Radon Mitigation & Removal Case Studies: Providing Safer Air Quality for Home in Cedar Falls, IA

Monday, October 2nd, 2017 by Melissa Kremer

Challenge

Seana recently had radon tests completed at her home and when she received her results, she was in shock. She had levels reaching as high as 8.1 pCi/L. Standard EPA recommends reducing radon levels that are 4.0 pCi/L or higher to increase the air quality of the home. After talking with many different companies, her panic grew more and more, for no company could give her a solution to fixing her radon issue. She was about to give up, but gave it one more chance and reached out to MidAmerica Basement Systems.

Solution

Design specialist Bryan arrived at her home determined to give her the most affective and proper solution for mitigating the radon in her home. As Seana explained that the gas was coming from her untreated crawlspace, she didn’t hold her breath. Bryan had the most effective solution due to MidAmerica Basement Systems patented CleanSpace product. Bryan explained the importance of the sealing off the ground from the crawlspace. This would eliminate the entrance points of the radon, making it controllable to pull the gas from out of the ground, and back out into the open. The CleanSpace liner, about as thick as a pool liner, gives a permanent, tear- and puncture-resistant, seal so the radon mitigation system can properly work. Seana couldn’t be more happy or relieved due to the affective solution that was offered by MidAmerica Basement Systems. She can now live in a home that is safer and heathier to breathe.
