Radon Gas Mitigation Photo Album: I've Tested my Home for Radon and I Have High Levels. How do I get Rid of it? A question out of Fort Macleod, AB
This homeowner in Fort Macleod, Alberta contacted us concerned about high levels of Radon Gas found within 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 sub-slab Radon Gas Mitigation System which draws the gas from beneath the basement floor slab and vent it outside of the home. This homeowner can now rest easy knowing that their home's Radon levels have been significantly reduced.
