Radon Testing And Mitigation
It’s best to do radon testing at multiple points throughout the year. The amount of radon in a home is usually highest during the heating season. Weather can also influence the amount of radon in a home.
As was mentioned before, the MDH recommends every home, even those built radon-resistant, have radon testing done every 2-5 years. Homes should also be tested after any work is done, such as building an addition, finishing a basement or adding an HVAC system.
Make an appointment today to have a professional Finken technician conduct radon testing in your home.
If it is found that you have high levels of radon in your home after testing, a radon mitigation system can be installed to begin reducing the amount of radon right away.
A radon mitigation system is a ventilation system which is installed on an exterior wall and vents radon out of the basement/lower level. This helps improve the quality of the air. Sealing the cracks or other areas where radon is entering the home has not been shown to reduce radon in the long-term.
