What is Radon?
Radon is a
cancer causing radioactive gas. It comes from the natural
decay of uranium that is found in nearly all soils. It moves
into your home through cracks and other holes in the
concrete slab. Nearly 1 out of 15 homes throughout the
United States is estimated to have elevated levels.
see radon but it's not hard to find out if you have a radon
problem. Contact us for ways to test for radon. If your home has tested
over the E.P.A.'s action level of 4.0 pCi/L you
should consider installing a radon reduction
After you have tested and
found the radon levels to be elevated higher than the
E.P.A.'s action levels; the next step is to identify which
radon reduction system is right for you. For a free
consultation call us at (608)758-0291.
Now we have identified which radon reduction system is
right for you and your home. We use schedule 40 PVC
piping (the same as a plumber uses for waste-lines) for
sound reduction and longevity of the system. For our
outside systems we use materials that can withstand the
Midwest winters ie. freeze-up, condensation,
etc. Also, any piping in the attic is
wrapped with insulation. Pipes running through the
garage firewall are wrapped with intumescent collars
per fire code. We install a specially designed cap on the
exhaust pipe to prevent rain from coming in and freeze-up.
When we retro-fit existing houses, we take pride in making
our system look clean and tight as if it were there when
the house was being built! We always install a menometer
(device that measures pressure) to the pipe so the
homeowner can make sure that the system is working
properly. Installing a radon mitigation system is highly
recommended during the construction of a new home. Along
with the suction pipe we install a sump
crock and tile system.
Due to our expertise
and dedication to our clients we are able to give a
Lifetime Guarantee to reduce radon in your home below
the E.P.A.'s action level. A 5 year warranty is given
on all materials.
The American Association of Radon Scientists &
A.T. Pro Mitigation Systems
wants to make sure you have all the right knowledge to
confirm how important it is to have an A.T. Pro
Mitigation System installed. This website will give
you further advice and assure you we have the experience
and knowledge to get rid of the radon in your home!
