Every year, thousands of people in the United States fall ill due to the dangerous gas radon. In fact, the EPA estimates that nearly one out of every 15 homes has elevated levels of radon. Fortunately, there is something you can do to protect your family from this invisible threat: install a radon mitigation system. Radon is an odorless, colorless gas that is created by the natural breakdown of uranium in soil and rocks. It’s found all over the world. Radon enters homes through cracks in walls or foundations, gaps around pipes or drains, or even through dirt floors. The biggest risk comes when there are high levels of radon concentration inside a home—which can happen if there’s no ventilation or if air isn’t exchanged between indoor and outdoor air regularly. If you suspect that your home may have elevated levels of radon, it’s important to get it tested as soon as possible so you can take action before it becomes a health hazard for your family. A radon mitigation system is designed to reduce the level of radon inside your home by ventilating away any airborne particles. The most effective type of system uses a fan-powered sub-slab depressurization system which pulls air away from beneath your foundation and exhausts it outside through a pipe connected to your roof or wall. Don’t hesitate – invest in peace of mind today by getting your home tested for elevated levels of radon. Contact Standard Water today.
