Radon Mitigation >> Radon

The EPA recommends that you should have a qualified radon mitigation contractor Radon your home because lowering the high radon gas levels requires a specific technical knowledge and a special set of skills. Without the proper tools and equipment or the technical knowledge, you might actually increase your radon level or create other potential health hazards and additional costs. However, if you do decide to do the work yourself, get information from your state radon office.

  1. The EPA recommends that you should use a state certified and/or qualified Radon contractor that is trained to fix your radon problems. You may determine a certain service provider’s qualifications to perform radon measurements or to mitigate your house in several ways. First, you should check with your state radon office, because many states will require that radon professionals to be licensed, certified, or registered, and for them to install radon mitigation systems that shall meet state requirements. Many states could provide you with an extensive list of knowledgeable Radon service providers doing business in your state.
  2.  In the states that don’t regulate radon gas services, ask the contractor if they hold the professional proficiency or certification credential, and if they follow their industry consensus standards such as the American Society for Testing and Materials that follows the standard practice for installing any Radon systems in the existing low-rise residential and office buildings. You can contact your local private proficiency programs for a list of privately-certified professionals in your particular area. Such programs generally provide members with a photo-ID card, which will indicate their qualification(s) and the ID-card holder’s expiration date.
  3.  For more information on these private proficiency programs, check out the web there is a lot of good information that can help you to Radon or contact your state radon office. It's a good idea to get estimates before you choose a contractor to fix your radon problem just as you would choose someone to do your other home repairs. It is always wise to get more than one estimate, to ask for their references, and to contact some of those references and to ask if they are satisfied with the radon mitigation contractors' work. Also, ask your state radon office or your local consumer protection office for information about the radon abatement contractors.
  4. In Ask that the contractor prepare a written contract before any work starts and carefully read the contract before you sign it. Make certain that everything in the contract matches the original copy of the proposal. The proposal should describe exactly what type of work will be done prior to and during the installation of the Radon system, what the system will consists of, and how the system will function. There are many contractors that provide a guarantee that they will adjust or modify the mitigation system to reach a negotiated radon gas level. Carefully read all of the conditions of the written contract describing the work guarantee.
