Radon is a gas that you cannot smell, taste or see. It forms naturally when uranium, thorium, or radium, (radioactive metals) breaks down in rocks, soil and groundwater. People can be exposed primarily from breathing the air that comes through cracks and gaps in buildings and homes.
Testing for radon is performed by a NYS Licensed Home Inspector. The measured results will be part of the written report the inspector presents to the homeowner. Homes with a tested elevated radon more than 4.0 pCi/L. needs to be reduced to a level less than this amount for passing.
Edgeco Environmental will design a mitigation system that fits the needs of a home following testing for elevated levels of Radon. This includes sealing of cracks in a cement floor, creating a vapor barrier using a polycarbonate (plastic sheeting) in a crawl space or dirt floor to reduce the Radon penetration though flooring in the home. We then create an extraction system to remove the Radon utilizing a Electric Fan specifically design for this purpose.
