Most people think of radon as a health hazard, and for good reason. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among nonsmokers in the United States. While radon gas can contaminate any type of building, the home is where people are exposed to it more often and for the longest periods of time. Because radon is colorless, odorless, and otherwise undetectable by the unaided senses, testing and monitoring using specialized equipment are critical.
But what many people don’t know is that there are ways to mitigate (reduce) their levels of radon. Radon mitigation systems can be installed in any type of structure and are commonly used in homes.
If you are concerned about radon exposure, the first step is to test your home or business for radon gas. Once you know your radon levels, you can decide whether or not to install a radon mitigation system. The EPA’s radon action level is 4 pCi/L or more.
When installing your radon mitigation system, our radon mitigation specialists will work 1-on-1 with you through the entire process. After we install the mitigation system, we’ll provide a follow-up radon test to ensure your property has been properly mitigated for radon.
Common Questions About Radon Mitigation
Why Is Radon Mitigation Important?
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that can be found in all 50 states; radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among nonsmokers in the United States and accounts for about 21,000 deaths each year. It comes from the decay of uranium in rocks, soil, and water and gets into the air we breathe. The EPA recommends radon mitigation for any level of contamination that exceeds 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L).

The cost of radon mitigation depends on the size and type of structure, as well as the specific mitigation system.
