“After receiving the results from my home inspection, I learned radon levels were well above the level EPA recommends for mitigation. Being new to the area, I asked friends and colleagues for recommendations about state certified radon mitigation companies. I contacted companies in Jacksonville, Tallahassee, and Gainesville. I chose Land Environmental from Gainesville because they explained the process clearly, were local, did not subcontract work to other companies, and were price competitive. Dawn met with my wife and I at our home and provided a mitigation plan which met our needs. Not long after, Dawn and her crew installed the mitigation system per plan which successfully lowered radon levels below the level EPA recommended for mitigation. I will recommend Dawn and Land Environmental to anyone who might need radon mitigation.”

I would recommend him highly.”
