Winston M. called Georgia Healthy Homes after running several long-term radon tests in the basement of his Covington, GA home. The basement was finished and had his home office and a home gym. They all spent a lot of time down there.
We offered an exterior aesthetic package to Winston but he thought the trees would hide it well enough and he was right.

A family in the Sterling Lake subdivision of Jefferson, GA was planning to finish their basement and was advised to test for radon before proceeding with the renovation. The bought a test kit from a hardware store and the results came back over 8 pCi/L. They contacted Georgia Healthy Homes to do a retest and to provide a free estimate on a radon mitigation system.
Our radon test resulted in an average of 10.1 pCi/L. The family was planning to finish almost the entire basement and requested that the system be placed under the stairwell. This was a difficult location but we were up for the challenge. It required running the pipe on the exterior of the home, which is pretty normal, but we needed to use a 40 ft ladder for the installation.
The homeowner reported that their retest after the mitigation was installed showed an average concentration of radon of 2.5 pCi/L.
If you are planning on finishing your basement, make sure you test for radon first. If you are concerned with the radon levels, call Georgia Healthy Homes for a free consultation today.
We installed a radon mitigation system for a homeowner in Athens, GA that was planning on finishing the basement of her 1960s ranch home in the Forest Heights subdivision. Thankfully, she had a radon test before her contractor began the work. We were able to reduce the levels in the basement from over 5 pCi/L to below 1.0 pCI/L.
A concerned homeowner in the Forest Heights neighborhood in Athens, GA called us for radon testing and mitigation. She works from home and has a home gym in her basement. She had done some short term testing on her own and felt the results we inconsistent and confusing. She requested that we run a longer test than normal so she would have confidence in the overall average. We decided to run the test for 9 days.
The first test we conducted had an overall average of 2.9 pCi/L. This is below the EPA average but she wanted to get the levels below 2.0 pCi/L because she spends so much time in her home. The report showed that there were daily spikes in the levels up to 5.8 pCi/L. We were very confident we could help her meet her radon reduction goals.
After installing a radon mitigation system, we retested the home. She was thrilled with the results. The average was 0.7 pCi/L with a maximum reading of 1.32 pCi/L. The mitigation was a success and we were able to deliver the results she needed to feel comfortable spending so much time at home.
