When you call the Advanced Radon Technologies team, you know you’re getting the best in design, service and performance. You benefit directly from our years of experience in radon investigation, testing and mitigation for thousands of residential structures (houses), school districts, government agencies and businesses across the Northwest. We are worldwide leaders in (radon) mitigation (and vapor intrusion) of large commercial structures.
Whether you are buying, selling, remodeling or just need to determine what your radon level is, we can meet your schedule and your requirements for radon testing and mitigation systems.
Our radon mitigation systems are designed to respect the beauty of a home. Whenever possible, interior installations make use of existing low profile spaces, such as non-living basement areas, closets and/or attics. Exterior installations are carefully designed to blend in with the existing architecture. Our goal is to (reduce radon and) improve interior air quality and protect the homeowner’s investment.

The Top 5 Myths About Radon
1) You have to have a basement to have a radon problem.
A) No. 60% to 80% of ALL houses in Spokane/CdA area have elevated radon regardless if the house has a basement, slab or crawl space.
2) Radon Testing and Mitigation are very expensive.
Radon testing ranges are approximately $125 to $200.
Radon mitigation ranges approximately $1700 to $2200 in 85% of local homes.
VERY few homes cost more than $2500 for mitigations systems.
3) Only certain areas have a radon problem.
Radon is found in high levels in ALL local zip codes.
Some areas have higher percentages of homes with elevated levels, or higher radon levels, but radon is found just about everywhere in the Inland Northwest.
4) Vacant homes have higher radon levels.
Vacant homes always test LOWER than occupied houses if all radon testing protocols are met. The forces that impact radon are minimized when the house is unoccupied.
Heating, exhaust fans, wood stoves/fireplaces and clothes dryers all raise radon levels, but are minimized or not used at all when the house is vacant.
5 ) If a house has a passive system all you need is a fan installed.
This is true for some houses, but not all or even most. If it is a larger home or if the radon levels are above 10 pCi/L the number of homes that can be repaired goes down substantially.
It is ART’s suggestion that a larger radon fan (Retro style) fan be installed and the home retested to make sure the passive radon system is effective or not. Many homes may require a completely new Retro system be installed to reduce the radon levels below 4 pCi/L.
Why Worry About Radon?
The Washington State Department of Health reported that Spokane County has the highest levels of cancer-causing radon gas in the State.
The Spokane County Health District has reported that approximately 60%-70% of the houses tested had radon levels above 4.0 pCi/L (picocuries of radon per liter of air).
The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare reports that approximately 60%-80% of the houses tested in Kootenai County had radon levels above 4.0 pCi/L.
Very good experience. They are very good at what they do… I met with Dave and he took care of us from start to finish. The install only took a few hours and the system looks good on the back of the house which was important to us. Highly Recommend.
