The chapter covers strategies that can be used to effectively reduce elevated radon levels in buildings. It provides an overview in diagnosing radon problems and in selecting radon control strategies both in existing structures and in new construction. It covers methods for diagnosing radon problems and detailed descriptions of several radon control strategies: soil depressurization, sealing of radon entry routes, building pressurization, removing sources of radon, ventilation, air cleaning, and removing radon from water. It concludes with a summary of radon control strategies with typical ranges of radon reduction, contractor installation costs, and operating costs; information on post-installation testing; and long-term maintenance of radon control systems.
