Radon is considered a “silent killer” and can affect the air that we breathe. Over 20,000 Americans die of radon-related lung cancer each year. Below are a few serious side effects that may be noticed after radon reaches dangerous levels in your home.

  • Shortness of breath
  • Wheezing
  • Loss of appetite
  • Frequent infections like bronchitis

Most homes test for radon only when it becomes a noticeable issue, however, you should be testing for radon periodically to ensure the air you breathe is always safe. Your local radon testing & mitigation contractor in Des Moines will be able to detect such issues and offer you a free radon estimate.

Expert Radon Mitigation Service in Des Moines, IA

After making a radon test appointment with your local Des Moines contractor, we will determine if the level of radon detected is high enough to proceed with the process, which would be between 3-5pCi/L. Assuming that is the case, our radon mitigation solutions are designed to bring the radon down to a healthier level. One option is to eliminate radon by using the soil suction method. This method draws the radon from below the basement or crawl space floor and pushes it out into the outside air. Below are a few of our other systems and methods for removing radon.

  • Sealing
  • House/room pressurization
  • Heat recovery ventilation
  • Natural ventilation
