Mitigation is the term used to describe the process of lowering radon levels.
There can be many ways to deal with high radon levels.
- passive mitigation techniques of sealing holes and cracks in floors and foundation walls
- installing sealed covers over sump pits
- installing one-way drain valves in untrapped drains
Other mitigation approaches include…
- installing venting pipes without active vent fans
- adjusting or modifying heating and air conditioning equipment
- installing static venting and ground covers in areas like crawl spaces
Active mitigation techniques include installation of heat recovery ventilation devices and sub-slab or sub-membrane ventilation systems. Typically, combinations of the above-mentioned mitigation techniques are used to do most mitigation. Sub-slab ventilation is the most common main method used to effectively reduce high radon levels.

- Four short term tests over each season averaged.
This warranty DOES NOT apply if damage occurs because of water drainage problems, accident, physical abuses, Acts of God, earth movement, neglect, alteration, modifications, or civil disturbances.
