Minneapolis Radon Mitigation
Radon Mitigation is the process of lowering the levels of radon gas in your home. If your home has high levels of radon, American Radon Mitigation will install a radon mitigation system to get your home to acceptable levels.
Minnesota is the fourth leading state in the country for radon and the entire Midwest region has very high concentrations of the gas in the soil. In fact, radon is so serious that all new homes built in Minnesota and many other states are now required to have at least a passive radon mitigation system installed.
Counties in these areas have a predicted average indoor radon screening level greater than 4pCi/L (picocuries per liter). These areas have the highest potential for dangerous levels of radon.
Counties in these areas have a predicted average indoor radon level between 2 and 4 pCi/L. These areas have a strong potential for dangerous levels of radon.
The risk of lung cancer in children resulting from exposure to radon may be almost twice as high as the risk to adults exposed to the same amount of radon.
Professional Certified Radon Mitigation
Our certified radon contractors have years of experience in construction and know how to craft your system to suite your home.
Give us a call or fill out our free radon mitigation estimate form. We will ask you some questions about your home to get you in the ballpark of the cost. If it makes sense to proceed, we will then schedule a time to visit your home and discuss your options. We will look at your basement, garage and attic to determine what type of radon removal system you need and the best pipe route. Then we will look at some photos and explain the process. We will then listen to a radon fan so you can see how loud it is and show you some of the accessories we offer. A written estimate will be prepared and discussed. If you would like to move forward we require a signed proposal, a check for half down and we’ll schedule an installation date.
Radon Mitigation Systems
The type of radon reduction system that will be most effective for your home will depend on your foundation. In the event your home has a combination of foundation types, several radon mitigation techniques may be required to achieve acceptable radon levels.
Passive Radon Mitigation Systems:
If your home has a basement or slab-on-grade:
Radon levels in these homes are most often best reduced using drain tile depressurization (DTD) or sub-slab depressurization (SSD).
