Services We Offer

Radon Mitigation

If you have your home tested and our technicians find that there are high concentrations of radon gas present, there are a variety of solutions that we can help you implement to fix the problem.

Radon Testing

While you may not know it, radon is a dangerous, cancer-causing, radioactive gas that could be lurking in your home. The scary thing about radon is that you can’t see, taste, or smell it, even when it’s present at higher concentrations.

We provide a radon mitigation service that values your need for a system that protects your family’s health. Let us help you take care of your family by installing clean, good-looking radon mitigation systems.

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.

Atlantic Radon was great. Dan Brodsky and Zack spent 2 days installing a radon mitigation system, sump pump and plastic membrane in my crawlspace. Nice clean job, respectful guys, a pleasure to have at my house. Radon is now below 0.5, which is well below the EPA 4.0 cutoff. Thanks, and keep up the good work.

Tommy and Austin were very professional, making sure that we understood what the radon remediation entailed, and working to make sure that the system did not look awkward or junky. They were prompt, neat, and affordable, and both gentlemen were very personable. Would highly recommend them if you need radon remediation.

Atlantic Radon installed an active radon mitigation system and also a backup battery sump pump. Service was prompt, and very professional. The results were fantastic. Not only is the radon level down to just about 1, the outside work looks unobtrusive and clean. We'd highly recommend them.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

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.

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.

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.
