Radon Mitigation: Remove This Harmful Gas from Your Home
Radon is a natural but harmful gas that is common in Wisconsin homes, with most counties having moderate to high levels of this toxin in the soil. It can seep into your home through even the tiniest fault in your foundation and cause serious health problems, including lung cancer, so it’s important to have your home tested for this colorless, odorless gas. Professionals like Gross Heating & Air Conditioning can identify radon risk and remove it with a simple process called radon mitigation.
How Do You Test for Radon?
If you are breathing in too much radon, you won’t feel sick or have any symptoms right away. Testing your home is the only way to know if there’s a radon problem. For accurate results in as little as two days, call an expert like Gross Heating—we can determine if your indoor air is contaminated with radon, as well as other elements such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), dust, particulates, or carbon monoxide. Test kits are also available at many hardware stores or can be ordered online.
How Do You Remove Radon?
If testing indicates more than four pCi/L (picocuries per liter) of radon in your home, the sooner you schedule removal the better. Our state-certified technicians will determine the appropriate size and placement of a radon mitigation system that will safely vent this gas out and away from your home. The pipes and exhaust fan can usually be installed in a day, making it an affordable but absolutely necessary solution for a safer, healthier home.
