Radon and Liability
Radon is a naturally occurring, radioactive gas that is odorless, colorless, and tasteless. It can enter buildings through cracks in the foundation, water sources, and windows. When it comes to your multifamily buildings, industrial factory workplaces, or other commercial sites, radon can become your liability. It is responsible for more than 21,000 deaths a year as the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. Your buildings could have a radon problem, meaning that your stakeholders are at risk.
Protect Environmental is the trusted partner for radon testing and mitigation in your commercial buildings. We deliver on efficient, quality, work for your peace of mind and to help you stay in front of liability and regulatory standards.
Commercial Radon Testing
The only way to know if there is a radon problem in any building is to test for it. Regardless of your building, we have the tools and expertise to efficiently test with accuracy. It is important to work with trusted partners who are highly skilled in the processes of radon testing to ensure that the results are accurate. Although the process is simple and only takes a few days, it is important that it’s done accurately for the integrity of the results. Our trusted professionals are the experts in radon testing. Work with us to ensure the safety of your buildings and to stay in front of liability and best practices.
Commercial Radon Mitigation
The EPA recommends a mitigation system be installed if a building tests at a level of 4 piC/L or more. If your building tests above 4 piC/L then you now have a liability on your hands to protect clients, residents, and facility workers from radon exposure. Our process for mitigation is efficient with a focus on quality. Our certified team uses the best materials to ensure your installed mitigation system protects your buildings for years to come.
Upon mitigating contaminated sites, we recommend testing every year to ensure that the system continues to function as it should. If the system is working, then the problem will continue to be resolved.
Radon System Operation Maintenance, and Monitoring
If your site was tested positive for radon and the problem was mitigated, it is important that your mitigation systems continue to function properly, otherwise, the risk could still remain and so could your liability. The only way to know if a problem persists is to test, and testing each year can become costly, especially for larger buildings. Our proprietary patented Vapor Sentinel Remote Monitoring System technology was designed for the ongoing monitoring of contaminated sites. It is easy to install on any new or previously installed mitigation system and tracks the ongoing function of your system, cutting down on your costs and liability.
