    Customer Testimonial

              Chad was very professional and didn't use a bunch of technical jargon to try and sell me something I didn't need. Instead he listened to what I had to say, sold me a system that both of us thought would do the job, and wrote me out an estimate right here at my kitchen table. What great service! Chad is a very valuable asset to your company and I will recommend your services to all of my friends and family. If my radon level goes down that is! :)

    After testing at over a 7, homeowner from Breckenridge, MN emailed (Via our website) the experts at Innovative Basment Systems regarding radon mitigation.   System design specialist, Chad Matthews, met with the homeowner and went over the mitigation system. 

    Maybe 7 pCi/L doesn't sound all that bad, to grasp the gravity you have to understand the measuring system. Let's compare some figures.

    • 1 pCi/L is equal to 2.5 cigarettes a day.
    • The radiation in a 4.0 pCi/L level of radon is equal to the radiation from 100 chest x-rays.
    • Most hospitals actually only allow people to have four chest x-rays each year. That's .16 pCi/L per x-ray and .64 pCi/L a year. In other words, can you understand why the WHO has their action level at 2.7 pCi/L?

    Now, with mitigation successfully installed the homeowner can beathe a sigh of relief!
