It might seem odd to be talking about health problems on a waterproofing website. But unfixed water and moisture problems can have a lasting negative effect on your family’s health. We certainly cannot fix any existing health problems, but we can fix the environmental factors that contribute to them.
Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in America. High levels of moisture do not cause a radon problem, but the installation of an OPEN SYSTEM to manage your water problem can introduce radon into your living area. Proper sealing of any systems, as well as full encapsulation of all crawlspaces, and proper sealing of walls and floors is essential to minimizing the affects radon can have on your family’s health. If your radon levels are high enough, you may even need to install a professional Radon Remediation system by a licensed and certified Radon Remediation Specialist.
