Does our radon mitigation system provide any other benefits?
Yes! Some of the comments that we hear frequently from our customers are "the dehumidifier seems to run less", "the house feels cleaner", and "the musty smell in the basement is gone". It has been estimated that an active radon system can draw a gallon of water from beneath the slab every two hours, thus reducing the bacterial growth under your house. Great news for allergy sufferers!!!
My home has a very high radon level. Can it be fixed?
Yes!! Homes with very high levels of radon have loose soil conditions. In these conditions our system fan vacum will cover the entire footprint of the house reducing radon levels to well below the EPA accepted standard of 4pCi/L. At USA Radon we GUARANTEE that your radon level will be reduced below this standard. Our systems are routinely bringing levels below 1pCi/L!!!
