Whole-House Radon Mitigation Experts in Central New Jersey
Protect Yourself and Your Family from Radon
Control your indoor air for radon mitigation
Radon is a naturally occurring gas that is released as uranium breaks down rocks, substrate, and water. The gas often enters homes or commercial properties through cracks in the foundation and floors. Found throughout the United States, radon is an odorless, colorless, tasteless gas that is highly carcinogenic, with long-term exposure posing significant health hazards, including lung cancer.
The presence of radon has increased significantly in the Central NJ over the years and is a major concern for most residents and businesses.
Radon Testing & Results
A Radon Test is the only effective means of determining the levels of radon in a residential or commercial property. During the test:
- Specialized measurement devices are placed throughout the property by our NRPP Certified Radon Professionals.
- The devices are left to collect samples and data from the indoor air over the next 2-4 days.
- After 2-4 days, the samples are collected and sent to a certified lab for analysis.
- Results will be available within 48 hours of sample delivery.

Process Of Active Soil Depressurization
Active soil depressurization radon mitigation (ASD) system is the most successful method used today for lowering radon levels.
The ASD system depressurizes the soil by actively drawing in the air and gas from below the slab and exhausts it above the roofline through a 3-4 inch PVC pipe.
Your home creates negative pressure that can draw radon gas inside. With this radon mitigation system, air can be drawn in from underneath the home and can then be released above the roof.
Typically, pipes will be installed in either your basement or your garage. These pipes will run through the closets throughout your home, and they will lead to a fan that is installed in your attic.
Since radon gas will be drawn out with this system and released above your home, the radon will be expelled outside of the home rather than within it. This will help reduce the current radon levels within your home, instantly making it safer for you and your family. Plus, in the future, you should not have to worry about the radon entering your home, as long as the system is properly installed and maintained.
With this type of system, a system monitor will be put in place near the vent line in either your basement or one of your household closets. This system monitor will allow you to keep an eye on the system to make sure that it’s functioning properly.
