DuPage Process Difference
Over the years, DuPage Radon Contractors has developed a radon system installation process that is as trouble-free as possible.
Some radon mitigation installation problems can be very difficult to solve. A smaller company may run into these rare issues only once every 5 or 10 years. However, we do nearly 1,000 radon system installations a year, so we see the challenging jobs often enough that we've not only developed appropriate solutions, we have developed and incorporate procedures to help avoid these surprises and delays.

Quick & Easy Scheduling
Scheduling with us is easy. Simply click here to fill out our form, or just give us a call to schedule a radon installation consultation and bid appointment.
We are large enough to have full-time, highly trained staff answering your call. This makes it less likely you'll have to: leave a message, play phone tag or wait a day for the answer to your questions.
Our electronic, tablet-based pricing technology allows our System Designers to typically give you a radon system installation price the same day they come to evaluate the job. They can email a copy of the proposal immediately to any parties you indicate.
Home owners associations can have many regulations and forms that must be filled out before installing a radon mitigation system. We can help with communication with your HOA in order to ensure the system meets their rules and that they have required paperwork about our insurance or license.
Nearly every radon system installation is completed the same day that it is begun. Having a slightly larger company allows us to add workers to bigger jobs when needed. Twenty-four hours after installation, you'll be able retest radon levels.
Some situations are much harder to design and mitigate than others. Unlike smaller firms, we see enough of these "Tough Cases" each year that we have developed radon installation processes just for these cases. You won’t have to wait for days while the mitigator figures out a workable solution.
Did you Know...?
We offer limited weekend services on request. This is often available for either system designs or installations.
Squeeze You In
Having a bigger team allows us much more flexibility to help you if you have very tight time constraints. We are much more apt to be able to “shoehorn” a job in.
If we fail to achieve the desired radon level on the first mitigation system installation attempt, the diagnostics to determine the next steps can be very tricky. We have expensive diagnostic tools and a highly knowledgeable crew that is well-versed in these diagnostics.
Drilling through a water or electrical pipe that is hidden in the concrete can be a real problem. In order to avoid sub-slab items, DuPage Radon Contractors uses the most up-to-date technology, including thermal cameras, infrared thermometers, and ground penetrating radar. This is especially important in buildings with in-floor heating or buried electrical components.
About 3% of buildings require installing a radon mitigation system that does not meet state standards, and a state-approved variance is required. We are very fluent in handling this and have a process that is least likely to delay installation.
We provide a detailed proposal complete with a floor plan of the system part locations, descriptions of the parts, color choices, warranty information, preparation steps, and what to expect.
Because we visit your building before making a bid, the price we give is a true bid, not an estimate. Except for very unusual circumstances, this is the price you will pay. If the radon system installation turns out to be harder than expected, it usually comes out of DuPage Radon Contractors' pocket.
Our System Designers have extensive training in radon, radon systems installation, and building construction. Our thorough training helps ensure that the design they choose is the best possible design for the building, and that the installers won’t need to “re-think” the job when they arrive.
The team shows up ready to work. The work order is highly detailed and includes a drawing of the building to indicate where various system parts are to be installed. It also includes the details from the proposal, specific notes to the installer, and a detailed material list. Less delays due to surprises.
Before a radon mitigation installation team leaves the completed job, each part of the system is double checked in a step-by-step process, using a checklist for each item. Post-installation photos are also taken to verify proper installation.
All trash created by our team is removed and work areas are swept clean. We won't leave a surprise mess for you to clean up.
After installation, the crew lead will explain all about the new system, its operation, and maintenance and operational suggestions. Additionally, a detailed information sheet containing the same information is attached to the system for future reference.
We were very happy with your service. We like that your company stands behind their work to fix things until they are right. Price was reasonable as well.

“Dave and Larry did a great job installing our mitigation system and new sump pump. They were friendly, informative, and professional throughout the entire process. They explained both systems’ operation and answered all our questions. Afterward, the work location was cleaned up nicely. Excellent job.”
Sarah & Trent K., Plainfield, IL
“Installation was good. They explained various factors as it progressed and they were finished under the time estimate. Results from the test were excellent.”
