Radon Gas Mitigation Case Studies: Radon Mitigation System Installed in Mason City, IA

Wednesday, May 1st, 2019 by Anne Webbles


Dave K. in Mason City, IA came across our booth at the North Iowa Home Improvement and Landscaping Show and was interested in learning more about radon and our radon mitigation system. He set an appointment with our Design Specialist, Reed Hudson, who inspected Dave’s home and proposed a custom designed solution to fit his needs. 


Our radon mitigation specialist, Dakota Merchlewitz, drilled a hole through the concrete basement to create a suction point for the gas. Then, a PVC pipe is inserted which goes up through the house, exits the home, and is guided to the roof. A fan is installed at the top of the PVC pipe to ensure that the radon gas is being pushed away from the home. The post mitigation test results showed that his home is now a much safer environment. The installation took only one day to complete, and Dave is glad he took action to protect his and his family’s health.
