Radon might be one of those things that you have only a little bit of familiarity with. This is true for most people since a lot of the radon and radon mitigation is not something that we generally hear a heck of a lot about. It’s something that is out there that we need to have done to our homes or our work places every once and a while and that is about it.
Radon and then on the other side, radon abatement is a gas that is released from the soil as radioactive elements in the soil break down and decay. There is nothing that can be done to get rid of or stop the process of the development of radon but it’s not all that difficult to air out and solve so there isn’t much of a reason to either. Most of the time if the radon is able to rise out of the soil and mix with the rest of the air, the concentration is so low that it doesn’t really make any difference to the human body. It is only when the radon starts to find and then build up these little pockets where the radon is quite concentrated that it can start to be a big problem. Another danger is if the radon finds it’s way into one of your water pipes in your home or in your place of work. This is mostly a problem because you don’t want a poisonous gas in your drinking water and to wash your body and your face every day with something that causes cancer. When you get a company like SWAT Environmental to come and do a radon mitigation survive to your home or to where you work, they will go through and find all of the places where radon is building up or getting into your home and then clear it out with a ventilation system and then make sure that the radon won’t have the chance to build up in the same way again.
