Radon is a gas that is emitted when rock or brick decomposes. It is a form of radioactive decay usually found in gravelly, sandy-mixed soils. Radon levels can vary drastically from house to house, even in the same neighborhood. High radon levels can effect homes whether they are new or older, often undetected.
Radon can cause lung cancer over a long period of time. According to the EPA, radon “is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers” and is responsible for approximately 21,000 deaths every year.
People with any respiratory or sinus issues are likely to have a harder time breathing when there are high levels of radon in the air. Therefore, homes often need a radon mitigation system.
LiveGreen uses the process of radon mitigation to reduce radon concentrations in the air of your home. Through radon testing, we’ll determine how high your radon levels are and what can be done to lower this number. A radon mitigation system extracts the radon from the air, drawing it out of your home. And since LiveGreen employs individuals with a construction background, we can work with you to aesthetically blend the system into your house.
Another benefit of sealed crawl spaces relates to radon mitigation. Sealed crawl spaces allow for easier radon mitigation because of the plastic sealed liner which can be installed with slotted pipes underneath the seal to extract the gas.
