Kanata Radon Removal and Testing
When radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, it's no small matter. Finding out how much radon is in your house is the first step to protecting your family from this harmful, radioactive gas. If it turns out you have high levels of radon in your home, don't worry. The solution is quick and highly effective; however, radon remediation must be done by a certified and experienced professional.
A radon mitigation system can consist of one method or more than one method combined. The common, most effective radon removal system is called active sub-slab depressurization because most houses have a poured, concrete slab in the basement covering the entire area of the basement. Regardless of the type/method utilized, any remediation system for radon must be sized and fitted appropriately in order to ensure optimal performance.
To extract radon from the ground below your home, a radon mitigation system must utilize a radon pipe and radon fan, sized and designed properly. The radon pipe is used to channel the radon from the ground, through the radon fan, and then to the outside.
A more passive option may be considered depending on the circumstances. For example, maybe the only thing needed to mitigate your home of radon is to encapsulate and seal your crawlspace air tight. Crawlspaces and dirt floors are big sources of radon inside your home.
Whatever solution we implement will result in really low concentrations of radon throughout your home - well below all 3 guidelines (WHO, EPA, Health Canada), leaving you and your family feeling safe and happy.
Radon Can Harm Anyone, In Any Building
Radon does not care how old you are or how big you are. Radon gas can still cause harm to your lungs. In fact, the radon decay progeny actually affects seniors and children more so than a middle aged adult. In addition, the more radon you are exposed to, and the longer you are exposed to it, the higher your risk. Long-term exposure to high levels of radon will eventually lead to lung cancer.
We Use The Scientific Method To Design The Best Radon Removal System For Your House
Too many companies out there, who may or may not be certified, will simply drill a couple holes in your basement and stick in some pipe and a fan and then HOPE it works. Professionals in the industry call this the "Poke and Hope Method". These people are installing the right equipment, but they are not doing all the tests and diagnostics required to design the most effective and most efficient system possible. Since we deliver nothing less than excellent results, this process is a must do. In order to design a radon mitigation system suitable for the conditions of your house, we insist on using science to help us accurately size the fan, the pipe, and determine the right location for the suction pit(s).
In addition to following a rock solid process for proper radon remediation, Kanata Radon Removal uses nothing but the highest quality material - the best fan available coupled with schedule 40 PVC pipe. All radon pipe is chemically bonded together, leaving no chance of them coming apart.
