We live in house with a full basement that is built on a solid concrete pad. Never could imagine what could be done with it?
You usually have a ventilation system installed to remove the gas from your home. The dangerous part of Radon gas is having it accumulate in your home.

Oh so you mean it filters out the radon gas from the air?

I don't think it filters it but more like channels it out of the house.

Ok I tried looking some of it up but it seems hard to understand how it can get just radon out of the house if it is sitting on concrete like ours is.

Seems to always be a lot of emphasis on testing but I've never found much about solutions.

Radon naturally seeps out of the ground, it is more a geographic problem than anything. IMO Radon isn't worth dealing with, it is a heavy gas that collects at the lowest point of your home. Radon isn't treated, it is just vented out of the house (mitigated). Unless you are spending an inordinate amount of time laying on the floor of your basement, I don't think it has much of an impact... you are more likely to get cancer from a million other things before you get it from Radon.
