    - A Radon Mitigation System draws radon gas and exhausts outside of the home. Radon system components include an inline fan, PVC piping and a "suction point" (some structures require more than one suction point). A suction point is a small void created beneath a slab floor or crawlspace membrane..

The first lesson to learn about radon reduction is this: No two houses are alike. Even houses that look the same have small differences in existing conditions that can affect radon entry and the design and effectiveness of reduction techniques.

Underlying soils also vary greatly, even among houses.

Besides the specific techniques used for basements or crawl spaces, there are several general radon reduction methods that work for any foundation: natural ventilation, sealing, house/room pressurization, and heat recovery ventilation.

Natural ventilation occurs in different amounts in all houses. The methods, systems, designs, and materials described here have been shown to have a high probability of success in mitigating radon in attached and detached residential buildings, three stories or less in height (see EPA, “Radon Reduction Techniques for Existing Detached Houses.

Take radon-reduction training courses. Without the right equipment and techniques, you could actually increase the levels of radon in your home.
