"After moving in to our new home, we found a crack in the foundation upon inspection. It looked like it had once been pasted over with concrete but not properly grinded/filled. It was beginning to crack again. Jeremy showed up on-time and was able to diagnose and fix on the spot without a second visit. He grinded out the poor concrete job and filled it with hydraulic cement. He then sealed it with a rubber compound and went on his way. There was little to no effort on my part and Jeremy was a pleasure to deal with."

If not, then you probably are unaware of the dangers of high radon level. Radon is a dangerous gas that is generated from decay of uranium in the soil. It can easily seep into your home through cracks in the concrete floor or foundation. If the radon level in your home is too high, it can mean a number of possible reasons including:

Radon is a cancer causing gas that can easily enter your home through small cracks in the foundation and crack in the concrete floor in your basement. According to EPA, it is responsible for 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year in the US alone. #1 leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers.
Moreover, a higher radon level can significantly reduce the overall value of the property. Therefore, it is extremely important to get it fixed even if you do not plan to use the space personally. Radon mitigation systems can help in the fight against radon and sealing all the cracks and joints should also be on your to do list for radon prevention.
A very small concentration, almost 0.4 pCi/L, of radon is found in the air we breathe outside. Since this is considered the safe level, radon level in your home must ideally be that low as well. However, the minimum radon level achievable indoors is 1.3 pCi/L. A home is considered extremely dangerous to live in if the radon level is higher than 4 pCi/L.
Since radon is a radioactive gas, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission states that a person living in a home with radon levels of 4 pCi/L is exposed to 35 times more radiations than a person standing near a radioactive waste site.
