Radon Mitigation in Maine is Essential for a Safe Home Environment

Smoking is considered the leading cause of lung cancer, and radon is the second leading cause. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer for non-smokers. A combination of smoking and radon exposure vastly multiplies the risk. Maine radon mitigation is of the utmost importance.

Radon is Created by the Breakdown of Uranium

Radon gas, created by the breakdown of uranium deposits in soil and rocks, is present everywhere. It is measured at an average level of 0.4 pCi/L in outdoor air. Air pressure inside a home is generally lower than the outside air because of temperature differences. The warmer inside air rises and creates a vacuum inside the home. Other causes are venting fans and clothes dryers. Fireplaces and gas furnaces also create a negative pressure inside the home. The vacuum sucks radon gas into the house from the soil.

No Level of Radon is Safe

There is no safe level of radon, but the EPA recommends Maine radon mitigation at levels of 4 pCi/L or higher. Since a lower radon level is better, you may also consider taking Maine radon mitigation steps when readings are between 2.0 and 4.0 pCi/L Testing is needed before beginning a radon mitigation program in Maine. A short-term test runs from 2 to 90 days. Over 90 days is considered long-term. The reading gives the average radon level over the time period of the test. These are called passive tests. Typically, a canister is placed in the room to be tested, and it is mailed to a test lab at the end of the period.

An active test is run using a meter, which requires power. The homeowner can buy a meter which provides both short-term and long term readings.

A Licensed Maine Radon Mitigation Contractor is Essential

Radon Map of Maine

Maine radon mitigation can be accomplished by several means. The first step in Maine radon mitigation is to hire a qualified Maine radon mitigation contractor. Get estimates from one or more Maine radon mitigation contractors. Maine requires these contractors to be licensed. This assures the homeowner that the contractor has training in all phases of Maine radon mitigation.

When you are ready to take Maine radon mitigation measures in your home, contact a reputable Maine radon mitigation contractor. Modern Maine radon mitigation methods can reduce radon levels as much as 99%.

Crack Sealing is a Basic Step

The first step in Maine radon mitigation would be to seal all basement and foundation cracks and increase natural ventilation. Soil suction, removing radon from beneath the concrete basement floor, is a common method of Maine radon mitigation. The same procedure would apply if the house is built on a concrete slab. A large plastic pipe may be inserted in a hole drilled in the concrete slab. An in-line fan exhausts the radon through a vent to the roof level. The resulting vacuum also reduces radon infiltration into the home.

 

A Well-ventilated Crawlspace May Prevent Radon Infiltration

A crawlspace may be covered with a heavy plastic sheet. A fan is then used to vent the radon, from below the sheet, to the outside. In warm climates, the crawlspace may have enough natural ventilation that no Maine radon mitigation is needed.

In more difficult cases, Maine radon mitigation methods such as home pressurization and air-to-air heat exchangers may be needed.

Once installed, a Maine radon mitigation system must be checked for proper operation and maintained.

The key to Maine radon mitigation is hiring a knowledgeable Maine radon mitigation expert.
