Homeowners in Heath, OH, moved into their house in 2007. In recent years, there has been a lot of talk about radon gas and its effect on health and lung cancer. These Heath residents tested their home for radon and the results were 13.9 picocuries per liter (pCi/L). The EPA suggests keeping radon levels below 4 pCi/L for a family's health and safety, so these homeowners were concerned about their high levels. After coming across our information in a pamphlet, they called to schedule a free inspection and estimate.
One of our certified inspectors surveyed the home to determine the best placement for a radon mitigation system, and check for other issues the homeowners were not aware of. It turned out that radon was the only pressing issue at this time. The inspector decided that a suction point would be created in an unused back area of the basement. This is the place where radon gas will be sucked out of the home and released outside.
A knowledgeable installation crew then came in and installed this system. They also included a moisture guard around the exhaust pipe to collect condensation before it causes the fan to build up or rust. In addition, they put a radon dome lid on the sump pump. This is an airtight cover which will prevent radon from entering the home through the sump pit.
This system will greatly lower the radon levels in this home, and the residents are thankful for this.
Not long after moving into their daughter’s house, a couple in Utica, OH, began to question the health and safety of the home. They wondered if radon was having an effect on the living environment.
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is present in homes across the globe. It cannot be seen, smelled or tasted, but its effects are very real. Radon is a leading cause of lung cancer, and exposure to the gas has been linked to more than 20,000 annual deaths.
These factors greatly concerned the couple, so they decided to have the home tested for radon. The results indicated the home’s radon level was 4.7 picocuries per liter (pCi/L). This is just slightly higher than the level at which the Environmental Protection Agency recommends mitigating radon, which is 4 pCi/L.
The couple contacted Ohio Basement Authority after finding our website, and they met with one of our inspectors to learn more about how we could help them. The inspector reviewed the test results with them, as well as our company’s mitigation process.
One of our crews then installed a radon mitigation system in the home. This involved creating a suction point to draw radon from the home. A hole was drilled in the basement floor to create this suction point. Ventilation pipes were then connected to the hole and directed to the home’s exterior. There, the pipe connected to a fan unit that further helps ventilate radon out of the home. Additional ventilation pipes were connected to the top of the fan and extended past the roof for safe and effective radon expulsion.
The couple now has peace of mind knowing this reliable repair has helped create a safer and healthier living environment.
After living there for three years, homeowners in Newark, OH decided to test their home for radon. As more and more statistics and health concerns arise in the realm of radon, these homeowners chose to take the next step toward making their 51 year-old home a safer one.Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas found throughout the country. It is produced by the decay of uranium in rocks and soils, and is colorless, odorless, and tasteless. This lack of sensory detection makes it even more of a health hazard. Exposure to radon gas has been linked to more than 20,000 deaths per year, and it is the second leading cause of lung cancer.
For this Newark home, the radon test showed levels between 9-11 pCi/L (picocuries per liter) — more than double the EPA’s suggested action level of 4 pCi/L. To lower these troubling levels, we installed a radon mitigation system which will reduce the levels by more than 50%.The homeowners can now have peace of mind knowing that these reliable repairs will make their home a healthier and safer place to live.
A new homeowner was excited to move into her new house in Newark, OH. She would like to make this house her forever home, so maintaining a healthy living environment is very important to her.
She was concerned with the levels of radon in the home, so she contacted the experts at Ohio Basement Authority to help her address this issue.
Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that is common throughout the country, especially in Ohio. It is a product of decaying uranium in rocks and soil. It also is a hazardous gas that results in more than 20,000 deaths each year, and is the second-leading cause of lung cancer.
Radon mitigation systems are strongly recommended in homes with radon levels above 4 pCi/L (picocuries per liter). The results in the new homeowner’s house were 37 pCi/L.
This alarmed the owner, but we were able to quickly install a radon mitigation system to safely pull radon from the house and ventilate it outside. We also replaced the sump pump’s lid with a sealed and domed lid to prevent radon from escaping.
The owner now has peace of mind knowing these installations have helped her create a healthier home she will be able to enjoy for many years to come.
After recently moving into his house, a homeowner in Newark, OH, wanted to make sure his longtime home would be a safe and healthy living environment. He was concerned with the level of radon in his home, and wanted to take steps to make sure these levels were as low as possible.
Radon is a naturally occurring gas that is colorless, odorless and tasteless. It is produced by the decay of uranium in rocks and soil, and it is present across the country. This gas is very hazardous, however. Exposure to radon has been linked to more than 20,000 deaths every year, and it is the second-leading cause of lung cancer.
Radon mitigation systems are strongly recommended in homes with radon levels at or above 4 pCi/L (picocuries per liter). The homeowner contacted Ohio Basement Authority, and the 48-hour test that we conducted in his home indicated the levels of radon ranged from 27 to 35 pCi/L.
We then installed a radon mitigation system in the owner’s home to safely pull the radon gas from the house and ventilate it outside. This involved cutting a hole in the basement’s slab floor to create a suction point. PVC pipe was then connected to this hole and directed to the home’s exterior. A fan was placed on the outside of the home to help ventilate the radon out of the home.
The owner was pleased this reliable system was installed in his home so it will be a healthier place for him to live for many years to come.
Excited to live in a newly built house, homeowners in Granville, OH, wanted to ensure the long-term health and safety of their living environment. After speaking to a trusted loved one who recently had work completed by Ohio Basement Authority, the homeowners realized their radon mitigation system may not be effective.
Mitigating the naturally occurring radon gas that is extremely hazardous is very important to the homeowners. Radon has been linked to more than 20,000 deaths each year, and it is the second leading cause of lung cancer. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends mitigating for radon when radon levels are above 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L).
The homeowners were alarmed when we tested their home and the results indicated the home’s levels ranged from 50 to 54 pCi/L. We then installed a proper radon mitigation system by removing the older system and sealing the existing suction point. Two new suction points were created in the vast basement’s concrete slab floor to suck the radon gas from inside the home. PVC pipes connected to the suction points were directed to the attic to a ventilation fan and through the roof for the proper exhaust of the radon gas.
