Larry V. in Lake City, MN had learned about the dangers of radon gas when he visited our booth at a local home show. One of our Design Specialists, Mac Cole, explained to Larry that radon exposure causes 15% of the world's lung cancer cases and kills more than 20,000 people each year. Larry didn't know that the effects of radon gas exposure could be so detrimental to your health. He set an appointment right away to have his home tested.
The test results showed that Larry did in fact have high levels of radon in his home. Mac explained the process of installing our radon mitigation system and Larry decided he wanted it to be installed as soon as possible. During the installation process, our crew drilled a hole through the floor in the basement to insert a PVC pipe and create a suction point for the radon gas. Then the gas is vented through the pipe and out of the home. Larry is relieved that he took the necessary steps to make sure his family's health is no longer compromised.

Ms. Eastland had discovered her home was exposing her to high levels of radon gas, almost 3x the acceptable limit. In order to properly mitigate the gas from her home, American Waterworks needed to seal off the dirt crawlspace located on the North side of her basement. By combining our CleanSpace vapor barrier and SilverGlo wall insulation systems, American Waterworks was able to create a suction point in the crawl space to pull the radon from within the home and expel it outside the house.
Mr. Abrams' home in Northfield, MN tested high for radon at 20.0 pCi/L. The EPA recommends for homeowners to take corrective action if your radon level is at 4 pCi/L or higher. Our Design Specialist, Michael Radosevich developed a solution to mitigate Mr. Abrams' high level of radon. Foreman Dakota Merchlewitz installed our radon mitigation system and now Mr. Abrams' radon level reads 0.7 pCi/L. He now has peace of mind knowing that he is keeping his home and family safe.
