Types of Residential Radon Mitigation Systems

We aim to help make them as hidden as possible to prevent them from affecting your house’s aesthetics. You can read further for more information on both options:
Outdoor Radon Mitigation in Denver, CO

Outdoor Mitigation

Installing an external radon mitigation system eliminates the need to impact the home’s inside. While we place it outdoors, we design it to not stick out and be an eyesore. You will also enjoy a more efficient system which will cost you less while running.

Indoor Radon Mitigation in Denver Metro area

Indoor Mitigation

The benefit of an internal radon mitigation system is there is no equipment outside the house. All the pipes and fans get installed throughout the home. We can hide them in the walls or ceilings and lead them to the roof. The downside is we may have to go through closets or bedrooms. It also requires more 90-degree pipes, which lowers its efficiency.

Radon - The Facts

  • Radon gas causes cancer and could be in your home. This radioactive gas comes from natural uranium breakdown in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe.
  • Although you can’t see, smell or taste radon it may be a problem at your home or business.
  • Radon causes many thousands of deaths each year, because when you breathe air containing radon, it can cause lung cancer.
  • The Surgeon General warns that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths. If you smoke and are breathing radon in your home, your risk of lung cancer is much higher.
  • Radon is found almost everywhere in the U.S – and Radon Mitigation Aurora Colorado services are prevalent.
  • Radon can be found in any type of building in high levels.— homes, offices, and schools. But you and your family will most likely get your greatest exposure at home or where you spend the majority of your time.

The numbers of deaths from other causes are from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s 1999-2001 National Center for Injury Prevention and Control Report and 2002 National Safety Council Reports.

Where is Radon Gas in Colorado?

Colorado Radon Levels

Radon Gas in Colorado
  • High Radon levels have been found in all 50 states and in all parts of Colorado.
  • In Colorado, about half the homes have Radon levels higher than the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommended action level of 4 picoCuries per liter (pCi/L).

Different Methods for Radon Mitigation

Our experts can also explain all the many methods we can use when installing your radon mitigation system. We can also help when there is radon in your water system. These devices are personalized to every home we work on to ensure they effectively remove the radon. Check out our different methods below:

Sub-slab depressurization

With a sub-slab depressurization system, we will core out a small opening in your foundation. Then we can dig out enough dirt to create a vacuum underneath the slab with the installed radon fan.  This vacuum causes the radon to travel to the path of least resistance, which will now be our suction hole. We will then continue to run the piping to the exterior of your home where it will be safety discharged.

If there are any large openings in the foundation, large cracks, or gaps in the floor to wall joints, they would all need to be addressed to assure that we have no loss of suction.  The system only works if we can keep the vacuum at a high level underneath the slab.

Sump pit suction

A sump pit suction system is an extremely effective radon mitigation system.  We will install the suction pipe into the lid of your sump pit.  We will then seal off the sump lid and around the pipe so that it is air tight.  This then begins to draw air through the drainage pipes that run beneath your foundation, giving us resistance free air flow, and removal of radon.

We will also install a viewing window on the lid of the sump pit so that you can monitor the water activity inside the pit.  If your sump pit is active and has a sump pump installed, you will eventually need to access that pump to replace it.  So we have designed our mitigation system to be completely removable so that you will be able to access the pump when ever you need to.

This method of mitigation will, in no way, negatively effect your sump pit, or sump pump system. The mitigation system works inline with the existing sump pit and pump.

Pre-installed passive radon system

A pre-existing passive radon system is a perforated piping system that would have been laid under the foundation when your home was built.  This is generally only in newer homes, 2013 and forward.

If your home has a passive radon system, many times you will still need to add the additional piping, suction fan and exterior exhaust to mitigate the home.   

Never assume your home is free of radon, testing is the only way to know if you have a radon problem.

Crawl space depressurization

If your home has a crawl space, it may need to be sealed with a vapor barrier in order to reduce your radon levels.

When there is a sump pit, we are often able to reduce the radon levels without sealing the crawl space because we are able to pull so much air from beneath the surface that it does not allow the radon to move up through the crawl space and into your home.   

We seal your crawl space using a heavy duty 6mil plastic and a premium construction adhesive to bond the vapor barrier to the foundation walls.  This will prevent any radon, air, or moisture to pass through the vapor barrier.  When we pair the sealed vapor barrier with a core penetration, sump pit suction, or crawl space depressurization mitigation system, we are able to cause the air, that would naturally travel through the crawl space, to be pulled to our suction point and then exhausted outside.

Every home is different, there are many factors that will dictate whether or not your crawl space will need to be sealed.  Since it is sometimes needed and sometimes not, we offer you a phased system approach.  We would only do one step at a time until the desired radon levels are achieved.  This can potentially save you hundreds, even thousands depending on the size of your crawl space.  Our experienced technicians will walk you through your options upon arrival to your home.
