Radon Information

Radon Gas & Your Family's Health

Pennsylvania's authorized National Radon Defense Dealer

Radon is a naturally occurring gas that is present in soil, water, and air all over the planet. When present in the earth or water around your home (or in the building materials that make up your home itself), it can lead to serious health risks to all inhabitants of the building.

Because radon is odorless, tasteless, and invisible, the only reliable way to detect it in your home is through reliable radon testing. If an unsafe level of radon is detected in your home, our specialists at RCS can install a customized radon mitigation system that can reduce your home's radon levels.

Our radon services are available throughout Greater Westmoreland County, including Pittsburgh, Murrysville, New Kensington and nearby areas.

Radon Facts

  • Radon is produced as uranium naturally decays in soil layers.

  • Occurs naturally in every US state.

  • If your radon tests at 4 pCi/L or higher, a radon mitigation system is recommended.

  • Radon is a leading cause of lung cancer, comparable to tobacco smoke and asbestos. Radon leads to 15,400-21,800 deaths annually

  • Homes with crawl spaces are at higher risk for radon.

  • Long-term exposure to low levels of radon is actually more dangerous than a brief period of high exposure.

  • During the winter, when the house is sealed tight, radon concentrations can be up to ten times higher.

Installing Your Radon Mitigation System

Radon mitigation and testing in Pennsylvania

At RCS, we recommend mitigating radon with a sub-slab depressurization system. This type of solution offers a reliable, long-lasting solution that's proven to keep homes healthier and more radon free.

How Sub-Slab Radon Mitigation Systems Work:

  • Likely radon seepage points are sealed off
  • PVC pipe collects soil gases
  • Radon is piped upwards in the building
  • A radon depressurization vent forces radon out from your house

We are your local radon mitigation specialist in Saltsburg, Butler, Monroeville, Gibsonia, Allison Park, Wexford, Glenshaw and nearby. Call us today for an estimate on any of our radon gas services!
