How Does Radon Enter My Home?
Radon is pulled into your home through something called the stack effect. As warm air rises and exits out the top of the structure, the basement is pulling air in from the surrounding soil. That air from the soil not only has radon, but can also contain moisture, mold, carbon dioxide, and other soil gas pollutants that you just don’t want in your home. What a radon mitigation system does is actively pull air from the soil and exhaust it outside, preventing that air from ever entering your house to begin with.
