Kansas Certified Contractors

The Kansas Radon Certification Law requires all persons performing radon testing or mitigation in the state, and all laboratories which perform laboratory analysis of radon test kits used in Kansas, to be certified by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. The KDHE website (https://www.kdhe.ks.gov/1061/Kansas-Radon) includes all Kansas-certified persons and laboratories. It is a violation of Kansas law for persons or laboratories NOT certified to be performing these services in Kansas.

Choosing a Radon Mitigation Technician? 

Remember to check references, get at least two bids, ask to see examples of previous work, and review the contract thoroughly. All radon mitigation technicians should guarantee that their system will reduce the radon levels to below 4.0 pCi/L for no additional costs. Any mitigation technician in Kansas by law must be state certified. Check out additional resources below.

Is the radon mitigation technician willing to perform an on-site evaluation of the home before giving you a bid?

A radon mitigation technician should perform an on-site assessment of the home as part of the development of the bid for radon mitigation system installation.

Is there a system warranty?

Review post-system installation services expected.
Questions include, but are not limited to:
• Is system performance guaranteed to achieve results less than 4.0 picocuries of radon per liter of air (pCi/L)?
• Who is performing the post-mitigation radon test and how will I get my results?
• What warranty on the system and parts does the mitigation technician include?
• What happens if the post-mitigation test indicates the radon mitigation system failed to reduce radon levels below the EPA’s Action Level of 4.0 pCi/L?
