Fix radon problems in your home yourself using "Protecting Your Home From Radon," Second Edition, D. L. Kladder with Dr. J. F. Burkhart and S. R. Jelinek. This do-it-yourself book is for consumers to install a radon mitigation system themselves or to become familiar with how a contractor will do the installation. This book provides instruction for the process of reducing radon for a variety of different foundation types.
The first edition of this book was written in 1993, to assist what was thought to be an occasional do-it-yourself homeowner. In reality, the number of individuals wanting to reduce radon levels themselves was much higher than anticipated.
The overwhelming success of the book led to the distribution of thousands of copies to individuals and libraries. Its popularity identified the need to address the process of hiring contractors and installing passive and active systems in new home construction.
This detailed manual describes the most common methods for reliably reducing radon in a home. Written in a non-technical format, the book includes step-by-step instructions and illustrations to guide homeowners through the radon mitigation process.
