ABOUT RADON

  • The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that 1 of15 homes in the United States (as many as 1 of 3 homes in some states)— about 7 million homes—have high radon levels.
  • Radon is naturally occurring and is created from the radioactive decay of uranium in the soil.
  • The EPA estimates that radon gas causes approximately 21,000 lung cancer deaths in the U.S. each year.
  • The EPA reccomends that you take action to reduce radon gas when levels are greater than 4 pCi/L.
  • The EPA estimates that second hand smoke causes approximately 3,000 lung cancer deaths in the U.S. each year.
  • A University of North Dakota suggests that radon may even contribute to Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.
  • Radon gas is found all over the United States.
  • Radon Gas is found all over Utah.
  • RadoVent™ has worked on homes in Beaver Utah with radon gas levels above 300 pCi/L. That's 75 times the EPA recommendations.
  • In areas of Sandy, Draper and Park City over half the homes tested have high radon gas levels.
  • Approximately 32% Salt Lake County homes have elevated levels of radon gas.
  • Radon gas can easily and inexpensively be measured and controlled.
  • Radon enters the home or building through cracks and other openings in the foundations and floors.
  • Radon levels tend to be greater in the lowest areas of the home or building.
  • Many Utah homes have finished basements with sleeping rooms.
  • Radon gas levels can be lowered by up to 99% by installing an active radon mitigation system.
  • The RadoVent™ Radon Mitigation System works 24 hours a day to prevent elevated levels of radon gas.

RADON MITIGATION


How Does The System Work:

Radon gas enters the home through soil gas entry points i.e. cracks in the concrete slabs, foundation wall cracks, plumbing pipe penetrations, floor drains and any other opening to the soil.

Your radon mitigation

technician will

identify all accessible

radon entry points and

seal them using proper

sealants. Then the

system is installed.

The system is a

permanent, tangible

component of your home that runs twenty-four hours a day to block radon gas. The typical home requires a radon mitigation system consisting of a PVC pipe that runs from the soil below the basement floor, to the exterior of the home. Attached to the pipe is a radon specific centrifugal fan. This fan creates a vacuum in the PVC pipe(s), the vacuum creates suction in the soil below the house therefore pulling out the radon gas, voc gas, humidity and musty odors before they enter the home through the foundation. From the fan, a vent stack or chimney continues up the side of the house to vent the gas at a safe elevation above any windows, doors or other openings.


System Designs:


  • Exterior Radon Mitigation System
  • Attic Installed Radon Mitigation System
  • Passive Radon Mitigation System


We design the best radon mitigation system to maximize radon reduction in the home office or business. We don't cut corners. The Exterior Installed Radon Mitigation Systems are painted to match the exterior or trim of the house. The attic installed Radon Mitigation System is installed with the highest level of customer satisfaction. Our courteous installers have been trained to properly weave the water tight roof flashing into the shingles of the house. We have never had a roof leak from one of our system installations.
