When it comes to indoor air quality, there are numerous threats. Mold, for example, only requires moisture and an organic material to feed on in order to grow. The installation of drain tile, LeafGuard® gutters, or water sealing a basement can prevent growth. A second threat to indoor air quality is radon. This odorless gas is a result of decaying uranium within the earth which naturally works its way to the surface. Adverse risks can be alleviated through the installation of a sub-slab depressurization system. If you have lower pressure below your floor, the air from your home will go down into your floor rather than air from the soil coming into your home.
