From dirty & dangerous to clean & safe. Encapsulating your crawl space makes it ready for a radon mitigation system and provides other benefits, too.
Is your family being exposed to carcinogenic radon gas? This invisible, odorless radioactive gas emanates naturally from soil and rock. It makes its way into buildings through construction joints and cracks or gaps in foundations.
Because radon is the leading cause of lung cancer after smoking, the Environmental Protection Agency recommends that all homes be tested for radon.
If a radon test shows concentrations of 4.0 piCi/L (4 picocuries per liter of air) or higher, the EPA recommends that a radon mitigation system be installed to reduce exposure levels.
If your home has a crawl space with a dirt floor, there’s no barrier to prevent radon gas from accumulating in the crawl space and permeating into the air you breathe indoors. A radon mitigation system will include a durable air and moisture barrier to completely cover the crawl space’s dirt floor.
