Indoor Radon Gas toxicity has become a serious issue for the Buckeye State and especially for Trumbull County residents and it is getting worse because of shale fracking.
Unfortunately, most homeowners in the area don't know about the danger of radon gas poisoning and its cancer-causing properties because the gas is invisible, odorless, and proper education is sorely lacking.
According to the Ohio Department of Health, 50% of Ohio homes have Radon levels that pose a large cancer risk over years of exposure. It doesn't matter if the house is older or band new; 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.
Radon is the 2nd leading cause of Lung Cancer and claims over 20,000 lives per year in the US alone!

Radon gas formation and concentration is a normal process that occurs from the breakdown of thorium and uranium in rock, soil, and water.
The air pressure inside your home, usually lower than the air pressure outside, causes a large vacuum effect known as pressure differentials, pulling 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 its unique capacity to permeate concrete. The EPA says, "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 lung cancer."
Radon testing is easy 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 construction joints, foundation cracks, cracks in walls, gaps in suspended floors, crawlspaces, cavities inside walls, gaps around service pipes, and sump pumps or different water supplies.
Once we identify your home's unique intrusion points, our team will use a sensitive testing device to measure the impact of radon on every floor in your home.
Once we have the data back, one of our Mitigation and Testing Specialists will provide you a complete report of findings and what you can do next to remove any potential problem.
Radon Testing is measured in PicoCuries per Liter; The EPA recommends that action be taken on any home registering radon levels between 2-4pCi/L and above.
The World Health Organization recommends that action be taken on any home producing radon levels at or above 3 pCi/L.
Once your test is finished, the Radon Eliminator Mitigation and Testing Specialist will go over the determined findings in your home and discuss potential mitigation procedures and costs if necessary.
There are about 7,700 new lung cancer cases each year that occur in Ohio. Radon is suspected of causing at least 900 of them.
Professional testing by Radon Eliminator will drastically reduce the life-threatening Cancer impact of radon in your home.

Very customer oriented. They had installed a lid that I didn't like and they gladly reinstalled a different lid. They took extra care in cleaning up, and came when expected. Very nice and patient in explaining everything. They did a great job.
