Most radon problems can be corrected with a mitigation system costing between $800 and $2,000 by a
qualified contractor. Occasionally lesser radon problems can be fixed using less expensive techniques such as sealing sump pits and other openings in the foundation.

A typical radon mitigation system is a 3”- 4” PVC pipe extending from a hole in the basement floor through the roof. A permanent fan supplies suction through the pipe drawing radon from beneath the slab and exhausting it outside above the eaves level of the house.
Iowa law requires professionals who install radon mitigation systems to be certified by the Iowa Department of Public Health. List available by calling the IDPH hotline at 1-800-383-5992 or by clicking here.
