Illinois Radon Laws

Illinois Radon Laws Continued

We are continuing our look at Illinois Radon Laws. In our last post, we talked about how Illinois Radon Laws protect sellers, buyers & renters. This week we are looking at how our radon laws protect children & new construction dwellings.

Illinois Radon Law #3

As of January 1, 2013, Illinois mandated that all licensed daycare facilities test for the radioactive gas known as radon. Effective January 1, 2014, all daycare facilities have to show proof that their facilities have been tested within the last 3 years in order to maintain or apply for their license.

Illinois Radon Law #4

On June 1, 2013, the Radon Resistant Construction Act went into effect. This radon law mandates that all new construction of single-family homes, or condos, apartments & townhouses with two or fewer dwellings must have a passive radon pipe installed. The installation can be done by the residential building contractor, a subcontractor or a radon contractor during the new residential construction. In the event that the passive pipe needs to be activated (by installing a radon vent fan, creating an active radon mitigation system), the work must be performed by a radon mitigation contractor licensed by the Illinois Emergency Management Agency.

These Illinois Radon Laws are one step towards creating a safer environment for us to live, work & play. Have you heard of any of these Illinois radon laws? What other radon laws do you think should be implemented? We’d love to hear your thoughts. Share with us on Facebook!

Tom H. – Aurora, IL

"The technicians at Trinity services were extremely professional. It was a pleasure to open up our home to them. My wife and I were extremely impressed with how neat and clean they worked. A lot of contractors just don't care, but I could tell that Trinity was not one of those contractors."

Bruce – Naperville, IL

"I met Josiah last week when he came out to 310 S Rosedale in Aurora to consult with my clients about the house they are buying. I was very impressed by both his knowledge and wiliness to answer questions. Far too many in the trades are not quite so customer centric. In any case, it is my pleasure to recommend your company to other agents and to my own clients in the future."
