Radon Gas is a Real Issue for Ohio Residents.
Radon Gas toxicity is a pervasive issue for residents of Ohio. We find ourselves in the middle of what has been termed the "Radon Belt," stretching from New York State all the way through the Great Plains. In fact, lethal levels of Radon have been discovered by Radon Testing in every Ohio county! Any home in the state could have a Radon problem, and residents of Mayfield Heights are no exception.
Sadly, most local homeowners don't know about the danger associated with radon gas toxicity and its cancer-causing properties because radon is odorless, invisible, tasteless. To make matters worse, proper education is lacking.
Radon gas is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer and claims over 20,000 lives per year in the US alone! According to the Ohio Department of Health, 50% of Ohio's homes have Radon levels that pose a large cancer risk over years of continued exposure. Whether the house is older or brand new makes no difference; Ohio's climate causes a greater exposure level to radon gas due to the amount of time we spend inside, especially during the cold winter months.

Radon gas production, concentration, and dispersion is a natural process occurring from the breakdown of thorium and uranium in rock, soil, and water. Air pressure differences inside your home versus outside cause a vacuum effect known as pressure differentials. This effect pulls radon into your home through foundation cracks and various other openings.
Even if you cannot visibly identify cracks in your foundation, getting your home tested for Radon is still imperative. Radon levels can be dangerously high because their radioactive properties enable the gas to permeate concrete.
The EPA puts it plainly, "Any long-term 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 home residence is simple, accurate, and efficient!
Our EPA-guided protocols have been designed to assure superior dependability and accuracy during the testing process.
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 cracks in walls, construction joints, cavities inside walls, gaps in suspended floors, foundation cracks, crawlspaces, gaps around service pipes, and sump pumps or water supply sources.
Once we discover your home's intrusion points, our team member will set up a specialized Radon Testing device that will continuously monitor and measure the impact of radon in your home. After a 52-72 hour period has elapsed, we will come back to collect the testing data.
Once the results are gathered from the testing device, our Radon Testing and Mitigation Specialist will provide you a detailed report of their findings that provide hour-by-hour measurements of your home's radon gas levels and what to do next to Mitigate any potential problem.
Radon Testing in the US is measured in PicoCuries per Liter; The EPA recommends that action is taken 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 completed, the Radon Eliminator Testing and Mitigation Specialist will explain the determined findings in your home and discuss possible mitigation procedures, the route we would run the system, and the cost of the project.
There are roughly 7,700 new lung cancer cases each year occurring in Ohio alone. Radon is believed to cause at least 900 of them.
