What We Do
We use state-of-the-art computerized testing monitors that take readings every hour for 2-4 days and give a printout of each hourly reading as well as the average radon level for the testing period. This is the most accurate short-term test available and allows you to avoid lengthy laboratory analysis.
If your home has elevated levels of radon, don’t worry. Elliott & Associates has the highest success rate in the industry, providing you with the lowest radon levels with our innovative design.
What really sets us apart from our competition is that we CARE about your family’s health and want to design the best system for your home. We don’t just install a generic system and hope it works. We scientifically test each home to determine the best location for your system so that it will be both effective and efficient.
Effective June 1, 2013 the Illinois Radon Resistant Construction Act went into effect stating that all new construction of single-family homes or dwellings containing 2 or fewer apartments, condominiums, or town houses must have a passive radon pipe installed. We work with builders to install and activate these systems.
Elliott & Associates has been designing and installing sub-slab depressurization systems and vapor/gaseous intrusion mitigation systems since 1986. As an early entrant into this field, which is only now beginning to become mainstream, our engineers pioneered proprietary methods for control of negative pressure field extension in buildings. Our experience in design and installation is wide ranging from the smallest of residential properties, to factories, to sprawling strip malls.
We Are A Professional Team
Elliott & Associates has been protecting families from radon for over 30 years. We have dedicated ourselves to providing the best customer service at the best value. When you hire Elliott & Associates you can be sure that you will be provided with amazing and professional service from your first phone call to the final completed system and beyond.
Radon Is Real
Radon gas is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. Approximately 42% of homes in Illinois have elevated levels of radon gas. Fortunately, it's a health risk that can be reduced by testing your home for radon, and taking action if the levels are too high. Elliott & Associates has over 30 years of experience in radon measurement and radon mitigation.

I thank you for your speedy response and efforts in mitigating the high levels of radon at our condo unit. This has cleared the way for completing the sale of our condo in Willowbrook. I must say that I was skeptical that radon levels could be reduced so much to below levels of 2 pCi/L. But that is what the mitigation accomplished.
Also, I appreciate your company getting involved in describing the solution and process to the prospective buyer. They were turned off by what they had heard from some other company, and considered backing away from their purchase. The discussion certainly allayed their concerns, and the buyers came back on board to continue and likely complete the sale process.
Thanks again Elliott for your professionalism and quick response. I have already referred you to my lawyer and realtor and will tell others about you. Being a former small business owner, I can say that you have built an impressive organization that I know you take a lot of pride in.
I highly recommend Elliott and Associates as a service provider for radon remediation. I purchased a Safety Siren Radon Gas Detector online and was confused about how to use it. After calling five other vendors Elliott was the first person who clearly explained the placement and use of the detector. When I determined that I had a problem, he came out to my house and explained my options. He followed up by emailing me a proposal that reflected his many years of experience, his thoroughness, and his commitment to quality service. I was impressed with the level of detail and with how conscientious he was in following through. The men he sent to do the work were prompt, professional, and neat. They answered all of my questions. Like Elliott they seemed determined to do a good job. My radon detector shows that they corrected the problem. Elliot called me in a few days to see how things went and gave me additional information about preventing mold. Thank you, Elliot for making this a pleasant experience as well as a successful remediation.
