Installation and maintenance
The only way to know your radon level is to test. We utilize instruments that are capable of getting an accurate reading in 48 hours. Two levels of radon that are relevant to your test are 4.0 and 2.7. Four picocuries/liter is the national action level where you should mitigate. 2.7 is a level where long term exposure, such as a teenager living in a basement, or someone who offices in a basement can have similar or higher risks of cancer than the 4.0 action level. In many cases, you should conduct a follow up test in a different season because radon levels will fluctuate. Radon levels are normally higher in the winter with heating systems increasing the chimney effect where air is pulled up through the house as warm air rises. Average indoor levels of radon are 1.3 picocuries/liter and outdoor average are .4 picocuries/liter. Colorado is listed in the EPA's map of radon zones, as a zone 1 which means average indoor radon levels are over 4.0 picocuries/liter. However, you still need to test due to the variability of radon levels from house to house.

The goal of mitigation is to lower radon levels to as low as reasonably achievable. Aristeia radon professionals are certified by the NRPP and are members of the AARST which means we have gone through a rigorous training program and passed the required national exam. Mitigation is typically done by attaching a fan to a pipe that vents air out from under your foundation. Additionally, a venting system may be incorporated into a crawl space by utilizing a thick plastic sheet laid over the dirt and then attaching a fan and venting the air from beneath the sheet. Respectively, each of the above are called Sub-Slab Depressurization and Sub-Membrane Depressurization and they are proven methods of lowering radon in a home. When installing a system, it's important that water lines, gas lines and electrical lines are not hit when drilling through walls and slabs. Aristeia Radon utilizes imaging equipment to ensure that we know what is behind the wall we are drilling through so that your home remains safe.
