  • Adherence to approved AARST standards ensure that your radon project is handled professionally and scientifically that addresses the health hazards presented by Radon gas.
  • Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. It is estimated that radon causes between 3% to 14% of all lung cancers, and over 20,000 cancer deaths a year. Radon is a colorless odorless gas that produces alpha particles as it decays.

Mitigating home radon levels is a multidisciplinary issue requiring the correct team of individuals to ensure the lowest level of disturbance to the property while reducing radon levels.

Homes and workplaces can all be affected by Radon intrusion into occupied areas. Radon is a radioactive gas that has been found in structures all over the United States. It comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rocks, and water, and gets into the air you breathe. Radon typically moves up through the ground to the air above, and into your structures through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Radon can also enter your home through well water. Your home can trap radon inside.

Nearly one out of every 15 homes in the United States is estimated to have an elevated radon level (4 pCi/L or more).  Elevated levels of radon gas have been found in many homes and businesses in Alaska. “The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U.S. Surgeon General, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) strongly recommend that ALL homebuyers have an indoor radon test performed before purchase or taking occupancy and recommend having the radon levels mitigated if elevated radon concentrations are found. All homes should be tested regardless of geographic location or foundation type. Radon, a Class-A human carcinogen, is the leading cause of lung cancer in nonsmokers and the second leading cause overall”. You cannot see, smell or taste radon. But it still may be a problem in your home.
