Radon mitigation is a necessary service for any home or business that has radon levels above 4pCi/L. Exposure to this amount of radon is equivalent to standing near a radioactive waste disposal site. Radon exposure is responsible for thousands of deaths due to lung cancer each year. The Environmental Protection Agency reported that 1 out of every three homes in a large sample area – 7 states plus 3 Indian reservations – had radon levels higher than 4 pCi/L.

Why Radon Gas Mitigation
Radon gas mitigation is a service that we take very seriously because it directly affects the health of our valued customers and their beloved families. Radon must be removed from your home or business. Government agencies like the EPA warn that there are no safe levels of radon. It’s 1000 times more dangerous than any other carcinogen, according to the EPA.
Radon testing and mitigation go hand in hand, and a professional company like Radon Testing and Mitigation PNW can perform both services for you quickly and efficiently. From start to finish, you won’t need another team for radon gas removal or the sensitive testing that detects it. The radon gas removal you can depend on is our specialty!
Radon Mitigation Process
Radon mitigation is the process of removing harmful radon and putting a system in place that will prevent it from getting trapped again. When we find high levels of radon in a home or business, we immediately begin discussing options with the owners. Often, radon mitigation system installation is the answer that the customer is looking for. We can install one of these systems within a day or two, and it will keep your home or place of business radon-free for years to come.
A simple radon fan that diverts excess gas from the soil surrounding your home is all it takes to make your home safer and reduce the risk of cancer significantly. Radon mitigation systems are discreet and inexpensive, especially if you have one installed while you are building new construction. Radon mitigation system cost varies from one structure to the next, so to get your most accurate quote, you’ll need to call our office and have an inspection done by one of our trained, experienced pros.
Radon Mitigation System
There are many types of radon mitigation systems. Some take advantage of the fact that radon is the heaviest known gas and that it is water soluble, using water and fans to trap and push out the radon gas. Others only employ fans. Depending on the layout of your home and the prevalence of radon, you may have your choice of radon remediation systems.
Radon gas mitigation is absolutely necessary if radon levels above 4 pCi/L are found. In both homes and businesses, air gets trapped inside the structure, and you must have a system in place that will properly ventilate the air. The options you have will depend on the complexity of your foundation and floor-plan.
Radon can permeate insulation, wood paneling, concrete block, sheetrock, and most other building materials to enter your home, so it stands to reason that your HVAC air filters aren’t sufficient to remove radon from the interior air. Only a professionally installed radon mitigation system can efficiently remove cancer-causing radon from your home or business.
Radon Mitigation Cost
Radon gas removal is a job best handled by professionals. There are do-it-yourself radon mitigation systems that you can purchase at home improvement stores which vary widely in price and efficiency. These systems generally consist of a radon fan and some piping. Depending on the size of your home, you might have to purchase more piping to run it all the way up to your attic. For less than $500, you can buy a kit, but you will still have to handle the proper installation yourself.
A professional installation done by an expert like the ones at Radon Testing and Mitigation PNW will cost more, as you might expect. Your radon mitigation cost can fall anywhere between $700 and $3000. Buildings with more complex floor-plans and foundation structures tend to be the most expensive.
There are distinct benefits for choosing to let a pro install your radon mitigation system. With professional installation, you have the guarantee that the job is done right and that you have the right sized fan for your home. We also include post-installation testing with our installations, so our radon mitigation cost works out to be a better value than individually priced services from our competitors.
Approximately 70,000 people die from lung cancer every year. Thousands of these deaths – ones where radon gas exposure is the culprit – are preventable. Having your home screened for radon gas and being proactive about its presence in your home or placed of business with radon mitigation is the best way to protect the ones you are responsible for protecting! Let Radon Testing and Mitigation PNW in Portland Oregon be a part of your complete radon testing and mitigation plan!
