In addition to residential radon testing, NE Radon Doctors currently offers testing for the following:
Radon in water can effectively be reduced using one of two methods: aeration treatment or granular activated charcoal.
Aeration involves spraying the water or mixing it with air and then venting the radon. Granular activated charcoal systems filter the water through a charcoal bed. The radon is retained in the charcoal and the water leaves the charcoal tank relatively free of radon. The charcoal needs to be replaced on a regular basis.
In both of these treatment methods, it is important to treat the water where it enters the home. Trying to treat the water at the kitchen sink, for instance, would not be effective in reducing the amount of radon that enters the home. It is important to properly maintain home water treatment systems according to manufacturer's recommendations since failure to do so can lead to other water contamination problems. Aeration systems cost approximately $2800-$4500. Charcoal systems cost approximately $1,000 - $1,500.
If you want to estimate how much of the radon in the air is caused by radon in the water, use the following rule of thumb. For every 10,000 pCi/L of radon in the water, 1 pCi/L would be emitted into the air. For example, if there is 40,000 pCi/L in the water, this will contribute about 4 pCi/L to the air.
A typical air radon removal method is the Active Soil Depressurization system. With this system we core a 3 to 4 inch hole in the foundation floor and excavate a small suction pit under the floor. A PVC pipe is sealed to the hole and run to the out side of the home. A suction fan is attached to the pipe. This fan produces a negative pressure under the floor and the radon gas is drawn to the fan and exhausted out of the home.
HRV, or Heat Recovery Ventilator is another radon removal option often used in older homes and homes where Active Soil Depressurization is unlikely to be successful. These systems bring in a continuous supply of fresh air and exhaust contaminated air.
Every home is different and we have the experience to remove the radon from any home.
