MITIGATION SYSTEM DESIGN
One size does not fit all
A long-term radon test is the only way to know if a mitigation system is suitable for your home. Health Canada has established a radon guideline of 200 Bq/m . For comparison, the World Health Organization has set a radon guideline of
100 Bq/m . The United States Environmental Protection Agency has set a radon guideline of 148 Bq/m (4 pCi/L). While these guidelines help to understand radon conentrations, there is no known safe level of radon exposure.
Regardless of the specific guideline, it is generally accepted that radon concentrations should be reduced to As Low As Reasonably Achieveable (ALARA).
Mitigation systems are designed to reduce radon concentrations in the home. While each building offers unique opportunities and challenges, our approach is to use diagnostic test results and engineering principles to design a system that addresses the radon issue in your building.
