Radon is a serious health hazard  - the leading cause of lung cancer among non- smokers.  Over 20,000 lung cancer deaths each year are caused by inhaling radon in homes, schools, and work places.  It's a hidden health threat because radon cannot be seen, smelled, or tasted.

ResCom Radon Solutions provides reliable, professional testing and radon reduction services for homes, schools, and businesses across the Kansas City metro area including North Kansas City, Liberty, Belton-Raymore, Lee's Summit, Blue Springs, Grain Valley, Independence and the Kansas side Olathe, Overland Park, Lenexa, Leawood, and Shawnee Mission.  We are proud to have helped hundreds of satisfied customers be radon safe!

Tom Manz, owner, is certified with the EPA-approved American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (AARST-NRPP), the leading certification program for radon professionals in North America.  

MULTI-FAMILY RADON MITIGATION -Tom Manz is also one of the few Kansas City metro area radon specialists who has qualified for the new multi-family radon mitigation certification.

ACTIVATION OF PASSIVE RADON SYSTEMS - Many newer homes are built with a passive radon system which consists of:
  • a vent pipe extending from the sub-slab gravel up to above the roof or eave
  • a physical barrier (polyethylene membrane) between the soil and house foundation
Passive radon systems do not reduce radon levels like an active system - usually no more than a 30% - 50% reduction.  Homes with passive radon systems need to be tested for radon and may need to be "activated" by having a radon fan installed in the attic and a manometer (a vacuum pressure gauge that measures the suction force created by the radon fan) installed, usually in the basement, to view the fan's operation.

Radon is a cancer-causing, natural, radioactive gas that you can't see, smell or taste. 

According to the American Cancer Society, American Lung Association, Surgeon General and the EPA, radon's presence in your home  poses a serious danger to your family's health.  It
is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers and is the second leading cause of lung cancer in America claiming over 20,000 lives annually. 

Radon is caused by decaying uranium in the soil and rock under a home or building.  It moves up through the ground to the air above and into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation and becomes trapped inside where it can build up.  This means new and older homes, well-sealed or drafty homes, with or without basements.  Any home can have high levels of radon.

Unhealthy levels of radon are frequently found in homes in the Midwest.  Homes in the Kansas City area including Jackson, Platte, and Clay counties in Missouri, and Johnson and Wyandotte County Kansas are in Zone I, which indicates the most frequency of dangerous levels – about 1 in 3 or 4 homes.  High levels of radon (even 30-50 pCi/L) are frequently found in Lee's Summit, Independence, Liberty, and on the Kansas side cities including Overland Park.
