Radon gas mitigation is an intricate science dedicated to saving lives and improving the comfort and livability of your very own home. Iowa is no exception. Radon gas can easily go unnoticed. In fact, it will remain unnoticed until a radon test is performed. The gas is invisible, odorless, tasteless, and deadly. Radon is actually the second leading cause of lung cancer, second only to smoking.
Although Iowa, the agricultural hub in the U.S., may be accruing an annual $10 billion in crops and livestock, it is also harboring high levels of radon gas.
For example, about 43 percent of homes in Des Moines County maintain a radon level above the danger zone instated by the Environmental Protection Agency of about 4.0 pCi/L. The average amount of radon gas in Des Moines County is actually about 4.6 pCi/L, which nearly quadruples the national average coming in at 1.3 pCi/L.
Radon mitigation for your Iowa home
If you want the radon levels checked in your Iowa home, contact one of our trusted and certified radon mitigators. They will not only provide you with the numbers but also the solutions to bring your radon level to a healthier level. The lower your level is, the safer you can feel. Even presumably low amounts of radon gas can still cause the same side effects that large amounts of radon can cause. That's why it's best to take the advice from an expert. So whether your home has a high or low radon level, it's safest to get your home mitigated.
Our radon experts work with airborne & waterborne radon testing & mitigation technologies, as well as custom engineered water treatment and well system technologies.

Peace of mind
Although no homeowner wants to increase cancer risks for family members, many people neglect to test their homes for radon, an invisible, odorless, cancer-causing gas that emanates from soil and rocks. Contacting a radon mitigation specialist to perform a radon test, or conducting your own test with a DIY radon test kit is the first step in protecting your family from hazardous levels of radon gas.

Comment: We recently had our radon level tested in our home. It came back very high. We are on a well system for our water and would like to have our water tested for radon. We have had the water tested for coliform and nitrates which always comes back fine. We are in the process of putting in a mitigation system for the house. How do we test the water for radon?

Comment: Others in the neighborhood have mitigation system set up. We bought house a year ago and don't know if it was ever tested before. My girls live there and want to make sure they are not being exposed
