While this is all very impressive for an Indianapolis radon mitigation company, it speaks volumes about our quality of service, and the dangers of radon gas.

Over a century later, with advancements in science and technology, we have made discoveries to now know that radon gas causes lung cancer. Found in your soil when other naturally occurring elements break down, we have realized the dangers of radon. Over 20,000 people are killed each year from radon, which all could be preventable by radon mitigation for your home.

Radon Mitigation Process

Depending on the type of radon, there are many different ways in which it can be dealt with. Most likely your soil is the source of the radon. With soil suction, radon may be sucked out of your soil and dispersed into the air where it is diluted away from your Indianapolis home. Other radon mitigation techniques include ventilation fans to reduce the levels throughout your home to ensure that your home is free of this gas.

Radon Gas Health Risks Solved with Radon Mitigation Indiana

Radon Mitigation IndianapolisYou may think that radon gas is not an issue if you live in a major city like Indianapolis, Indiana, but that is far from the truth. Radon gas can gradually build up in homes and other confined spaces no matter what the urban density of their surroundings. Radon is a radioactive element that has been found to be a major cause of lung cancer.

This gas is a natural byproduct of the gradual decay of elements in rocks and soil. Normally, it is expelled into the air, where it harmlessly dissipates. However, radon gas can has been known to accumulate inside houses in Indianapolis without the owners even being aware of it. This is because radon does not have any specific odor, nor can it be detected by the naked eye. The radon can seep up through sub floors and cracks or gaps in a house’s foundation or basement. When the gas is released into the interior of the home it has no place to go; it simply continues to accumulate, filling the house with ever-higher radon levels.

SWAT Environmental Indianapolis Radon Mitigation

A buildup of radon can be harmful to individuals of all ages and health backgrounds. The gas will attack the soft tissues in the human body and break them down. This can cause a number of medical problems; with sufficient exposure, it can even cause death. Fortunately, SWAT Environmental can implement a number of radon mitigation strategies to prevent the buildup of the gas in your home.

One of the most effective options for radon mitigation is known as soil depressurization. This technique involves the use of PVC piping to give the gas an exit from your home. SWAT Environmental mitigation specialists will install a pipeline running from the lowest point in the house to an exterior opening. Typically the radon gas is piped out of the home through the attic or another high point of the house to prevent it from accidentally returning. Once the gas is expelled into the atmosphere it naturally dissipates and becomes harmless.

Setting up a soil depressurization system will also require the use of a specialized fan unit to aid in the efficient and complete removal of the radon gas. This creates negative pressure throughout the system to actually draw the gas out of your home. Once a soil pressurization radon mitigation system with an active fan unit is installed in a home, it will eliminate 99 percent of the radon gas it contains.

Another major advantage of having mitigation measures performed on your Indianapolis home is that the units required can be matched to the interior or exterior decor of the home. These systems are both effective and quiet. Of course, the most important advantage of having SWAT Environmental install a radon mitigation system in your home is the certainty that you and your family will be safe from the risk of lung cancer and other harmful effects of radon gas.
