Certified Radon Mitigation Contractors
A radon mitigation contractor is a professional who can fix your home to reduce the radon level. Lowering high radon levels requires technical knowledge and special skills. The EPA and Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health recommend the use of individuals who have been trained, passed an examination and are certified to provide radon mitigation services. To assist Nevada citizens, the Nevada Radon Education Program has compiled a list of Certified Mitigation Professionals in Nevada.
Radon professionals are certified through one of the two national voluntary radon proficiency programs — the National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP) and the National Radon Safety Board (NRSB). Both organizations list certified radon professionals on their websites:
Certified radon professionals will review testing guidelines and measurement results to determine the necessity for mitigation. He or she will evaluate the radon situation; provide a written and detailed proposal for mitigation; design the radon mitigation system; install the system according to EPA Standards; and verify that the completed system is functioning and effective.
You should ask to see a photo identification card of your radon professional. The radon professional's identification number should be noted in the test report and other documents.
