Radon Mitigation 

Radon mitigation is a way of saying radon removal. Yes, it is possible to remove this cancer-causing gas from the living space of your home. 

Radon mitigation systems are designed to reduce high concentration levels of radon insides homes and building, making them a safe place for people to live without the risk of contracting radon-induced lung cancer. 

Having a radon mitigation system installed by a professional is very important to ensure that it is done correctly and that the levels of gas have indeed dropped once the installation is complete. 

It's always important to ask to see license information from the company you wish to install your system. The company and technicians need to be licensed with The Ohio Department of Health to make sure that all rules and regulations are followed when installing the removal system. 

Another important factor to check when choosing a mitigation company is whether or not they provide post-mitigation radon testing.

Post-Testing is extremely important to ensure that the system was installed properly and that the radon levels in your home have been reduced below the EPA recommended action level of 4.0 piC/L.

If you find out that post-testing is not included in the installation process, you may want to consider hiring another company.
