Cost Controlling Factors for Radon Gas Mitigation

Radon Mitigation mn cost are our basic questions that are asked from us on daily basis. Everyone wants to know the estimation before they let us start work on their property. It is estimated that Radon Mitigation cost lies between 800$ to like 1500$ or even more for some houses. As every house is different from other in design perspective, space perspective etc. so their cost varies accordingly. This is a standard that we use for estimation or telling or customers the cost but remember if someone tells you that he’ll do your work in less than the above specified price than this should raise red flags because either he is not certified or he’ll not give you insurance or he is not registered or licensed to do such kind of work from EPA. Because in Wisconsin and Minnesota states there is no rules and regulations for radon gas removal so any one could say that he’ll do radon gas mitigation and try to setup a Radon Mitigation System. Beware of unprofessional and uncertified contractors because its life our death we are talking about here. We’ll tell you some of the things by which you’ll get a rough idea that how we have estimated the cost of Radon Gas Mitigation.
• Electrical Wiring for Radon Mitigation System is an important factor which uncertified and unprofessional contractors usually ignore but remember to ask about electrical wiring and whether a master electrician will come to install it or not because wiring may cost you around 300$ and anything below this should raise red flags.
• Always make sure to install submersible sump pump system because this will not only save you from back drafting of CO2 but also gives you proper leak proof place so that proper vacuum can be generated and Radon Gas can be removed properly. It will cost you around 150$ or more depending upon the size and brand of the pump used.
• Remember in older homes Radon Mitigation Technician will dug a hole beneath a slab and from there on set up the whole mitigation system. It’s a cost-effective procedure as compared to drain-slab etc. because more labor and time is utilized in it and if the soil underneath is compressed or is in the form of a clay then the technician would install a bigger fan which will also increase our mitigation cost.
• If you have a dirt or gravel crawlspaces in your homes then this would increase the cost of your mitigation because unlike soil bed, they give direct exposure to radon gas so for safety purposes they are to be sealed first before applying any sort of mitigation and for this extra material i.e. adhesive, piping, plastic sheets etc. are used once they are sealed then after that sub-slab depressurization method is used for removing the radon gas. The exact cost is calculated by knowing the space i.e. dirt area and how much material and extra time be utilized.
• If there is a weeping wall in the house then make sure to seal it first before applying mitigation because if it is sealed then there would be no carbon monoxide depreciation and back drafting of any sort. So, its cost is calculated by finding out the area of the weeping wall and extra labor that is utilized for covering it.
