Residential Radon Mitigation
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates 1 in 4 houses in the Massachusetts area has indoor radon concentrations exceeding the 4 pCi/L threshold. This exposure has long - term consequences, but there is a solution. Radon mitigation via sub-slab depressurization is a tested and reliable method of reducing radon levels. Contact SWAT today to learn more about mitigating radon.
How Radon Enters a Home
Radon naturally occurs in soil as a decay product of uranium and thorium - two of the most prevalent radioactive elements in the world. In its gaseous form, radon enters a home via cracks and perforations within a foundation, a result of the air pressure differences between the earth surrounding the home and the basement itself.
The most effective solution is sub-slab depressurization (SSD). SSD utilizes a fan to create a sub-slab vacuum, forcing the radon to enter a pipe, which vents above the home, at which point it dissipates to levels well below the EPA threshold of 4 pCi/L.
