It is important to bring in a professional for testing and radon mitigation if this gas is found within your Asheville, NC home.
Radon is a naturally occurring product of the element uranium. As it decays, it produces its own chain of particles that can lead to health problems when humans breathe these particles. It comes into a residential or commercial property through the soil around the building or the water used to bathe, prepare food, and provide for personal hygiene needs. Some areas of the country have higher radon levels than others, but many homeowners will deal with radon at some point.
In Asheville, North Carolina, we are in the moderate to high zone for radon occurrence. Radon causes lung and other types of cancer, so it is well worth it to bring in a professional for testing and radon mitigation if this gas is found within your home.
At Dry Foundation Technologies, we are experienced in providing radon mitigation services for customers in and around Asheville. One way to prevent it from getting back into the building is to seal any areas that are exposed to the outdoors. Sealing and fixing cracks in the foundation and walls can prevent radon from getting back in. Most of the methods that are used to reduce levels of moisture in crawlspaces and basements can also help reduce the levels of radon that are present.
Our technicians can come into your home or business to perform the testing process, and then provide solutions for complete radon mitigation. At Dry Foundation Technologies, our goal is to provide a safe and healthy atmosphere for you and your family or your staff members.
