You should fix your home if your radon level is higher than the Canadian Guideline of 200 Becquerels per metre cubed (Bq/m³). Reducing the amount of radon in your home is easy and the techniques used by certified radon specialists to lower radon levels are effective and can save lives.
Radon levels in most homes can be reduced by more than 80% at the same cost as other common home repairs such as replacing the furnace or air conditioner, making it an affordable fix to save your health.
Radon mitigation is the process used to reduce radon gas in breathing zones of occupied buildings or to remove radon from water supplies. Radon is a significant contributor to environmental radioactivity and poses a serious health risk if not removed.
Long-term exposure to radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking and is the leading cause of lung cancer for people who have never smoked. As radon breaks down, it forms radioactive particles that can get lodged into your lung tissue as you breathe. Radon particles then release energy that can damage your lung cells. When lung cells are damaged, they have the potential to result in cancer. Mitigation reduces the risk of radon gas damaging potentially causing lung issues.
got mold?™ aims to restore healthy Indoor Air Quality to those who discover radon in their homes through our professional mitigation services and to ensure the health of you and the people you care about.
Mitigation of radon gas in the air is accomplished through ventilation. Radon is either collected below a concrete floor slab or a membrane on the ground level or by increasing the air changes per hour in the building. Treatment systems using aeration or activated charcoal are also available to remove radon from domestic water supplies to complete radon mitigation and restore healthy drinking water.
The most common radon mitigation methods are active soil depressurization (ASD) and mechanical ventilation (MV). ASD is applicable to most buildings since radon usually enters from the soil and rock underneath and Mechanical Ventilation (MV) is used for mitigation when the indoor radon is emitted from the building materials.
A less common approach to radon mitigation works efficiently by reducing air pressures within cavities of exterior and demising walls where radon emitting from building materials, most often concrete blocks are collected and stored.
