A centralized resource hub to review, chat, and discuss the latest news relating to Vapor Mitigation, Methane Mitigation, Waterproofing, Water Features, Golf, Fluid Mechanics, Heat Transfer, and Thermodynamics.
Methane Gas Hazard
Environmental drilling conducted to categorize the Methane Zone Level of a property to establish the methane Vapor Mitigation Requirements.
Prepared by a license Professional engineer, Gas Mitigation Plans are prepared to outline the design specifications that are required by the LADBS, DTSC, OCFA or any other local building code.
Specialty contractors are required to installed SubSlab Depressurization systems and Vapor Gas Barriers to ensure that contaminated Gases in Soils do not migrate into structures. Passive or Active Vapor Intrusion Gas Mitigation Systems may be implanted depending on the extent of Environmental risks.
Methane Mitigation Construction
Vapor Gas Mitigation Benefits
Vapor Intrusion Mitigation Systems are implemented to prevent the Migration of Methane Gas and other contaminates from entering structures.
Sway Features’ Designs ensure that the risk of combustible gases, carcinogens, and other harmful gasses are mitigated, creating a safe living and working environment. Our methane testing and vapor gas mitigation are designed using proven and modern methods of Methane Mitigation Design and Methane Mitigation Construction. We always provide the highest quality of methane mitigation.
DTSC & EPA Vapor Intrusion Mitigation Advisory Mitigate Indoor Air Exposure
Vapor Gas Mitigation System requirements are regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC). These regularity agencies have established vapor gas mitigation requirements based on the contamination levels that are present for a property. Sway Features Design and Construction Teams implement the require vapor gas mitigation components based on the Vapor intrusion Screening Level that is established.
LADBS Methane Mitigation Process
The Los Angeles Department of Building and safety has established Methane Mitigation requirements for properties that are located within the Methane Zone. These zones require methane testing to ensure compliance and safety. These measures are required to prevent the accumulation of combustible hazard methane gas from migrating into structures. There are three steps to the LADBS Vapor Mitigation process | LADBS Methane Soil Test:
