the requirements of not compromising the testing environment.

need a radon mitigation system installed to sell your home?

We know most things involved with real estate move fast, that’s why we are easy to work with and get the job done before the closing date. Remember, homes that are found to have high levels of radon gas can be mitigated and almost always reduced to levels below 4 pCi/L. If the home someone is looking to buy is confirmed to have elevated levels of radon gas at or above 4 pCi/L, it is recommended the home be mitigated soon as possible before moving in.

If you’re a realtor/real estate agent, homeowner, or prospective home buyer it is important to take radon gas serious during a real estate deal. homes being purchased with elevated radon levels should have radon mitigation and testing written into the purchase agreement to assure the radon problem is resolved.
