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.
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.
