The tough homes are usually those with slightly elevated radon levels, frequently built on clay. There all the radon might be coming in from one fissure, and the tight clay might prevent our system vacuum from reaching it. We could take several tries and several suction points before finding the right location. We are very stubborn, and always win. More than 10,000 successful systems so far.)
Check out our 20 or 30 most recent test results using the window into Air Chek's database, and see how many times a value below 2 is listed. (Don't be scared off by the occasional high number; these are almost always pre-mitigation screening tests.)

In some situations it simply may not be possible to get the radon levels much below 4 pCi/l. After all, that's why EPA chose 4 as the Action Level. They were required by law* to choose the lowest level that could be achieved on the vast majority of homes. They considered 2, and rejected it.
