In response to growing demand and to advance the company’s mission to prevent exposure to cancer-causing radon gas, Protect Environmental expands operations to increase capacity in St. George and surrounding areas
Louisville, KY, July 21, 2023 – Today, Louisville-based Protect Environmental announced the launch of its second Utah-based operation to provide radon and vapor intrusion mitigation solutions to meet growing demands created by the increase in population density in St. George and surrounding communities.
Having served the Salt Lake City and greater Utah area since its founding in 2007, the company’s Salt Lake City operation, Radovent, was acquired by Protect Environmental in the spring of 2022. Since there are no certified radon professionals within 100 miles of St. George, the Salt Lake City operation has been providing services to the St. George community for years.
“St. George is my home, and this expansion represents a big win for my community to protect my neighbors from radon-induced lung cancer for future generations,” said Larry Warren, Protect Environmental mitigation technician. “Since radon doesn’t discriminate, dangerous levels can be found in new and old homes and buildings alike. I’m excited to be able to protect more people in my St. George community from this invisible, but deadly, gas.”
The company will immediately commence operations supporting the St. George community, hosting a community town hall meeting with real estate agents and home inspectors on July 21, 2023.
“Some of the highest indoor radon levels on record have been found in the Southwest region of Utah, which is why we have traveled hundreds of miles to provide vital life-saving mitigation services to the St. George community. Our long-time employee, Larry Warren, calls St. George home and will now provide boots-on-the-ground service in the area full-time,” said Jeremy Porter, director of market operations for Protect Environmental. “This expansion will allow us to serve this region every day of the week and increase our capacity to protect those living in St. George from exposure to radon gas.”
