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.

Radon mitigations systems don't have to be ugly! Sometimes the best looking installation is through the roof. This slab home was completely finished on the interior with very few options for installing an extraction point. (There were none at the back of the home.) The homeowner agreed that the best thing to do was to route the piping into and up through the garage. The exterior piping is only visible from the neighbor's yard.

Job Stories From Athens, GA
Saving Another Real Estate Sale in Athens, GA

Josh A called us to see if we could install a radon mitigation system in a home he was trying to sell and get a clear test result in 10 days. Of course! That's what we do!

Athens, GA has a hot real estate market and Josh's home went under contract quickly. The prospective buyer had a radon test with their home inspection that resulted in an average radon level of 8.2 pCi/L. They almost walked but their REALTOR assured them that this was not difficult to correct. They requested a radon mitigation system and a radon test that demonstrated average levels below the EPA action level before their closing, two weeks later. 

This kind of situation is very stressful for both buyers and sellers and we knew we could help get both parties to the closing table. The seller needed a responsive mitigation contractor that would deal with the issue quickly and the buyer needed a system that was guaranteed to work.

The next day we went to his home, did a thorough inspection, and designed a mitigation system. This was a slab home with a completely finished interior including new flooring throughout. Our options were limited. There were no closets or hidden spaces on the back of the home. We suggested tapping into the sub-slab in the master bedroom closet, running the piping into the garage, and up through the garage ceiling. The piping would run to the exterior through the roof over the garage. The piping in the garage would be a great location for the system manometer that shows the occupants the system is on and working.

The installation proceeded as planned. Afterward, a continuous radon monitor was set with a 24 hour delay to make sure the home returned to closed-house conditions. (Many mitigators recommend waiting 5-7 days but this is rarely necessary.) Despite having severe weather during the entire post-mitigation test, we were able to reduce the average radon level to 0.6 pCi/L.

Don't let high radon levels derail your real estate transaction!

Radon Mitigation System Inspection in Athens, GA

A homeowner in the Westgate Park subdivision of Athens called us after doing a radon test in his home that came back over 4 pCi/L. They purchased the home 3 years ago and it already had a radon mitigation system installed and wanted to know if the system was working properly. The basement was almost completely finished and one of the family members slept in the basement.

We inspected the system and the fan was functional but the operating pressure was 2.5" WC. The manufacturer's maximum recommended operating pressure is 2.3" WC and their fan curve shows that the typical airflow at 2.4" WC is 0 CFM. The fan was on, but it was not removing any soil gas. The data tag left by the installer showed that the system was installed this way. The system had never worked properly, was causing excessive wear on the fan motor, and was using more energy than was necessary.

Our customer requested a radon test using a continuous radon monitor. We ran a 7-day test and the average was 7.9 pCi/L. 

Since we did not install the system we recommended diagnostics and pressure field extension testing before we designed a solution. This can include digging a larger pit, adding an extraction point, and/or replacing the fan. 

If you have a radon system installed in your home, make sure you conduct a retest every two years. If you suspect that the system is not working properly, call us to inspect your radon mitigation system.
