How Do I Know If I Need a Mitigation System?

Radon isn’t just a silent guest in most houses – it’s a serious health risk that can harm your family if left unaddressed. The first step is understanding how radon enters your home and its potential health consequences is key. We will discuss professional testing methods for radon and why a radon mitigation system could be one of the best investments for your family’s well-being.

Trusting a professional for all of these steps is critical, the licensed team at Air Sense Environmental have gone through hours of extensive national training and perform over 100 radon test a month. Ensuring the levels are accurate, the correct area of the home is being tested, and the appropriate monitor being used is approved for your state or region.

The initial test takes 48-hours. The home DOES NOT have to be vacant and homeowners are allowed to live their daily lives as they usually do. Closed building conditions are required and your Air Sense Environmental radon tester will go over those details before the your test. Once the results are back, it’s simple. If your house has any level over a 2.5 pCi/L, mitigation is recommended. While no level is safe, the EPA suggest mitigation at all levels over a 4.0pCi/L.

How Effective Is Radon Mitigation in St. Louis?

One of the more popular questions we get and we have a very simple answer. Post test. At Air Sense Environmental we recommend post testing every radon mitigation that we install in the St. Louis Area. Not only is this for your peace of mind, it’s for ours too. Sometimes there are hidden entry points that allow radon into the home and could be missed. At Air Sense Environmental we guarantee a level below a 4.0 pCi/L or your money back. The health and well being of your home is our number one priority, so we want to make it sure it’s right. Once a safe level is proven, it is suggested that a radon test be performed on every active radon mitigation system every two years. Check out our radon testing blog post to learn how radon fluctuates with weather, pressure, and naturally occurring changes in the soil.

Before and After

Radon mitigation is proven to reduce radon levels up to 99%. Below you will find a recent case study we performed on a house in the St. Louis Area. As you can see our initial test found that the radon levels in the home were elevated at a 13.5 pCi/L or almost 4 times the EPA recommended limit. Once the test results were back, we were able to schedule our initial mitigation consultation with the home owner, discuss system options, radon entry points, and placement of the system. After 24-hours of an active system we deployed another radon monitor for our recommended post test. After the 48-hour test was complete, we were successful in mitigating this St. Louis area home from radon and providing the family with a peace of mind.
