Radon Mitigation is the process of reducing radon levels in the occupied space of homes, offices, or any other habitable building. When either an approved short-term or long-term radon measurement shows undesirable average levels of radon gas, Our team in Lake Tahoe & The surrounding areas recommends mitigation. The EPA has established 4.0 picocuries as the average level that they recommend being mitigated. (The World Health Organization has established a 2.7 picocuries action level) That said, no level of radon gas is safe, so levels below the action level could be a hazard.
We are a certified radon mitigation contractor, licensed in both California and Nevada. At Tahoe Mold and Water, we specialize in high-quality custom systems that are both effective and fit stringent design requirements. Typical radon systems may not be suitable for high-value properties where quality and aesthetics are of utmost importance. Our systems not only provide the most effective solution for your problem but also can be concealed. Our experience in high-end construction allows us to find complementary and matching materials to construct fan housings and provide substitutions for PVC plumbing.
Offering custom radon mitigation systems, we focus on quality. This does not make us a good fit for price-conscious consumers. We also offer design, measurement, and consulting services including:
- Assessment of previous measurement reports.
- Mitigation system design (our designs become the property of the customer, and can be utilized for DIY installation, or to provide a work scope for mitigation contractor bidding.)
- Post-mitigation measurement and inspection of a newly installed system to confirm it is effective and installed properly.
- Inspection and repair recommendations for old systems, or systems that have failed.
Design/Consultations – $225 or $125- if done in conjunction with a radon measurement
Includes one site visit and 1 hour of design/consulting work. $105/hr. after that.
