A radon mitigation (or radon reduction system) is the best way to significantly lower the radon gas levels in your home. Using pipes and a specialty fan, radon gas is gathered beneath the foundation and vented out into the air above your home, preventing radon accumulation inside your home. Utah Radon Services guarantees that your new radon gas level will be below 2.7 although in most homes we get it well below 2 pCi/L.

Radon Gas Information
An odorless, tasteless and colorless radioactive gas that comes from the decay of uranium in the soil, radon gas is found everywhere. Radon that is dispersed into the air outside is not a health risk. However, radon gas that accumulates inside your home is a health concern to you and your family. Exposure to radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, second only to smoking. In America alone, the Surgeon General estimates that more than 21,000 people die each year from radon related lung cancer.
