If your home has been found to have high levels of radon gas, there is no need for worry. A simple and economical installation can reduce your radon exposure in as little as one day. If you are selling your home, the radon test will need to show that the radon levels in the home are below 4.0 Picocuries per Liter (pCi/L). However, there is no “safe” level of radon and the USEPA recommends that treatment should be considered if the radon levels are shown to be between 2pCi/L and 4pCi/L.
A variety of methods can be used to reduce radon in homes. Sealing cracks and other openings in the foundation is a basic part of most approaches to radon mitigation. It should be noted however, that sealing is not a complete method of radon control, and the use of sealing alone is not recommended by the EPA. Unfortunately, you cannot seal radon out of the home using special paints or other sealant products advertised to reduce radon. This method has not been shown to lower radon levels significantly or consistently by itself.
In most cases, basic sealing is combined with an active mitigation system comprised of a pipe run through a small hole in the basement floor, through which radon is vented to the outside with the assistance of a radon fan. Such systems are called “sub-slab depressurization systems” and do not require major changes to your home. These systems constantly exhaust radon gas, thus preventing it from entering the home from below the concrete floor and the foundation. Similar systems can also be installed in homes with crawl spaces. The type of radon mitigation system used to control the radon in your home may differ based on the design of your home, and other factors. A radon mitigation system is easy to install and maintain, and does not need to detract from the aesthetics of your home.

After Your Radon System is Installed
After a radon reduction system has been installed, there are a few important things to do to ensure that the radon in your home stays at a safe level.
- Retest immediately after the installation to check that the system lowered your radon to safe levels. The retest must be completed no sooner than 24 hours after the installation and no later than 30 days after installation. A retest should be completed every 1 to 2 years thereafter.
- Natural environmental changes and construction to other properties that surround your home can affect radon levels in your home. Testing yearly will ensure that your home maintains a safe level of radon.
- Mitigation systems will require some amount of maintenance in addition to a small amount of electricity. A fan in a mitigation system will last approximately 3 to 5 years. It is important to replace the fan as soon as it stops operating. Regular system maintenance and cleaning of the fan components will extend the life of your radon mitigation system.
