My name is Dan, and I’m passionate about radon mitigation because I’ve witnessed its devastating effect firsthand.
I had worked my whole life as an electrician with a healthy salary, and then something happened that changed my career path forever. In February of 2018, the mother of my childhood friend, who lived across the street from me as I grew up, tragically died from lung cancer very soon after retirement. The news came as a shock to everyone. She was healthy, barely into her sixties, and most of all, she never smoked. So how did this happen?
Later her house was tested for Radon, and we discovered it was tested at 28 picocuries, nine times the EPA-mandated mitigation level of 4 or less! This astronomically high number capable of doing fatal damage to the human body.
When I heard about the test results, this sparked a whole host of questions for me. How was it possible for a deadly agent to linger in a house for so long and go completely undetected? How many other houses were like hers, filled with this invisible poison that has the potential to lead to tragedy? And most importantly, how many lives could be saved if the general public was simply made aware of Radon and took the simple step of testing their home?
These questions led me to change my whole career path and my mission. Now my mission is to educate people on the life-threatening hazards of Radon and encourage them to test their homes to see if they are living in a radioactive danger zone.

Comprehensive Mitigation systems
If the test shows that your radon levels are too high, we are ready to step in to fix the problem. We will not only install a custom system that sucks the radon right out of your home, we will also seal up any other possible cracks or breaches in the foundation that could allow noxious gasses to slip into your house.
We understand that every house in unique, and that means every radon issue is unique, too. For that reason, instead of offering a clumsy, one-fits-all solution, we provide a range of 12 different fans and numerous options to fit your unique home and get you the lowest levels possible. And low is good because there is no completely safe level of radon.
After the installation, we will come back every two years to test your radon levels again, and if your levels are too high again, we’ll fix it. We guarantee that.
All of our mitigations systems come with a 5-year warranty, so there’s no reason to worry.
