Radon Testing

If you live in Des Moines, Newton, Ankeny, Waukee or anywhere in Iowa, your family may be at risk for radon exposure in your home. And there is no way to know unless you TEST for it. Call us for a professional radon test.

The U.S. Surgeon General recommends that every home should be tested for radon. Iowa has 6 to 8 times the national average of indoor radon, so if you live in Iowa TEST YOUR HOME. KNOW YOUR NUMBER. If you have a radon problem IT CAN BE FIXED. And remember that radon can reach dangerous levels in commercial buildings and schools as well. Take the guesswork out of radon testing in Iowa. Don’t avoid the potential problem. Whether you need residential or commercial radon testing, be aware and make a plan with a professional test.

Radon in Iowa Homes & Businesses

Your home or office poses the greatest exposure risk to radon gas, and the greatest risk for lung cancer. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. More people die from lung cancer in Iowa than any other cancers.

We are not in the business of radon mitigation (the term used for reducing radon levels in your home). We hope to be able to tell you your home or business does not have elevated radon.  But if it does, our consultation will arm you with a plan for the next steps to a healthier living environment.  We are an Iowa radon testing facility with licensed radon technicians credentialed by the Iowa Department of Public Health. We serve central Iowa homeowners and business owners in Des Moines, West Des Moines, Ankeny, Ames, Indianola, Waukee and the surrounding areas. Our state-of-the-art radon technology records hourly the concentration of radon decay products in your Iowa home or business. The report gives you the average measurement over a 2 to 3 day period. Armed with the radon test report and our consultation, you will have an accurate understanding of the quality of the air your family and employees are breathing.

If you are in need of radon testing services, give us a call to find out if you’re located within our service area.
