Radon Mitigation – Apartments, Condos, Single Family Dwellings, Florida

Radon Mitigation for Florida's Hot, Humid Climate

We Mitigate Radon Emissions From Three Sources:

  • From Building Materials
  • From the Soil Under the Slab
  • From Building “Radon Reservoirs” where Radon-Rich Gas Accumulates

Radon Mitigation is Performed By:

  • Pressurization and Dilution with highly filtered outdoor air
  • Active Soil Depressurization
  • Radon Extraction Directly From “Radon Reservoirs”
  • Sealing of “Radon Fountains”

SmartVentilation Radon MItigation Installations are Performed By a Florida Certified Radon Mitigation Business, RadonRESSQ, LLC

RADON MITIGATION 2.0 Advancements Come From Our Continuous R&D Program. We constantly seek
  • to improve Radon Mitigation System performance
  • to eliminate unintended adverse consequences

A Competitor’s Radon System Failure Alarm.

 This system failed many years before, but nobody knew. The switch and the meter were behind a closed metal door that was rarely opened.

Florida Products Liability Law Tolls the Statute of Limitations until the defect is discovered, so the owner might be able to sue the mitigator even 20 years later

Your long term, continuing safety and comfort are our highest priorities

SmartVentilation/RadonRESSQ can make RADON go away with all sorts of wonderful extra benefits to keep your family healthy, safe, and comfortable. AND to increase the FMV of your home.

In our R&D We have developed, tested, proven and now manufacture products that WORK to make your new home’s indoor air quality SUPERB! Nobody else has them because it is so much work to develop them, and no one else went to the trouble.

This is Why We Developed Our Own Air Intake Filter Instead of the Filter Other Mitigators Use

Fresh Air: Super-Cleaned

SmartVentilation Type III , N95-equivalent filter removes the bad stuff to keep your family safe from outdoor pollen, mold spores, PM2.5, bacteria, viruses, red tide and blue green algae neuro toxins. MERV 14-15, for 18-24 months without service. This filter is the equivalent of a large N-95 face mask that can super-clean all of the air entering your home. (If you keep your doors a windows closed) During pollen season, asthma and allergy sufferers will find your home to be a remarkable “Sanctuary of Relief.”

Master Control Panel

SmartVentilation’s Master Control Panel makes it easy to take charge of the Air that your Family Breathes for Reduced allergy and asthma triggers, Improved Cognitive Function,  Sleep and Sense of Well-being

Robotic Mold Prevention

The Master Control Panel senses indoor humidity second-by-second. If it rises above  a precise 59.9%, fresh air system operation is suspended within seconds to allow the air conditioner to complete dehumidification or outdoor air to drop from peak humidity levels. RESULT?  No mold worries from hot,  humid fresh air. When relative humidity drops below 59.9% system operation is restored within 1-2 seconds. SmartVentilation Technology makes new dehumidifier installations unnecessary.

Our 16 channel data acquisition system can identify anomalies so that we can quickly focus on solutions

Adjustable Radon Level

The Master Control Panel includes a Radon Level Controller that allows an individual to adjust the radon level in seconds with only a jeweler’s screwdriver. Over time and seasons, radon levels may change. Adjustment is simple, quick and effective. The digital meter reveals the number of cubic feet per minute that the system is delivering

5/5

Even the most generous warranty is worthless if you do not know that your radon system has failed.

Radon Meter With Audible Alarm

As a bonus, we provide a reliable, fourth-generation, American-made electronic radon meter with an audible alarm so that if our system fails, you will know it  immediately. After all, what is a warranty worth if you don’t know to call for repairs?

PLUG ‘N PLAY: SmartVentilation’s products are designed to be Plug ‘n Play so that almost anyone can service our systems in minutes.

We designed, tested and manufacture the following EXCLUSIVE SmartVentilation Products for both high and low rise buildings

  1. A fully automatic electronic indoor relative humidity controller to oversee radon system operation and to prevent High Indoor Relative Humidity and Mold from radon system operation
  2. Custom Variable Speed Air Delivery Fans that  may be tuned to deliver a precisely correct rate of fresh air to avoid the tragic over-ventilation of single-speed fans
  3. Custom, long life and high performance air filters to keep the bad stuff out of your lungs, even better than the filter that cleans the air that your car’s engine inhales. Good for 18-24  months.
  4. An electronic Radon Level controller to allow you to adjust your radon level in seconds with a jeweler’s screwdriver
  5. A digital performance meter to allow you to adjust your radon level with precision
  6. A Blue Boar rig to allow fresh air ports to be created from indoors even on upper floors of high rise condo buildings
  7. The Daisy Ductless fresh air/filtration module easily installed on any floor and meets all Codes and Standards including filter service from indoors

We Found That Radon Is Emitted From Poured Concrete, Hollow Concrete Blocks, Even Some Drywall Material as well as Out of the Ground

Not only is Radon found in ground floor homes, but Radon finds and contaminates upper floors, too. On upper floors, the most frequent source is the porous concrete blocks used in the construction of exterior (curtain) walls. Upper floors may even have higher radon levels than the ground floor. We have found that air conditioner installation defects on upper floors can unintentionally “seek out and mine” more radon from “Radon Reservoirs” in other parts of a building.  But in some buildings, unintentional radon pathways exist and deliver much more radon to one dwelling unit than to any other, even though they may be side-by-side. We have developed “Radon Extraction” Hardware to extract radon directly to the out of doors. In August, 2019, Wayne made two Radon Extraction Presentations to AARST’s International Radon Symposium in Denver.

“Our new home is on the 13th floor. Our home inspector suggested we test for radon anyway. We did. Radon was 6.3, well over the USEPA Action Level. We got it fixed. Our Home Inspector is our Hero.”

Daisy Ductless Technology Mitigates Radon emitted from building materials from first to top floor penthouses of residential multihousing. 

The highest radon we ever mitigated in south Florida was in a 23rd floor penthouse of a high rise condo building on Pelican Bay Boulevard, Naples, FL-  nearly 35 picoCuries per liter. We fixed it. It was not easy.

Radon Reduction occurs by Pressurization of the Breathing Zone and Dilution within a unit’s Breathing Zone. Radon Extraction removes radon from “Radon Reservoirs” where Radon accumulates within the building’s recesses, voids and cavities, and from which it may be transported into the breathing zone by unintentional air flows created by air handler operation.

Radon Mitigation Issues That We Have Identified and Resolved:

  1. How may an air intake port be bored through an exterior wall without outdoor access? (upper floors) and without creating new construction, requiring cleanup or requiring restoration? SOLUTION? The Blue Boar Precision Port-Boring Rig and Cuttings Capture System
  2. How may fresh air mitigation be performed without involving a slow and problematic permitting process? Miami/Dade? SOLVED: Engineer the technology to avoid the need for a permit to keep things quick and simple.
    • Do not penetrate the roof to avoid need for a roofing permit
    • Do not connect to an air conditioner to avoid need for a mechanical permit
    • Do not connect to plumbing to avoid need for a plumbing permit
    • Do not penetrate through a structural component to avoid need for an engineer
    • Use low voltage plug-in power to avoid need for an electrical permit.
  3. How can a MERV 13 (suggested by US EPA) or better (MERV 14-15) fresh air filter be easily serviced/replaced from indoors as required by ASHRAE Standard 62.2-2019? SOLVED: We designed and manufacture a custom air filtration system that meets all requirements.
    1. How can high humidity and mold be prevented automatically 24/7/365? SOLVED: We designed and manufacture a reliable and automatic relative humidity controller.
  4. How can radon reduction be adjusted to achieve the desired radon reduction without guesses that often create over-ventilation/moisture issues? SOLVED: We designed and manufactured a custom master control panel that provides control and a digital performance meter.
  5. How can a radon mitigation system be designed to be serviced or totally replaced in minutes with a new or rebuilt module by most any handy person? SOLVED: We engineered the entire system to be of Plug ‘n Play Simplicity.
