RADON TESTING & MEASUREMENT

To determine if your home has elevated radon levels, we will perform a short term test of at least 48 hours. The test devices must remain undisturbed for 48 to 96 hours under closed house conditions and be placed in the lowest livable area of the home. Closed house conditions means all windows and doors remain closed during testing except for minimal opening and closing of doors for exit and entry to the home. Short term closed house radon testing is the quickest way to determine the potential for a radon problem.

RADON MITIGATION

If your home has elevated radon levels, we will install a suitable radon mitigation system. Typically the most effective radon mitigation method in Arizona is sub slab depressurization (ssd). This involves penetrating the concrete slab in your home and using a small fan and PVC piping to vent air to the outside of the home from underneath the slab. This creates lower pressure underneath the slab than above, preventing the radon from seeping into the home. Instead the radon gas is vented to the outside where it is safely dispersed.

INSPECTION & CONSULTING

If you are looking to buy a home with an existing radon mitigation system in place, we will inspect the system to ensure that it is correctly installed and is functioning properly. We also offer our expertise in consulting with builders and homeowners who are interested in building a new home with radon safety in mind. New homes can be built in Arizona for relatively little added cost that will make the home radon-proof. Green In The Valley has performed radon mitigation projects for the real estate industry from Northeast Scottsdale to the Southeast valley area.
