Framingham Radon Mitigation Needs
If you live in the Framingham area, and you own a multi-family home, then hopefully last month you read our article on the dangers of radon gas and the new HUD regulations that are being put into place. These new HUD regulations are requiring that every multi-family home that is financed through HUD must have a radon test conducted on every single unit. Any unit returning high levels of radon gas will need to have a Framingham radon mitigation system installed to provide you with gas reduction.
It may sound like a serious change in policy, and that is because it is. More than 20,000 people die each year from radon gas, and the numbers are hardly declining. One out of every fifteen homes are affected by this gas, and are in need of radon mitigation. Framingham residents should be weary, and test their homes in order to determine whether or not Framingham radon mitigation will be necessary.
Framingham Radon Mitigation Process
The first thing you will need to do to your Framingham home in this process is to have a test conducted. The two main types of tests you should be aware of are a short term and long term test. The short term test will only take about a week to complete, but the long term test may take as much as three months. Both tests are deemed accurate, and so the choice is up to you. No matter which test you choose for your Framingham home, you will want to make sure that you have all of your doors and windows closed for as much of this process as possible. This will render the most accurate testing results for your home.
If your test results showed high levels of radon gas, you will want to contact a professional in regard to radon mitigation. Our process at S.W.A.T. Environmental is simple. We start off pinpointing the location of the radon gas. This allows us to place the air purification system as close to the source as possible. Once the Framingham radon mitigation system is installed, it will funnel out the polluted gas away from your home. This process can reduce the gas levels of your home by as much as 99%.
