Schools and Commercial Buildings

Radon testing and mitigating in large buildings such a schools, commercial buildings and apartment buildings is much more complex than a simple residential home. It requires additional knowledge about structural features, HVAC systems, how occupancy can affect radon levels and more.

The EPA has not developed any standards for testing commercial buildings, they have, however, developed protocols for testing schools. These are the standards we follow when testing all large buildings including schools, office buildings, apartment complexes and even some homes with very large footprints.

Because these larger buildings are built very different than a typical residential home, designing and installing a mitigation system in these large buildings requires additional testing and evaluation to ensure the radon levels are lowered effectively and efficiently.

Radon testing and, if needed, mitigation should be part of your indoor air quality management program. Call us and we will determine if it is a problem and provide you with solutions.
