Radon Testing & Mitigation

Did you know, on average, one in fifteen homes in the US is expected to have elevated levels of radon? Radon gas is one of the leading causes of lung cancer in the United States, but because it is an invisible and scentless gas the only way to know if you have a problem is to have your home tested.

Radon typically moves from ground and into your home through cracks and holes in the foundation or even concrete slab. Our team is trained and dedicated to testing and removing of radon if present in a home or business.

Should I be Worried About Radon?

Radon levels can vary drastically from one home to the next on the same block, and the only way to know for certain that your home is safe is to test for radon. A radon testing kit can be purchased online or at home improvement stores, or you may qualify for a free test kit from the Ohio Department of Health. We also offer professional radon testing services.

Radon levels can also vary from day to day, so it is recommend that testing be conducted over a long period. A short-term test can be used to determine if radon is present and if additional testing is needed.

What Happens if I Have Radon?

If your test results confirm radon gas is present in your home, you should take steps to mitigate the gas and to prevent it from entering your property. At ICON Property Rescue, we employ various radon mitigation methods to effectively seal your foundation and safely direct the radon gas away from your home. Post-mitigation, we will also re-test for radon to ensure successful remediation.
