How to Prepare for Your Radon Mitigation
Your radon mitigation is coming up, and we are looking forward to working with you. You may be wondering how to prepare and what to expect. Below we discuss a few things you can do to help prepare for your radon mitigation.
Prepare your Driveway and Garage for Radon Mitigation
First, if you want to back your cars out of the driveway, that allows us to pull our van in. This makes it easier to carry tools and materials into the house. It also ensures we are not blocking any of your vehicles in case you need to leave during the installation.
Next, we will need some space to stage some of our materials and cut the pipe out in the garage. If you do not have a garage, we may try to set up in the basement. We may also cut pipe outside or in the driveway if the weather permits.
If your installation is scheduled to take place over several days, we will try to move our equipment to the side of the garage so you can still pull in overnight.
Prepare Inside Your Home for Radon Mitigation
Next, we ask that you clear a path from either the garage or the nearest entry point to the basement. This will allow us to set up drop cloths and set up a staging area in the basement for some of our tools.
In addition, we ask that you clear out anything that may be in our way in the basement. Typically we need access to the sump basket if you have one, any floor-to-wall joints or block tops that need to be sealed.
If we talked about running pipe through a closet, please make sure that closet is cleared out ahead of time. We will also need access to the scuttle hole in the ceiling to get up into the attic.
What to Expect During Your Radon Mitigation
You do not have to be home for your radon mitigation installation as long as we have access to the house.
We will be using power tools and have a shop vac running, so it will be rather noisy.
The majority of our time will be spent in the basement.
There typically is not any dust created during the mitigation process, and we aim to leave your home cleaner than we found it.
If you have questions about your installation or are looking for an estimate on radon mitigation, contact us or give us a call at 612-474-1004.
We look forward to working with you.
