What is radon gas?
Radon, a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is prevalent in Middle Tennessee, is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, killing approximately 22,000 people each year. A typical home is exposed to radon gases through the exposed soil in the crawlspace, which then enters the indoor air through cracks and leaks in the home, including the ducts.
Radon testing and mitigation.
E3 INNOVATE can conduct a home inspection for radon and implement a radon mitigation system, if necessary. Our radon testing will provide the data that is necessary to develop an effective strategy to help radon dissipate from your home. The mitigation systems we design lower your home’s radon count to a safer level, ensuring the air you and your loved ones breathe is healthy.
We will design a radon mitigation system that is customized to your home's needs. Whether high levels of the gas were found in your home after radon testing was performed or you would like to implement a radon mitigation system as a preventative measure, we make sure your home will be healthy and safe for years to come.
My house tested to a safe level of radon during the purchase process. Does that mean it will always be safe?
Just as radon levels can vary from house to house, they can also vary throughout time at the same house. This is why we recommend radon testing every 2 years.
My next-door neighbor's house was recently tested for radon and a safe level was found. Does that mean that my house is safe, too?
Unfortunately, no. Radon levels can vary from house to house. In fact, it is not uncommon for two adjacent houses to have drastically different radon levels.
