If your home’s radon testing results show a concentration higher than 4 pCi/L, the EPA recommends immediate radon removal for the health of your family. Other organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO) recommend home radon removal at even lower thresholds of 2.7 pCi/L.
Here’s the deal.
Although radon naturally occurs in the environment, there is no amount of radon that is considered safe or healthy for humans, especially when trapped in the confines of your home. If radon exists, the safest option is always to hire a certified radon removal team—like RadonAway—to eliminate this radioactive, carcinogenic gas.
Why You Should Leave Radon Mitigation to the Pros
Although radon testing can be done on your own, the actual mitigation of radon should always be completed by trained and licensed professionals. Here’s why:
- General contractors who advertise radon mitigation “on the side” may not understand the full picture. Hiring them for work that will only need to be redone is a waste of money.
- Because radon gas is odorless, colorless, and flavorless, it’s impossible to detect without specialized radon equipment—and it’s even harder to remove without the right tools.
- Radioactive radon is the second-highest cause of lung cancer in the United States. Removing radon from the home is simply too dangerous to leave to chance!
- Every single home faces a different set of risks regarding radon. Only an experienced technician will know how to find the right causes and the right solution.

- Radon in Air: Active soil depressurization (ASD) systems remove radon from the soil and vent it out above the roof. Every ASD solution is created for each individual home based on climate, soil conditions, home architecture, and more.
- Radon in Water: Depending on the concentration of radon, we’ll use either aeration or granular activated carbon (GAC) systems to reduce waterborne radon to a safe level.
