Keep Your Family Safe! Get Expert Radon Mitigation From Big Mountain Insulators, Whitefish, Montana

Your home should be a place where you feel safe and secure. Unfortunately, radon—an odorless, colorless, and tasteless gas that has been linked to lung cancer—can access your home through cracks and other small openings in your walls and foundation. Big Mountain Insulators in Whitefish, MT, has provided insulation installation, metal roof restoration, mold remediation, and radon mitigation services to clients in Northwest Montana over 35 years. If you discover radon in your home, their professionals will use a radon mitigation system to effectively remove the gas and make your home safe again.

What does a radon mitigation system involve?

  • Testing: Big Mountain Insulators will send qualified experts to test the radon levels in your home. Radon is naturally produced when the uranium in soil, rocks, and water breaks down. Since the air pressure in your home is lower than the air pressure outside, this gas is pulled into your home through the cracks in your home’s walls. If your home is tested and has radon levels of four pCi/L or higher, you need radon mitigation.
  • Reducing Radon Levels: The professionals at Big Mountain Insulators know that your house type will determine which methods are used. Underground pipes and an exhaust fan can be installed under your home to remove the gases before it has a chance to enter the building. The cracks and openings can also be sealed to cut off access and prevent radon from accessing your home.
  • Follow-Up Testing: Big Mountain Insulators advises having another radon test done no sooner than 24 hours and no later than 30 days after the radon reduction system has been installed. You should also test every two years to ensure the radon levels stay low.

Whether your home is a new construction or has been standing for decades, Big Mountain Insulators recommends a radon inspection to keep you and your family safe.
