I actually went to the Internet to find a company to test the Radon in our home. I came across Radon Solutions' website and found the website to be very informative so I called and Mark had us Radon free in two weeks.

We were recommended Mark and Radon Solutions of WV by our realtor. We made the call and were happy with what we heard. Mark came out and actually LOOKED at our house, basement and crawl space to see what he would need to do for the mitigation. He knew what tools he would need, how long it would take and how much it would be. In the meantime the seller found a different company to do the mitigation and booked them on their own for the very next day. That company came out to the house, saw the crawl space & immediately backed out of the job. They said they wouldn't be able to do it and they left. We were about panicked at this point so we demanded that Mark and his team be the ones to do the work. We had come to find out that the company that left us high & dry was out of PA and were not even licensed to do work in W.Va. Mark came in, set up our system, told us all about it and even set up another company to do the next radon test. We could not be happier with how it looks and more importantly how it's performing. We will continue to recommend Mark and Radon Solutions to anyone we hear is in need of this. Thank you so much Mark for amazing service and our peace of mind!

Many times, Radon Solutions of WV have been asked to come out and look at someone's installation. Most of the time another installer from a competitor won't even come back out for service calls on their own system, or to fix high levels after their install fails to lower the radon levels. In the before and after below, we were asked to service a fan that had failed. The customer said the “out of state” company would not come out, that they were too far away. Pay close attention to the poor wiring in the before photo. We went out within 24 hours after receiving the request, determined the fan was under sized and the wiring was not up to code and was unsafe. We made the upgrades and the customer was very happy and now has a local radon contractor for all their radon related needs close by.
The homeowner called my company to see why a home inspector found high radon gas levels inside his home during a real estate transaction. When I arrived on-sit, the radon system was not running. I advised the system to be on for 24 hours and the home re-tested. Homeowner agreed, and he was happy I found the issue (radon fan not running). I placed a Continuous Radon Monitor (CRM) with a 24-hour delay. The system has very little information noted and lacked historical data. I estimated the system to 19 years old. The homeowner said the fan was replaced 7 years ago. I noted at that time the radon system was treating a crawlspace and part of a slab. The un-finished basement had not been treated. Three days later I got my CRM and the basement still had high radon levels. Being the home was under contract for purchase, the seller asks me the make all needed repairs, so the radon levels would be safe, and he could sell his home.
Our solution to address the high radon gas level was to upgrade the currant system to meet the currant standard in Ohio, increase the fan size to add treatment to the basement area and seal air leakage inside the basement. Post test after our upgrades was 1.3 pCi/L. That was an 82% reduction. We see this increasingly, just because a home or building has a system don’t mean the radon levels are low. Test every two years, and always test when you are buying or selling.
Before and after radon levels.
We installed a vapor barrier in this Marietta, OH crawlspace as part of a radon mitigation system. the barrier will prevent the gas from entering the crawlspace and home.
