Radon is a radioactive gas that is naturally released in the air from rocks and soil. It can be found in the air outside and can get inside Connecticut buildings and homes, where it can build up. No level of radon is considered safe. Testing is the only way to know if you've got a radon problem in your home. But what happens if your home has a high level of radon? Radon levels can be lowered with a technique called radon mitigation. Radon mitigation can also be called radon abatement or radon reduction. Lowering the radon level in your home can reduce your risk of harmful health effects, including lung cancer caused by radon exposure.

The first step in reducing home radon levels is to test your home to determine the concentration of radon gas in the air. Whether it's a DIY test kit or you hire us for radon testing, if your home radon levels are above 4 pCi/L (picocuries per liter), contact us to install a radon reduction (also called radon mitigation) system. We provide quick, no-obligation assessments and estimates for radon mitigation system installation.
When installed by an experienced radon mitigation specialist, a radon mitigation system will lower the concentration of radon gas in your interior air to reduce the radon levels as much as possible. The EPA established the 4.0 pCi/L radon action level. Anything level above that should be lowered with radon mitigation.
A typical radon mitigation system consists of a large-diameter plastic pipe that connects the air beneath your foundation to the outdoors. An in-line fan sucks radon-rich air from beneath your foundation and expels this hazardous air to the exterior.
Before installing a radon mitigation system, we can run a radon test to determine if radon abatement is necessary. Our radon mitigation professionals can determine the best reduction system to install for your home's foundation.
Lowering high radon levels requires specific technical knowledge and special skills of a qualified radon mitigation contractor. Without the proper experience, training, and expertise, you risk increasing your radon level or creating other potential hazards and additional costs. CT Radon and Well Water Solutions is knowledgeable about CT radon levels and when homes require radon mitigation.
