COVID-19: Radon testing and mitigations are considered essential services because people spending more time in their homes exposes them to greater amounts of radon. Professional House Doctors and our employees are taking this risk very seriously and continue to make the health and safety of our customers our top priority. We are requiring all employees to refrain from handshakes, to respect social distancing and to wear face coverings at all possible times. In addition to following CDC guidelines, our precautionary measures to reduce the spread of the virus help us to serve you safely. Thank you for your understanding.

Radon Levels in the Quad Cities

Our area leads the nation in the percentage of homes over 4 pCi/L (70%) as well as the percentage of homes over 20 pCi/L. The average indoor radon level in the Quad Cities area is more than 6 times the national average.

In the last half century alone, one million people in the U.S. have died from radon exposure. An estimated 400 deaths occur each year in Iowa due to radon induced lung cancer. That is approximately the same number of Iowans who die in traffic accidents each year. Illinois, with a much higher population sees almost 1,200 deaths each year due to lung cancer caused by radon.

Sadly, very few people survive lung cancer. That is because lung cancer is usually diagnosed at the stage 4 level. At stage 4, the cancer will have spread beyond the lungs to the other organs. Doctors will try to prolong life and relieve the symptoms and treat it with chemotherapy. The cost to treat a person with lung cancer is about $250,000. It is more cost effective to reduce the level of radon in the home.
The only way to know if your home or building is safe is to test. Testing is easy and costs as little as $15 with kits available by calling our office. If you haven’t already tested - please do so as soon as possible.

"We would like to take this opportunity to formally thank you and your company for the sub-slab radon mitigation service you performed on our home. Because of your diligence and expertise in mitigating the crawlspace and basement, the final radon charcoal test turned out a very low result of <0.3 pCi/L, down from the original test of 6.8 pCi/L.

Along with the low test results, and the resulting health and increased home value benefits, we want to thank you for the respect you showed for our property while doing the work, the meticulous installation, and the prompt customer service throughout the process.

We would not have done the project without you and are very willingly sharing your name and outstanding services with whomever we can."
