Radon Gas toxicity has become a serious issue for residents in New Philadelphia. It is becoming worse because of shale fracking and other environmental changes. However, most homeowners in the area do not know about the threat radon gas poisoning poses and its cancer-causing properties. The gas is colorless, tasteless, has no smell, and proper education is deeply lacking.
According to the Ohio Department of Health, 1 in 2 Ohio homes has Radon levels that pose a large cancer risk over years of exposure. Whether the house is brand new or a century home, our local climate creates a higher exposure level to radon because of the amount of time we spend inside, especially during winter months where air circulation inside a home is drastically reduced because our windows remain closed.
Radon claims over 20,000 lives per year in the US alone and is the 2nd leading cause of Lung Cancer!

Radon gas formation and concentration is a natural process that occurs from the breakdown of earth's most abundant radioactive elements, thorium, and uranium, in rock, soil, and water.
The air pressure inside your home, usually lower than the air pressure outside, creates a vacuum effect known as pressure differentials, sucking radon up through foundation cracks and other openings directly into your home.
Even if you cannot visibly see the cracks or fissures in your foundation, it is necessary to get your home tested for Radon. Radon levels can be extremely high because of their unique capacity to permeate concrete.
The EPA has stated that "Any Radon exposure presents an increased chance of developing lung cancer later in life. The lower the radon level in your home, the lower your family's risk of developing lung cancer."
Radon testing is easy, accurate, and effective! An EPA-certified member of the Radon Eliminator team will come out to your home and check 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, foundation cracks, cavities inside walls, gaps around service pipes, construction joints, gaps in suspended floors, and sump pumps or different water supplies.
Once we identify your home's unique intrusion points, the team will deploy a sensitive testing device to continuously measure the impact of radon on every floor in your home for 52-72 hours. When we have the data back, one of our Mitigation and Testing Specialists will provide you a detailed report of findings and give you a service breakdown and price quote to Remove the radon problem.
Radon Testing is measured in PicoCuries per Liter; The EPA's stated action level is 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 completed, the Radon Eliminator Mitigation and Testing Specialist will go over the findings in your home and come up with potential mitigation procedures and prices if necessary.
Radon is suspected of causing at least 900 new lung cancer cases in Ohio each year. Radon Eliminator provides professional testing that will drastically reduce radon's potential life-threatening cancer impact in your home.

"Awesome experience to a bad situation (high levels of radon discovered on inspection). We (buyers) worked with Radon Eliminator and they worked with the seller and agent. John (our radon technician) was very professional and walked us through the entire process. Help decide on location of the system so it will work as normal but be aesthetically pleasing (tucked away in the corner away from view of the street or patio). They paid attention to the details like caulking surfaces, cleaned up job site, etc. All took less than a half day. Could not be more happy with them!"
