Radon Mitigation

Our team of certified and licensed radon technicians can install a radon mitigation system to protect you and your family.

Radon Testing Services

Radon Testing

Our team is trained and equipped with the latest radon testing equipment to test for the presence of radon. We offer short-term and long-term radon testing of your home.

What is Radon?

Radon forms naturally as a result of the decay of radioactive elements like uranium. This radioactive, odorless gas is present in soil and rocks. It can get indoors via air and water.

 Continuous exposure to radon puts you and your family at risk of inhaling radon progeny, a product of radon breakdown. It could attach to small particles and dust, making it easy to inhale. The radiation from the exposure could cause damage to your DNA.

What is a Radon-Resistant Home?

A radon-resistant home ensures that you and your family won’t have to worry about radon exposure. Atlantic Real Estate Services offers a system that includes all essential elements of mitigating radon. You can be confident that every aspect of your home will be checked and protected from the harmful effects of radon.

 

  • Sealing and Caulking — openings in the foundation floor must be sealed to prevent gas entry from the soil.
  • Gas-Permeable Layer — if your home has slab-on-grade foundation or casement, a gas-permeable layer keeps the gas underneath the property and allows it to move freely. Properties with crawlspace foundations don’t need this layer.
  • Junction Box — often placed in the attic, this electric box makes it easier to install vent fans.
  • Plastic Sheeting — this is place over the gas-permeable layer to ensure that soil gas won’t enter your home. You can also put plastic sheeting on your crawlspace.
  • Vent Pipe — a vent pipe safely gets radon gas out of your home. It runs from the gas-permeable layer through the roof.

Why Should You Check for Radon?

There is no other way to find out if your home has high levels of radon but to test it. Radon testing and remediation are essential, especially if the property has never been checked. Furthermore, you should test for radon if you’re selling or buying a new property.

  • Any home can have an undetected radon problem — Old and new residential properties are at risk of radon exposure.
  • Your Health is at Stake — Exposure to radon and inhaling air with radon increases your risk of developing lung cancer. It’s estimated that about 21,000 lung cancer cases are related to radon exposure.
  • Experts recommend it — The United States Environmental Protection Agency recommends assessing residential properties for the presence of this harmful gas in indoor air. If you’re buying a new property, it’s best to ask the seller of their test results. If you’re selling, make sure to provide all necessary information pertaining to testing and your radon mitigation system to your buyers.

How to Check for Radon?

Short-term or long-term testing could be done to your home, depending on your needs. We could use passive and active devices in testing the levels of radon in your home.

Radon and Environmental Testing

A short-term test often runs between 2 and 90 days, depending on the type of testing device that your radon inspector will use. A long-term test would last for more than 90 days.

Between the two types of tests, the long-term test will be the one to show the property’s average annual radon level. It could also help confirm any results from short-term tests. 

What to Do if Radon Levels in Your Home is High?

Should the results show high levels of radon in the property, take immediate action to fix the problem. If you’ve owned the house a while, it means you’ve been exposed to harmful gas for a long time. Your risk of lung cancer increases for every moment that you let pass.

Radon Mitigation

Radon mitigation is the process of reducing levels of the harmful gas in your property. Protect your family’s health by choosing certified radon technicians like Atlantic Real Estate Services to do the work for you. We provide a performance warranty to ensure that you’re getting the best radon mitigation system available.

Remember, when it comes to your family’s health, you shouldn’t take any risks.

Keep your home safe and your family healthy through a reliable radon mitigation system. Here at Atlantic Real Estate Services, we’ve made mitigating radon our business. We’re a team of certified radon inspectors and have years of experience in home inspection.

    5 star review  Atlantic Radon technician, Daniel, installed a full radon abatement system in our home, replacing a very old system. He evaluated our home and customized the installation to fit our significant structural limitations. Daniel was timely, neat and careful in performing all of the work. We appreciate his professionalism and highly recommend Atlantic Radon.

    5 star review  I contacted Atlantic Radon and they were able to see me within a few days. The total bill matched the estimate, which was within range of typical Radon abatement services. Installation took place within 2 weeks of my estimate and was completed in less than 8 hours. Everything was explained and the Radon abatement system was installed to minimize visibility from the road. Radon levels dropped to almost nothing in my home. Highly recommend Atlantic Radon for prompt, professional and effective Radon abatement.

    5 star review  I can't say enough about how great it was to work with Atlantic Radon. They were able to come out the same day I contacted them for an estimate, which was in line with the others I received. However, it was their service which sold me on them. They were friendly, prompt, and very understanding of our chaotic household, since we're in the middle of a move. They even offered to speak to our buyers if they had any questions after the fact. Can't recommend them enough for radon mitigation.

    5 star review  Atlantic's Tech, Daniel, was extremely thorough and professional. He wore shoe covers and double-masked when he came in, which I appreciated. Also, the original goal was to replace an old radon fan in my basement that was attached to a pipe coming out of my sump pump. He advised me that it made more sense to install the new fan in the attic in order to create negative pressure which was better in case of any issues in the piping. That made a lot of sense to me. He also left a nice pressure indicator on the pipe down in my basement so that I could see that the fan was working. Finally, he explained everything to me before he left. Terrific service. Incidentally, my experience setting an appointment was terrific too. The owner of the business patiently explained what to expect, and was very friendly/non-pushy. I would hire this company again in a heartbeat.

    5 star review  Personnel from Atlantic Radon installed a Radon Mitigation Unit after initial testing by another company revealed our home was well above the EPA's standards for Radon emissions. To that end, Atlantic Radon’s owner/manager and co-workers are very professional as they explained all work requirements, time-frame for completion, placement of the system, performance of the system, guarantees, clean-up and subsequent radon testing process. Atlantic Radon personnel are by far customer-centric and “aim to please”! Very highly recommended!!

    5 star review  I needed to have a radon mitigation system installed in my home. Tommy was very patient and answered all of my questions. Very professional and knowledgeable! They did a great job with the installation. I would highly recommend Atlantic Radon!

    5 star review  Tommy and his team came highly recommended, and they did not disappoint. My new house had a radon level above the 4.0 max requirement, so Tommy came out to install the passive pipe fan. Unfortunately, the pipe was disconnected somewhere within the walls between the basement and attic, but long story short, Tommy worked his magic. End result, 0.2 radon level. In addition to the professionalism and amazing work quality, Tommy is very good in terms of communication, and will guide you through each step of the process. I would highly recommend Atlantic Radon and Tommy's team.

    5 star review  Excellent customer service with competitive prices. I would highly recommend them. We used them to replace a 26 year old fan on its last legs. They replaced it twice because the first fan was a little loud for our taste.

    5 star review  Tommy and team at Atlantic Radon were excellent. My interior row townhome was a challenge, and they went above and beyond to walk me through multiple options before we decided on a creative solution. I couldn’t be happier with the result and highly recommend them for your radon needs.

    5 star review  Atlantic Radon and their team’s work and integrity are beyond reproach. We selected Atlantic Radon for the peace of mind it would provide to work with a company that cares about their clients, are exceptional at what they do, and are consistent in their level of service. We had some questions along the way and Tommy and his team responded without delay and ensured we were able to share everything that was on our mind. This is really the only call you need to make if looking for a Radon Mitigation service.

    5 star review  Tommy was great to work with and I was really happy with the quality of his work for our fan install. The results were great too! We were averaging radon readings 4+ before the fan install and after we are averaging around 0.5. Highly recommend him and his business.

    5 star review  Besides the radon pump and plumbing, Tommy did a great job installing a plastic membrane over our dirt crawlspace. The system lowered typical radon counts from 11 to 1, below 4 is considered healthy. The plastic membrane knocked down the humidity in the basement which helps an area prone to mold. He was on time, respectful and priced competitively.

    5 star review  I had two houses that failed the radon test (above 4.0). Atlantic Radon responded quickly to both residences, did their own computer measurement, and installed their radon mitigation, all at a very reasonable price. The results were excellent, with one house getting a 0.7 average and the other a 0.9. I recommend them highly.

    5 star review  We had a difficult, double foundation challenge and readings above 6. Paul designed a creative and cost-effective solution and got our readings to below 1. The team was professional, creative, open to suggestions and truly cared about their work and results. If you have a radon issue, look no further than Atlantic Radon.

    5 star review  Tommy and the team at Atlantic did a great job installing my radon mitigation system. I didn’t know anything about radon going into this and was a little unsettled to learn my levels were high. Tommy responded to my request within minutes and walked me through everything on the phone. When he came out to do the estimate, he was very professional and knowledgeable which is why I chose them to do the work. On the day of install, they showed up right on time, did the work, and the results came back as low as radon levels can get. I highly recommend Tommy and the team at Atlantic for your radon mitigation needs.

    5 star review  Paul and Tommy were great to work with. We were able to schedule a radon mitigation of our home quickly. They arrived on time, cleaned up after themselves and worked diligently to get the job completed timely and accurately. After a few days, Paul returned to read our new test results and we had gone from 11.1 down to .4. We are very happy! We know others who had to have a 2nd pipe installed or additional work completed by other companies and we were very thankful we did not have any issues. As the owner of RHS Home Inspections, it is great to have found a company who is professional, attentive and very reasonably priced to now share with my clients who are in need of radon mitigation. I highly recommend Atlantic Radon for all of your mitigation needs. Paul and Tommy are fantastic! Definitely call them, don't shop around, you get what you pay for and you will pay for remarkable service here!
