Radon Gas & Your Family's Health

Iowa'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, Iowa Radon Defense's specialists can install a radon mitigation system tailored to your need to reduce the radon levels in your home.

Iowa Radon Defense offers radon services throughout Central Iowa, including Des Moines, Ankeny, Ames, and nearby areas.

Installing Your Radon Mitigation System

Radon mitigation and testing in Iowa

At Iowa Radon Defense, we recommend mitigating radon with a sub-slab depressurization system. This type of system 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
