Most house and building owners in Newport MN feel relatively safe in their homes. Generally, air pollution is not a problem in Washington County, Minnesota. However, radon gas is a significant problem in our community and is the single greatest health threat to Newport MN families. Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that results from the breakdown of radioactive uranium, thorium and radium. Radon gas is a dangerous carcinogen that can cause adverse health effects to your family and ultimately lead to bronchial carcinoma. Radon is commonly detected in random air samples and is generally harmless when encountered outdoors. However, radon that rises into a structure from the soil or rock beneath the basement, crawl space, or foundation slab may become concentrated indoors and reach dangerously high levels. When this occurs, it can cause health issues, even lung cancer, in individuals who regularly occupy the structure.

Radium, thorium and uranium are naturally occurring elements that are commonly found in soil, bedrock and groundwater sources across the United States, including here in Newport MN. The widespread prevalence of these substances means that radon gas is an issue faced by many home and commercial property owners. Toxic radon poisoning is responsible for more deaths every year than drunk driving, AIDS, slip & falls, and murders.

Here is What Some of Our Radon Mitigation Customers from the Newport Area are Saying About Our Services:

“Your install crew and customer service were excellent!!! They explained everything clearly, educated me on the system and radon as a whole and were very respectful, wearing their masks. Clyde was a wealth of knowledge on radon and its effect on water and air, answered so many questions that provided peace of mind. His colleague, blanking on his name at the moment, was also excellent. He even noticed something on my furnace that I may want to get checked, sharing as a courtesy. Both had eyes and skills for safety, beyond just completing the job. My only disappointment is that I would have preferred a hard wire unit with a switch vs plug and cover for safety, but was never aware of or offered any options by SWAT prior to install. Now we have an electrician scheduled to come out and complete the job, but it has become much more involved, expensive project than planned to tap into our panel as they need to run conduit to meet code. Since I’ll have to pay an electrician regardless, wish it was to connect a switch as would have preferred that over outside electrical outlet plugged in with cover since it’s such a permanent unit. I was appreciative of their prep work to help with planning for electrician coming in. Overall your team was phenomenal! ” – R. Dailey, Newport

“We had many appointments that had to be rescheduled due to weather and SWAT worked with us and rescheduled two times!!! Steve Dawson, Ed and Ethan were so professional to work with and were happy to have them in our home.” – S. Enos, Newport

Radon Testing & Mitigation in Newport MN Homes

Radon testing is of utmost importance to ensure the safety of your home and your loved ones. Every home should be tested for radon exposure, as elevated levels can pose serious health risks. Take action today and learn more about the importance of radon testing by visiting the CDC’s website.

Without testing, most Newport property owners aren’t aware of the presence of radon gas until someone who lives in their household or works in their business develops serious health problems. Short-term tests for radon are conducted over a period of two to seven days while long-term tests measure the levels of radon for 90 days or longer. Information gathered from both types of tests is valuable in determining the extent of the gas’s potential impact on the property and its inhabitants. These tests are available in home improvement “big box” stores, such as Lowe’s and Home Depot, and in some Newport MN hardware stores. When radon levels are 4 pCi/L or higher, radon mitigation is recommended.

Tests are conducted by placing a small canister, cardboard strip, or digital measurement device in the lowest level of the structure where the gas is most likely to accumulate. The collection kit is left in one location for the specified amount of time and is then collected and processed to determine the level of radon that was present during the testing period. The residents or workers who occupy the property are asked to reduce exterior ventilation as much as possible during the test, but no other input or actions are required. We realize it can often be difficult to keep all windows closed, especially during hot Newport, Minnesota summers, but this is very important to assess accurate results. Once we’ve determined the presence and level of radon in a structure, our team can then offer a range of mitigation options that are tailored to the specific situation.

If Your Home Has Elevated Radon Levels, Don’t Panic! In Newport MN Radon Mitigation Systems are Very Common.

Due to radon’s radioactive characteristics and the serious health problems associated with long-term radon exposure, Newport property owners should take immediate steps to mitigate even moderate levels of radon gas in their buildings. According to Stormey Demarco, radiation exposure causes more fatalities every year than any other environmental pollutant. “The tiny radioactive particles released from radon gas can take a long time to make their way into someone’s lungs and become trapped. That said, it can take up to five years after being exposed to radon before an individual experiences shortness of breath, wheezing, or any other symptoms typical of lung cancer.”

At SWAT Environmental of Newport MN, we supply an array of radon removal options that are designed to prevent radon entry into the dwelling. Our mitigation systems operate by creating a vacuum in the soil beneath or immediately adjacent to the structure. This negative pressure draws any radon that is present upwards through the connected piping instead of entering the building’s basement, crawl space, or living area. The gas is then safely released through a vent above the roofline.
