Radon Mitigation Sub-slab Method In Oconomowoc
According to the EPA's "A Citizen's Guide to Radon", Sub-slab is a radon mitigation method "primarily used is a vent pipe system and fan, which pulls radon from beneath the house and vents it to the outside", sub-slab depressurization or active depressurization or soil suction, is the most common approach to reducing elevated levels of the toxin. These indoor radon levels may be mitigated using this sub-slab depressurization method which will exhaust the gas air out and into the outside atmosphere. It must be driven to the outdoors, kept apart from windows and other openings to buildings. "EPA generally recommends methods which prevent the entry of radon. Soil suction, for example, prevents radon from entering your home by drawing the radon from below the home and venting it through a pipe, or pipes, to the air above the home where it is quickly diluted" and "EPA does not recommend the use of sealing alone to reduce radon because, by itself, sealing has not been shown to lower radon levels significantly or consistently" according to the EPA's "Consumer's Guide to Radon Reduction: How to fix your home". Sometimes systems use ventilation methods to utilize a heat exchanger or energy recovery ventilator which will recover the energy or part of it which may otherwise be lost in the process dealing with the exchanging of air to the outside.
Sub-slab depressurization (SSD) systems are the most commonly used method used in radon mitigation. As a matter of fact, the Environment Protection Agency (EPA) recommends this system when mitigating radon. Sub-slab systems is also a great tool in diminishing any risk that associates itself with vapor intrusion. Sub-slab radon mitigation systems are the best way, when possible to remove elevated levels, hands down. Ask about our guarantee.

Here is another way to explain the process
There are several different ways to remediate levels of Radon in a home, but for the most part, it can be abated by using active sub-slab depressurization systems. This method consists of core drilling a 5-inch hole directly into concrete slab, then a pipe is inserted in side this hole, then it is sealed up. A pipe is ran outside to a radon fan. This radon fan will suck out radon from the soil, through the home and discharge to the outdoors, above the roof line (which is recommended by EPA).
Often, pipe is run directly from the basement or crawlspace and to the attic, where the radon fan is installs to ventilate the gas through the roof. The slab of the basement has to be sealed completely, which includes sealing expansion joints, holes from other pipes, sump holes and other cracks in the slab. The electric could also need to be routed to attach the radon fan in a new location. Often, more than one pipe is needed to connect, depending upon the slab size and the type of aggregate/soil underneath.
