Most house and building owners in North Barrington IL feel relatively safe in their homes. Generally, air pollution is not a problem in Cook County, Illinois. However, radon gas is a significant problem in our community and is the single greatest health threat to North Barrington IL families. Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that results from the breakdown of radioactive uranium, thorium and radium. Educating yourself about radon can help you protect your loved ones and yourself from the health risks. 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 North Barrington IL. The widespread prevalence of these substances means that radon gas is an issue faced by many home and commercial property owners. While radon exposure can jeopardize anyone’s health, it can prove especially dangerous for children.  Studies show that this is because the cells in children divide more frequently than in adults.  Therefore, the risk of genetic damage and associated health problems are far more likely.

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

“The initial installer did a great job. He took the time to weigh his options for routing the unit from the basement to the outside, and chose the option that was more difficult for him, but much more direct and clean for me. I appreciate the extra effort he put in, and despite the difficulty (100+ year old house, had to go through concrete) the cut was clean and there was no mess at all when he was done. The fan needed to be replaced, and the installer that came out was also very quick and professional. I was skeptical of SWAT, given how much less your quote for a Radon mitigation unit was than other companies, but I am extremely pleased with the quality of service and product.” – H. Ferrari, North Barrington

“We feel special. We had 5 tech arrive for the install. This was a training session for them. We were very happy with their work.” – L. Jefferson, North Barrington

Radon Testing & Mitigation in North Barrington IL 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 North Barrington 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 North Barrington IL 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 North Barrington, Illinois 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 North Barrington IL Radon Mitigation Systems are Very Common.

Due to radon’s radioactive characteristics and the serious health problems associated with long-term radon exposure, North Barrington property owners should take immediate steps to mitigate even moderate levels of radon gas in their buildings. According to Jaamal Roland, radiation exposure causes more fatalities every year than any other environmental pollutant. Radon gas is radioactive and damages lung tissue which can eventually lead to tumor development.

At SWAT Environmental of North Barrington IL, 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.

Our North Barrington IL Customers Rave About Our Top-Notch Staff & Service:

“Everything went quick and smooth, team was very professional. My only complaint would be that after completion and some time to think about it, I don’t necessarily like how far the piping sticks out from the wall before going into the block. The installer explained to me he was aware and it was up to me if I would prefer it to be changed. ” – J. Mena, North Barrington

“Brian was amazing. He called me before he started and explained what he was going to do. When I got home his work was equally amazing all the areas he worked was cleaned better than it was. Great job” – R. Carrion, North Barrington
