Wisconsin can be a wonderful place to live but when you spend a lot of hours indoors it can be very hazardous to you and your families health. In the winter the ground freezes and locks radon laden soil gases deep below the surface of the earth, allowing for a higher concentration of radon to enter your home. Radon is always a threat regardless of  what season it is. Unfortunately, southeastern Wisconsin and much of the rest of the state has elevated levels. The average outdoor radon levels in the U.S. are 0.4 pCi/L (picocuries/liter) and 1.3 pCi/L indoors. The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) says  that you should consider installing a mitigation system if levels are above 2pCi/L. At the bottom of this page you will see a map that can help you determine the estimated levels in your area. It does not show you the levels inside of your home, therefore it is imperative to have a test conducted by a licensed professional.

Radon facts

- Naturally occurring

- Chemically inert (cannot see or smell)

- Radioactive

- Negative pressure within a building causes radon laden soil gases to enter from the soil

- Radon breaks down into decay products and attaches to things such as dust then is inhaled, sticking to your lungs.

- Can be reduced to well below the EPA action level of 4 pCi/L when an ASD (active soil depressurization) system is installed.
