Keeping Your Family Safe From Toxic Radon Gas Exposure Across the Greater Portland Area

“Indoor radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and breathing it over prolonged periods can present a significant health risk to families all over the country. It’s important to know that this threat is completely preventable. Radon can be detected with a simple test and fixed through well-established venting techniques.” 
U.S. Surgeon General Health Advisory | January 2005

Facts About Radon 

  • Radon is an odorless, tasteless and invisible gas produced by the decay of naturally occurring uranium in soil and water
  • Radon is a form of ionizing radiation and a proven carcinogen 
  • How radon enters the home: 
    • Stack effect: the building acts like a vacuum 
    • Cracks in floors and walls
    • Construction joints
    • Gaps around pipes 
    • Cavities inside walls 
    • The water supply or well water 
  • It’s estimated that at least 1 in 7 properties in the Portland/Vancouver metro area have elevated radon levels 
  • As many as 50% of the homes in “Hot Spots” including Alameda Ridge in Portland and Mill Plain in Clark County, Washington have radon levels above 4.0 pCi/L 
  • Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the US (it’s the leading cause in non-smokers) 
  • Radon kills over 20,000 Americans every year, which is more than drunk drivers and home fires combined 
  • The surgeon general and the EPA recommend that all properties be tested for radon 
  • You want radon tests on homes to be recent, within the past 2 years 
  • If people have renovated or altered their home since they last tested, they should re-test 
  • Winter is the best time to test for radon because the home is all sealed up 
  • When buying a home buyer or buyer’s agent should ask about a radon test 
  • Having a radon test already done with favorable results can speed up the sale process

Radon mitigation systems for existing homes and buildings 

Environmental Works provides a free radon mitigation system consultation and quote if elevated radon levels have been found. All of our active residential radon systems are guaranteed for a Lifetime to remain below the World Health Organization (WHO) action level of 2.7 pCi/L, and we always design our systems to be as aesthetically pleasing and as quiet as possible.

Using advanced sub-slab pressure testing equipment, we can design and install an effective radon mitigation system while using the quietest and most energy efficient radon fan possible. Our radon fans are made in the USA of high quality materials and are designed specifically for radon reduction and exterior “wet” applications. These continuous radon fans carry a 5 year manufacturer warranty, but typically last 7-10 years with no maintenance. Many of our radon abatement systems can be hidden within the interior of the house and exit the roof like a standard plumbing vent. Exterior systems are installed in an ideal location and may be painted to match existing exterior color. Our systems receive a short-term post mitigation test to insure that they are performing correctly. 

Our radon reduction systems are typically “active” systems using a continuous radon fan and vent piping to create a negative pressure under a concrete slab (sub-slab depressurization) under a soil-gas membrane (vapor barrier) in a crawl space (sub-membrane depressurization) or a combination of these systems. Some radon mitigation systems may also be incorporated into a new or existing sump pump when subsurface groundwater is also an issue. 

“Passive” radon reduction systems may be sufficient in new construction projects with the option to make them active if radon levels test above the EPA action level of 4.0 pCi/L. Every radon reduction system is designed specifically for your home or building using high quality materials and workmanship.
