Pittston Radon Mitigation Needs

HUD Pittston Radon MitigationIn case you missed last month’s update from S.W.A.T. Environmental, there are new updates to HUD regulation that requires radon testing and mitigation appropriately. The full scale of the regulations require that all units in multi-family homes financed through HUD must have a radon test conducted. If tests show that any specific unit has high levels of radon gas, then a Pittston radon mitigation system must be installed to reduce the levels of radon gas.

Every year that goes by, more than 20,000 more lives are taken away in the form of lung cancer. How you ask? Radon gas. Radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer, and is responsible of so many deaths each year. If we are to protect the lives of those who we are housing in our multi-family homes, and our own lives, we will need to ensure testing and installation of Pittston radon mitigation systems. This will ensure that our homes do not have this dangerous gas trapped within them.

Handling Pittston Radon Mitigation

If you are trying to ensure that your multi-family home is up to the latest standards, then you are going to have to test your home. The first step in Pittston radon mitigation is a radon test. A radon test will give a good perspective on whether or not your home is in danger of high levels of radon gas, and allow you to appropriately take the correct action.

The two types of tests that you should be aware of are a short term and a long term test. A short term test may take as short as a few days. A long term test may take several months to complete, but it will boast a little more accurate results. It is recommended that your doors and windows are shut for the majority of the process in order to ensure the most accurate results.

Once you have your test results, you will be able to make an informed decision as to whether or not Pittston radon mitigation is necessary. It is very simple. If your gas levels are above a certain point, then a mitigation system is necessary. If your gas levels are not above a certain point, then your home is safe and not in need of a new mitigation system.
