Cuyahoga Falls OH Radon Mitigation & Testing – 330-267-9550
What’s Radon & Why Does it Matter?
Radon is a radioactive gas that is naturally emitted by certain soils and rocks. In Ohio, radon is often found in higher concentrations because of the shale and granite deposits that run throughout the state. When a home is built atop these deposits, the radon gas will slowly accumulate in enclosed areas…like basements. Generally, radon levels are highest in a basement and decrease in concentration as we test the first and second levels of a home. Radon has been linked to lung cancer in over 25,000 people annually worldwide, and is the second leading cause of lung cancer behind smoking! Now, we aren’t scientists so we won’t get too much into the “how and why”, but a little research goes a long way. Read what the EPA and National Cancer Institute have to say about it.
Did Your Home in Cuyahoga Falls Test High For Radon During a Home Inspection?
Most of our customers are in the process of selling their home, and get the “dreaded news” from their real estate agent, “You have Radon and the buyers want you to pay to fix it!” Our typical customer first asks their agent what the heck it’s going to cost and if they have any referrals. Some customers decide to hire the referral, knowing that they come recommended from someone in the industry. Others turn to Google and start reading! A few will simply hire the first company they call, while others price-shop. Very few are really concerned with the quality of the work, and EVERYONE asks the SAME THING:
“Can you guarantee the level will be reduced to a number our buyers will find acceptable?”
Our answer is always “Yes!” We offer a guarantee that all radon mitigation projects in Cuyahoga Falls will result in a 48-hour radon test average of less than 4.0 pCi/L, which is what the EPA considers the “action level”, or point at which they highly recommend radon levels be mitigated. We administer this test after completing our installation, and cover any further costs involved in getting that level below 4.0 pCi/L. You will not pay a dime more than quoted when working with Akron Radon.
The next question we hear from most sellers is:

We’ll do everything we can to get the work done quickly and efficiently as we know home-sellers have more important things to worry about!
