Do you conduct radon testing?

No. We are strictly a radon mitigation company but work with radon testers in the area to ensure safe readings for our clients. Homeowners can also purchase DIY radon tests from many home supply stores. Some home kits instruct you to mail the completed test to the lab for a fee. Results are then calculated and mailed back to you.

Is there a safe level of radon?

No. The only safe level of radon gas is 0 pCi/L. (pCi/L is measurement of radioactivity in the air.) Outdoor levels of radon are approximately 0.4 pCi/L. EPA advised Take Action Level is 4.0 pCi/L for homes.

Does State of Illinois law require homeowners to test their home for radon?

No. The US Surgeon General and EPA strongly advise every homeowner test their home for radon gas.

Why test my home for radon?

The US Surgeon General recommends ALL homes be tested for radon gas. It’s a simple way to ensure a healthier home environment for you and your family. Radon is measured in picocuries per liter of air (pCi/L), a measurement of radioactivity. You can either hire a State Licensed radon testing professional or buy a Do It Yourself home test kit from any home supply stores. One should not assume their neighbor’s radon level is the same as their home. Levels vary from home to home. Protect your family from the risk of radon exposure. Give yourself peace of mind and test your home today!

How do you know if you need radon mitigation?

It is to everyone’s benefit to protect themselves from radon gas exposure. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer worldwide. The Environmental Protection Agency has set the action level for mitigation at 4.0 pCi/L. Most scientists agree that the risk of death for radon at 4 pCi/L is approximately 1 in 100. At a 4.0 pCi/L level, radon carries approximately 1000 times the risk of death compared with any other EPA carcinogen. Lung cancer risk rises 16% per 2.7 pCi/L. Radon Act 51 passed by Congress set the outdoor level of radon gas (0.4 pCi/L) as the target radon level for indoor radon levels although there is no safe level of radon exposure. If you are buying a home, the sellers are required by law to disclose existing radon levels at or above 4.0 pCi/L to the prospective buyer. An educated consumer will seek a radon test during the inspection process and mitigate if level tests at or above 4.0 pCi/L.
