Unfortunately no. Radon comes from the natural decay of uranium or thorium. It accumulates in mines and certain houses (made of very dense stone) in areas like Cornwall in England. www.cornwall.gov.uk...
Radon is what you get in the morning and its gone when the sun hits it , its a background source
Alpha radiation it will mostly shield, and Beta (being stopped by thin aluminum) isn’t much of problem anyway providing it isn’t ingested, and consequently fired into skin cells at point blank range (as happens to anyone whose body has inhaled-ingest depletive uranium fired at Iraqis).
Partical eccellerator, good luck in your quest and I think plastic or polly shields beta.
My point being to save a normal house, from long-term contamination, by engineering where particles settles-accumulates.
Build a lead lined house and no worries, just make it about 2.5 feet thick .
The first deactivation process that I am aware of that was developed for the expressed purpose of permanently deactivating radioactivity in nuclear materials. The Baumgartner process was accomplished and demonstrated in early 1964. Baumgartner process demonstrated that C60 gamma radiation could be reduced to background radiation levels. With an additional step in the Baumgartner process, the radioactivity was reduced to a nil radiation level. This process and many other processes that modifies an isotope half-life are designated Nuclear Half-life Modification Technology.
The microbes were forced to survive on the leftovers that result when radioactivity from uranium, thorium and potassium in the native rock breaks down molecules of water, prompting a sequence of chemical reactions that produce hydrogen peroxide, break down pyrite, and form sulfates.
