Sample Reviews


I scheduled a radon mitigation estimate for August 4th. No one showed
up. On August 5th I got a call that they were so sorry, they completely
forgot and would be at my house later that afternoon. I was on the phone
when the gentleman came and he went right down to the basement and was
done in a few minutes. When he came back up I was still on the phone so
he said he would email me the proposal. The next day I still didn't get
it so I called and the woman said she knows it was emailed to me. Then
she said she realized she misspelled my email address so she would
resend it. I agreed to the proposal and they said they would come out on
August 15th. August 15th came and went and no one showed up. I called
this morning (knowing I would have to leave a voicemail) and was very
nice, but honestly I am very upset. I took a whole day off of work to
sit around and wait for this guy and he never showed up. This is very
unprofessional. Such a disappointment.

He texted me when he was heading to my house and told me his ETA. Arrived on time and work done within 20 min. Wonderful Job!

They arrived on time and finished the job in a timely fashion. Retesting showed success in the remediation. They were very easy to work with and if you have to have this work done, we would highly recommend them.
- Bernadette B.

He arrived on time. Put down protective covers on the floor, did an outstanding job of installation. He explained the system and how it works and what we need to do. When he left there was no sign he had been there. It was as clean as when he arrived.

Our mortgage almost fell through because of a mix-up with radon test results. We were given a short contingency to bring the tested level down from well above 5.
I called around and couldn't find anyone able to do the work on such short notice. My realtor called in a favor from this company and we went with them.
The initial conversations and scheduling were smooth. The day of, my mother-in-law hosted the installers and spoke extremely high of them. They completed the work within the scheduled time and everything looked great when I got home.
After the work, the test came back way lower than I thought possible.
Great work all around.

Radon X is a company that I would recommend without any hesitation. From the first call I made to obtain an estimate to the final email reporting a successful mitigation of radon gas, it was a flawless experience. I had an immediate sense that these owners could be trusted and demonstrated high integrity. I received the estimate in my email within 2 hours and the final bill was within a few dollars of the estimate. They helped educate me about Radon gas, explained the process, the equipment, the warranties and guarantees, expectations, etc. They were prompt on the day of the appointment and very professional. They went to great lengths to make sure the equipment was placed in the best spot and cleanup was immaculate. They even spray painted the white PVC pipe to match the shingles on the roof. You barely noticed it.
My home is up for sale following a divorce and I was very nervous that when they were finished, it wouldn't work. I expressed this to Mr.

and he said...."don't worry, it will work. If it didn't, I wouldn't be in business very long would I?" That eased my concerns and I trusted him. We had a high Radon gas level in the basement of 45.8. After installation of the mitigation system and retesting, the level was 2.0. It was refreshing to work with Mr. and Mrs.

.....clearly they are passionate and conscientious about their work. If you have a Radon Gas problem, don't waste your time and money on anybody else. You'll regret it.

were prompt to come and prepare a detailed estimate. Their knowledge and prompt reminders were impressive and I chose them over several other vendors including a much preferred by realtors vendor. The pricing was better but by far not the lowest. Their willingness to adapt their schedule to my realtor deal deadlines was impressive. When I saw the installation and the incredible change in measurements via testing, no doubt that the right company was selected.
Also their responsiveness to any calls with questions or problems (minor one today as a connection came loose....the owner himself drove to my home to make the repair inside of five hours everything was running great again. I can't understand anyone choosing another company to solve radon or uranium issues in the air or water.

ARMS really has their act together in that there is someone that answers emails and calls (almost immediately), talking you through the process and commonly asked questions, and then there's a separate person who actually does the work. I feel most companies rely on those doing the work to make appointments and answer questions and that model is often lacking.
I reached out to ARMS to get a quote on a radon mitigation system and a sump pump back-up.

asked some questions on what we were looking for and recommended that we hold off on the back-up for the sump pump until we were moved into the house so that we didn't overspend on something we didn't need (WOW!). We took her advice and scheduled the work.

and two other guys showed up bright and early at 7AM, right on time, and walked me through what they were going to do. I felt comfortable with their approach and they were good at listening to my concerns and working within my requests (didn't want the system visible from the outside of the house or in the living space in the basement). They did the work in about 5 hours and cleaned up all of their mess. Also showed me how to read the gauges on the system and let me know how to get an affordable test to monitor air quality.

I called
Ames Radon Mitigation Experts Provider Name Locked
as a referral from my realtor. He came and did an assessment of our situation and gave us two options - standard exhaust along the exterior or our home or for a couple of hundred dollars more, we could minimize the exterior exposure of the system and vent through our garage roof. We chose the latter and I'm happy we did.

did a great job of installing the system and explaining to us how it worked and the

system pressure check we would need to perform periodically to ensure the system was functioning properly. Our test results showed a tremendous reduction in our radon levels - orders of magnitude lower than the original score.
I would recommend

to anyone in need of radon removal. He was prompt, professional, and reasonably priced.

quoted and installed a radon mitigation system including covers for two sump holes. The installer arrived when they indicated that he would and promptly got to work. You could tell the installer knew what he was doing and had all of the tools needed to make the install quick and easy. During and after the install the area was maintained neat and clean. The final product looks well done and we are very happy with the results and the fact the install is
