A concerned homeowner in the Forest Heights neighborhood in Athens, GA called us for radon testing and mitigation. She works from home and has a home gym in her basement. She had done some short term testing on her own and felt the results we inconsistent and confusing. She requested that we run a longer test than normal so she would have confidence in the overall average. We decided to run the test for 9 days.

The first test we conducted had an overall average of 2.9 pCi/L. This is below the EPA average but she wanted to get the levels below 2.0 pCi/L because she spends so much time in her home. The report showed that there were daily spikes in the levels up to 5.8 pCi/L. We were very confident we could help her meet her radon reduction goals.

After installing a radon mitigation system, we retested the home. She was thrilled with the results. The average was 0.7 pCi/L with a maximum reading of 1.32 pCi/L. The mitigation was a success and we were able to deliver the results she needed to feel comfortable spending so much time at home.

Job Stories From Clarke County, GA
Radon Mitigation System Inspection in Athens, GA

A homeowner in the Westgate Park subdivision of Athens called us after doing a radon test in his home that came back over 4 pCi/L. They purchased the home 3 years ago and it already had a radon mitigation system installed and wanted to know if the system was working properly. The basement was almost completely finished and one of the family members slept in the basement.

We inspected the system and the fan was functional but the operating pressure was 2.5" WC. The manufacturer's maximum recommended operating pressure is 2.3" WC and their fan curve shows that the typical airflow at 2.4" WC is 0 CFM. The fan was on, but it was not removing any soil gas. The data tag left by the installer showed that the system was installed this way. The system had never worked properly, was causing excessive wear on the fan motor, and was using more energy than was necessary.

Our customer requested a radon test using a continuous radon monitor. We ran a 7-day test and the average was 7.9 pCi/L. 

Since we did not install the system we recommended diagnostics and pressure field extension testing before we designed a solution. This can include digging a larger pit, adding an extraction point, and/or replacing the fan. 

If you have a radon system installed in your home, make sure you conduct a retest every two years. If you suspect that the system is not working properly, call us to inspect your radon mitigation system.

Saving Another Real Estate Sale in Athens, GA

Josh A called us to see if we could install a radon mitigation system in a home he was trying to sell and get a clear test result in 10 days. Of course! That's what we do!

Athens, GA has a hot real estate market and Josh's home went under contract quickly. The prospective buyer had a radon test with their home inspection that resulted in an average radon level of 8.2 pCi/L. They almost walked but their REALTOR assured them that this was not difficult to correct. They requested a radon mitigation system and a radon test that demonstrated average levels below the EPA action level before their closing, two weeks later. 

This kind of situation is very stressful for both buyers and sellers and we knew we could help get both parties to the closing table. The seller needed a responsive mitigation contractor that would deal with the issue quickly and the buyer needed a system that was guaranteed to work.

The next day we went to his home, did a thorough inspection, and designed a mitigation system. This was a slab home with a completely finished interior including new flooring throughout. Our options were limited. There were no closets or hidden spaces on the back of the home. We suggested tapping into the sub-slab in the master bedroom closet, running the piping into the garage, and up through the garage ceiling. The piping would run to the exterior through the roof over the garage. The piping in the garage would be a great location for the system manometer that shows the occupants the system is on and working.

The installation proceeded as planned. Afterward, a continuous radon monitor was set with a 24 hour delay to make sure the home returned to closed-house conditions. (Many mitigators recommend waiting 5-7 days but this is rarely necessary.) Despite having severe weather during the entire post-mitigation test, we were able to reduce the average radon level to 0.6 pCi/L.

Don't let high radon levels derail your real estate transaction!

ERV Installation in Athens, GA

A concerned homeowner contacted Georgia Radon Defense because he had some indoor air quality concerns at his home in Athens, GA. After installing an indoor air quality monitor in his home, he became concerned about high levels of CO2 when they were cooking. The kitchen exhaust fan was of little use because it did not vent to the exterior. They also had radon levels that were not above the EPA action level but high enough to be a concern.

The home was an older home with multiple foundation types. Installing a radon mitigation system was possible but would have been difficult. Given that there were multiple indoor air quality concerns, we offered fresh air ventilation using an Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) as a comprehensive solution.

After installing the ERV the family immediately noticed an improvement in the indoor air quality. After continuously monitoring the air for a week, they were pleased to see a reduction in the CO2 levels in the home as well as the radon levels.

If you have Indoor Air Quality concerns, no matter what they are, give Georgia Radon Defense a call. We can design a solution that works for you and guarantee results.

Radon Mitigation in Athens, GA

Ryan. H of Athens, GA was referred to Georgia Radon Defense by his home inspection service after a high radon reading on a test done during his home inspection. Wanting to make sure his home was safe for him and his family, Ryan reached out to Georgia Radon Defense to evaluate his home for radon mitigation. 

Craig Shane surveyed Ryan's basement for the best extraction point in the slab and recommend the right-sized fan appropriate for removing the excess radon from the home. Craig decided that having Trent Jones and Zach Tully install an Eagle fan would accomplish the job of getting Ryan's radon levels below the EPA's recommended 4pCi/l. 

With Ryan's radon levels now below the EPA's recommended threshold, he can rest easy knowing his home is safe for him and his family. If you think your home has high radon levels call your local radon mitigation experts at Georgia Radon Defense.

1. Why They Needed a Radon Mitigation System: A home inspection for a property in Athens, GA (30605) being sold by Gregg revealed elevated radon levels (4.2 pCi/L). Radon gas, a naturally occurring health hazard, can seep into homes through cracks in the foundation, crawlspaces, or sump pump pits.

2. Why Gregg Nagle Chose Georgia Radon Defense:

  • Fast Turnaround: Georgia Radon Defense emphasizes its ability to work quickly and efficiently, ensuring a smooth closing process for real estate transactions.
  • Experience with Partially Finished Basements: The company highlights its expertise in handling mitigation systems for various basement configurations, which may have been relevant for Gregg's home.

3. What Caused the Problem: Radon gas naturally occurs in the soil and can enter a home through foundation cracks, crawlspaces, or sump pump pits. The partially finished state of the basement might have had areas where proper sealing was not complete, allowing radon to accumulate.

4. How We Fixed the Problem: Georgia Radon Defense designed and installed a custom mitigation system in Gregg's partially finished basement. While specifics are unavailable, the system likely included:

  • Strategic Pipe Placement: To efficiently draw radon from beneath the foundation and vent it safely outdoors.
  • Powerful Radon Fan: To create continuous suction and effectively remove radon gas.
  • Manometer Monitoring: To track the system's performance and ensure optimal operation.
  • Sump Pump Pit Attention (if applicable): To address any potential interaction with a sump pump pit that could hinder the mitigation system.

The installed system effectively reduced radon levels to a safe 1.4 pCi/L, well below the EPA's recommended action level of 4 pCi/L.

5. What's Unique About This Situation? Gregg's prompt action upon discovering elevated radon levels during the home inspection ensured a smooth closing process. This highlights the importance of proactive radon testing during real estate transactions.

1. Why They Needed a Radon Mitigation System:

Concerned about his family's health, Kurt from Athens, GA took action after his radon monitor displayed an average reading of 7.0 pCi/L. This level exceeds the EPA's recommended action level for radon, a naturally occurring gas that can seep into homes and pose health risks.

2. Why Kurt Chose Georgia Radon Defense:

  • Proactive Approach: Kurt's additional crawlspace testing demonstrates a proactive concern for his family's well-being. Georgia Radon Defense resonates with this approach.
  • Customizable Solutions: The ability to incorporate an Aesthetic System and additional taps means Georgia Radon Defense offers systems tailored to individual needs.

3. What Caused the Problem:

Radon gas naturally occurs in the soil and can enter homes through cracks in the foundation, crawlspaces, or sump pump pits. Kurt's additional testing revealed the crawlspace as a significant contributor to the elevated radon level.

4. How We Fixed the Problem:

Georgia Radon Defense designed and installed a custom mitigation system for Kurt's home. The system included:

  • Aesthetic System - Exterior: Understanding the importance of curb appeal, this system prioritizes discretion for the exterior components.
  • Additional Tap: This strategically placed tap would target specific areas of radon accumulation within the finished basement.
  • Breathe EZ Air Cleaner: Depending on Kurt's needs, this air cleaner could have been installed to further enhance overall indoor air quality.
  • Crawlspace Encapsulation: This technique seals the crawlspace walls and floor with a vapor barrier, effectively preventing radon gas from entering the living space above.

5. What's Unique About This Situation?

Kurt's decision to conduct additional crawlspace testing before mitigation demonstrates a meticulous approach to identifying the source of the radon problem. This ensured a targeted solution for optimal results.
