High levels of radon gas are commonly found throughout Delaware & E. Shore Maryland and because radon gas cannot be seen, smelled, or tasted the only way to ensure that you and your family are not affected by this dangerous gas is to have one of our experts visit your home and perform proper testing. Radon testing is the fastest & most effective way to ensure the safety of your family. Depending on the results of the test, Lawson Home Services can offer several radon mitigation solutions that will limit exposure to the gas and also ventilate it away from your home. Our radon mitigation methods are highly successful and we always stand behind our work! To learn more about radon gas mitigation and testing call or click today!

Job Stories From Hockessin, DE
Breathing Easy in Hockessin: Lawson Home Services Lowers Radon Risk for Health-Conscious Homeowner

Why They Needed a Radon Mitigation System:

Years of concern about indoor air quality, particularly potential radon exposure in their Hockessin, Delaware basement, finally prompted action for a health-conscious homeowner. A radon test confirmed their worries, revealing levels exceeding the EPA's recommended safe action level. Radon gas, a naturally occurring, colorless, and odorless gas, can seep into homes through cracks in the foundation, accumulating to dangerous levels if left unchecked. Radon mitigation was necessary to safeguard the homeowner's health.

Why They Chose Lawson Home Services:

Lawson Home Services earned the homeowner's business due to the company's reputation for exceptional customer service and promptness. Positive experiences shared by past clients played a role in their decision.

What's Causing the Problem:

Radon gas is the culprit. This gas can enter basements and crawlspaces through cracks or foundation gaps, posing a health risk if left unchecked. The high level detected in the homeowner's test confirmed the presence of radon and the need for mitigation.

How We Fixed the Problem (Mitigation Process):

  1. Prompt Action and Clear Communication: Lawson Home Services streamlined the process by offering a free quote via email upon initial contact. Following the homeowner's prompt appointment booking, our team conducted a thorough inspection of the basement, identifying potential entry points for radon gas. Our certified radon mitigation specialists then explained the necessary steps for a customized mitigation system.

  2. Expert Mitigation: With complete confidence in our expertise, the homeowner readily accepted the proposal. Our team then implemented a customized mitigation system:

    • Strategic Placement: The radon pipe and radon fan were strategically placed for optimal effectiveness in drawing radon gas from beneath the foundation and venting it safely outside the home.
    • Meticulous Sealing: All cracks and gaps identified during the inspection were meticulously sealed with a special sealant to prevent future radon gas intrusion. This included any cracks around the sump pump pit (if present).
    • Radon Pipe Installation: The radon pipe was meticulously installed throughout the basement, ensuring proper connection to the rest of the system and reaching the designated exit point outside the home.
    • Radon Fan Installation: A powerful yet energy-efficient radon fan was strategically placed within the system. This fan continuously draws radon gas from beneath the foundation and vents it safely outside the home.
    • Manometer Monitoring: A manometer was strategically placed within the system to provide a visual indication of the suction power created by the radon fan. This allows for ongoing monitoring and system optimization.
  3. Verification and Lasting Security: Once the installation was complete, we used a post-test kit to verify the system's effectiveness. The significantly reduced radon level confirmed a successful outcome, providing the homeowner with lasting peace of mind.

What's Unique About This Situation:

The project emphasizes the homeowner's proactive approach to health and the importance of clear communication throughout the process.

Client's Feedback:

The homeowner expressed immense satisfaction with Lawson Home Services' entire process. They were particularly impressed by the prompt response, clear communication, and professionalism of the installers. The installers not only ensured a successful mitigation but also left everything clean and tidy, minimizing disruption to their daily lives.

Duct cleaning in Hockessin, DE

If you have an HVAC system that uses ductwork to deliver the conditioned air, its going to get dirty even if you clean your filters regularly. Fine particles of dust, pollen, dirt and other pollutants collect inside the ductwork then are blown all throughout your house every time your heat or air conditioner kicks on. This is Delaware, where everyone seems to have allergies. You don't need dirty ductwork - Cough cough cough.... ACHOOOO!

Lawson Home Services offers the highest quality Platinum Duct Cleaning service which, unlike other duct cleaning contractors, includes cleaning your indoor and outdoor coils. The coils of your HVAC are like the gills of a fish. If they get clogged up the fish can't "breathe". That's why coil cleaning is essential for efficient operation of your HVAC. Dirty coils reduce the efficiency of your HVAC equipment, drive up utility costs, and can hasten the time day you experience that dreaded breakdown and you have to replace the entire system. And of course that always happens on the hottest or coldest day of the year, resulting in days of misery, and possible frozen pipes. You don't need that. 

So why not have Lawson's trusty duct cleaning technician visit your home and give your HVAC ductwork the TLC they deserve? Call us right away before our schedule gets tight.

Radon Mitigation System installed in Hockessin, Delaware

Lawson Home Services recently installed a Radon Mitigation System inside this Hockessin, Delaware home. 

Although dangerous levels of Radon inside a home occurs in all part of Delaware, the incidence is much higher in this region much more frequently than in others. of the state.

Radon gas seeps up out of the soil and can become concentrated inside your home where it breaks down into radioactive particles that you breathe. These particles carry a risk of causing cancer similar to that of cigarette smoking. Overall, exposure to radon gas inside is the second leading cause of lung cancers occurring in the United States. That's why it makes sense to have your home tested.

Lawson Home Services specialized in the installation of radon mitigation systems that can significantly reduce the concentration of radon gas inside your home. Call us today to see what you can do to protect yourself and those who live with you.

Air sealing to reduce the costs of heating/cooling your home

We often get called because even when people THINK they are happy with their overall comfort and energy bills in their home, they have a sneaking suspicion these things can be improved.

When we talked with Yvonne she was just that type of person.  She was comfortable and she didn’t think her bills were high but on inspection we showed her all the areas in her attic that were unnecessarily leaking air conditioned air from the home.  During her subsequent Delmarva Power Energy audit she had a blower door number of 4109CFM (cubic feet per minute).  That was the number of her air loss.

After her work was done we ran another blower door and found out we improved that number by 46%!

 

Even when you don’t THINK there is room for improvement there often is!
