Midwest Radon

Measurement and Mitigation services throughout southeast Nebraska.

Every home in Nebrasksa should be tested for Radon

up to 21,000 lung cancer deaths in the US are caused by radon gas each year
54% of homes in Nebraska have high levels of radon gas
200 chest xrays at level 4pCi/L, the radon you inhale is the same as having 200 chest xrays per year

Nebraska is number 3!

Yes. You read that right. Because of the clay content in Nebraska's soil, the heartland comes in at number 3 in the nation for high levels of radon. Why does this matter? Because radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, and the number one cause of lung cancer for non-smokers. According to the EPA, Radon exposure is the number 1 health concern in your home. That's why radon measurement and mitigation for your home is of vital importance. Because the health and very life of your loved ones depends on radon testing, you can't ignore this danger.

Most radon-induced lung cancers occur from low and medium dose exposures in people’s homes. Radon is the second most important cause of lung cancer after smoking in many countries.

If you reside in any Nebraska county displayed in red, Radon testing for your property is extremely important!

Radon testing and mitigation in Nebraska

Measurement

Midwest Radon uses calibrated Continuous Radon Monitors to conduct professional short term tests that meet state and EPA standards of testing. Testing requires a minimum of 48 hours and can be left up to eight days. Upon retrieval results are available immediately. All measurements are performed by a licensed Radon Measurement Professional.

Mitigation

The EPA recommends mitigation, also called remediation, when a building tests above pCi/L. Installation of a Midwest Radon mitigation system is an effective and affordable way to remove radon. While efficient radon removal is the number 1 priority, aesthetics are carefully considered when designing each system. All of our systems are designed and installed by a licensed Radon Mitigation Professional.
