bringing healthier, comfortable air into homes in Kansas: Radon, Mold, Insulation, Crawlspace
TOPEKA, MANHATTAN, HOLTON, LAWRENCE, CLAY CENTER, JUNCTION CITY and surrounding farm communities.
We are all in “zone 1” meaning high concentrations of radon are very common.
Radon is a radioactive, colorless, odorless gas originating from uranium and is very common in Kansas! In high concentrations in our homes and businesses it has been proven to damage the lining of our lungs and lead to lung cancer. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. In fact the Surgeon General recommends that all homes be tested. The only way to know if your home has high levels is to test. We place a Continuous Radon Monitor (CRM) for a minimum of 48 hours in the lowest lived in level of your home or business. You will receive a printout of the results that include your current radon average as well as your hourly readings. The mitigation action level from the EPA is 4pCi/l. WHO sets the action level at 2.7pCi/l.
So you found out you have high radon levels in your home or business. What now? Panic? Run for the hills? Light a match? Have no fear. Radon mitigation is here. Mitigation will remove excess radon from your home in as little as 24 hours. Mitigation done RIGHT.
We pride ourselves in not being “alarmists.” We do low cost visual inspections for property owners with air testing available for additional cost.
