Radon Remediation & Planning

By Casey Navarro Subscribe to RSS | May 4th 2012 | Views:

Present all over the earth, radon is a hazardous and naturally occurring gas that can lead to serious health issues to those exposed to elevated levels. Being odorless, tasteless and invisible, it is difficult to test the presence of this radioactive gas in your home. Radon usually enters the home through the soil, and finds its way inside through the wall cracks, pipe penetrations, crevices, concrete pores, etc. Once it enters your home, it becomes concentrated, especially during the winter months when the doors and windows remain shut most of the time. Exposure to radon gas over a certain level will cause serious health hazards to the inhabitants of a home, or employees of a business.

The Overall Process

The presence of radon can be tested through radon testing. Several pest control systems specialize in methods to eliminate the presence of carcinogenic levels of radon gas in your home, as well. After radon testing, radon mitigation is recommended to carefully decrease the level of gas from a home, or business. The pest control systems employ licensed radon experts trained according to the highest industry standards to do radon testing and install the appropriate mitigation systems. They do free in-house inspections and consultations to formulate and customize the appropriate mediating steps to fix the problem.

The Risk

In all the causes leading to lung cancer in the United States, radon stands second. The EPA recommends homes complete radon testing ever two years. This can ensure the radon levels remain below the danger zone and prevent the risk of serious health complications.

Radon Testing

You must first seek the help of Radon Inspection Specialists who can service areas, such as, Knoxville, TN and are certified to perform these tests properly. Radon Testing usually consists of 3 steps. The test is called a CRM test, which is proven to be the most accurate short-term test for radon detection.

1. Upon fixing an appointment with the pest control, a Radon Gas Measurement Expert will visit your home to install the Continuous Radon Monitor or CRM in your home.

2. The CRM is installed in an appropriate location in your home for testing radon levels. The expert technician will educate you on the present status of the radon levels and will recommend ways to lower them. You will also be informed about why the expert chose the particular location to install the CRM.

3. The Radon Gas Measurement Expert will schedule an appointment for a follow-up visit to check the test results. A printer will be connected to the CRM and the results will be printed out for you.

Possible Contingencies

Determining that the radon levels are carcinogenic, you will be advised to proceed with applying radon mitigation methods at home. At your request, the representative can customize a proposal for your home and give you an estimate of the costs involved.

Do Not Worry about the Payment

Some pest control companies for radon testing in Tennessee and radon mitigation in areas like Maryville, TN arrange financing for those who do not have enough immediate income to undertake the task. This allows for individuals to provide a safe environment even though it might not be initially affordable.
