Radon Testing in Thornton, CO
In the pictures you will see a home that had high radon levels. Certified IAQ installed a Radon Mitigation System by securing a suction point through the sump pump and sealing. This is a common method used with sump pump.
Many homes are now being built with Radon Resistant New Construction or a Passive System installed during the building process. In the pictures below you will see a before and after of a passive system that was activated by Certified IAQ Professionals. If you have a passive system make sure you are activating it within your warranty or upfront. Majority (75% or more) of the passive systems are installed by the plumber and not a Certified Radon Mitigation Tech. 2 out of 3 passive systems we had scheduled yesterday couldn't be activated because builder issues. Majority of the time warranty will cover what needs to be done to make it happen and sometimes the vertical piping in the attic needs to be rerouted and taken through a new spot in the roof. It can get costly.
