Radon is a naturally occurring gas that is found all over the world.
In the United States, the northern regions of the country are typically at highest risk, but no area of the country is radon-free.
National Radon Defense (NRD) is your national network of radon mitigation specialists, serving across the continental United States.
Collectively, the companies within the network have made it their mission to uphold the standards, professional qualifications, and best practices that are characteristic of an effective radon mitigation service company.
Radon is an invisible, tasteless, odorless gas that's impossible to detect using human senses. It's possible for a building to have dangerously high radon gas levels, while the occupants remain completely unaware of the situation.
Fortunately, radon testing is possible through a simple, effective, do-it-yourself test. Professional radon testing services are also available.
Along with recruiting the best radon experts in the nation, the NRD network also offers simple, cost-effective radon test kits to homeowners who are interested in ensuring a healthier, safer home.

Radon is released into the atmosphere from the earth as uranium-rich soil and rocks degrade.
Radon sources are found directly in the earth, as well as in well water, and accumulate in enclosed spaces such as underground mines and basements.
National Radon Defense Dealers have been professionally licensed within their respective states to perform radon-related services for homeowners.
Technicians within the NRD network have completed extensive trainings on the best practices in installing radon mitigation systems. These systems are designed to pull radon from outside and inside the home, expelling it safely away from the home.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends choosing a qualified radon mitigation contractor that is licensed, certified, or registered with the state to address your issue. NRD Members are required to meet all of these industry standards.
Radon exposure is the #2 cause of lung cancer in the United States -- second only to smoking. To date, estimates show that 15,000-22,000 lung cancer deaths occur in the USA annually.
Other symptoms of radon poisoning include a persistent cough that doesn't improve, difficulty breathing, chest pains, coughing up of blood, hoarseness, and recurring respiratory infections such as pneumonia or bronchitis.
Despite the danger that radon presents, many homeowners have not yet had their home tested for radon. Checking radon levels is easy and affordable, and should be done in every home.
