Choose a radon mitigation contractor to fix your radon problem just as you
would for any other home repair. You may want to get more than one estimate, and
ask for and check their references. Make sure the person you hire is qualified to
install a mitigation system. Some states regulate or certify radon mitigation services
providers.

Be aware that a potential conflict of interest exists if the same person or firm
performs the testing and installs the mitigation system. Some states may require
the homeowner to sign a waiver in such cases. If the same person or firm does the
testing and mitigation, make sure the testing is done in accordance with the Radon
Testing Checklist
. Contact your state radon office for more information.
