Nick M. in Dennison, MN had learned about the dangers of radon gas and decided that he needed to get his home tested. The test results showed a high level of radon. Our Design Specialist walked him through the radon mitigation installation process and answered his questions. Nick wanted to act quickly and moved forward with an installation date.
Our radon mitigation specialists 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 and exits the home through 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 Nick is glad he took action to protect his and his family’s health.

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.
Kyle W. of Minneapolis, MN had a radon level of 4.1 pCi/L. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, 4 pCi/L is the "action level", which means that it needs to be mitigated as soon as possible. Kyle found American Waterworks on HomeAdvisor, so he contacted our office staff and set up a day to get one of our Exterior Radon Mitigation Systems installed. Our Design Specialist, Michel, went to Kyle's home, inspected the exterior of his house, and designed a detailed plan for where to install the system as well as the cost. Kyle was confident in the quote and the design, so he went ahead with the project.
Our Foremen, Dakota and Geno, installed the system from the inside utility room to the house exterior. The purpose of the mitigation system is to pull radon from underneath the home and expose it into the open air outside of the home. The installation only took a few hours and Kyle was very happy with the work that was completed.
Josh L. in Minneapolis, MN discovered the adverse effects that radon gas has on people's health and he became concerned because his home had not yet been tested. He started looking for a company to test his home, and he came across American Waterworks at a local home show. He was glad to see that along with concrete repair, basement waterproofing and foundation repair, we also offer radon testing and mitigation. He gave us a call and we sent one of our Design Specialists, Shane Nephew, to his home to set up the test. 48 hours later, Shane returned to read the results. The results showed that Josh did in fact have unsafe levels of radon in his home. Shane explained the risks of not having a radon mitigation system installed and he walked Josh through the installation process. Josh wanted to have the system installed as soon as possible, so they scheduled the project.

Alex F. of Minneapolis, MN wanted to get a radon mitigation system installed because his test came back with 6.9 pCi/L. He did his research and found American Waterworks on HomeAdvisor. He got our radon mitigation system installed by our Foreman, Dakota, and his crew member, Geno. Dakota started the installation in the utility room to the garage and through the roof, where the radon was able to escape into the open air. The purpose of our radon mitigation system is to expose radon out of the house. It can be installed in several different locations on the property depending on the basement, crawl space, or concrete slab.
