Radon is a radioactive, colorless, odorless and tasteless gas that occurs naturally as an indirect decay product of uranium or thorium. It is considered a health hazard due to its radioactivity. Radon gas from natural sources can accumulate in buildings, especially in confined areas such as the basement. Most homes have some level of radon which penetrates through the lowest level in the home that is in contact with open ground. Entry points include cracks in foundations, construction joints, water supply, openings around service pipes, an opening in suspended floors and cracks in walls. Apple Aire is your contact for Radon Mitigation. We can come into your home and set up a tester in the basement and test for the radon over a three day period. We are able to get a reading of how much Radon you may have in your home. Based on the reading we are able to tell you if you need mitigation of the radon gases. The most common approaches are active soil depressurization (ASD) which utilizes a radon mitigation suction fan to pull the gas out from below the foundation of the home. The radon fan is attached in-line with a PVC pipe system running from the foundation to the roof of the home. The outside air then dilutes the radon gases diminishing the hazard of the gases.
