Radon Gas Mitigation Photo Album: Installation of a Radon Mitigation System in SW Calgary, AB
This homeowner in Southwest Calgary, Alberta contacted us concerned about high levels of Radon Gas found in the 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. In search of the best solution to address their concern, and protect their health & home, they homeowners contacted the experts at Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.
A System Design Specialist was able to visit the homeowner, assess the situation, and provide the homeowners with a FREE, no obligation quote designed specific to address all of their concerns. From there our Radon Mitigation Specialist was able to install a Radon Gas Mitigation System which draws the gas from beneath the basement floor slab and vent it outside of the home. Seeing as the homeowner already had a TripleSafe™sump pump system installed, the Radon Mitigation Specialist could use the TripleSafe™ Basin as the area in which the Radon Fan would draw out the gas.
