Radon Mitigation System Installation Services For Southeast Wisconsin
Why Radon Mitigation Is Important
OK so you received your test results and your radon levels are under 4.0pCi/L. Congratulations, good for you! On the other hand, if your radon levels are above 4.0pCi/L then you and your family are being exposed to a dangerous level of radon at this very minute.
Remember, radon is a cancer causing radioactive gas and the major health problems associated with radon are well documented. You're playing with fire everyday that you wait to move forward. It's time to take action before it’s too late.
Even if you seal up your sump pit, radon will still find a way into your home. Your home has a negative air pressure which causes gases from underneath your house to be pulled up through the concrete floor in your basement. So how do you remove radon?
Radon mitigation systems use sub-slab depressurization. Radon mitigation systems sucks the gases underneath your house up through a PVC pipe attached to a fan that exhausts them into the atmosphere while also reducing air pressure below the floor, which causes air in the basement to flow downward rather than upward. Our systems can reduce radon levels by up to 99%!
Radon Gone's thorough yet efficient mitigation services are usually completed within 3 to 5 hours.The PVC pipe is put in the ground where your sump pump is installed and goes below the concrete slab of your basement floor. The piping is routed up to the nearest outside wall (excluding the your front wall), where downspout material runs up along the exterior to your roof line, where it is safely released into the atmosphere. If you do not already have a sump pump in your home, we can install one. If going into the sump pit is not a logical option, or if you do not have a sump pit, we will drill into your concrete slab floor to install the PVC piping. Radon Gone's radon mitigation system installation services can be summed up into 4 steps.
We examine the interior and exterior of your home to determine the most effective placement and configuration for our radon mitigation system.
Next, we’ll identify whether or not your sump pump is fit for the radon mitigation process. If you don’t have a sump pump, or need a replacement, we’ll do it on the spot.
Then we create an air tight seal on the sump pit and install the piping and the fan. We will drill a hole right through the concrete if that is your preference or if we deem it necessary.
Finally, we vent the gas safely above your house. We finish by thoroughly inspecting everything and clean up any messes so it was like we were never there. 3 to 5 hours later, you have a newfound peace of mind and a healthier home

What Do Radon Mitigation Services Actually Cost?
HOW WE DO IT
iT'S WORTH EVERY PENNY
Milwaukee radon mitigation
If the whole "lung cancer" thing doesn't bother you, keep in mind that installing a radon mitigation system will improve the value of your home and many times you'll need to install a radon mitigation system prior to selling your home at the request of the buyer or the real estate agent.
As a matter of fact, every state bordering Wisconsin requires radon to be reduced to a safe level before you sell your home by law. It appears to inevitable that the law will be passed in the state of Wisconsin soon, so if you have a radon mitigation system you're future-proofed.
COST OF RADON MITIGATION SERVICES
So what do radon mitigation systems actually cost? No Milwaukee radon mitigation companies seem to list the prices for radon mitigation and testing services.
Radon mitigation prices greatly vary due to the many possible configurations that a radon remediation system may need. No two systems are identical. A radon mitigation system often costs between $850 to $1100.
THE COMPANY MATTERS. ALOT
No, we will not install a very complex radon mitigation system, test, retest, install a sump pump, and cook you dinner for $750. Sorry, but if you find a company that will install a radon reduction system for $750 or less then you're most likely in for an exciting ride.
No matter what company you choose make sure they bring at least one certified radon specialist on the job. Many larger radon mitigation companies that have 14 teams of uncertified "technicians" will often claim to be professional radon specialists so be careful.
Watching the two 19-year-olds using a power tool for the first time can be a scary sight.
Having a true professional do it right will be well worth paying a few hundred dollars more.
