Radon exposure can be a problem in any home in Fountain. Radon is a odorless, colorless gas that is released from decaying uranium in the ground soil. If a home is built on top of soil with elevated levels of radon, that gas can get into the living areas of the home and cause many potential health hazards. If you have elevated levels you will need to install a radon mitigation in Fountain system.
These systems can vary based on type but the most common include a fan that sucks up the gas and diverts above the roof of your structure. This will keep the harmful gas away from liveable areas and safely release it into the atmosphere.
