Radon Mitigation in Akron’s Wallhaven Neighborhood

Here are a few pictures and videos from a recent installation in Akron. This cute little house was a ‘flip’ that tested 5.3 pCi/L during a real-estate transaction. We installed a simple exterior radon mitigation system, and dropped that number under 1.0 pCi/L.  Pictured are the process by which we […]
