Where Does Radon Come From?
Radon is a radioactive gas that naturally occurs in the Earth’s crust. The gas is produced when uranium, thorium, and radium, which are all naturally found in the Earth, begin to decay. Radon is colorless, odorless, and tasteless, making it virtually undetectable without specialized equipment.
The gas can seep through the soil and enter buildings, homes, and workplaces through cracks in foundations, gaps around pipes, or other openings. Once inside, it can accumulate and spread in enclosed spaces, especially in basements and lower levels, causing harm to the health of any occupants who breathe it in.
The most serious, and common, issue presented by radon is lung cancer. When you breathe radon in, it releases radiation into your lungs that can lead to serious damage.
What To Do If You Suspect Elevated Radon Levels
If you believe your home might have elevated radon levels, or you’re concerned about the possibility of radon exposure, taking proactive steps is essential for ensuring the safety of your indoor environment. Rescon Basement Solutions provides radon testing services that can determine whether or not your home is dealing with high radon levels.
If either short or long-term testing reveals elevated radon, we provide radon mitigation system installation to reduce and control radon levels.
What is a Radon Mitigation System?
Radon mitigation systems are designed to collect radon and push it outside of the home, where it can dissipate safely into the outdoor atmosphere. These systems play a crucial role in maintaining healthy indoor air quality by preventing radon gas from accumulating to dangerous levels.
The main components of a radon mitigation system include:
- Suction Points: These are strategically placed within the building’s foundation, typically in the lowest livable areas such as basements or crawl spaces. Suction points serve as entryways for radon gas to enter the system.
- Ventilation Fan: A specialized fan creates negative pressure beneath the building’s foundation. This negative pressure effectively draws radon gas from the soil and prevents it from infiltrating the living spaces.
- Pipes or Ducts: Pipes or ducts connect the suction points to the ventilation fan and direct the collected radon gas away from the interior of the These pathways lead the gas to a safe outdoor location, ensuring it disperses harmlessly.
