Radon is an invisible gas that comes from the breakdown of uranium rock in the soil. As the leading cause of lung cancer for non-smokers, radon is lethal and kills an estimated 21,000 people in the United States each year.
Although radon is found everywhere, radon gas levels are dangerously high in the state of Ohio, including in Perrysburg and Wood County. The EPA recommends that Ohio homeowners test for radon and work with a professional radon mitigation company like All Reliance to take a closer look and work on lowering radon levels.
All Reliance is a local radon testing and mitigation company serving the Greater Toledo area, including Perrysburg, Ohio and the surrounding areas. In addition to our home and commercial inspection services, water testing, and pest control solutions, we can help you both test for and mitigate deadly radon gas that may be found on your property.
What is Radon?
Radon is a cancer-causing poisonous gas that cannot be seen, smelt, or tasted. The only way to know of its presence is through testing. The Surgeon General warns that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, causing over 20,000 lung cancer deaths each year. It is estimated that 1 in every 5 American homes has radon above the action level. If your home is above the action level it is strongly recommended that the structure has a radon mitigation system installed.
Radon Levels in Perrysburg & Wood County, Ohio
According to the map below from the Environmental Protection Agency, Wood County, Ohio, which includes Perrysburg, is classified as Zone 2. This means that the predicted average indoor radon screening level is from 2 to 4 pCi/L (picocuries of radon per liter of air). The EPA has set the action level at 4 pCi/L and recommends that properties at this level or higher install a radon mitigation system to reduce the radon level.

Testing is the only way of knowing if a location has radon. It takes years of exposure before any symptoms are observed. Radon is measured in picocuries per liter, or pCi/l. the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends taking action to mitigate radon at levels of 4 pCi/l or above. To put this in context, a home with radon levels of 4 pCi/l is exposed to around 35 times more radiation than the Nuclear Regulatory Commission allows at the fence line of a radioactive waste site.
Perrysburg Radon Mitigation Systems
All Reliance makes having a radon mitigation system installed easy. We start by providing a free on-site survey of your home’s layout to come up with the best install method. The systems are designed by keeping your home’s characteristics in mind.
Radon mitigation systems are typically installed in one day. After completion of the system, a radon test will be left behind and picked up a few days later to ensure radon levels have been reduced to below 4.0 pCi/L, which is what the EPA has determined is a “safe” level. The radon levels are guaranteed to be below 4.0 pCi/L for the lifetime of the mitigation system.
Our skilled installers will leave your space in a clean condition as they found it upon arrival. They will go over the system install and how it works.
New Construction ‘Passive’ Radon System
For those building new homes in Perrysburg or Wood County area, as long as drywall has not been installed it is still possible to have a passive radon mitigation system installed. A passive system is the same as a regular mitigation system, except it does not have a fan installed. Many Perrysburg home-owners decide to have a passive system put in place so that if radon levels come back high once the home is built a radon fan can easily be installed to lower the radon concentration within the home. It saves money and the system is typically installed within the interior walls and through the attic where no one will ever see it. This avoids what some deem an eyesore of the radon fan on the exterior of the home.
The Best Radon Mitigation Warranty
Have comfort knowing that your radon mitigation system is backed by one of the best warranties in the industry. Our radon mitigation system comes with a 5-Year Full Replacement Fan warranty, Lifetime Low-Level Guarantee, and is fully transferable.
