Radon Mitigation

In Attic Radon Mitigation System

Once you discover your Radon levels exceed the EPA action level of 4.0 pCi/L, installing a Radon mitigation system is one of the most affordable ways of reducing your family’s risk of lung cancer, through Radon risk reduction.
Each Radon mitigation system is unique and designed specifically for your home’s needs. Our licensed Radon professionals will examine both the interior and exterior of your home and perform thorough diagnostic testing to determine the most effective placement and configuration of your mitigation system, keeping you informed every step of the way.

What is Radon?

Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. It is an odorless, invisible, and radioactive gas resulting from Uranium decay in the ground. It accumulates in homes without proper ventilation requiring a specialized system that creates a vacuum under the home to vent it out before it gets into the breathable air inside.

Radon Mitigation Systems Explained

Radon mitigation systems are commonly based on Sub-slab depressurization. These systems prevent Radon gas from entering a home by eliminating the toxic Radon at the source, from underneath the home, using a combination of an installed piping system and a Radon exhaust fan.

Normally the air pressure inside a house causes gases from under the soil to be sucked up into your home – not just through cracks but also through tiny pores in the cement slab itself. Radon mitigation systems minimize this, by instead routing those gases up through an installed piping system that exhausts them into a safe location in the atmosphere.

The key to venting the Radon out of the home is the PVC piping which is installed into the slab itself or into an existing sump pump (through a specialized lid), below the concrete floor. Above the surface, the piping is routed to the nearest outside wall, where it runs up along the exterior and exhausted over your roofline. (In some cases, the piping may be routed through an interior closet space or attached garage and through an attic space.)

To keep soil gases moving through the PVC piping and into the open outside air, a specialized Radon exhaust fan is installed about halfway up the piping, on the exterior of your house (or when applicable/requested in the attic or garage.) This is to ensure constant suction of the gases from the soil under your home.

All other obvious Radon entry points such as groundwater sump pits, cracks in basement floors, wall/floor joints, and crawlspace areas, will be sealed when applicable.

Sump Pit

Sump pumps can be used as suction points in many homes. We can also avoid drilling into the concrete floor. However, larger or older homes may need additional suction points installed to ensure safe levels of radon.

Crawl Space Encapsulation

No basement? No problem. We can encapsulate your crawl space and vent any radon away from your home with this kind of system. This creates a cleaner crawlspace and makes other repairs requiring access to this area much easier, as well.

Follow Up Radon Testing Ensures Your Mitigation System Is Working Properly

Once your Radon mitigation system has been installed, our technician will schedule a follow-up test to make sure your post-mitigation Radon levels are now below the EPA action level.

Our mitigation systems are guaranteed to reduce the Radon concentrations below the action level of 4.0 pCi/L in any home. In fact, most of the time our Radon-mitigation systems result in Radon levels below 2.0pCi/L.

First step in improving future health risk for us and our families. Scott was helpful and answered all questions we had about testing to validate an initial charcoal canister test. Our next steps will be mitigation likely thru EnviroTech Radon.

Scott was great and made everything really simple from start to finish. He was clear about options, pricing, etc. and did a great job. Highly recommend!

Ashley Cartlidge January 2022

Scott was incredible to work with. He provided a detailed quote before install, which was significantly less expensive than competitors. He was also able to hide the radon system in our garage and out our roof, so it is unnoticeable from the street. Our levels before install was 6, which now after install is under 1. He was extremely professional, courteous and we would absolutely recommend EnviroTech to anyone needing a radon system.

Scott was on time and did professional work. He answered all of my questions (and I had many). He was responsive to emails. The system was installed without any complications and the cleanup was great. Best of all the system has been working with radon levels below the level for concern. Highly recommend

Excellent responsiveness, clean and quality work. Highly recommend for home sellers. Environtech exceeded my expectations with professionalism installing a proven system with warranty that exceeds other firms. Was impressed with how they used drop cloths to keep workspace clean and cleaned up after their job.
My thanks to Scott, Ben and crew for their capability to install and successfully test the system well before my closing date, at short notice and with no surprises on the reasonable price estimate!

Kim Blackmore February 2022

Scott @ Envirotech installed a radon mitigation system in the house I was selling in December of 2021.

His competitors should watch out because Scott is a triple threat:
*Flexible. This was an unforeseen need and Scott went out of his way to get it installed prior to our existing closing date, something no one else I contacted was able or willing to do.
*Affordable. While timing was more important than cost, Scott still came in below everyone else. Huge bonus!
*Reliable. His work seemed exemplary and was done on time. He also followed up to ensure the system was working properly.

Both myself and the home buyers were very pleased with the entire process. I would recommend Envirotech to anyone needing a radon expert!
