Radon Gas Mitigation Case Studies: Radon Mitigation in Hawkeye, IA

Wednesday, May 29th, 2019 by Anne Webbles


Tim B. in Hawkeye, IA previously had our waterproofing system installed in his home. He recently learned about the dangers of radon gas, and when he learned that American Waterworks also tests for and installs radon mitigation systems, he chose to have his home tested. Unfortunately, his results came back high. Tim wanted to act quickly, and he moved forward with an installation date. 


Our Foreman, Dakota Merchlewitz, and Co-Foreman, Tyler Wolf, installed our radon mitigation system in less than one day! They inserted a PVC pipe through the sump pump system which creates a suction point for radon gas. The PVC pipe runs up the basement wall, through the wall to the outside of the home, and up to the roof. There is a fan near the exit point on the PVC pipe to ensure that the radon gas is being pushed out and away from the home. Our radon mitigation system can easily be installed alongside our waterproofing system without the need to contact additional contractors. Tim was pleased with the quick installation and is glad he took action to protect his family’s health!
