Radon gas presents many unique challenges.
Indoor Radon Gas toxicity is a serious issue for residents of the Buckeye State, which finds itself directly in the middle of the Radon Belt that stretches from New York State all the way into the Great Plains. In fact, lethal levels of Radon have been found in every Ohio county! Any home in the state could have a Radon problem, and the 50,000+ homeowners in Elyria are no exception. Unfortunately, most local homeowners don't know about the severity of radon gas toxicity and its cancer-causing properties because radon is odorless, colorless, and proper education is severely lacking. According to the Ohio Department of Health, one in two Ohio homes has Radon levels that pose a large cancer risk over several years of continued exposure. Whether the house is old or newly constructed, our local climate creates a greater exposure level to radon gas due to the amount of time indoors. Radon gas is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer and claims over 20,000 lives per year in the US alone! Get a Discounted Radon Test to determine your level of exposure.

Radon can enter your Elyria house in a variety of ways.
Radon gas formation and concentration is a common process resulting from the breakdown of thorium and uranium in soil, rock, and water. The air pressure differences inside your home versus outside causes a vacuum effect is known as pressure differentials, pulling radon into your home through foundation cracks and other openings. Even if you cannot visibly see cracks in your foundation, getting your home tested for Radon is still necessary. Radon levels can be dangerously high because their radioactive properties allow the gas to seep through concrete. The EPA states it plainly, "Any radon exposure creates a higher probability of lung cancer. The lower the radon level in your home, the lower your family's risk of lung cancer."
An EPA Licensed Professional should conduct radon Testing.
Radon testing for a residence is simple and accurate! Our protocols have been designed to assure increased dependability and confidence in the test results. An EPA licensed member of the Radon Eliminator team will come to your house to examine the 7 possible intrusion points in your basement or 1st floor if you have a slab floor. These 7 intrusion points come in the forms of construction joints, cracks in walls, foundation cracks, cavities inside walls, gaps in suspended floors, crawlspaces, gaps around service pipes, and sump pumps or water supplies. Once we identify your home's unique intrusion points, our team member will set up a specialized Radon Testing device that will continuously measure the impact of radon on your home. After a 48-72 hour period has elapsed, we will come back to collect the measurement results. Once the results are quantified, our Radon Testing and Mitigation Specialist will provide you a complete report of their findings showing the hour-by-hour peaks and valleys in your home's radon gas levels and what you can do next to Mitigate any potential problem.
What standard are Radon Levels measured by?
Radon Testing in the US is measured in PicoCuries per Liter; The EPA recommends taking action on any home registering radon levels between 2-4pCi/L and above. The World Health Organization recommends taking action on any home-producing radon levels at or above 2.7 pCi/L. Once your test is complete, a Radon Eliminator Testing and Mitigation Specialist will show and explain the determined findings in your home and discuss potential mitigation procedures if needed.
