Colorado Springs Radon Mitigation
In Colorado Springs we are known to have concentrated levels of uranium in some areas of our soil. Radon is quite common and is a naturally occurring element in many areas of the world. As these radioactive elements break down or go through what’s sometimes known as a decay series they release radon gas as a “decay product”. This gas travels through the soil and can radiate into the air.
Unfortunately, sometimes the path that radon rich air takes is through your home.
Radon can find its way into buildings through foundation cracks. This can often allow radon to build up in homes and business properties. When not allowed to dissipate normally, radon can build up to a dangerous level. Therefor becoming dangerous to the inhabitants of a home or business.

How Does Mitigation Work?

A commonly installed radon mitigation system is a sub slab depressurization system, which creates suction to an area under your building. This allows radon to be funneled out of where it has the potential to harm you or your family. This is a preferred method if you’re home or business doesn’t have a sump pump or French drain.
