RCS Case Studies: Radon Mitigation
We recently recieved a call from a concerned home owner about high radon levels in her home in Apollo, PA 15613. She recently did a home charcol test from Alpha Energy Labs and her radon reading was 28 (pCi/L) In her basement and 24 (pCi/L) upstairs. Jr. Our Radon specialist went to her home to give her a free estimate of a radon mitigation system.
The US EPA has set an action level of 4 pCi/L. At or above this level of radon, the EPA recommends you take corrective measures to reduce your exposure to radon gas. That is where Jr. Comes in. He was able to set a time with the concerned homeowner to install a Radon Mitigation System in the home to lower the levels of Radon to an acceptable level 4 pCi/L or below. The concerned homeowner will do a post-test to make sure the levels are where they need to be and that the Radon Mitigation System does not need another suction point.
