Mitigate Radon

• Radon exposure can be reduced to safe levels through proper mitigation.

• The amount of radon in the air is measured in picoCuries per liter of air, or pCi/L.If your result is 4 pCi/L or higher, you should consider radon mitigation.

• Radon problems are generally simple and cost-effective to repair. Mitigation systems for existing homes average $1,200, depending primarily on the type of foundation and the size of the home.

• If a buyer is considering purchasing a new construction home, they may want to consider having the builder incorporate a radon mitigation system. During initial construction, these can be effective and cost-efficient.
