Wilmington Radon Mitigation Problems

HUD Wilmington Radon MitigationIf you missed the recent update last month from S.W.A.T. Environmental, HUD is requiring certain regulations in regard to radon gas in homes in the Wilmington area. All multi-family home in the Wilmington area, and the rest of the United States, are required to have a radon test in every unit if they are financed through HUD. If test results show high levels of results, then further action is required in order to make sure that every unit is safe through Wilmington radon mitigation.

Now that you know the requirements that you are about to face, it is important to know the process you are about to go through with your Wilmington home. The first step you will have to face throughout all of this is having a radon test committed on your home. There are two types of tests you can choose to use. The first type of test is a short term test and it will provide fast results, but less accurate than a long term test. The long term test may take as long as several months, but will provide more accurate results. During the testing period it is important to keep your doors and windows closed as much as possible in order to ensure that you will receive the most accurate results.

If your tests show high levels of radon gas, then you will know that Wilmington radon mitigation will be necessary to your home. The reason that testing is so important is that testing will provide you with accurate results. There is no way of determining whether or not your home has high levels of gas without this. This gas cannot be seen or smelled, but testing will provide you with the peace of mind knowing whether or not you need Wilmington radon mitigation.

The Wilmington Radon Mitigation Process

The Wilmington radon mitigation process should begin the moment that you receive high test results. You will need a certified radon specialist to handle the mitigation process. S.W.A.T. Environmental has the years of experience, and certifications needed to properly remove radon gas from your Wilmington home, and keep it compliant with all HUD regulations. Be sure that you contact a local representative at S.W.A.T. Environmental for a free quote on all that can be done to your home to reduce the radon gas levels by as much as 99%.

The reason Wilmington radon mitigation has become such a regulation, and concern for many in Wilmington is through having so many national deaths. This gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer, making it a serious threat and concern for all. We need to be proactive with this gas in order to properly handle it, and ensure that our Wilmington homes are safe and compliant with HUD. Contact a representative with S.W.A.T. Environmental if your multi-family home shows high levels of radon gas in any of its units.

The Growing Need for Radon Mitigation

Radon was first discovered as a radioactive gas in 1900 by Friedrich Dorn. Over a century later, it has become common knowledge that radioactive material is not good for your health, but many are still unaware of the numerous deaths caused by radon gas. The EPA has proven that it is a fact that radon gas causes lung cancer. Over twenty thousand deaths are recorded each year due to radon gas. This is an astounding number, and really hits home to us, as we know just how easy these deaths could have been avoided. With a properly installed radon mitigation system for your Wilmington home, your radon levels may be reduced by up to ninety nine percent.

Radon typically forms from the breakdown of other radioactive elements. You may be thinking to yourself that you should not have to worry, and that you live far away from any known radioactive materials. This may not be the case. Often these radioactive elements are beneath your Wilmington home, in the soil. As these harmful elements break down, they form radon gas, which can seep through your foundation, and into your Wilmington home. Calling an expert radon mitigation company should reduce the levels of radon, and any worry you may have.
