After your radon mitigation system is installed, it’s important not to ignore it and assume that everything is working properly. Instead, make sure you have a maintenance plan in place with the installation company. While many companies perform this maintenance as part of the installation price, some may require you to schedule them on your own.
Some of the services that radon mitigation companies will perform as part of the maintenance on your system include the following:
- Checking for and resealing cracks in the sump pump
- Diagnosing vacuum issues
- Re-coating pipes
- Performing radon tests
Without regular maintenance, your system could suffer from wear and tear, resulting in a breakdown. Because these systems need to be running continuously for them to work, you need to have a professional keep tabs on all the different parts to ensure they are functioning properly.
