Radon is a Serious Health Issue
Radon Gas toxicity is a serious issue for residents of the Buckeye State, which is directly in the center of the Radon Belt stretching from Upper New York State all the way through Great Plains, in fact, lethal levels of Radon have been found in every Ohio county!
With so many young families, new developments, and housing projects like Eaton Estates and Lake Forest going up in the area, it is becoming more important than ever to check your home for high radon levels.
Any home in the area could have a Radon problem, and the homeowners in Northfield are no exception. Unfortunately, many homeowners don't know about the cancer-causing properties of radon because radon is odorless, transparent, and tasteless. To make matters worse, proper education is seriously lacking.
According to the Ohio Department of Health, one in two Ohio homes has Radon levels that pose a serious cancer risk over numerous years of continued exposure. Whether the house is older or just built, Ohio's climate creates a greater exposure level to radon gas due to the amount of time we spend indoors during our winter months.
Radon gas is the 2nd leading cause of Lung Cancer and claims over 20,000 lives per year in the US alone! This is a frightening statistic.

Radon gas production and concentration is a natural process that occurs from the breakdown of thorium and uranium. The air pressure variances inside your home versus outside creates a vacuum effect known as pressure differentials, drawing radon into your home up through foundation cracks and various other openings. Even if you cannot see cracks in your foundation, getting your home tested for Radon is still necessary. Radon levels can be dangerously high because their radioactive properties enable the gas to seep through concrete.
The EPA's warning states it plainly, "Any Radon exposure means 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 is simple, accurate, and efficient! Our testing protocols have been designed for increased dependability and accuracy during testing.
An EPA licensed member of the Radon Eliminator team will come to your house to examine the 7 possible invasion points of Radon in your basement or 1st floor if you have a slab floor. These 7 invasion points where the gas enters come in the form of cracks in walls, foundation cracks, cavities inside walls, gaps in suspended floors, crawlspaces, construction joints, gaps around service pipes, and sump pumps or water supply sources.
When we learn your home's unique invasion points, our team member will set up a specialized Radon Testing device that will continuously measure the levels of radon in your home. After a 52-72 hour period has elapsed, we will come back to collect the data results. Once the results are understood, our Radon Testing and Mitigation Specialist will provide you a complete report of their findings showing hour-by-hour radon gas levels in your home and what you can 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 registering radon levels between 2-4pCi/L and higher. 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 explain the determined findings in your home and discuss possible mitigation procedures and the cost of installation.
Of the 7,700 new lung cancer cases each year in Ohio, Radon gas is believed to cause at least 900 of them. Licensed testing by Radon Eliminator is critical to reducing the life-threatening Lung Cancer influence of radon in your home.

"I never thought that we were a radon impacted home. We lived here for 16 years prior to accidentally discovering this issue. I called Radon Eliminator after some research on-line. Cedric called me back same day and had official testing to our home hours later. Reports were issued same day as testing was completed both prior and post mitigation. Cedric and the installation team were prompt, professional, and always answered all of our questions. They all walked us through the process from start to finish and did a great job. Our levels fell from 32 to 1.8 in a matter of days. Only 5 days lapsed from discovering the problem, confirming our radon level with EPA certified test, installation and resolution of the issue. We are all resting much better with this new peace of mind."
