|Why Choose Us?
After living in their house for six years, homeowners in Washington Court House, OH, began to seriously question the health and safety of their living environment. Their sons have their bedrooms in the basement, and they were most concerned with the level of radon in the basement and rest of the home.
Radon, a naturally occurring radioactive gas, can be found in homes across the globe. This colorless, odorless, tasteless gas is a leading cause of lung cancer, and it is responsible for more than 20,.000 annual deaths.
After testing their home for radon, the owners learned the radon level in the house was slightly lower than 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L). This latter amount is the level at which the Environmental Protection Agency recommends mitigating radon.
The owners wanted to make every effort to lower their home’s radon level as much as possible, so they began to research the next step. They found information about Ohio Basement Authority online, and they were eager to contact us for further guidance. They met with one of our inspectors who reviewed the radon test results with them, as well as our company’s mitigation procedures.
One of our crews then installed a radon mitigation system to draw radon from the house and expel it outside, thus helping lower the inside radon levels as much as possible. A domed and sealed lid also was placed over the sump pump system in the basement to prevent radon intrusion through the sump pit.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing this reliable installation has helped them create a safer and healthier living environment for their family.
The inspector we met with was very nice and showed us everything to alleviate any apprehension we may have had.
One reason we chose to work with Ohio Basement Authority was the cost. It was very affordable. Another reason was the warranty.
The installation crew answered any and all questions I had on the procedures, and they pointed out the difference while the project progressed. And I never expected for them to blow the dust away.
