Radon Mitigation in Iowa
Research shows that if you live in Iowa, you have a high risk of radon in your home. If your radon testing results show a level above 4 pCi/L, radon mitigation is recommended to protect you and your family from the dangerous effects of radon exposure. While no amount of radon is considered safe, 4 pCi/L is a threshold that should not be ignored, and the professionals at AmeriServ are here to help.
What is Radon Mitigation?
Radon mitigation, radon abatement, and radon remediation all point to the same idea: the process of getting rid of radon inside of your home by redirecting it outside. We are able to do this by installing a radon mitigation system. There are a variety of radon mitigation techniques that can be used and our team will recommend the one that will work best for your home. A common technique involves drilling a hole in your foundation or slab to create a suction point. We then connect a PVC pipe to this hole to use as a vent and install a fan that runs continuously to keep airflow in the right direction, as shown in the picture below.
Why is Radon Removal Important?
You may have lived your entire life so far without ever hearing about radon and are wondering why radon removal is so important. Consider the following:
- Radon cannot be seen or tasted to know if it is present
- Radon symptoms don’t appear until years after contamination
- Iowa has some of the highest radon levels in the country
- Radon is one of the leading causes of lung cancer
- Radon is everywhere: homes, offices, schools, etc.
In short, the only way to be sure you are not experiencing the harmful effects of radon is to have your home tested and then have the radon removed by a professional.
