Minneapolis Radon Mitigation

HUD Minneapolis Radon MitigationMinneapolis 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 a high risk of causing lung cancer. With nearly one out of every seven cases of lung cancer being caused by radon gas, it is only appropriate that the necessary action was taken by HUD in reducing the levels of radon gas in homes.

The first step you need to take in following the Minneapolis HUD regulations is having a radon test. The test will be a good indicator of the risk level of your home. Once your test results are returned, you will be able to see whether or not there is further action required for your home. There are two types of tests that can be conducted for homeowners in Minneapolis. The first type of test is a short term test which will provide you the results in a few days to a little over a week. A longer term test may take several months, but will provide more accurate results generally speaking. A short term test should be fine for most homes in the Minneapolis area. Regardless of which test you choose to have done to your home, be sure that your home has its doors and windows closed for the majority of the testing period to provide the most accurate results.

Minneapolis Radon Mitigation Needs

Minneapolis residents who own a multi-family home will need to have a mitigation system installed if their home shows high levels of radon gas.

S.W.A.T. Environmental Gains Recognition Nationally

Inc. 5000 MN Radon Mitigation has just declared Minneapolis, MN radon mitigation company, S.W.A.T. Environmental, as one of the nation’s fastest growing companies, and thirteenth fastest growing environmental services company. Specializing in radon mitigation, S.W.A.T. Environmental has installed over 10,000 radon reduction systems in 2011. Locally, we have made a great impact in the Minneapolis community providing quality installed systems for homes that have high levels of radon gas.

What started off as a small local company has added sixty five employees over the past three years, increased by 155%, and is projected to have revenues of $12 million in the year of 2012. It is amazing, but not surprising to think that a company that helps others reduce their risk of lung cancer is one of the most successful and fastest growing companies in the United States.

Why Minneapolis Radon Mitigation Company is so Successful

You are probably wondering how a small Minneapolis radon mitigation company became to be so large that it spreads across twenty six states with over forty locations. One of the reasons for this is the dangers that have been discovered about radon gas. Even though radon was discovered to be radioactive in the early 1900′s by Friedrich Dorn, we have not studied the long term health effects of radioactive material until recently. These results have been astounding and compelling to condemn radon as a hazardous gas.

More people are killed each year from radon gas in the form of lung cancer than drunk driving each year. Radon gas is invisible, and odorless, meaning you may not even know if your home is affected until it is too late. It is estimated that 7.8 million homes in America have above the normal levels of radon gas. Discover the truth about your home by having a professional conduct a radon test. Your radon test may only take a few days to complete, but long term tests may be done as well for increased accuracy for your Minneapolis home. Protect yourself, your children, and loved ones by scheduling radon testing in your Minneapolis home.
