  • Home Has Radon Mitigation System Installed in High River, AB
    Before
    Home Has Radon Mitigation System Installed in High River, AB
    After

    This homeowner was concerned with the level of Radon in her home. Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that has become the second-leading cause of lung cancer, second only to cigarette smoke. Most soils contain uranium that, over time, decays to produce radium and polonium. Eventually, polonium is released with the radon, which creates a high toxicity level in the air and water that it infuses.

    Wanting to take action immediately she contacted Doug Lacey's Basement Systems to schedule a FREE, no obligation inspection, a System Design Specialist went to her home and gave her a free quote to install a new Radon Gas Mitigation System which draws the gas from beneath the basement floor slab and vent it outside of the home.
