How Radon Enters Your Home
Radon gas enters the home through the slab, basement, or crawl space. Pressure differences within the home (from warm air rising and other natural effects) pull radon into living spaces from the soil. Furnace & air conditioning systems can distribute the air through the structure.
How Radon Enters Your Home
Soil and rock are the main causes of radon issues in homes. Due to the pressure difference between the inside and outside of your home, your home acts like a vacuum drawing radon through foundation cracks and other openings.
Whether there are cracks in the concrete slab, pores and cracks in concrete blocks or floor-wall joints, all exposed openings can allow Radon to be brought into the home.
An open drain tile system will allow radon to enter in the home at a faster rate and increase the levels of radon. A sump can also be another area where Radon can enter your home. Radon levels should be checked if either of these improvements have been made to your home since you purchased it.
Radon entering the home through water is a small risk compared with radon entering your home from the soil. Well water can can bring Radon into the home through the shower or other water sources.
While sealing may be a necessary part of the radon mitigation process, the EPA does not recommend the use of sealing alone to reduce radon because by itself, sealing has not been shown to lower radon levels significantly or consistently.
Any home may have a radon problem, new or old with or without a basement, sealed basement or not.
Radon from soil gas is the main cause of radon problems. Other less common sources include well water and building materials. Measuring radon concentration in the air is recommended for initial testing.
At Columbus Radon Mitigation we can test your property for radon, discover the source(s), and develop at solution for mitigating.
