A field study was conducted over an intermittent period of years to determine whether air cleaning, using a portable high efficiency particulate air filter air cleaner with an activated carbon filter, was a viable method of reducing indoor radon levels. We are a family owned and operated radon company based in Gaithersburg, Maryland. We are AARST-NRPP certified and take pride in serving our customers with fast, easy and affordable radon testing. Our mission is to raise awareness of Radon and to give our customers the necessary tools to reduce their indoor radon to safe levels.

Radon is also carcinogenic for this reason and can be linked to the incidence of lung cancer in non smoking individuals who often spend time indoors. Assessment and Mitigation of Indoor Radon Problem is a case book for professionals who are interested in modeling the distribution of Radon . Radon is a highly radioactive gas and a waste product of nuclear reactors.

Section 2 Indoor Radon Reduction Approaches Overview of Radon Reduction Methods When radon is known to have entered a house and to have accumulated in unacceptable concentrations, a homeowner may take effective action to reduce concentration levels. Indoor radon exposure to occu- pants of a house may be reduced by 1) preventing or. in radon resistant new construction has the potential to dramatically reduce the diffusion of radon and other harmful vapors into building spaces and significantly improve indoor air quality. Recent tests of the radon diffusion coefficient of EVOH are compared to previously published results, which show EVOH has radon barrier properties several.

The material in the handbook reflects the epidemiological evidence that indoor radon exposure is responsible for a substantial number of lung cancers in the. Written for Native Americans, this page booklet discusses radon's place in the world, the basics on testing, and how homes can be fixed to reduce radon levels.

Native Americans should contact their Tribal health department or state radon program office for more information. See also EPA's Indoor Air Quality Tribal website.

The primary strategies to reduce indoor radon from well water at the point of entry into the home are: aeration: in a sealed tank, air is bubbled through the water or the water is sprayed into the air or is cascaded over filtration with granular activated carbon is generally less expensive but.

Radon then enters the indoor air from showers, clothes washing, dishwashing, and other uses of water. Figure shows typical entry points of radon.

Health risks of radon stem from its breakdown into “radon daughters,” which emit high-energy alpha particles. Ventilation is key for reducing radon levels. Whenever possible, have several windows open on the lowest level of your home or office, which is closest to the soil and source of the radon.

Even a small crack allows fresh air to flow in, lowering the concentration of radon in the : 40K. Opening windows, doors, and vents on the lower floors can increase your home's ventilation. This increase in ventilation mixes outdoor air with the indoor air that contains radon, and can reduce radon levels.

However, once windows, doors and vents are closed, radon concentrations most often resume their previous values within the next 12 hours.

A radon mitigation service may also use passive systems in your basement to mitigate the radon. These systems have been known to reduce indoor radon levels by 50%. After radon mitigation has been achieved, it’s absolutely essential to have your home retested for radon later on.

EPA plans to do additional research on whether air cleaners are, or could become, a reliable means of reducing the health risk from radon. EPA's publications on, Air Cleaners and Air Filters in the Home, provides further information on air-cleaning devices to reduce indoor air pollutants.

To reduce the effective dose equivalent due to radon and its progeny, it is necessary to remove radon in indoor air. For airborne radon progeny, Jonassen () had already studied the effects of filtration and exposure to electric fields.
