FAQs about commercial radon mitigation

  • Why should I do radon-resistant work during construction?

    Radon systems are becoming a standard part of the new construction process. In fact, some financial institutions require systems during the building process to finance the project. HUD, The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, is leading the conversation. On February 12, 2021, the Federal Housing Finance Agency, FHFA, directed Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae to adopt EPA-recommended multi-family measurement and mitigation radon requirements used by HUD.

    Installing a system during construction makes it easier to design something aesthetically pleasing. We can also hide fans in the attic or on the roof to prevent unsightly systems on the exterior of the buildings. After all, you have a new building and want it to look the best it can!

    Installing systems during construction also allows the best opportunity to reduce levels as much as possible before finishing and conducting radon testing.

  • What are the design options for installing a radon mitigation system?

    Radon comes from the soil and pulls naturally into the building’s lowest level. It can move throughout the structure either from the stack effect or mechanical air systems. Once trapped in the building, it will break down into radon decay products, which may cause lung cancer. Most people are unaware that there are multiple ways to prevent radon from being an issue in their new building. You can have two types of systems. Passive or Active.

    Passive systems provide a pathway for the radon gases to naturally flow from below the concrete to exhaust above the roofline - this includes work done before and after pouring concrete slabs. Vapor collection matting or perforated PVC runs, vapor barriers, and PVC risers that extend from the ground to the roofline are all part of the process.

    Active systems include all the work a passive system requires but adds one more element: radon fans. These electrical fans pull the air rather than relying on the natural airflow from the stack effect. Activating a passive system is the best way to reduce radon as low as possible.

    Your design specialist will discuss your goals in detail to provide the best plan of action that fits your budget. We can also modify your blueprints to include the radon design that better fits the planning process.

  • Do you conduct a radon test after completion?

    Yes, we are licensed to test in Nebraska, Missouri, and Iowa. Once the new building is complete, we will follow all industry standards to ensure the property is safe for occupancy.
