Radon is a serious health hazard  - the leading cause of lung cancer among non- smokers.  Over 21,000 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 on the Kansas side Olathe, Overland Park, Lenexa, Leawood, and Shawnee Mission.  We are proud to have helped hundreds of satisfied customers be radon safe!

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% - 40% 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.  Every home should be tested for radon!


The Kansas City Metro is designated as "Zone One" (red counties) in radon frequency-
This map from the Environmental Protection Agency indicates the highest occurrence
 of dangerous radon levels.  Forty percent of all homes tested in the Kansas City area are found to have unsafe levels of radon. Forty to fifty percent of the radon found in a basement transfers to the main level.

ResCom offers a variety of testing options including the 48-hour Continuous Radon Monitor (CRM) test that can give a test result and printed report the same day the test ends - suitable for use at real estate closings.

REAL ESTATE TESTING AND MITIGATION -You can trust ResCom Radon Solutions to provide prompt and reliable radon testing and mitigation services during a real estate transaction!

- ResCom provides installation of passive radon systems during new-home construction as well as activation of passive systems by installing a radon fan in the attic of the home.  The fan takes air from beneath the basement floor that contains radon and other soil gasses and vents it safely through the roof. 

The Environmental Protection Agency provides a wide range of radon information on their web site:

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.

The EPA and American Cancer Society Recommends:

  •  Have your home tested!  Every home should be tested for radon.
  •  If you are buying a home or selling your home, have it tested.
  •  For a new home, ask if radon-resistant construction features were used and if the home has been tested.
  •  Fix the home if the radon level is 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) or higher.
  •  Radon levels less than 4 pCi/L still pose a risk, and may be reduced.
