Like any other utility systems that are continuously used at home, radon mitigation systems are generally self-supporting. Apart from a regular visual inspection, it doesn't require any major routine maintenance to ensure the performance of your mitigation system and the level of radon in the safe zone.
The only critical part of a radon mitigation system is the radon mitigation fan which supplies your radon pipe. It operates non-stop to keep radon from accumulating to dangerous levels. Thus, fan upkeep is necessary. Good thing, these radon fans have a warranty covering repairs and replacement with usually a maximum term of five years.
In addition, radon mitigation systems have a built-in warning device to alert you in case there's any glitch in the system. The Environmental Protection Agency required these warning devices, hence, make sure your mitigation system has it installed. During your regular visual check, you might as well check the functionality of your radon warning device at least once every three months to ensure they are working properly. This simple task ensures the safety of your family from dangerous radioactive radon gas.
