Radon Mitigation Little Chute WI
Radon Mitigation in Little Chute WI is being done at much higher rate than in the past, due to increased awareness of the dangers of radon gas. Homes in Little Chute and most of Outagamie County are at an elevated risk of dangerous radon levels in residential homes and commercial properties. In a study done by the Wisconsin DHS from 1995-2016 they found that 54.2% of homes evaluated in Little Chute had radon levels at or above 4.0pCi/L. What is radon? Radon is a noble gas that rises up from the soil and causes the second most deaths from lung cancer in the United States. Radon comes from the decay of uranium in the soil, and it comes into homes and commercial buildings through cracks in the concrete, sump crocks, open crawl spaces or even the pores of the concrete. Once inside of a structure, radon gas tends to build up and can reach unsafe levels as it has nowhere to go. With the installation of a proper radon mitigation system, radon gas becomes a solvable issue. Radon mitigation works by drawing airflow from underneath the slab of the home to create a negative pressure. Once that negative pressure is created, the radon gas that is rising up from the soil gets pulled into the mitigation system and gets vented above the roofline to dissipate in the air. Radon mitigation systems in Little Chute WI typically cost between $850-$1500 depending on the property.

Radon Testing Little Chute WI
Radon testing in Little Chute is the ultra important first step to find out whether or not your home has this deadly gas. For a small cost, you can increase your awareness of your homes air quality, and learn if you need to take action or not. Even if you aren’t worried about the health effects of radon, radon testing is still a good idea to perform.
If you plan on selling your home in the future, the home inspector will do a radon test, and if that test comes back elevated, the buyers or the bank will make you install a radon mitigation system as a part of the home sale. So whether you are testing for your own health, or to be prepared for your home sale, radon testing is a great idea. The most popular style of test that we offer at Lifetime Radon is the DIY Charcoal Test kits. For just $25 we can send you over a kit that will be able to determine an average radon level in your home during a 3 to 7 day period. We recommend this testing option to people who have never tested before, and are not in the middle of selling their homes. We include the lab fees and the shipping all in that flat rate of $25 as well. We also offer other testing options to fit any need such as long term canisters, personal radon detectors that connect to your phone, and radon in water tests. To find out what type of test will be best for you, or to set up a testing time give us a call!
Commercial Radon Mitigation
Schools, office buildings, factories, hospitals, long term care facilities, and restaurants, are all at risk the same way residential homes are for elevated radon gas levels. Radon gas is harmful when it's elevated in a place where you spend a lot of time, so your workplace could feasibly be just as crucial to mitigate as your home, as you probably spend at-least 8 hours a day there. Commercial properties can be mitigated similarly to how residential properties are.

Radon Mitigation Companies Near Little Chute WI
We won’t tell you that you absolutely have to choose Lifetime Radon for all your radon testing and mitigation needs, however we feel it’s important to educate homeowners about radon mitigation companies and how the process works. In Wisconsin, being certified for radon mitigation isn't a requirement, and the only permit required is for electrical work. So there are a lot of companies in the area that take advantage of this. Even though it’s not required, Lifetime Radon is fully certified by the National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP) and the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (AARST). We feel it’s important to be certified because it ensures that the work we do follows building code, as well as the EPA’s regulations for radon mitigation and radon testing. An improperly installed radon system will get flagged during a home sale and will end up costing you a lot more than a system done right. Always check with the companies you are calling to get quotes from that they hold some sort of certification and have at least some experience in the field. Inexperienced and non certified radon contractors can cause damage to your home’s drain tile, give you unsatisfactory retesting results, and get you in trouble from the city for not pulling electrical permits.
