Most Common Questions About Radon Mitigation Installations


You have recently found out that you have high levels of radon in your home and have scheduled your radon mitigation installation to get the levels under control. That is great, and while you are actively working to solve the problem that is putting your and your loved one’s health at risk, you really have a few questions that you would like answered. With that in mind, read on below for a few of the most common questions answered about radon mitigation.

How Much Does It Cost?

One of the biggest questions concerning radon mitigation installation is how much it’s going to cost the homeowner. The average radon mitigation system can be installed for under or close to $1,500. However, in some homes more than one mitigation system is required, so the price will be different for those homes.

Will Sealing Cracks in the Basement Help?

No, it won’t. Sealing cracks in the basement and foundation has never been able to stop radon as it is an active gas. Sealing the largest cracks in the basement, however, will help the mitigation system to do its job better. So, sealing the cracks will help the system, but not stop the radon from getting inside of your home.

How Long Is the Installation Going to Take?

Most systems can be installed in a matter of house unless problems are run into. Count on a few hours just to be on the safe side.

Will It Help?

Not only will this get your radon levels under control, it will also give you the peace of mind of knowing that you have protected your home and family the best way you know how.
