Radon Mitigation

Location: Ann Arbor. MI

Problem: The owner had a radon test performed upon purchasing the home. The basement was partially finished and it was expected that his wife and 3 sons would be spending a lot of time in the basement area.The test came back with a 6+ pcl count of radon. The EPA recommends anything over 4 pcl be mitigated while the World Health Org. states anything over 2.7 pcl.

Solution: AdvantaClean installed a complete Radon system beginning in the basement area sub floor and extending out to the exterior above the roof line to safely divert the Radon out and away from the home. After retesting the results were (1) pcl. Well within the acceptable range!
