WHERE RADON COMES FROM:
Radon comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soils and rocks. It seeps out of the ground, into basements and moves to other areas of a building or home.
Radon gas can move through small spaces in the soil and rock upon which a house is built. It can seep into a home through dirt floors, cracks in concrete, sumps, joints, basement drains, etc. Concrete block walls are particularly porous to radon.
TEST YOUR HOME:
There are many “do-it-yourself” kits that can be purchased at your local hardware store or through the mail. You can also contact a state-licensed radon tester to conduct a 48-hour radon test in your home.
Once you have tested your home, call REP for a free estimate to mitigate the radon from your home. Custom solutions are available to mitigate each home, with the option of an internal or external mitigation system.
