Radon mitigation is any process used to reduce radon gas concentrations in the breathing zones of occupied buildings, or radon from water supplies. Radon is a significant contributor to environmental radioactivity. Mitigation of radon in the air is accomplished through ventilation, either collected below a concrete floor slab or a membrane on the ground, or by increasing the air changes per hour in the building.
Treatment systems using aeration or activated charcoal are available to remove radon from domestic water Work It (Remix) - Missy Elliott - Under Construction. No level of radiation is considered completely safe but it cannot be totally eliminated so governments around the world have set various action levels to provide guidance on when radon concentrations should be reduced while recognizing that radon cannot be eliminated.
Radon in the air is considered to be a larger health threat than radon in domestic water so the US Environmental Protection Agency recommendation is to not test for radon in water unless a radon in air test is above the action level. However, some US states, such as Maine where radon levels are higher than the national average, recommend all well water should be tested for radon. The US government has not set an action level for Radon - Various - Hell in water.
Air-radon levels fluctuate naturally on a daily and seasonal basis. A short term test 90 days or less might not be an accurate assessment of a home's Amos Moses - Jerry Reed - The Best Of Jerry Reed radon level, but are recommended for initial testing to quickly determine unhealthy conditions.
Transient weather such as wind and changes in barometric pressure can affect short-term concentrations  as well as ventilation such as open windows and the operation of exhaust fans. Testing for radon in the air is accomplished using passive or active devices placed in the building.
Some devices are promptly sent to a laboratory for analysis, others calculate the results on-site. Radon-in-water testing requires a water sample being sent to a laboratory.
Retesting is recommended in several situations such as to double check test results before spending money on the installation of a mitigation system. Test results which exceed accuracy tolerances also require re-testing.
When a mitigation system installation is warranted, a retest after the system is functional is advised to be sure the system is effectively reducing the radon concentration below the action level, and after any mitigation system repairs such as replacing a fan unit.
Retesting is also recommended every ten years. Radon test kits are commercially available  and can be used by homeowners, tenants and in limited cases by landlords, except when a property is for sale. Commercially available test kits includes a passive collector that the user places in the lowest livable floor of the house for 2 to 7 days. The user then sends the collector to a laboratory for analysis.
Long-term kits, taking collections from 91 days to one year, are also available. Open land test kits can test radon emissions from the land before construction begins, but are not recommended by the EPA because they do not accurately predict the final indoor radon level.
Retesting is specifically recommended in several situations. The accuracy of the residential radon test depends upon the lack of ventilation in the house when the sample is being obtained. Thus the occupants will be Radon - Various - Hell not to open windows, etc. However, the occupants, if the present owners, will be motivated Radon - Various - Hell pass the test and insure the Radon - Various - Hellso they might be tempted to open a window to get a lower radon score.
Moreover, there may be children or immature teens or young adults in the house who will open a window for ventilation notwithstanding instructions not to do so, particularly in uncomfortably hot weather. Accordingly, whether the potential purchaser should trust the result of such a test is problematic. Management of radon service provider certification has evolved since being introduced by the EPA in Some states, such as Maine, require landlords to test their rental properties and turn the results in to the state.
In limited cases the landlord or tenant s may do the testing themselves. The rules in each state vary. In many cases there are private contractors that Roll It Over - Derek & The Dominos - Wolfgangs Vault inspect hired by the city. Because high levels of radon have been found in every state of the United States,  testing for radon and installing radon mitigation systems has become a specialized industry since the s.
Many states have implemented programs that affect home buying and awareness in the real estate community, however radon testing and mitigation systems are not generally mandatory unless specified by the local jurisdiction.
According to the EPA's "A Citizen's Guide to Radon",  the method to reduce Radon - Various - Hell "primarily used is a vent pipe system and fan, which pulls radon from beneath the house and vents it to the outside", which is also called sub-slab depressurization, soil suction, or active soil depressurization ASD. Generally indoor radon can be mitigated by sub-slab depressurization and exhausting such radon-laden air to the outdoors, away from windows and other building openings.
Soil suction, for example, prevents radon from entering your home by drawing the radon from below the home and venting Radon - Various - Hell through a pipe, or pipes, to the air above the home where it is quickly diluted" and "EPA does not recommend the use of sealing alone to reduce radon because, by itself, sealing has not been shown to lower radon levels significantly or consistently" according to the EPA's "Consumer's Guide to Radon Reduction: How to fix your home".
For crawlspaces, the EPA states,  "An effective method to reduce radon levels in crawlspace homes involves covering the earth floor with a high-density plastic sheet. A vent pipe and fan are used to draw the radon from under Radon - Various - Hell sheet and vent it to the outdoors. This form of soil suction is called submembrane suction, and when properly applied is the most effective way to reduce radon levels in crawlspace homes. In South Florida, most radon mitigation is performed by use of fixed rate mechanical ventilation.
Radon mitigation training in Florida does not include problems associated with mechanical ventilation systems, such as high indoor humidity, mold, moldy odors, property damage or health consequences of human occupation in high humidity of moldy environments [ citation needed ]. As a result, most Florida radon mitigators are unaware of and do not incorporate existing building science moisture management technology into mechanical ventilation radon installations.
Home inspectors may not necessarily be aware of the mold risks associated with radon mitigation by mechanical ventilation. Radon removal from water supplies may be at a treatment plant, point of entry, or point of use. Public water supplies in the United States were required to treat for radionuclides beginning in but private wells are not regulated by the federal government as of [update].
The radon can be captured by granular activated charcoal GAR or released into the air through aeration of the water. Radon will naturally dissipate from water over Fury Of The Storm - Dragonforce - Sonic Firestorm period of days, but the quantity of storage needed to treat the water in this manner makes home systems of this type impracticably large.
Activated carbon systems capture radon from the water. The amount of radiation accumulates over time and the filter material may reach the level of requiring disposal as a radioactive waste. However, in the United States there are no regulations concerning radiation levels and disposal of radon treatment waste as of [update]. Aeration systems move the radon from the water to the air. Radon gas discharged into the air is the release of a pollutant, and may become regulated in the United States.
