WAYS TO LOWER RADON LEVELS IN YOUR HOME PRIOR TO HAVING MITIGATION.
How Does Radon enter my house??
RADON ENTERS YOUR HOUSE THROUGH SEVERAL DIFFERENT WAYS:
Cracks in solid floors.
Cracks in walls.
Gaps in suspended floors.
Gaps around service pipes.
Cavities inside of the wall.
The water supply.
Open sump pit.
How can I stop it!!!
THERE ARE FEW THINGS THAT YOU CAN DO AS A HOMEOWNER TO HELP KEEP RADON OUT:
Seal any accessible cracks, gaps, or cavities.
Install a radon specific sump cover.
Lay heavy duty polyethylene sheets over the soil (usually in crawlspaces) and seal the edges together and to the foundation to hinder gas transfer.
*Test your home regularly to make sure that you are not at risk*
