Reducing radon in homes.

Home radon levels can be reduced by the following methods:

  • Improving the ventilation
  • Avoid the radon from the basement into living rooms
  • Increasing under-floor ventilation
  • Installing an effective radon sump system in the lowest part of the basement
  • Sealing floors and walls
  • Installing a positive pressurization or positive supply ventilation system.

Radon safety should be considered in the construction of new housing, especially in high radon areas. Including protective measures in Europe and the United States, new buildings have become routine, and in some countries has become a mandatory procedure. Passive mitigation systems have been shown to have the ability to indoor radon levels reduced by as much as 50%. Where radon ventilation fans, can further reduce radon levels.
