Hi, I am Greg Peters Owner of Radon testing of Minnesota.

 

I do this because I have been personally touched by the effects of Radon, my mother was diagnosed with lung cancer a few years ago and in the  doctor's appointment they were trying to figure out the cause of the cancer when they finally were done with all of the regular questions they asked if she has ever had here home tested for radon. the answer was no, I have a friend that is a home inspector and he conducted a Radon tests at my moms house. The Radon levels were 4 times the EPA recommended action level of 4pCi/L. The inspector had a company he highly recommended to do the mitigation, but my dad being the money conscious man that he is called a few other company's and had them come out and give quotes, but in the end he chose the company the inspector suggested because they were the most knowledgeable.  When the mitigation was complete the Radon level was 0.2 witch is about what the outdoor radon level is.

FYI My mother is doing well and is now cancer free.

 

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about Radon in you home or if you have questions about Radon and Real estate.

  Radon In Minnesota  Homes

 An estimated two out of five or more Minnesota homes and buildings can contain high levels of radon gas. 

 What is radon? 

 Radon is a colorless, odorless and tasteless radioactive gas that is produced by the breakdown of naturally occurring uranium and Radium in soil, rock and water. 

 Radon is harmlessly dispersed in outdoor air, but when trapped in buildings it increases the risk of lung cancer, especially at elevated levels, the higher the radon concentration the greater the risk of lung cancer. 

 Radon typically enters a home the same way air and other soil gases enter the home, through cracks in the foundation, floor's, walls and also hollow-block walls, openings around pipes, sump pumps, and floor drains. It can also be present in some construction materials and in water from underground sources including private wells.

 Any home, regardless of age, energy-efficiency, or foundation type, could have a radon problem. The only way to know whether or not a particular home has a problem is to test that home.
