Radon’s Indecent Exposure
Speaker: Elliott Wall and Kelly Sibert, Elliott & Associates Session Description: This presentation will provide basic information about radon, including what it is, where it comes from, and how it can affect your home and health. He will also provide information pertaining to the types of radon testing available, how testing should be conducted, and state testing protocols for specific building types. Finally, we will discuss radon inspection and how it relates to contracts for purchase and sale of real estate. Registration will open in February at http://westmontlibrary.org/ BIO: Kelly is the Illinois Licensed Radon Measurement Professional for SafeHouse Radon Testing and an attorney licensed to practice law in Illinois and Florida. With a background in real estate, business and foreclosure law, he took advantage of an opportunity to start his own radon testing business in 2013. Kelly has personally conducted nearly 1,000 radon tests in both residential and commercial settings, and services multiple home inspectors and realtors in the greater Chicagoland area. Kelly is a member of the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists and the National Radon Safety Board. BIO: Elliott started his business in 1985 as a radon testing contractor, not a radon mitigation contractor. But when he frequently found elevated levels of radon gas, there was no company in the Illinois area that performed radon mitigation. Since 1986 Elliott & Associates quickly became the first radon mitigation company in the area. He was the first mitigation professional in Northern Illinois with a special license for schools and commercial buildings. His passion for the radon industry grows every day, especially when he meets the families that have gone through lung cancer. He believes radon systems should be known as cancer prevention systems, not just active sub-slab ventilation systems. He is considered a leader in the industry for realizing there are other potential sources for radon gas such as: garage slabs, porches, and adjoining driveways in addition to basements and crawl spaces.
