About

We have been trained in Radon Mitigation.  We follow all protocols to assure the best results for you and your family.
 
The test takes a sample of the air and gives a result of your radon levels. This test can be completed in as little as 48 hours. This test will give you your Radon measurement in Pico curies per liter (pCi/L). Pico curies is how Radon tests are measured. A Pico curies per liter is defined as a unit of measure used to express the results of radioactivity tests in air and water. For radon gas, one Pico curie per liter is the amount of radon in the air so that 2.2 atoms of radon decay during one minute in one liter of air.
 
If the test results are above 4.0 pCi/L, this is considered above the US EPA's action level. At this point mitigation is recommended. Generally speaking any amount of radon carries some risk, even at or below the recommended action level. However the risk of lung cancer increases with the higher long-term average radon levels. So you may want to consider radon mitigation even if you level is below 4.0 pCi/L
 
These are some more thorough  recommendations from the Iowa Department of Health.
