Radon testing in racine has become commonplace as more and more homeowners are finding out about the dangers of radon gas. It is very important to test your home for radon gas because of the harmful effects radon can cause to your body. Around 20,000 people a year die from lung cancer brought on by inhaling radon gas over an extended period. So even if you are not a smoker, you can be at a high risk of developing lung cancer if your home has elevated radon gas levels. Radon testing is the important first step in determining if you have a radon gas problem in your home. We offer three different testing options that are most commonly used for homeowners in Racine. Our short term monitor test provides accurate and fast results for people in the midst of a real estate transaction or people who want to know their results as fast as possible. Expect to pay 100-130 for a short term monitor test. Another testing option we offer is a DIY charcoal test. The charcoal radon testing kit is the most cost effective option we offer and probably the most popular. The DIY charcoal radon test kit is set up by the homeowner and then shipped into our lab to be analyzed, results are then sent back to the homeowner in a detailed report. Expect to pay around $25 dollars for a charcoal radon test. For homeowners who wish to see a detailed report of radon levels in their home over a long period of time, we offer a long term monitor test as well. The long term monitor radon test is set up in the home for a minimum of 30 days and will show you how much your radon gas levels fluctuate throughout whatever time period you choose. Expect to pay 120-160 for a long term monitor radon test. If you have questions about any of our testing options or would like to schedule a radon test for your home in Racine, give us a call or click the link below and our knowledgeable team will be happy to help!
Radon Mitigation Companies Near Racine
Assuming you home has tested elevated for Radon, the next step is to find the right radon mitigation company for your home in Racine. Before choosing the right company for you, there are some very important factors to consider. The first thing to consider is how long the company has been in the radon mitigation business. Many new radon mitigation companies are starting to pop up in the racine area to try and capitalize on “the new trend”, but the sad thing is they usually do not last very long in this business and many times leave the homeowner without anyone to call for questions and service calls. Our company has been in the radon mitigation business since 1998 and we install thousands of systems a year. You can depend on us being there for the lifetime of the radon mitigation system to answer any and all questions you have before and after installation. The next thing to consider before having radon mitigation work done is what kind of warranty is being offered to you. We guarantee our workmanship, so if for whatever reason something is wrong with the system and we find that it is our fault, we will come back immediately to fix it for no charge. We also have the longest fan warranty in the business of 7 years, so if that fan that we install malfunctions within seven years, you won’t be left having to pay for a new fan unlike some other companies who only have a five year warranty. Another thing to investigate before you choose the right radon mitigation company is what type of certifications they hold. Our company is certified by AARST (American Association of Radon Science Technologists) and the NRPP (National Radon Proficiency Program) which means we adhere to all of the standards set by those organizations and you can be sure that our workmanship is done right and to EPA and electrical codes. You may have heard the phrase “being cheap can be costly” and that applies to radon mitigation as well. There are some companies willing to throw in a system for your home for a “super low price” but they often do their own electrical work and don’t install the system correctly. This can lead to us having to come back out and rip out the existing system to install one properly for you. Home inspectors keep a close eye on how radon mitigation systems are installed, so why trust a company that cuts corners to do things right? You don’t want to have your closing date pushed back because of a radon mitigation system not being up to code. These are just a few big things to consider when choosing the right company to install a radon mitigation system in Racine.
