Hartford Radon Mitigation Needs Increase
Living in the Hartford area, you may have heard about the new recent HUD requirements that make it mandatory for all multi-family homes financed through HUD to have a radon test and radon mitigation. A question on many peoples’ mind is how to follow all of the regulation and ensure that your multi-family home is still funded. S.W.A.T. Environmental takes a look at the actions necessary to meet HUD regulations, and why it is important.
The first thing you must do in Hartford is figure out whether or not your multi-family home is even threatened by this gas. While it may appear easy, a test is actually mandatory. Like many gases, radon is invisible and colorless, meaning that a specific radon test is the only possible way to ensure that your home has safe levels of radon gas. Once your test results come back, you will be able to get a much better picture of whether or not Hartford radon mitigation is necessary. While in the past it may have been okay to only test a specific unit in the multi-family home, it is now required that all units receive testing and treatment appropriately.

Once hitting the atmosphere, it is so diluted that it will not affect your health. Only when it builds up in high concentrations from being trapped is this gas dangerous. We specialize in form fitting design to create a low visibility system. You will hardly know it is there.
It is important to follow HUD regulations to ensure that your multi-family home is not a reason for cancer for anyone who is renting it.
