Radon is a hazardous, naturally occurring noble gas that results from the decay of trace amounts of uranium found in the earth's crust. Odorless and invisible, radon has been classified (by the Environmental Protection Agency) as a carcinogen since 1988, and is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer in Canada. Because radon is an unstable gas, it breaks down and dissipates quickly in the open air. Dangerous levels of radon can accumulate inside a house in the lower levels, however. The soil under and around the house is by far the largest source of radon gas, but it is also present in well water, building materials, public water supplies and outdoor air.
Canadian guidance recommends active Radon mitigation if levels exceed 200 Becquerels per cubic meter. (200 Bq/m3) The Becquerel is defined as the activity of a quantity of radioactive material in which one nucleus decays per second.
High Radon levels can be fixed permanently in less than one day.
most Radon mitigation systems use Active Soil Depressurization (ASD) to reverse the normal flow of soil gas. this is the most effective technique to reduce Radon levels. this system consists of A Radon fan, PVC piping to draw air out from under the concrete slab or a plastic crawl space membrane that will depressurize the soil underneath.
