If your home has tested positive for high radon levels, the next step is to determine a radon gas mitigation plan to reduce or eliminate radon in your home. The professionals at RLS Environmental, LLC in Reading, Lenhartsville & Hamburg, PA offer radon mitigation services to help you find and adopt the best solution for your property.
You'll want to select the right radon gas mitigation system for your home. There are several ventilation systems to choose from, including:
- Active soil depressurization system (ASD): Also called sub-slab depressurization, this is the most common system and is ideal for basements with an average ceiling height and a cement floor. This system requires a PVC pipe installation beneath your home's slab. A fan is then connected to the pipe to pull gases up from the ground and release them outside.
- Sub-membrane depressurization system (SMD): This is best for homes with a dirt floor basement or an exposed crawl space. The system involves a specialized plastic covering, a PVC pipe and a fan that draws gases out and releases them outside.
- Air exchange system: This system is much less common because it's ideal for homes with unusual flooring conditions or crawl spaces that are difficult to access. We can install an air-to-air heat exchanger that moves air into and out of the house to help neutralize the air inside and prevent gas buildup.
