Radon Mitigation >> Radon Inspectors

Homeowners must seriously think about correcting a Radon Inspectors issue before making final plans to sell a house. This many times allows more time to correct the issue and find the most cost efficient answer. Also, the current residents and not just the buyer's residents, will benefit from the reduced radon gas risk. Radon mitigation systems require periodic maintenance. Check your warning indicator, frequently to ensure the radon mitigation system is working properly.

  1. Radon mitigation system fans might last for about five years or more, the manufacturer warranties normally will not exceed five years. You might need to fix or get a newer fan. A Radon Inspectors mitigation expert must perform the following general steps when installing a radon mitigation system in your house. They must perform a test of the house, including a visual examination and research and other diagnostic methods, when planning for your radon mitigation system. They should label the radon mitigation system plainly to avoid unintentional changes to the radon mitigation system. For instance, the Radon Inspectors system tuning could be misidentified for a plumbing pipe.
  2. To stop radon gas from coming back into the house, the radon mitigation expert must position the discharge, above the eave of the house, 10 feet or more above the surface of the ground. The discharge of the radon gas should be 10 feet or more away from any doorway or window into an neighboring building. If any window, door or other opening into air conditioned areas of a building is less than two feet below the Radon Inspectors discharge vertically, then the output should be at least 10 feet from the window or door crosswise. The total expected distance, that is 10 feet from the output to the openings in the building might be calculated either straight between the two points or be the sum of calculations made around interfering obstructions.
  3. When possible, the Radon Inspectors output point must be located above the highest eave of the house and as near to the roof ridge line as achievable. Put in a radon mitigation system fan in an suitable location. The radon mitigation system fan should not be in or below a inhabitable space. If putting in a radon mitigation system fan outdoors, the fan must meet local electric code constraints for outdoor use. Follow all local code regulations when putting in electrical fittings for radon mitigation systems.
  4. Put in a warning indicator that is easy to see or hear to alert you if your radon mitigation system stops functioning properly. Describe and show how your Radon Inspectors mitigation system operates and how to take care of it. Supply you with written management and maintenance directions and copies of any manufacture warranties. Once your radon mitigation expert has finished these steps, you should make sure the system is operating by performing a post-mitigation test in 30 days of the install but no sooner than 24 hours after your radon mitigation system is in use with the fan on. Perform a retest again, at least every two years.
