There are many measures you can take to reduce the amount of radon radiation in your home and keep it out from mitigation systems to air purifiers. However, radon does still build up over time, and you will at some point need to call a professional to mitigate the it from your building.
1. Water Testing
The water supply is a common way for radon to enter our homes and our bodies, but it is more difficult to detect than airborne radiation. A professional radon mitigation contractor will have the tools and the knowledge necessary to test and treat your water supply for radon and install a radon water system if necessary.
2. Tips and Tricks
A contractor can not only cut down the radiation in your home but advise you on how you can keep the level low in the future. They can advise you on any additional systems you should install and where. Radon prevention can be difficult, and an improperly installed system won’t do anything to cut down on radiation, so a professional eye and opinion are key.
3. Full Mitigation
You can perform a test at home for radon, but the only way to get rid of it if it has risen to dangerously high levels is by calling in a radon mitigation contractor. A mitigation system will reduce radon in the future, but there isn’t much it can do against existing radon, which must be removed before the system is installed.
If you have detected high levels of radon in your building with a home test or are worried about how to proceed, contact a reliable local service that will be able to help you and give you reassurance. They will not only make your building safe again but advise you on how to keep it that way in the future.
