Duluth MN Removal of Radon Gas

 

Radon infiltration is a growing concern in many U.S. homes.   Radon is a toxic element present in the air of many homes that can be removed or mitigated if carefully addressed. This kind of minor home improvement can be performed when elevated levels of the gas are found within a home.

Radon is a gaseous, highly radioactive element listed in pure form on the Radioactive Table and found naturally all over the world. It is one of nature’s normally occurring radioactive isotopes. Unfortunately, unlike uranium or plutonium, it is not just found underground or in the Earth’s crust, but also in the air we breathe.

Sufficient levels of this substance in the air can cling to dust particles, which are then inhaled and create a dangerous concentration of isotopes in your lungs and brachial tubes.  First, tests must be undertaken to make sure there is a sufficient level of radon to cause concern.  We offer many accurate testing devices to measure the radioactive radon levels in the air of your home and determine whether further action should be taken.

Typically, ventilation involves a cylindrical suction duct attached to the foundation of your home, which is used to jettison the heavy radon isotopes from the sub-grade area beneath the building. An electric, inline vacuum pump is activated to propel the radon gas out of the soil to safe venting locations above the structure.

Using active soil depressurization (ASD), the gasses can be diverted from entering the home, but the gas that has entered prior to activation of the system may require several days to dissipate from the home since the half-life of the gas is approximately four days.   Don’t allow your family and yourself continued exposure to harmful radiation particles.
