RADON MITIGATION AND TESTING
At 86 the Radon we’re dedicated to helping Bismarck area families and businesses mitigate the risk of harmful exposure to radon gas. Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that seeps in through the foundation of the structure. Radon gas is odorless, colorless and the number one cause for lung cancer in non-smokers. The only way to know if your home or building has elevated levels of radon gas is to test for it. At 86 the Radon we only install the highest quality radon mitigation systems. Our radon mitigation system is designed to get maximum radon reduction results while keeping the highest standards of quality and aesthetics.
About 86 the Radon:
We are one of the largest radon mitigation companies in the Midwest. We have installed thousands of radon mitigation systems throughout the area. Our Radon Mitigation System is guaranteed to reduce radon levels below the EPA action level.
How Does our Radon Mitigation System Work:
The deadly radon gas enters the home through soil gas entry points such as cracks in the concrete, foundation wall cracks, plumbing pipe areas, floor tile drains and any other opening to the soil. Your radon mitigation technician will discover all accessible radon entry points and seal them. Your radon mitigation system is then installed. Our system is a permanent, fixed component of your home that runs twenty-four hours a day to reduce and remove radon gas. For most homes, they require a radon mitigation system consisting of a PVC pipe that runs from the soil below the basement floor, out to the exterior of the building. Within the pipe is a radon specific centrifugal fan. The fan creates a vacuum in the pipe, the vacuum creates suction in the soil below the house therefore pulling out the radon gas, before they enter the home through the foundation. A vent stack or chimney continues up the side of the house to vent the gas at a safe elevation above any traditional openings such as windows and doors.
