Radon Mitigation Installation Success
Determined to protect his loved ones, John embarked on a mission to install a radon mitigation system. Little did he know that this endeavor would present him with a formidable challenge. He spent hours researching the best methods, consulting experts, and gathering the necessary equipment.   The installation process proved to be intricate and demanding. John had to locate the most suitable location for the system, drill through the foundation, and ensure a proper seal to prevent any radon from seeping into their living spaces. It required meticulous attention to detail, precise measurements, and unwavering perseverance.   Days turned into weeks as John tirelessly labored, with the unwavering support of his family. They understood the importance of this task and encouraged him every step of the way. Finally, after weeks of hard work and dedication, the radon mitigation system was successfully installed.   A sense of relief washed over John as he tested the air in their home and found the radon levels significantly reduced. The safety of his family was no longer compromised. They could now breathe easy, knowing that their haven was shielded from the harmful effects of radon.   The experience taught John the power of determination and resilience. It reinforced the idea that a safe and secure environment for his family was worth every challenge faced. With newfound confidence and a deepened sense of gratitude, John was inspired to advocate for radon awareness in his community, ensuring that others were aware of the dangers and empowered to protect their own homes.
Radon-free air helps recovering lungs stay healthy
When Steve's wife was diagnosed with lung cancer, the non-smoking couple was confident that it was radon-induced. A test of their Corning basement revealed an average radon level of 4.0 pCi/L. Though Iowa's average household radon level, according to the Iowa Department of Public Health, is 8.5 pCi/L, the national Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends that all homes with a level at or above 4.0 pCi/L seek radon treatment. Unfortunately, radon mitigation can't reverse the health damage radon has caused, but it can eliminate future damage and safeguard recovery. Our team installed a suction-system with an exterior fan and economy sump pump to lower the couple's radon level and ensure they're breathing safe air. Best wishes to Steve and his family for a speedy and complete recovery.
Sewage issue leads to offensive lingering smell.
When tree roots invade the sewage pipes it causes many problems, blockage, leaks, and horrendous odors. After fixing the root issue this homeowner was still stuck in the lingering sewage smell throughout their home. Each home we work in gets a custom plan to resolve all the customers' issues.  For this home, we installed a sub-slab mitigation system to move the air under the home out and an Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) to bring in fresh conditioned air.  Within 5 minutes after the install, the odor was improving. “We had Tony as our salesperson, who did a fantastic job explaining the products and system design. Lance and Curt, CEO of the company, performed our install. Very satisfied so far! No sewer smells!”

Commercial Radon Mitigation - Atlantic, IA
This school's gym radon tested around 3 times for the owner to convince himself that it really needs to have a mitigation system. There's a system on the main school building and a second one that looks like it goes into the ground outside the storm shelter. The team decided to place the fan on the backside of the shelter and have it elevated closer to the roof. In that way it reaches the outlet for power. This was a challenge as it took a long to figure out how to arrange the structure of the system without adjusting any other infrastructure piping. Nevertheless, the installation was a success! Team never felt better!
