Personnel at Clean Vapor have been designing and installing radon mitigation systems since 1987. Since that time, our specialist has managed the correction of over 10,500 sites throughout the U.S. including Alaska.
Before any construction work begins, a mitigation plan is developed. This is the most critical component in the entire process because it determines the remedial design and scope of work. This eliminates the ad hoc guess work and provides a defined plan. It also eliminates installing something that is not effective in reducing radon. Once a plan is in place, definite costs can be determined. Initiating a remedial project without a mitigation design plan is a risky idea.
The primary method for reducing radon is active soil depressurization. This is accomplished by installing a radon mitigation system that creates a negative pressure field beneath the slab and prevents radon from entering the building. A radon mitigation system will draw radon from beneath the slab, through PVC piping to the exterior of the building where it is vented above the roofline and quickly diluted with ambient air. The radon mitigation system also removes moisture and other soil borne pollutants that can enter the building and, therefore, improves the overall indoor air quality of the building.
Successfully completing mitigation projects requires disciplined, experienced personnel executing responsibilities at all levels. Mobilizing the right people and the right equipment on site to execute an organized installation is never left to happenstance. Proper planning and support staff working in concert with our field specialists has enabled us to deliver projects on time and within predetermined budgets. Technically correct systems are installed by field personnel who are trained for specific tasks and who are experienced in making good decisions. Each one of our clients have benefited from the investment we have made in their projects prior to arriving on site.
In New Jersey, Radon Mitigation systems are installed through Vapor Remediation Technology (MIB 92815)
