Minneapolis Radon Mitigation Minneapolis radon mitigation may be required for your Minneapolis home depending on a few things. Not only may this be required because of the health risk that radon gas poses, it will also be required according the recent HUD regulations. The recent HUD requirements state that every multi-family home financed through HUD must have every unit tested for radon gas. Every unit with high levels of radon gas will be required to have Minneapolis radon mitigation. The reason that this gas has become such a serious concern for HUD and homeowners in the area is because it is known to kill 20,000 people each and every year. This gas is now the second leading cause of lung cancer, and is a serious health concern for many. Depending on the location of your home, and the amount of uranium in the soil, your Minneapolis home may be at [...]

Minneapolis Needs Radon Mitigation in Schools Radon mitigation in schools in Minneapolis is not a very popular subject, but given all the recent talk of protecting teachers, students, and faculty at our schools, it must be brought up.

It is known to affect a large number of homes, and is known to kill over 20,000 people each year. While these numbers are frightening, it is also shocking to know that radon [...]

The Radon Problem in Minneapolis, Minnesota Water Supplies Several states within the United States tend to contain higher than average concentrations of dangerous radon gas. Minnesota is one of these states; the city of Minneapolis, in particular, has been found to often contain excessively high levels of this invisible and odorless radioactive gas.
