Can Radon level in house be reduced from 2 pCi/L to below?

Can Radon level in house be reduced from 2 pCi/L to below? How much it can be reduced with Sub-Slab Suction ? There is pipe I think installed already. Do we need only buy vent fan ? How much it can reduce from 2 pCi/L?
Many thanks for all replies

First of all, repeat the test, with a long-term test kit and an approved testing company.

The EPA doesn't recommend remediation unless the level is 4 pico Curies / L or above.

So far we have lived in house with Radon level below 1 pCi/L. So, we would like to lower 2 pCi/L to 1 or below. Is it possible ? anybody did it? I find conflicting info online. many thanks again

Probably, but it is unlikely anyone will guarantee the results of the work.

An under-slab system might get it that far down.
