Radon Gas Mitigation Photo Album: Radon Mitigation Installed in Lung Surgeons Home in SE Calgary, AB
A Lung surgeon in Calgary, Alberta, contacted us wanting to have his home mitigated from Radon to protect his health as well as his families. 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 his concern, and protect the health & home of his family, he contacted the experts at Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.
A System Design Specialist was able to visit the homeowner and provide him with a FREE, no obligation quote designed specific to address all of his concerns. From there our Radon Mitigation Specialist was able to install a sub-slab Radon Gas Mitigation System which draws the gas from beneath the basement floor slab and vent it outside of the home.

The Radon Gas will be taken out of the home through this pipe
