Radon gas is a Major Health Issue in Ohio.
Radon Gas is a serious issue for residents of the Buckeye State, which finds itself directly in the middle of the Radon Belt stretching from the Great Plains all the way to Upper New York State. In fact, Every Ohio County has homes that have registered lethal levels of Radon!
Any home in the state could potentially have a Radon problem, and the homeowners in Beachwood are no exception. Unfortunately, most local homeowners don't know about radon toxicity and its cancer-causing properties because radon is odorless, transparent, and has no taste. To make matters worse, health education about it is seriously lacking.
According to the Ohio Department of Health, one in two Ohio homes has Radon levels that pose a large cancer risk over numerous years of exposure. Whether the house is a century home or brand new, Ohio's climate creates a greater exposure level to radon gas due to the amount of time we spend indoors during our cold winter months.
Radon gas is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer and claims over 20,000 lives per year in the US alone!

Radon gas formation, concentration, and release into the environment is a natural process that occurs from the breakdown of thorium and uranium.
The air pressure differences inside your home versus outside begin to create a vacuum effect known as pressure differentials, pulling radon gas up into your home through foundation cracks and various other openings.
Even if you cannot see cracks in your foundation, it is still necessary to get your home tested for Radon. Radon levels can be dangerously high because the radioactive properties allow the gas to permeate concrete.
The EPA has given us a simple solution, "Any Radon exposure creates an increased probability of lung cancer. The lower the radon level in your home, the lower your family's risk of Lung Cancer."
Radon testing for a residence is simple, accurate, and efficient! Our protocols have been designed to assure increased dependability and accuracy during testing.
An EPA licensed member of the Radon Eliminator team will examine your home for 7 possible Radon Gas intrusion points in your basement or 1st floor if you have a slab floor.
These 7 intrusion points come in the form of cracks in walls, foundation cracks, construction joints, cavities inside walls, gaps around service pipes, gaps in suspended floors, crawlspaces, and sump pumps or water supply sources.
Once we identify your home's unique intrusion points, our team member will deploy a specialized Radon Testing device that can continuously measure the impact of radon in your home.
After a 52-72 hour period has elapsed, we will come back to see why your test results show. When the results are quantified, our Radon Testing and Mitigation Specialist will provide you a thorough report of their findings that shows your home's radon gas levels hour by hour and what you can do next to Mitigate any potential problem.
Radon Testing in the US is measured in PicoCuries per Liter, which accurately shows the level of radioactivity within your home; The EPA recommends that a mitigation system be installed on any home recording radon levels between 2-4pCi/L and above. The World Health Organization recommends that action is taken on any home producing radon levels at or above 2.7 pCi/L.
Once your test is finished, a Radon Eliminator Testing and Mitigation Specialist will explain the determined findings from your home and discuss possible mitigation procedures and the cost of installation.
There are 7,700 new Lung Cancer cases each year occurring in Ohio alone. Radon is estimated to cause at least 900 of them.
Licensed testing by Radon Eliminator will give you the opportunity to understand the impact of radon in your home and help reduce the life-threatening Lung Cancer influence.

Able to get out the same week to install system. Very quick installation, took about 2 hours total. System isn?t bulky and doesn?t look too bad on the side of the house. Sent me the results of the post install test the same day the detector was picked up. They were also $100-200 cheaper than the other company I spoke to.
