Radon Mitigation Atlanta is the Solution for HUD
Recently, we posted in regard to the new HUD regulations in regard to radon gas. In case you are unaware, HUD has started to make it a requirement to have a mitigation system installed in all multi-family homes that test positively for radon gas. This requirement only applies to all multi-family homes that are financed through HUD, but it is still a good guideline to use at not only protecting the safety of your home, but protecting your investment.
In order to understand the process you will be going through, S.W.A.T. Environmental will lay out the basic process for radon mitigation Atlanta. This will make it easy for you to understand what your family will see in the coming months, and provide a little advise at handling the situation. Whether or not you own a multi-family home, this can be beneficial at laying out the process of radon mitigation Atlanta.
Radon Mitigation Atlanta First Steps
The first step of radon mitigation Atlanta is to have your home tested. Once your home is tested, you will get a much clearer idea of whether or not you are in danger. For multi-family homes, it is important to note that all units of the multi-family home be tested. Radon may be infecting one unit, but not another unit. The main reason testing is so important is that this gas cannot be seen or smelled. This means that without testing, there is literally no way of knowing whether or not your Atlanta home is at risk.
There is long term and short term testing. Both will give you the results you need, but typically long term testing is slightly more accurate. It is encouraged that all doors and windows remain shut for the majority of testing in order to provide the most accurate readings. Once you receive your test results, you will be able to make an informed decision of whether or not a radon mitigation Atlanta is needed.
HUD is now requiring all multi-family homes with high levels of radon gas have a radon mitigation system installed. Whether or not your home is financed through HUD, if it returns high levels of radon gas, then it is probably a good idea to have a mitigation system installed.

Do I Need Radon Mitigation?
Often we speak with people who will directly ask us whether or not they need radon mitigation. This is a fair question, but let me explain to you why it may be somewhat complicated. Odorless, colorless, tasteless, and essentially non-existent to the human body, radon testing is the only true way to determine whether or not you need radon mitigation. It is important to note that just because one test may return negative results, you cannot predict the levels of uranium in your soil, or how quickly they may break down to form radon gas. Although it this gas is essentially invisible to us, its health risks are not. Each year 21,000 people die from radon gas, and roughly 7.8 million households have above normal levels. My suggestion to Atlanta residents is always to test your home frequently, and if needed, contact us for a free quote on a professionally installed radon mitigation system.
