Maine - EPA Map of Radon Zones

Zone 1 (Red)

Highest radon levels over 4 pCi/L (picocuries per liter). EPA strongly suggests you install a radon mitigation system.

Zone 2 (Orange)

Radon levels between 2 and 4 pCi/L. EPA recommends you consider installing a radon mitigation system.

Zone 3 (Yellow)

Radon levels less than 2pCi/L. While risk is lower, there may still be neighborhoods or homes with higher radon levels than the average. EPA suggests a radon specialist test your home to see if you have dangerously high radon levels.

Installing Your Radon Mitigation System

Radon mitigation and testing in Maine

Our effective radon mitigation systems are designed to pull radon from the home, safely expelling it outside. These systems are installed by our radon experts, who are trained in accordance with the highest industry standards.

Not only has our skilled team undergone extensive training, but each of our contractors is also fully licensed to perform every necessary radon service. Our professionals operate within full compliance of the radon gas industry's best practices. This means that the highest standards have been met, and only the best quality solutions have been implemented.

There are a number of factors that impact how we design your radon mitigation system. Specifically, if you have a basement or a crawl space instead of a slab foundation, that will be a major determining feature in deciding which mitigation system is best for your home.

Maine Radon & Environmental also offers multifamily radon mitigation in compliance with the HUD Radon Policy. In the event that tests reveal radon levels exceeding 4 picocuries (pCi/L), mitigation services must be performed by a trained expert in order to reduce the level of radon gas to a safe amount.

Typical Radon Mitigation Techniques

As mentioned previously, these procedures vary depending on the type of system installed.

  • The "Stack Effect" Is Addressed
    When air--and radon gas--naturally move upwards like air moving up through a smoke stack, this is known as the stack effect. Air is pulled up to your attic and the upper levels of your home from your basement, crawl space, or any lower levels. You can minimize the role of radon gas in the stack effect by depressurizing the soil underneath your home's structure.
  • Radon Gas Is Redirected
    After depressurizing the soil beneath your home's structure, a hole is drilled into the concrete foundation slab, basement floor, or the surrounding earth in order to create a suction point. Sometimes, numerous suction points are necessary. Once radon gas makes its way through the hole, it passes through a PVC pipe that runs through the home or outside of it.
  • The Radon Gas Is Vented Away From Your Home
    Radon gas is vented through the PVC pipe to a fan located either in the attic or along the top of the structure. Next, the gas is directed out of the pipe and away from your home.
  • All Radon Entryways Are Sealed
    Once radon gas has been vented away from your home, our professionals work on preventative measures. We seal all pathways that radon can seep through with a urethane caulking compound, including any gaps, cracks, and openings.
  • A Final System Analysis is Performed
    In order to ensure that the radon mitigation system is functioning according to industry standards, our reliable team will conduct a comprehensive inspection. This inspection includes checking to see that the radon system is properly labeled, confirming that the fan is functioning properly, and reviewing other essential details of the system.
  • Your Home Is Retested For Radon
    In addition to our Final System Analysis, your trusted technician will retest radon levels in your home within 30 days of the completed installation. This step offers confirmation that the system is effectively maintaining recommended radon levels.
