SWAT Environmental radon mitigation specialists will come out to your home, inspect and test it. They will then take steps to solve your home’s radon gas problem permanently. For example, in many cases one of the first steps of the radon mitigation process that will be necessary in your home will simply be hunting down and sealing all cracks and spaces in your house’s foundation. This will help prevent the radon from continuing to enter your house and again become a problem.
