Potomac MD Volatile Organic Compound Removal

Vapor intrusion occurs when soil gas migrates through subsurface soils into buildings above it. In more severe cases, these soil gas vapors can build up in Potomac MD homes and reach levels that create near-term dangers to the occupants of those buildings. Those dangers include the potential for explosions and for health problems. Usually, the levels remain low and may not even be detectable. In such cases, the main concern is whether the level is enough to create a danger of chronic health problems over the long term. In all cases, remediation steps involving soil suction equipment will be necessary.

Radon and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC's)
In Potomac Maryland, vapor intrusion as it relates to radon has been a well-known potential cause of cancer for over three decades. Radon is a product of radium which itself is a product of uranium. Radon is a gas and can move into the interiors of Potomac MD buildings. In recent years, volatile organic compounds (VOC's) have been identified as risks as well. Volatile organic compounds VOC's include trichloroethylene, tetrachloroethylene, and PERC.

Experts believe that the primary pathways for vapor intrusion are the subsurface in basements, crawlspaces as well as via first floor slabs on grade. Factors that can affect the migration of volatile organic compounds (VOC's) and other gases include the fact that some Potomac Maryland buildings have better insulation than others and there is some variation in the vacuum and flow produced by different HVAC systems. Vapor Intrusion Remediation: Abatement will involve the use of a sub slab depressurization system.

These remediation systems are designed for extraction and elimination of volatile organic compounds (VOC) and other vapors before they can migrate into the Potomac MD dwelling. The number of controls and sensors that come with a sub slab depressurization system vary depending on the danger associated with the vapors. The goal of sub slab depressurization is mitigation by creating a vacuum beneath the slab. This mitigation method allows the volatile organic compounds (VOC's) and other vapors to be drawn into the system. The vapors can then be discharged in a safe location as the final step in remediation.

One or two of these mitigation systems will be sufficient for the abatement of most Potomac Maryland homes and small office buildings. However, a larger facility such as a factory or warehouse may require more mitigation systems to adequately remediate the structure. Since volatile organic compounds (VOC's) occur throughout the soil and can occur in the aquifer, sub slab depressurization involves creating a vacuum under the whole slab for effective remediation. This is not necessary for radon mitigation.

A mitigation system only needs to affect the primary pathways for vapor intrusion. The design of each sub slab depressurization system has to be customized for the unique features of each Potomac MD site. In practice, sub slab depressurization systems used for abatement consist of networks of pipes that go through slabs and into underlying soil. These networks of pipes are attached to special soil suction blowers used for the extraction of soil gas like volatile organic compounds VOC's and other vapors. They enable the collection of these gases so that they can be discharged elsewhere.
