Lakeville – 05/29/2015

Location: Lakeville, MN

Cost: $1575

Initial Radon Level: 5.7 pCi/L

Post Mitigation Radon Level: 0.3 pCi/L

This home had a very long pipe run but we were able to install a mitigation system that was successful.  The drain tile helped to reduce the radon levels.  We sealed the sump basket lid and installed a view port.  The radon pipe in the basement went up the basement wall and out into the garage.


In the garage we installed a u-tube, an indicator that the fan is still running.


Since there was a room above the garage we needed to run the radon pipe across the garage and into the attic.  A fire collar was installed on both ends of the pipe to prevent the spread of fire.


In the attic we installed a radon fan to draw the radon out of the ground and vent it outside.  The electrical connection was installed by a licensed electrician.  A black radon vent was used to match the color of the vents already installed on the roof.


We were able to complete this project on time and reduce the radon levels. If you need your home tested for radon or a radon mitigation system installed to reduce your radon levels, please don’t wait to protect yourself and your family, contact us now.
