RadonSeal concrete sealer penetrates deep inside concrete, reacts with chemicals harmful to the concrete, expands into even microscopic pores, and hardens into a non-reactive, insoluble mineral. The result is a denser concrete that is permanently sealed against radon gas, water seepage, and water vapor. Unlike concrete paints, RadonSeal does not color the concrete and leaves no film that could peel.
This is the most advanced radon mitigation method, yet affordable and user-friendly. The resulting radon reduction is not limited by the size of mechanical equipment, the permeability of soil, or fluctuating moisture in the soil. Unlike mechanical mitigation methods, it does not depend on the reliability of hardware or the grid. The seal cannot deteriorate over time and is permanent!
RadonSeal is sprayed on bare, unpainted concrete by a common garden sprayer. The application is much faster than painting the concrete and safe. There are no noxious VOC fumes. RadonSeal is an environment-friendly, water-based sealer - nonflammable, non-toxic, and non-hazardous. It works on poured concrete or concrete blocks and mortar, basement floors and walls, foundation slabs, even on wet or leaking surfaces.
Compared to fan-based radon mitigation systems, RadonSeal saves you hundreds of dollars on the initial cost and continues to deliver savings every year:
|Typical Savings on Radon Mitigation|
|Method||Mechanical Mitigation||RadonSeal Mitigation||Savings|
|Installation Cost||EPA: $ 1,200||approx. $ 500||$ 700|
|$ 0/year||$ 150/year|
|Operating Expenses over 10 years||aver. $ 1,500||$ 0||$ 1,500|
|10-Year Savings to the Homeowner||$ 2,200|

At a cost comparable to painting the concrete, RadonSeal delivers much more than radon remediation:
There is no "safe" radon level! (EPA) Radon gas decays into minute radioactive particles, which get trapped in our lungs. It is the leading cause of lung cancer deaths among non-smokers and the second leading cause among smokers. (The Surgeon General) Radon in homes causes about 21,000 lung cancer deaths in the U.S. each year.
The danger is proportional to radon concentration: Reducing the radon level in home by 50% (or 90%) lowers the cancer risk to the family by 50% (or 90%). Radon mitigation is particularly important for families with children. Whatever your current radon level, reduce it to a minimum. Provide a healthy home to your family!
After applying RadonSeal, make sure to seal any openings, gaps, or cracks. Unlike any other radon reduction system, RadonSeal seals the concrete and keeps on working permanently. It is backed up by a lifetime guarantee.
