Installing a radon mitigation system in a home that has high radon levels, will significantly reduce radon exposure. Also referred to as radon reduction systems or radon removal systems, these are installed using pipes that collect the radon gas from beneath the foundation and vent it out into the atmosphere using a special fan – reducing the amount of radon that ever enters the home in the first place.  In fact we guarantee to get your home to 2.7 or below and many cases we get it to under a 1.0. Our radon reduction systems come with a lifetime warranty so you know you are getting a quality solution that will last the life of your home.

What is Radon Gas and Why is it a Concern?

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that comes from the decay of Uranium in the soil. Much of the radon gas produced enters the atmosphere and is harmless, but the accumulation of this odorless, colorless, and tasteless gas in your home is a concern for your family’s health.

According to the Surgeon General, more than 21,ooo Americans die each year from lung cancer that is related to radon – in fact it is the second leading cause of lung cancer overall.
