Tenant Move Out Cleanup >> Radon Mitigation

Turns out that your tenant works at the local nuclear power plant, one day when they are at work they decide to test themselves for radiation. The radiation levels go off the charts, and they determine that the radiation is coming from your rental house, so they want a Radon Mitigation.  Radon is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas produced when uranium decays in the soil and rock break down. The radon gas rises up through the earth and then dissolves into the air.

  1. Radon gas becomes a distress when it gets into our houses through fissures in our concrete and gaps in and around the house foundation. Inside our house the Radon Mitigation could amass. When these radioactive levels are high enough and radon gas is breathed in and might raise the chance of lung cancer. It is projected that radon gas might be linked to 20,000 lung cancer deaths per year in the United States alone. You might ask, how do I find out the radon level in my house?  You could easily test your own house for Radon Mitigation. Radon gas test kits are simple and relatively low cost.
  2. Be careful of door-to-door or phone telemarketers who try to high pressure or maybe frighten you. Stay with approved testing devices that could be bought from an impartial supplier who will not benefit from telling you that your house has high levels of radon gas. Your local administrative authority usually has a list of registered radon testing companies who will sell dependable and affordably priced Radon Mitigation test kits. During the radon testing process you will subject the test kit to the environment in your house, typically in the lowest living degree of your house, like the basement.
  3. The duration of the test could range from a few days to even up to a year and will be contingent on the kind of radon gas detector is used. Upon conclusion of the radon gas test is typically mailed to the laboratory for examination. The findings will be delivered back to you. The level of Radon Mitigation in one house may differ significantly from house to house so it is imperative for you to take findings for your house. Radon mitigation is the removal of the radon gas from a house and stopping new radon gas from coming back into a house.
  4. What you will need to do to reduce the radon gas in your house will be contingent on the level of radon gas detected. Radon mitigation must only be done after long term radon gas testing has been completed to verify high radon gas levels are present in your house. Radon gas levels are typically measured in picocuries per liter (pCi). If the yearly average Radon Mitigation levels in your house are relatively low (less than 4 pCi/l) you might only be required to air out your basement to enhance the air quality.
