The Illinois Radon Awareness Act - Effective January 1, 2008

Due to the unique considerations of real estate transactions involving multiple parties, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has enacted special protocols for radon testing involving real estate transactions. The Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA-Division of Nuclear Safety) has adapted these protocols to conform with national radon regulations.  In this environment, Illinois real estate professionals need honest, reliable, and affordable service providers like Midwest Radon Services to help guide them through the complexities and concerns of radon detection and mitigation.
