The first step in mitigation is testing to see if the indoor-air radon concentrations should be reduced. The US, Minnesota and Wisconsin standard for reducing air-born radon in homes as far as practicable below the action level of 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L). Our testing equipment is state-of-the-art and will provide results quickly and non-intrusively.
At Midwest Radon Solutions, our goal is to reduce the levels in your home to as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA). While the standard may be 4 pCi/L, our benchmark is to obtain less than 2 pCi/L. We utilize sub-slab depressurization mitigation method in our systems, which essentially uses a vent pipe installed beneath the foundation slab and a fan which equalizes pressure between below the slab and inside the house, thereby preventing radon from diffusing into the house.
