Radon Mitigation – Fixing a Radon Problem the Right WayPosted by: Damon Webster | Posted on: May 6, 2021
If the household level of radon is 4 picocuries per liter or more, the EPA recommends installing a radon reduction system (sometimes called radon removal).
Choosing a radon mitigation service :
A qualified fault control company is the best choice for installing a radon reduction system.In many countries, these companies or individuals are certified by government regulators such as DEP (Ministry of Environmental Protection).

If this is not the case in your country then you should look for a quality qualifier that is certified by the NEHA (National Environmental Health Association). When choosing a radon control company, ask their status or the NEHA certification number if they offer a free review and warranty on the system.
Typically, the mitigation company visits the home to determine the best system configuration and fan size for the type of foundation on which the house is built. Then the estimated system cost can be determined. Once you have chosen a contractor, wait 1-2 days for installation.
Life after Radon Reduction – It is recommended that the radon reduction system be tested after installation. The test can be performed after the system has been running for 24 hours or more.
The short-term test is usually used for the first test. In some cases, a contractor's assessment may include retesting by a professional company or a radon testing kit. You can also search online to get more information about radon mitigation.
