Mitigation System Installation in Easy Steps

Lifetime Radon Mitigation is providing its services in Wisconsin for more than two decades. We are working according to all the rules and regulations of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and National Radon Safety Board (NRSB). According to EPA instructions, the level of any gas above the required value can be dangerous and can be fatal. The emission of radon gas over the required value can be dangerous and it is also not good for the structures of places. Radon mitigation systems can be of various types depending on the conditions i.e. location, assembly installation etc. According to EPA, if the level of radon is above 4pCi/L or above then it should be mitigated and we are at your service to do that.

Radon mitigation systems installation involve hosing assembly, venting system and fan installation. There are various procedures to install radon mitigators in houses. All the systems are installed after detailed inspection of required place to understand conditions and to judge that what system will be preferable for your place. Our mitigation process involves sub-slab depressurization, drain-tile depressurization, crawl space depressurization and block wall depressurization. The installation system firstly involves the drilling process. This drilling provides pathway for radon gas to move upward. Drilling is done with heavy drill bits and process takes time because of its vigorous nature. After the drilling is done, the next step is the installation of indoor piping assembly. The pipes are installed along with elbows to provide a proper channel to release radon gas to outer environment. The area around the drilled hole is completely sealed to dodge the outer exposure of radon gas and proper suction for the fan. After the indoor installation, next step is the installation of the fan. Fan produces the suction pressure and is compulsory to induce the gas from bottom and to release it to atmosphere. After installation of fan in the assembly, next step is the outdoor venting system. A piping assembly is attached at the outer end of the fan and is directed straight above. Radon mitigation installation process is one-time investment to ensure the long-term life span of the place and safety of living beings. If the mitigator system is not installed it can be eventually dangerous to human as radon gas causes cancer and to building itself.

After complete installation of the radon mitigation system, the system testing is done timely to ensure the proper working of mitigation process. The testing process involves the testing of fan working, inspection for leakages in pipes and other considering other aspects. Cost of the radon system varies from $1500 – $2500. The Cap on the outer end of the drain pipe is not installed as if debris or water or any other material water enter from drain the fan has capacity to draw them back outward. Also, in winter season the cap can cause the blockage of gas to go out and because of low temperature there can be freezing of the gas which will act as hindrance in the gas flow.
