Radon Mitigation in Odenton MD

This Odenton MD customer reached out to Basement Systems USA for Radon Testing and possible Mitigation depending on the results. We sent our certified inspector Wil Wilson, out to the home to drop off a CRM test. This test would sit in the basement for a minimum of 48hours, reading levels every hour. After 48hours, Wil went back to this Odenton MD home, printed and went over the results with the homeowner. The results showed that within 48hours, the average level of radon was 4.4pCi/L. EPA recommends mitigation when levels are 4pCi/L or higher.

Now that testing was done, it was time to move on to mitigating the Radon. The system we installed here is called a Sump Pit Depressurization system, which will utilize current sump pit as a suction point. Radon piping is then installed throughout the basement, making its way to the exterior of the home where the radon fan is installed. When the fan is turned on, this will create a suction and radon gasses will be safely pulled from below the home to the outdoors.

Once the Mitigation was installed and running, we left behind a Radon Charcoal test. After 48hours that test got sent off to Alpha Energy Lab and within a few days, Basement Systems USA received the results. The results of this test showed that our Mitigation install took the radon levels from 4.4pCi/L down to 0.7pCi/L!

The EPA recommends mitigation when Radon levels are reading 4pCi/L or higher. This customer did an at home Charcoal test and levels came back at 20pCi/L and reached out to us for immediate help mitigating. 

We came out and installed a Radon Depressurization system that tied in to the customers current Sump Pump we the installed a Domed Sump Pit cover and Exterior Aesthetic Package.

Radon Defense in Finksburg, MD

This customer had radon levels of 27pCi/L, Radon Mitigation is recommended from the EPA when levels of Radon hit 4pCi/L or higher.

Coming back with results, over 6 times the safe level, Basement Systems USA stepped in to help mitigate.

Customer currently had a radon system, but this system not only needed to be activated via installing a new radon fan, but with levels so high, it required an additional extraction point. The additional extraction point was installed through the current customers sump pit, this is called a Sump Pit depressurization System which is shown in this Before and After.

After activating the current radon system with a new fan and installing an additional extraction point, Basement Systems USA was able to get the level of radon down from 27pCi/L to 3pCi/L!

Radon Mitigation in Linthicum Heights, MD

This homeowner contacted us to have a radon mitigation system installed. Here we performed a Pressure Field Extension test, sealed all the cracks in the floor and installed a Sub-slab Depressurization System with a premium radon fan. A sub-slab system consists of PVC piping installed through the slab floor and a fan connected with the piping. When the system is on, the fan applies a vacuum beneath the slab and the harmful radon vapors in the soil beneath the home are directed outside the home.

Parkville MD Radon Mitigation

Radon Levels were reading at 4.5 pCi/L for this new home owner and she reached out to us to help mitigate. We came out and installed a Radon Depressurization System that was installed directly in to the customer sump pump, this is called a Sump Pit Depressurization System. We also installed a Premium Domed Sump Cover which is airtight sealed, Moisture Guard which reduces fan corrosion caused by the condensation drip inside the system. Installing a Moisture Guard will double the life of your system. To finish off this install, is what you will see in this before and after, we installed an Exterior Aesthetics cover, this protects the fan from any animals, weather or vandalism.
