Worried About Radon? How H&S Can Help You Breath Easier.
Radon is a scary element. Radioactive, invisible, unsmellable, untasteable, and very dense, this gas almost reads like a supervillain. Luckily, radon can be detected through a simple test, and a solution is available to easily and continuously remove it from your home to protect your family.
Since air pressure inside homes is generally lower than air pressure outside, the home acts as a vacuum, sucking up the dense radon through cracks in the foundation or other openings. In a well-ventilated home, radon levels tend to be lower. That’s why radon mitigation involves additional ventilation.
Also, the half-life of radon is 3.8 days, so once mitigation is secured, the levels of radon will drop significantly in about a week.
A radon mitigation system can be installed if necessary by H&S Heating and Air Conditioning. This is a ventilation system installed on an exterior wall which vents radon out of the basement or lower level.
Remember, radon is only scary if you let it be. Get in touch with our team to take the worry out of your mind!
