Radon Test Inspections / Mitigation Contractors / Laboratories

Radon testers and mitigators (radon reduction contractors) are not licensed or regulated in Michigan. However, there are two national organizations that offer radon measurement and mitigation certification, and if you choose to hire a professional to assist you, you are encouraged to hire a certified individual.

 

The two national organizations are the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) and the National Radon Safety Board (NRSB). The DEQ Indoor Radon Program or your local health department can provide you with lists of measurement and mitigation service providers certified by these organizations, or you can visit the organization websites for the most complete and up-to-date information:
