Your radon project will generally include two phases - the testing phase to determine the average radon concentration within the space; then if elevated or desired, radon mitigation or treatment to lower the radon in the home or building.
Quick Radon Facts
Radon is a chemical element (Rn) and is a cancer-causing gas.
You can’t see or smell radon. Testing is the only way to know your level of exposure.
Radon is found all over the United States, even out West.
Radon is in soil-gas (the air in the soil between the particles).
The primary source of radon is uranium in the soil, rocks, and groundwater. Over many years the uranium breaks down into radium; in return, breaking down further into radon.
Radon enters the home via pathways from the underlying soil into the interior space (cracks in the slab, sump pits, etc).
Slab-on-grade homes can have radon issues as well.
