The Importance of Radon Mitigation in Your Cedar Rapids Home
Known as a silent killer, radon gas is a toxic natural gas that leaches from the soil and can enter your home without you knowing it. It is completely odorless, colorless, and tasteless, and cannot be detected by any of your five senses. However, long-term exposure to high levels of radon can cause serious health problems. Here at MidAmerica Basement Systems, we offer radon mitigation services in Cedar Rapids, so you can keep your home and your family safe from harm.

If you are applying for funding through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the purchase or refinancing of a multifamily property, you are required to include proof of radon testing and mitigation if elevated levels of radon gas are found.
Effective radon mitigation for your safety
The team here at MidAmerica Basement Systems can perform testing of your current radon levels to determine the best radon mitigation system for your Cedar Rapids property. Levels of radon that are 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) or higher must be taken care of right away, as this presents a hazardous level of radon in your home. We can easily install a radon mitigation system that will work around the clock, removing this dangerous gas from your basement.
Remember, there is no way to know if you are exposed to this toxic gas except through professional testing! And only a professional radon mitigation system can effectively lower radon levels in your Cedar Rapids home.
