Welcome to Healthy Air Solutions (a.k.a. Indoor Air Health Advisor)! I'm Val. I've worked in maintenance and construction my whole working life. For the last 12+ years I've focused on radon mitigation. How did I get into the field?
My mom decided to sell her home after her husband died. Before the sale went through, the buyers did a radon test. The level came back at 14pCi/L. That's more than 3 times the EPA's action level of 4pCi/L!
My mom had lived in that house for over 12 years and what was even more disconcerting was that her husband's first wife had died of lung cancer. She had never smoked a day in her life and had lived over 30 years in that house. Is it possible that radon caused her lung cancer? Sadly, that is possible. She had lived in the home and never even realized the danger.
This was the first time that the danger of radon gas really hit home for me. So I got certified as a radon mitigator and have been fixing radon ever since.
I run a small family business with my kids. My son, Jamison and I do several mitigations a week in homes near where we live in Western Wisconsin.
While we're out doing that, my son, Adrian is working in the shop, shipping radon mitigation supplies to people around the country.
This website is designed to inform others about the dangers of radon (and other indoor pollutants) and to help them to resolve any indoor air issues they may have.
If you haven't tested your home for radon yet, please do! It could save your life.
If you do have a radon problem, please read the information provided to learn about the mitigation process. We also provide in depth instructions and all the materials needed for the do-it-yourselfers out there.
If you need more information, please feel free to contact me.
