About U.S. Radon Professional's
Mitigation & Testing
U.S. Radon Professionals was formed to bring excellence
and professionalism to a Radon Mitigation industry that is full of low-ballers and corner-cutters.
Over the last twenty years, the danger of Radon gas in homes has become more widely known. Now, many states require Radon Testing to be completed before the sale of a home. Also in many states, Radon Mitigation is required if the Radon levels are found to be over 4 pCi/L. As a result, many companies have sprung up, eager to get into this rapidly growing business.
The federal guidelines for Radon Mitigation are very clear as to how Radon Professionals are to conduct their business. Some of these guidelines include:
- A visual inspection of the property before radon mitigation estimate is given.
- Sealing all perimeter gaps in each slab where a penetration is made.
- Venting above the roof line.
Many companies in Pittsburgh and Western P.A. don't do ANY of these three
things. These are only 3 of the requirements. There are MANY others that are ignored by companies offering
Radon Mitigation and Radon Testing services.
Although over-the-phone quotes might be allowed (assuming an inspection of the property is performed before the mitigation takes place), U.S. Radon Professionals chooses to go the extra mile and offer free, on-site inspections and estimates. Many of our customers choose us specifically because we were the only ones who came out and looked before bidding the job.
