Risks of Radon in your NE, IA, and MO Home

Radon gas in Nebraska, Iowa, and Missouri

Radon systems typically start in the crawl space or basement and force the gas out of the home.

You can't smell, taste or see radon gas, but it may still be a problem in your home.

Radon is estimated to cause more than 20,000 deaths each year. In fact, the surgeon general has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States - second only to smoking cigarettes. If your home has high levels of radon AND you smoke, the risk of lung cancer for those living in your home is exceptionally high.

Radon gas comes from the natural radioactive breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water. It's found in the air you breathe and is present in varying amounts throughout the entire country. Any type of building can contain high levels of radon, but the greatest chance of exposure happens where families spend the most time - at home.

Thrasher can test for radon gas levels in your home and if they are above the recommended levels, we can customize a radon mitigation system to fix the problem. With input from you, a mitigation system can be designed and installed to effectively bring home radon gas down to a safe level. We serve the Nebraska, Iowa, and Missouri area, including Grand Island, Bellevue, Council Bluffs, Norfolk, Fremont, North Platte, Kearney.
