Existing Homes Radon Mitigation

EXISTING HOMES SUB-SLAB

This is the most effective/common method. First you start off by conducting communication tests to see if you have sufficient air flow beneath the concrete slab. After all diagnostics are performed you can determine what size fan you need, if multiple suction points are needed, and placement of venting. Piping is installed in the least obstrusive way possible.

 

SUMP AND DRAIN TILE

This is another very effective method. If you have drain tile routed to a sump pit this is a good way to suction the air out from beneath the basement slab. A specialized sump lid is retro fitted for a tight seal to prevent air loss and entry for radon. Allowing suction to channel air through the drain tile and out through the discharge pipe. Drain tile can also be tapped into on the exterior of foundation/footing.

CRAWL SPACE

With a crawl space you use the same concept as the other methods but you are suctioning air beneath heavy duty plastic, if it's a dirt/gravel base, the plastic is caulked around the perimeter up onto the wall at a minimum of 12". Making sure all the seams are overlapped and sealed using an appropriate caulk. If you have multiple crawl spaces then each one is treated as its own. If any asbestos or hazardous materials are present it is up to the homeowner to have it professionally removed before installation.

Once you discover you have radon levels exceeding the EPA action level of 4 picocuries per Liter (4.0 pCi/L), you might think you’ve lived with it for this long, so how much could a little longer hurt? You might also sleep under an X-ray and microwave your food with the door open.

Once you've tested your home for radon and discover that your place of refuge and comfort could be slowly poisoning you, the feeling disturbing. You need to get this taken care of right away. The dangers of radon exposure are too great to ignore - and are based on fact, not fiction. This odorless, tastelss gas is deadly, even though it doesn't imediately produce detectable symptoms.

The EPA and Surgeon General’s office estimate more than 21,000 Americans die every year from lung cancer related to radon. 

BASEMENTS, CRAWLSPACES AND WALLS ARE SUBJECT TO RADON ACCUMULATION

Crawlspaces, basements and even the walls of your home are ideal areas for this deadly gas to permeate. David Cook's Radon Services will work to seal the basement or crawlspace and vent this gas through the new ventilation system and away from your home.

RADON MITIGATION IS AN AFFORDABLE WAY TO PREVENT LUNG CANCER DUE TO RADON EXPOSURE 

Installing a radon mitigation system in your home is one of the most affordable ways to reduce your family’s risk of lung cancer.

David Cook's Radon Services provides radon testing, which, if unsafe radon levels are detected, will include our recommendations for radon mitigation, based on your home's construction (and other factors). Our installation process can be completed in a few hours. 

WHAT IS A RADON MITIGATION SYSTEM?

Simply put, radon systems perform sub-slab depressurization. By putting in a radon mitigation system, the pressure that builds in the soil beneath your home is released via a PVC vent pipe, which reduces air pressure beneath the slab. This in turn prevents the gases from seeping through cracks and the slab.

RADON MITIGATION SUMP COVERS

The PVC pipe that vents the radon gas out of your home is generall placed into the ground where your sump pump is. This pipe needs to extend below the basement floor. The pipe is then routed to an outside wall to the roof where it can be released into the atmosphere (with new construction, the pipes will be hidden within the walls). A fan is installed to help move the air through the pipe.

EPA RECOMMENDS RE-TESTING EVERY TWO YEARS TO ENSURE THE RADON SYSTEM'S EFFECTIVENESS 

Average Cost of System

A system can cost as little as $800 and rarely exceeds $1,400. It all depends on the soil beneath the house and the layout of the home. 

We install two types of systems. An exterior system, or an interior system; whichever suits the needs of the homeowner. 

We serve all of southeast Wisconsin and northern Illinois.
