Thanks for stopping by Wisconsin Radon Services. As the cold Wisconsin winter approaches it's important to have your home tested for radon because soon your windows will be closed for many months on end. If you already have a radon mitigation system make sure you're having it regularly checked to assure it's working correctly and the system was actually installed properly. Unfortunately many radon mitigation contractors in Madison and in Southern Wisconsin as a whole cut corners leaving home owners with list of problems and additional cost. Here are some important facts you should take in to consideration before settling with just any Radon Mitigation Contractor
Certification = Training
While Wisconsin does not yet require Radon Contractors to be Certified they do recognize Certified Contractors. (WRS) are certified through the Non Profit American Association of Radon Scientists – National Proficiency Program.)
Certification = Continuing Education Requirements
Category 1 and 2 Continuing Education 24 hours every 2 years to include Approved Education Programs, Radon Conference attendance and Public Outreach Efforts. (WRS) attended the Radon Conference Summit in Green Lake Wisconsin this year, donated postage paid test kits to the Free to Breath Lung Cancer Research Organization and the Deforest Lions Club Event in which 650.00 was raised for the Badger Honor Flight. Wisconsin Radon Services have also become certified in Multi Unit Testing and Certification to include other accredited courses.
Uncertified/ Poorly Trained Contractors DON’T KNOW CODE
Don’t be fooled by a low ball price from a Radon Contractor that’s not properly trained. Wisconsin Radon Services LLC follows the Environmental Protection Agency’s Radon Mitigation Standards and the American Society for Training and Materials Standards Practice for Radon Mitigation E2121-03 .7. Whether or not your Radon Contractor is Certified he MUST FOLLOW THE CODE. We get many service calls on new homeowners needing their systems fixed and suddenly cannot reach the contractor who recently installed their system.
Make sure your Radon Contractor know what's being put in your house
Each installer in your house should have his own separate certification number and maintain his own continuing education. They should also know the product they are installing to include:
