Types of Radon Remediation

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends that radon levels above 4.0 pCi/L (picocuries or radon per liter of air) be reduced to below this level. This reduction and even lower is achieved by the installation of ARMS, Inc. radon remediation systems. ARMS radon remediation systems may include but are not limited to one or more of the following types of radon reduction methods:

*Active Soil Depressurization
*Drain Tile Depressurization
*Sub-membrane Depressurization
*Sump Pit Depressurization
*Heat/Energy Recovery Ventilation
*Passive Depressurization
*Positive Pressurized Ventilation
*Radon-Resistant New Construction
*Radon Sealants & Drain Traps
All radon systems are installed according to the latest regulatory guidelines. These standards have consisted of the Radon Mitigation Standards developed by the EPA in the past. The EPA currently recognizes the American Society of Testing and Materials, E-06 Committee's development of E-2121 standards for the radon industry. The radon industry is currently regulated by the governing organizations of the National Environmental Health Association and The National Radon Safety Board who certify their members. The EPA, no longer lists nor has it ever certified anyone for providing services for radon testing or remediation. The American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists is also playing an active roll in the further development of standards for the radon industry.

 Active Soil Depressurization Systems

Sub Slab Depresurization System
aka: Active Soil Depressurization System

Active soil depressurization systems usually consists of a hole drilled through the concrete slab in one or more locations with or without connections to other types of radon reduction methods. This would depend on the construction characteristics of the building. Active soil depressurization could consist of crawl space(s), different elevations of slabs within a basement or adjacent to a basement (such as a patio or garage), drain tile on the interior or exterior footings of a building, cisterns, radon-resistant new construction- soil gas collecting material, and or sump crocks. Active soil depressurization frequently uses drain tiles that either drain to daylight on the walkout end of the basement or may drain into a sump crock that could be pumped out utilizing a sump pump or the sump crock could also drain to daylight without the need for a sump pump. This type of active soil depressurization is often referred to as drain tile depressurization.
