RADON MITIGATION DENVER

Radon Removal and Radon Mitigation Techniques
Radon is reduced via the installation and operation of a Mitigation System. The first part of a system is a "Collection Zone" and is installed in the lowest level in your home where the Radon enters. We create suction on either: (1) an existing sump pit, (2) a 6 inch hole that we core in your concrete slab, or (3) the soil under a vapor barrier that we place and seal in your crawlspace - or some combination of the three - depending on your home. The second part of the system is the fan. This runs all the time to depressurize the soil under your home and is typically located on the outside of an exterior wall of your home or, occasionally, in the garage. The fan is connected to the Collection Zone via a 4 inch white PVC pipe. The final section is the Exhaust. This vents the radon from the fan to the roofline as dictated by EPA requirements. We have found that when PVC is exposed to the sun and elements, it often stains and yellows. Therefore, at our company, we use 4 inch by 3 inch white aluminum downspout to make the exhaust system as visually appealing as possible. More information on this can be found on our Systems Page.

Radon Testing
Our company typically doesn't perform testing in order to avoid situations where we would face a conflict of interest. However, we provide all our customers with a re-test - that is sent to an independent lab - to verify the functionality of our systems. And, of course, all our systems are guaranteed.

Radon Mitigation Supplies
We use only the highest quality parts and supplies in our systems. From the fans to the membranes to the exhaust we strive of offer the finest systems possible. You can learn more about this on our systems page.

Radon Levels
Determining what radon level is acceptable is a personal choice and we at Radon Safety don't give advice about what you should do. If you feel you have a problem, we will work for you to get it solved. The US EPA advises that you mitigate Radon when average levels are above 4.0 pCi/l (4 picuries per liter - a measure of radiation.) You can find links to the EPA's brochures with more info about this elsewhere on this page.

Radon Mitigation Cost
The cost of Radon Systems varies widely depending on the home and foundation that we are working with. If you call the office at 303-462-5000 and answer about 5 minutes worth of questions, we can email you a custom 4 page proposal with guaranteed pricing within the hour.

Radon Effects and Symptoms
Radon, when inhaled into the lungs in large quantities or over a long period of time, can damage lung tissues. This damage can lead to lung cancer. You can find links to the EPA's brochures with more info about this elsewhere on this page.

Other Ways to Fix Radon and Radon Remediation
While there are a variety of other methods that can assist with mitigating Radon, we find that in our experience, here in Colorado, the methods described above - active soil depressurization - including a collection zone, a fan, and an exhaust are by far the most effective and comprehensive way to solve the problem.
