Don't try to fix a Radon problem on your own! One in ten systems are installed correctly when done by a non-certified homeowner or handyman. There are specific guidelines that all nationally certified radon mitigators follow these nationally enforced codes and standards can be very complicated for a novice to interpret. These regulations protect the home or building owner and it's inhabitants by insuring the longevity and effectively of the radon system. Applicable standards: EPA-RMS (1994), AARST ASD-RMS (2006) and/or ASTM E2121 (2001-2008).
For your own protection it is important to make sure your radon mitigator have current radon certifications and radon mitigation specific insurance, these documents should be included with any radon mitigation proposal. (Common contractor insurance policies do not cover radon mitigation and testing.)
Keep in mind that Radon levels are affected by the seasons. Winter will always bring higher levels of radon due to the air temprature differential and the vacuum that this creates within the home or building. If you have a system installed in the summer it is advisable to make sure that the system be guarantee for cold weather test of less than 4 pCi/L, so that it will be a habitable space year round.
If timing is of essence, which in many cases it is, it is beneficial to seek out the nearest certified radon mitigator so that you can discuss timely solutions.
