Radon Gas Mitigation Photo Album: Radon Mitigation System, Plaistow, NH
This homeowner in Plaistow, New Hampshire has children that have recently settled in Texas. They would like to sell their home in Plaistow and move out to Texas to be near their kids. They wanted to do some inexpensive upgrades to their home to make sure they got top dollar when they decided to sell. One of the upgrades on the list was a radon mitigation system. The homeowners knew that there were moderately high radon levels in the home. They decided to call EFS for a free inspection. A couple of days before their appointment a representative from EFS arrived at the home to drop off a radon test. The test will examine the air for the next 48 hours and report on the radon levels in the home.
Design Specialist Brian Swindell inspected the home for visible signs of radon, like small cracks in the wall or the slab. Brian had found some crack on the slab in the basement that would need to be sealed. Brian then went over the test results with the homeowners. The result of the radon test showed that the radon levels in the home are above 10 pCi/L. Brian recommended installing a radon mitigation system into the home to get the radon levels as low as possible.
Crew Lead Dillon Kingsbury and his team installed the radon mitigation system into the home and sealed the cracks in the slab to ensure no radon can seep up through the floor.
