As a basement renovation company, one factor we will never overlook in basement remodel is basement safety. The homeowners’ protection is of paramount importance when we are planning basement renovations. Safety guidelines that are incorporated in the local building laws would also be followed to avoid unnecessary revisions.
At best Renos, we will incorporate several basement safety measures including the following measures:
Radon Sealing and Protection
Radon is a silent, odorless, tasteless and hazardous radioactive gas that may silently enter your home and put you at risk without you knowing it. Radon is the resultant product of decaying uranium found in the earth’s crust. Radon enters the home through cracks in the walls, small holes and crack in the foundation, or through sump openings, drains or utility line openings. Once radon enters through the basement, it can spread quickly to other living spaces of your home. Thus, put you and your family’s health in danger of poisoning.
In fact, breathing in air containing radon for a long period of time has been diagnosed to be the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. That’s why the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recommends that each home be tested for radon. Best Renos will test your basement for radon and if high level of radon gas is found in your home, we can help install a custom radon mitigation system to return the radon gas to a safe level.
