What to do when you find out you have a Radon problem

It is required by the federal government that every once and a while the owner of properties all around the United States check the soil on the property to see if there is a high level of Radon being produced in the soil. Radon is a naturally occurring byproduct of decaying materials that eventually start to give off Radon. It is natural and there is not much that you can do to avoid it happening but as long as you are good about making sure to do the proper Radon checks when you are supposed to, Radon mitigation is actually not that big of a deal or all that difficult.

So what happens when you do one of these Radon checks and it turns out that there is probably more Radon in the soil under your building than there should be or more than has been called safe? This happens all of the time and is thankfully not so difficult to handle. First things first, you need to call a Radon remediation company like SWAT Environmental if you are in the Colorado area, if not you can start to look around online to see if there are any other highly rated Radon mitigation companies that are closer to where you are. If they are not the company that did the first Radon test, they might do another one just to make sure that they know exactly what it is that they are dealing with. radon removalOnce they have the information that they need, they can start with their Radon abetment process. Because it is incredibly difficult and also unnecessary to get rid of all of the Radon that is being produced constantly in the soil, Radon mitigation companies like SWAT Environmental have found a way to go another route with it and have created a process that reverses the natural path of the Radon. Normally when Radon is produced, it starts to slowly make its way up the bits of soil closer and closer to the surface, where it starts to be incredibly dangerous for the people on the surface. Radon mitigation teams like SWAT Environmental have figured out a process that can change the natural progression of the Radon and get it to instead sink back down into the ground where it is no longer able to do any kind of harm to people. The whole process of Radon mitigation takes only a few days or a week or so at the most and then the Radon has usually sunk enough to no longer be a danger to the people above the surface. Not only is this process incredibly quick but generally it is also quite long lasting so normally once you have a Radon mitigation team like SWAT Environmental come and perform this process, you are not going to need to do it again for years and years. This means that you can guarantee that in the very least, the people on your property will be safe from Radon and that is one less thing that you are going to have to worry about.
