Radon Mitigation Interior

Radon Mitigation Exterior


Radon Mitigation is simply removing the radon from your home or office. This can be achieved through many different ways. For homes on a basement or sub-slab the most reliable being a sub-slab depressurization system. If your home is on a crawl space then you would want a sub-membrane depressurization system. Below you will find a small guide to how Iowa Radon Testing and Mitigation Services goes about installing a Radon Mitigation System.


Should You Mitigate?


The EPA recommends that everyone should mitigate if the results of the test are 4.0pCi/l or more. So what does 4.0pCi/l mean. Well lets put it in everyday terms. According to Radon Awareness "If you live in a home for 1 year that has exactly 4.0 pCi/L then your radiation exposure is the same as 200 chest x-rays per year."

Radon:  The House of Representatives


The radon bill from last year passed out of the House of Representatives on Tuesday by a vote of 99-1. The bill was amended and now requires the Department of Education to send a letter on the risk associated with radon, including but not limited to, information on radon testing and mitigation, relevant statistically data, and the funding sources available to all public and nonpublic schools. School districts will then have to report back to the department if they have a radon testing and mitigation plan in place.  The information will then be shared to the legislature by January 1, 2015.  

The bill now moves to the Senate where they can either concur with the House version or insist on their version. If the Senate concurs, the bill will go to the governor; if they insist on their version it will go to a conference committee for further negotiations.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) was awarded nearly $10.5 million in grants designed to protect children and other vulnerable groups from health hazards in their homes.  This funding highlights the link between housing and health and develops cost effective methods for mitigation residential hazards.  HUD’s grants are being awarded to academic and non-profit research institutions studying new methods to recognize and control residential health and safety hazards such as asthma triggers, bed bugs, mold and radon
