Radon Mitigation

If your home radon test reported high levels, it's important to address the problem immediately. Idaho Radon provides thorough radon mitigation services throughout western Idaho. Call us today if you have a radon problem in your home; our professional radon contractors can help! When you choose Idaho Radon, we strive to make sure that after the mitigation for radon, the levels in your home will be reduced at least to EPA safe levels, if not below!

Radon mitigation is not a one-size-fits-all process. Idaho Radon will assess your house and your particular situation to customize the right radon abatement system for you. No matter what system design is chosen, we use only the best materials available to ensure the most thorough radon mitigation. Unlike some companies that use cheap products, Idaho Radon goes the extra mile to provide only superior materials because we know that these supplies are critical to the overall performance of your radon abatement system. And, because we want to provide you with the best service possible, we strive to stay abreast of the latest methods and technologies in the radon mitigation industry.

Depending on the construction of your home, Idaho Radon can use several different methods to mitigate radon gas. Two popular methods are sub-slab depressurization for homes with basements and sub-membrane depressurization for homes with crawlspaces.

  • Sub-slab depressurization: This process involves drilling a small hole in the floor of your basement slab and excavating a small cavity below. A pump is then attached to vacuum the radon (and other organic contaminants) out of the ground; this air is vented outside your home, where the gases harmlessly disperse into the atmosphere.
  • Sub-membrane depressurization: This process is similar to sub-slab depressurization, but because there is no actual slab, a membrane must be installed over the entire floor surface of the crawlspace. The radon is pumped out in a similar fashion and then vented to the outside, where it dissipates and becomes harmless.

With both methods, ensuring a complete seal (with caulk, seam tape, foundation repair, etc.) enables us to address all of the radon at its point of entry. The vacuum pump used to evacuate the gas in both systems does require a dedicated electrical box that can be easily installed by the qualified radon mitigation contractors at Idaho Radon. If energy efficiency is a concern, you'll be pleased to know that eliminating the dangerous gases in your house only uses as much electricity as a 40 watt light bulb.

Radon Mitigation for New Construction

Idaho Radon also offers radon mitigation systems for new construction. This preemptive measure is a great way to ensure that this potentially deadly gas is never a problem in your home. We use techniques similar to standard radon mitigation, but because we are not retrofitting your home, we're able to account for aesthetics as well as energy efficiency. Instead of placing radon stacks on the outside of your home, we can actually install them internally as the building is constructed, eliminating a potential eyesore while still ensuring complete venting of any dangerous gases. This makes certain you get the best of both worlds: a home that is both safe and beautiful! We highly recommend radon-resistant new construction for areas with known elevated levels of this gas, which includes much of western Idaho.
