If you’re building a new home or commercial building, one important thing to consider is radon. Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that can seep into your building from the ground, and it’s the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. That’s why it’s crucial to install a radon mitigation system during the construction process.
A new construction radon mitigation system is a system that is installed during the construction process to prevent radon gas from entering the building. It typically involves installing a vent pipe and fan to draw the radon gas out of the soil and redirect it outside.
Installing a radon mitigation system during new construction is more cost-effective than retrofitting an existing building. It can also help protect the health of your family or employees and increase the resale value of your property.
Many states and localities require new construction to have a radon mitigation system installed. Check with your local building codes to determine if a radon mitigation system is required in your area.
The cost of a new construction radon mitigation system can vary depending on the size and complexity of the building, as well as the location of the building. We can give you a free quote by calling (515) 724-3018.
A radon mitigation system can greatly reduce the levels of radon gas in a building, but it may not eliminate all radon gas. It’s important to regularly test for radon levels to ensure that the system is functioning properly.
