Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that has become the second-leading cause of lung cancer — second only to cigarette smoke. We install radon mitigation systems in Indianapolis and surrounding areas to redirect and remove radon from your home or business.
Radon is a byproduct of uranium decay, and all soils and rocks contain different concentrations of uranium. As uranium breaks down over time, it releases radon and polonium. These two toxic byproducts then seep up and out of the soil. If your home is located on top of a high concentration of those gases, they seep through the porous concrete footings and slabs of your home and get trapped instead of escaping out into the open air.
Radon is undetectable with our senses, so it easily goes unnoticed. Over time, continuous exposure to radon leaves everyone in the home increasingly susceptible to lung cancer.

Most radon mitigation systems require the skilled services of a professional contractor, like SmartCrawl, who is experienced in radon reduction procedures. It’s so important to have the technical knowledge to reduce the radon levels in your home safely and effectively. We are committed to assisting families and businesses in lowering their risk of radon gas exposure. This commitment drives us to create the most effective radon remediation systems while upholding the highest quality, aesthetics, and professional standards.
Radon mitigation systems are more accurately referred to as radon prevention systems. These systems extract radon gas from the soil beneath homes and buildings and release it into the air above the structure. This keeps radon gas from accumulating in the home, where it can be harmful to people and pets. The majority of radon mitigation systems are set up by running a series of PVC pipes from a collection point in the basement, slab, or crawlspace. To create a permanent vacuum within the pipes, a specialized radon vent fan is installed. Some radon systems are mounted on the outside of a house or building. There is no radon solution that is “one size fits all.” Make sure you understand that in order for a radon mitigation system to work properly and reduce levels as low as possible, it must be tailored to the specific features of each home or building.

According to the World Health Organization, radon causes 15 percent of the world’s lung cancer cases and kills 20,000 people each year. Lung cancer kills more people each year than the other top cancers combined. It also receives the least amount of funding, because many people believe it’s a self-induced disease.
For those 20,000 non-smokers who haven’t spent extensive time around smokers, radon related lung cancer is far from self-induced. Radon induced lung cancer kills one person every 25 minutes, putting radon in the company of arsenic, asbestos and benzene as a Class-A Carcinogen.
