What Radon Protection steps are you taking?

The EPA has a list of recommendations to help you on your radon protection mission:

1) Whether you are buying or selling a home, you should have it tested for radon.

2) If you are building a new home built, ask if radon-resistant construction features are an option.  If the home is already constructed, ask if radon-resistant methods were used & if the home has been tested for radon.

3) If you have your home tested & it comes back with radon levels of 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L), or higher, then you should have a mitigation system installed by a licensed radon professional.

4) Even if your radon levels come back lower than 4.0 pCi/L, it can still pose a risk. It is possible to have those levels reduced.

5) When you are having a radon test done, take steps to prevent device interference so that your results come back accurately.

Simple radon protection techniques can be applied to help lower radon levels and increase energy efficiency in your home. The EPA offers some suggestions to help:

1) Check your area’s radon potential  – when looking to buy a new home, check the EPA’s map of radon zones to show which areas have the greatest potential for elevated indoor radon readings.

2) Install a Radon Reduction System – Installing a radon remediation system helps to lower the levels of radon in your home. You can always have a passive system installed.

3) Test your home – you should have your home tested every 5 years, or with each new occupancy.

4) Activate your system – if your radon levels come back high in a test & you have a passive system installed in your home, have a licensed professional activate your system.

"The technicians at Trinity services were extremely professional. It was a pleasure to open up our home to them. My wife and I were extremely impressed with how neat and clean they worked. A lot of contractors just don't care, but I could tell that Trinity was not one of those contractors."

Bruce – Naperville, IL

"I met Josiah last week when he came out to 310 S Rosedale in Aurora to consult with my clients about the house they are buying. I was very impressed by both his knowledge and wiliness to answer questions. Far too many in the trades are not quite so customer centric. In any case, it is my pleasure to recommend your company to other agents and to my own clients in the future."
