Radon mitigation can be achieved through a variety of methods. One method of radon mitigation is to install a radon ventilation system in the home. Radon mitigation can be more effective if cracks in the floors and walls are well sealed. These methods of reducing radon levels are known as “passive” techniques. Sub-slab depressurization is the most effective technique for mitigating radon. The good news is that this type of radon mitigation will not require any major overhauls in the structure of your home. This radon reduction method is effective because it draws the radon from the ground underneath your concrete floor and then ventilates it out through the roof through the use of pipes and fans or ventilation systems. Radon gas removal can also be achieved with similar methods in homes that have been built with either attics or crawl spaces.
The are four types of soil suction systems: sub-slab, drain tile, sub-membrane and block wall.
Other radon reduction techniques may be considered to reduce the radon gas levels that are circulating within the home. Many of these methods are used only as temporary measures, or in combination with other measures, like the ventilation or suction system.
