Pittsburgh Radon Mitigation
Radon mitigation is the process of lowering the amount of Radon in a home or building. If your home has a high level of Radon, don’t worry, our Radon professionals have installed hundreds of Radon remediation systems in Pittsburgh and West Virginia. Our certified and trained Radon specialists are trained and licensed to get your home under the EPA recommended action level of 4.0.
Not every Radon removal system is the same and the type of system your home needs is based on several factors such as size, age, and soil conditions. The Radon mitigation system your neighbor has may not be the same system you will need in your home. Our team will walk you through exactly where the best location is to get your home’s Radon levels as low as possible.
How Do Radon Remediation Systems Work?
The goal of any type of Radon mitigation system is to create a depressurized zone underneath the foundation of your home. The system works by having the Radon fan pull air from underneath your home up and out above your roof line, away from your family. The foundation your home sits on will determine the type of reduction system you will need. At Home Radon Pros, we take the time to seal all cracks in your foundation to ensure your system pulls as much air as possible – leading to lower levels of Radon. Once your system is installed, there is nothing else you need to worry about.
How Long Does Radon Removal Take?
When your Radon removal system is installed, your Radon levels will begin to lower as soon as the next day. The time to install a Radon system can vary depending on the type and size of a home. On average, most remediation systems can be installed in less than a day, typically around 5 hours. Our Radon professionals are trained and have experience installing systems in different styles of homes, businesses, and other commercial buildings. Protecting families in Pittsburgh, and surrounding areas, is a top priority for us, so we will work with you to get a system scheduled for you as soon as possible
Radon Mitigation Systems
Sub-Slab Radon Mitigation System
More than 90% of Radon mitigation systems are sub-slab systems. This system is used when your home sits on a concrete slab. Our team will drill a hole in the slab, and remove 15-20 gallons of dirt underneath and use PVC to go from the hole to the outside of your home where a Radon fan will be used to pull air from under the home and above the roof.
Passive Radon System
Newly constructed homes in Pittsburgh are typically built with passive Radon systems. These system DO NOT have a Radon fan, but are merely PVC piping that goes from the basement through your home and out the roof. Unfortunately, these systems are not typically installed correctly by home builders and are often not effective even when they are. Our team can easily activate these systems with the addition of a Radon fan in your attic.
Sub-Membrane Radon Remediation System
Sub membrane Radon removal systems are installed when a home has exposed dirt or a crawl space. This involves covering the exposed area with a membrane and sealant to prevent air from escaping. PVC piping is then installed under the membrane and attached to a Radon fan outside the home or building. Crawl space Radon systems are typically the most expensive.
