People generally will be astonished by the implementation to this new radon reduction program. It is very important to work with a team with many years experience mitigating and installing radon mitigation systems.

Lets start with getting a general assessment as to what present levels of radon gas are on a their property. The gas occurs naturally underground, but it can and often does, seep up and into a home. Mitigation systems include certain radon mitigation methods, but it is important to get a a measurement assessment first. Hiring a trained experienced professional company, will assure that you receive the most accurate information possible in order to identify the risk. Once the need for radon mitigation system installation is determined, a time frame for the system install can be scheduled. A tester will come into the home after the radon mitigation system has been installed and measure the post-mitigation air gas.

Mitchell Street




Town of Lake

Town of Lake, is an area located near the Billy Mitchell Field Airport, being a neighborhood based on its namesake township. Established by the Territorial Legislature in 1838 and covered an abundance of what is now the south side of Milwaukee, as well as city of Cudahy. As time has passed, the township was parceled among different area cities. The original boundaries for the Town of Lake were Greenfield Ave to the north, Lake Michigan to the east, with College Ave (called Town Line Rd originally) to the south, and 27th Street to the west. In 1951, St. Francis incorporated so that to prevent annexation by Milwaukee, in effect it was "seceding" from the Town of Lake.

Before the annexation, the township's boundary to the norht was Howard Ave, with exception for a strip of land to the west of 20th Street going farther north to Morgan Ave. The old town hall on 6th and Howard is still to this day, referred to as the "Town of Lake Water Tower". Now officially called the Robert A. Anderson Municipal Building by the City of Milwaukee, it currently serves as office space and also includes a water treatment facility. The Town of Lake was then officially annexed in 1954. The township's residents had then voted not to incorporate as the "City of Lake" in 1928; incidentally, had they chosen to incorporate, the remaining area of the Town of Lake would probably have never been annexed by Milwaukee, and Milwaukee would have likely expanded further west and north instead. A noteworthy addition, it is also likely that the Milwaukee suburb of St. Francis would not have felt pressure to incorporate.

Walker's Point

Walker's Point neighborhood lies south of the Third Ward and the eastern part of Menomonee River Valley. Its founder, George H. Walker happened in 1835 as it had been a fur trading post. The area is now noted for being mostly an industrial neighborhood, with housing limited and scattered in pockets in the area, particularly on the eastern end of Walker's Point location.

The city's gay and lesbian community actively use these nightclubs and bars in the neighborhood. Recently, this area has seen some revitalization in office, condo,  and retail development as a spill over to the Milwaukee River neighborhood.  There has been attempt to revamp the area even more so. The L. Teweles Seed Company warehouse,[35] Fifth Ward Lofts, and the Milwaukee Water Council have been renovated.[36]

Rockwell Automation company has built their headquarters in this neighborhood. The Allen-Bradley Clock Tower, part of the Rockwell complex, is an iconic representation of the neighborhood and is the world's largest four-faced clock, as it is  listed in Guinness World RecordsEsperanza Unida, a community-based nonprofit organization, is located on the western edge and end of Walker's Point. Data security software provider and ZIP file creators PKWARE have relocated their headquarters to the neighborhood in 2014.[37] Local architecture firm Plunkett Raysich Architects, LLP did also relocate from its long-time location on the northwest side in May 2015.[38]

Lower East Side is a neighborhood which is located North of Downtown and East of Riverwest. It is bounded by the Milwaukee River on the west, Lake Michigan located on the east, North Avenue on the north and the location of State Street on the south.[41] Brady Street itself runs west from Prospect Avenue (which overlooks the Lake) to Water Street.

In the years of the 1880s, Brady Street became a dominant commercial district of Yankee and German owned shops.[42] Regano's Roman Coin, one of the original Pabst Brewery tied house taverns, is still located on Brady Street, though the vintage beer signs outside buildings taverns read "Blatz".

Lower East Side is often associated with was once "the heart" of Milwaukee's Italian community, as it has even been called "Milwaukee's Little Italy". But, then before World War II, it was largely home to Polish immigrants. In fact, historic St. Hedwig's Roman Catholic Church, being a long-time Polish church, which was built in 1871, stands at the corner of Brady Street and Humboldt Avenue. In the 1960s, Italians and other assimilated groups began to leave the neighborhood for the suburbs, while the hippies and other bohemians then moved in.[41] The 1980s saw blight, decay and neglect of the neighborhood, but now the area has been under revitalization and has become a model for New Urbanism.[41] Starting in the late 1990s, most of the bohemian population moved to Riverwest and Bay View.[citation needed] This neighborhood still has exhibited a strong, albeit upscale, independent flair. As example, the Brady Street festival is an annual event in July bringing together the neighborhood in a block party fashion.

At its western end, Brady Street is terminated by the renowned Brady Street Bus Shelter designed by La Dallman, who is the Milwaukee and Boston-based architecture practice of Grace La and James Dallman, and is known as Brady Street's “gateway to the river.”[44][45] The project, which does include a concrete, steel wood structure shelter as well as a prairie rain garden, as it is featured in numerous publications and has been awarded an American Institute of Architects Wisconsin Design Award.[46] The Bus Shelter was the first component of the Crossroads Project, including the Marsupial Bridge, Media Garden, and Viewing Pavilion (alongside Commerce Street), which renovates the last remaining segment of the trestle of Beerline B railway.

East Village

The East Village is terminology for the Lower East Side area on the east bank of the Milwaukee River, which is north of Brady Street, from Humboldt Avenue east to Warren Avenue.[47] Most of the neighborhood makes up the Brewers Hill Historic District, as it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The area includes Pulaski Playground, Caesar's Park, and Wolski's Tavern. The area was a traditional working-class neighborhood which was inhabited by Polish-Americans, including many Kaszubs; the architecture includes a number of Polish flats and duplexes and other forms of modest housing.[48]

The neighborhood is bisected by Newberry Blvd. which connects parks on Lake Michigan (named Lake Park) and the Milwaukee River (named Riverside Park). Murray Hill is home to both a university student population and also an abundant of long-term residents. The neighborhood has an active neighborhood group, namely the Murray Hill Neighborhood Association.[49] The childhood home of infamous industrial designer Brooks Stevens[50] was in Murray Hill.


Riverwest is a primarily residential neighborhood located west of the Milwaukee River and east of Holton Street, it is situated south of Estabrook Park, which is between Milwaukee's East Side, Brewers' Hill, Williamsburg Heights, and Harambee neighborhoods. It borders Capitol Drive to the north, The Milwaukee River borders to the east, North Avenue to the south and Holton Street location to west The main east–west arterial streets - Capitol Drive, Locust Street, and then North Avenue - connect Riverwest to the East Side via bridges. The main north–south arterial streets are - Holton Street and Humboldt Boulevard - connecting Riverwest to the downtown area, the lower East Side (specifically Brady Street), and suburban Shorewood. Along with those streets, Locust, Center, and Burleigh Streets are the major vein east–west corridors with bars, shops and where people go to  congregate. Riverwest is one of the neighborhoods that established its boundaries and identity before the 1990s Neighborhood Identification Project.[clarification needed][citation needed]

Riverwest is noted[51] for its racial and ethnic diversity, including larger numbers of African-Americans and Caucasians, as well as growing IranianRussianAsian, and Hispanic population.[52] With the neighborhood's near proximity to the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee, a sizable university/college student population also resides there.[51] Rapidly rising real estate values in the nearby east side neighborhoods has made Riverwest become more attractive to home buyers due to its closeness proximity to downtown and the university. These factors, along with other housing and commercial developments, followed a long period of decline in the area up through the 1990s.[citation needed] More recently, the trend has been caused a rising in property values and an increase in owner-occupied housing.[citation needed] Riverwest still features more affordable rental opportunities in its bungalows, duplexes, and "Polish flats" than is generally found closer to the university.[citation needed] Riverwest's high level of racial and economic integration has been studied in the 2017 book Live and Let Live by sociologist Evelyn M. Perry.[53]

Milwaukee's West Side

Avenues West[edit]

Avenues West is an area west of Milwaukee's downtown. It has borders by Interstate 43 on the east, 27th Street on the west, Interstate 94 to the south, and on the north is by Highland Avenue. In decades of the past, this neighborhood has been one of low income levels and property values. It was also home to Jeffery Dahmer, a notorious serial killer who murdered several of his victims at his apartment in the neighborhood Map. It has begun more recently to see some signs of redevelopment.[60] The most known mentioned example as being the Ambassador Hotel that, that until recently, has been linked with drug dealing and prostitution and has then since been restored to an upscale establishment. Prostitution, although not quite as prevalent as it was in the 2000s is still a concern in the Avenues West area. In an attempt to help control crime in this area, the college known as Marquette University went so far as to provide a small additional station for the Milwaukee Police Department's 3rd District, fittingly named "Avenues West". Other notable places in the area include Marquette University, the Milwaukee Rescue Mission, the Pabst Mansion, the Joseph B. Kalvelage House and the Rave/Eagles Ballroom. The portion to the west of the neighborhood along 27th Street has been recently nicknamed SoHi (i.e., South of Highland Boulevard) by the business owners in an effort to jumpstart the area.[61]

On May 18, 2006 a construction worker unearthed human remains in the neighborhood believed to be the location of Milwaukee's first cemetery established in the First Ward (known as the "Old Cemetery") near 22nd and Michigan. Thirteen burials have since been identified, and archaeologists are unsure if they are remnants from the Old Cemetery or an even earlier burial site used by a Potawatomi village Indians.[62]

This neighborhood is in position adjacent northwest and partially northeast of the Marquette Interchange, which was named its namesake because of its proximity to Marquette University. Lake Michigan is roughly one mile east of the neighborhood. Gesu Church is located within the campus' urban setting, but is not affiliated with the university. The area was at one time the site of the Wisconsin State Fairgrounds.[citation needed]

Cold Spring Park

Cold Spring Park is a small neighborhood in the vicinity of the Miller Brewing Company which is on the west side. Cold Spring Park has been around since the mid-19th century. It is named for a natural spring that was found in the northwest corner of the area (then bounded by 27th Street, 35th Street, West Juneau Avenue, and Vliet Street). As far as crime, Cold Spring Park is a rather calm area, compared to the other nearby sections of Milwaukee.

In 1852, Cold Spring Park was the site of the Wisconsin State Agricultural Society fair and exhibition. During the American Civil War, Cold Spring Park became Camp Washburn, housing the 2nd Cavalry, 30th Infantry, and the 39th Regiment. After the Civil War, Cold Spring Park once went back to become a race track. A race that was commemorated by famous Currier and Ives depicted an 1871 record breaking race by the mare Goldsmith Maid, with a time of 2 minutes and 17 seconds.

Adjacent to Cold Spring Park was the Cold Spring House, which was a hotel housing visitors and drivers for the races. It was notorious for its gambling, cockfightscourtesans and dances. At the close of the 19th century, Milwaukee saw a population boom, prompting the necessity of two new streets in Cold Spring Park; Highland Boulevard (1896) and McKinley Boulevard (1906).

Cold Spring Park initially drew German-American residents of the moderate to upper income scale. The upper end population residing primarily on Highland and McKinley, while the middle to moderate income community resided on Juneau and the numbered streets. Highland Boulevard, Juneau Avenue, and McKinley Boulevard have been designated 'historical streets' by the City of Milwaukee.

Traditionally an Irish-American enclave, it is now an ethnically diverse neighborhood. There is little in the way of commerce in Merrill Park, largely confined to the boundary streets, which are major arterials.

Merrill Park was an early home to Milwaukee's Irish community. Many Irish settled in Merrill Park along with the rest of the west side of Milwaukee.[citation needed] The southern portion of the neighborhood was demolished in the 1950s in order to build Interstate 94. The 1960s brought on several redevelopment projects including streetscaping, new homes, and a new public housing tower. Marquette University High School has stayed in the neighborhood and has invested heavily in improving its campus and the surrounding neighborhood.

The neighborhood is seeing major physical improvements. Several new homes have been built on former vacant lots. Several old homes have been purchased and renovated. The Wisconsin Humane Society has made this neighborhood its primary location. Marquette University High School is undergoing a multimillion-dollar renovation and construction project as well.


Piggsville is a small residential enclave, four blocks by six blocks, at the west end of the Menomonee River Valley, south of Miller Brewing and the Wisconsin Avenue viaduct, and north of Interstate 94. Various theories have been proposed about its name, but none have been proven true. It is also known as Valley Park, and its neighborhood association is the Valley Park Civic Association. Most of its homes were built in the early 20th century. The area was annexed by the City of Milwaukee in 1925 after petition by its residents. Flooding has been a problem because of its river valley location, and a new concrete retaining wall was built in 2000.

Mount Mary

Mount Mary surrounds the college called Mount Mary University. It is bordered by Concordia Ave. on the north end, 89th St. on the east side, Center St. on the south and Menomonee River Parkway on the west location.[68] With several curvilinear streets and fewer sidewalks, the neighborhood resembles a suburban neighborhood.

Hiram, along with his brother Horace, founded a quarry on the land in this area.[69] This neighborhood in itself lies on the hill just south of Wisconsin Avenue and it is characterized to be quite, tree-lined streets and an isolated from-city type feel, in sharp contrast to the busier and more depressed neighborhoods that surround it.

Story Hill was developed in the 1920s as a sanctuary place where middle class Milwaukeeans could live just east and toward downtown, in the once affluent Concordia district.[citation needed] The demand for larger lots and a more suburban feel fueled the development of Story Hill. The housing stock consists of ornate early 20th-century houses, in which were usually made of brick.

Walnut Hill

Walnut Hill is made up of predominantly African-American neighborhood and is located on the west side, which is bordered by 27th Street, 35th Street, Vliet Street, and North Avenue. There is also a strong southeast Asian (Hmong) presence here. The area is one of the most blighted in the city.[citation needed] Parts of the neighborhood included are streets without homes and large vacant lots. Despite severe problems in the neighborhood, several homes are under construction and some middle-income proposals are beginning to rise up and be seen.[citation needed]

Washington Heights

Washington Heights neighborhood is characterized by its 1920s Arts and Crafts existing housing stock. It's boundaries of Washington Heights are 60th St. on the west, North Ave. on the north, 47th St. and Washington Park on the east, and Vliet St. on the south location. Washington Heights should not be confused with The Washington Highlands, a neighborhood on the other side of 60th St., in Wauwatosa, being a suburb of Milwaukee.

St. James Evangelical Lutheran Church is a prominent congregation in the area, which dates back to1920s. Mount Olive Lutheran Church and School situated across the street from Saint Sebastian Catholic Church and School, built respectively in the 1920s and 1930s, at North 54th Street and Washington Boulevard, are large congregations in which they both serve as strong cornerstones within the neighborhood community.

One business, a long time coffee shop recently turned into a pizzeria, is unique in that it has a large coffee cup on the roof. The central administrative office building of Milwaukee Public Schools has its location in this neighborhood.

Washington Heights, is a neighborhood that does advertisements indicating itself as, "In the City — Out of the Ordinary!" lies along this  Milwaukee western border. While the neighborhood is now only minutes from downtown and close to urban amenities, this area was once considered remote in the early years.

Development of the area commenced in 1838 when federal government gave a parcel of land to the Wisconsin Territory. The land was intended for use as a canal that would connect the Rock River to Lake Michigan, but the venture quickly failed. The land was then sold to private investors.

In 1839, approximately, two-thirds of what is now known as Washington Heights was purchased by George Dousman as he turned it into an gigantic farm. In addition to its agricultural business operation, the Dousman family founded the Ne-Ska-Ra Mineral Springs Company, which had sold bottled water from a spring located on their property. Today the elementary school named Neeskara occupies land where the spring flowed. In later years, the Dousman land was sold in several parcels between the 1880s and the 1920s.

Early settlement of the area owed much to two major 19th Century projects. The two projects were the extension of the streetcar line to Wauwatosa and the construction of Washington Park.

The area has a notably-strong neighborhood community organization, the Washington Heights Neighborhood Association.

On September 20, 1900, the West Park was renamed Washington Park and the zoo followed suit by renaming to Washington Park Zoo. The zoo was then relocated to the present location when Washington Park lost an 18-acre (73,000 m2) parcel of park property to make way for the freeway expansion in the early 1960s.[71] Ice skating and regular outdoor concerts occurred in Washington Park until the early 1970s.[citation needed] Today, the park houses an amphitheatre and pool. In 2007, Milwaukee's Urban Ecology Center (headquartered in Riverside Park on the East Side) opened at satellite center in the park in an effort to help rejuvenate the run-down green space and provide interactive nature programming to youth locals.[70]

Lisbon and Sherman intersection, is the heart of the neighborhood, it stands an equestrian statue of Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben, a German general who did assist George Washington in the American Revolutionary War.

The East Town area also contains the historic Juneau Town settlement, which had competed with the neighboring Kilbourn Town (present-day Westown) for people and resources. With the Milwaukee River as the dividing point, these were two "towns" that have remarkably different feels. East Town has dense, narrower streets and a more closer intimate feel, whereas Westown has broad, vast streets with old buildings on it.

The Westown neighborhood has seen quite the substantial abundance area in redevelopment since the 2000s. It is home to one of Milwaukee's two free, public Wi-Fi outdoor Hotspots which are located in Pere Marquette Park.[74] Within West Town about 3,000 population reside. Some of the skyscrapers here, like the Wisconsin Tower have been converted into upscale condominiums. The city of Milwaukee have wanted to develop Westown as a neighborhood to eat, live and work.

Radon in high levels can cause cancer. Numerous studies in countries world wide, has conducted studies linking lung cancer with elevated radon levels. Radon is proven to be linked to lung cancer. These studies have also concluded that radon is the second cause of lung cancer in the United States. Radon is the first cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. Children can be at  higher risk than adults, since a child's cells divide faster than adults and their breathing respiratory rate is more rapid.

Another principal reason as to why radon is extremely hazardous is the fact radon is a single atom. This is an important factor, since this function allows radon to enter into the materials in used in buildings. Because radon contains a third atom, it is able to do what oxygen in the form of 02 cannot do. Also, Radioisotopes in heavy metals can eventually form a link which connects to other matter or materials, that is airborne. Inhaling dust particles, pet hair, minute bugs,  or mold and mildew could be the carrier which takes place when inhaling of the toxic gas.

When do I need to fix a radon problem?

The three fundamental ways to test a home or business/commercial property. The first, "Do-it-yourself" home radon testing package. These are charcoal packaged kits are usually made of charcoal. They are sold to mitigators by laboratories. They come with instructions regarding timetable and placing of the kit. Once taken down, they are then mailed back to the lab and contents are then assessed.

The down side of this method is the results of these 'At home radon package kits', will be performed by non-professional people and not radon experts.

The last two radon assessment techniques both fall under the expert radon request class.

The principal proficient radon affirmation is what is described as "short-term" radon sampling test. The air is sampled and is a fast method to use during real estate transactions. When testing with a radon professional, radon testing is placed on the lowest level of your home, usually the basement. The pro then follows guidelines and makes sure the equipment is placed properly and in compliance. The radon monitoring device is left to sample the air for 48 hours or a few days. The resident or homeowner is instructed to keep the home under closed conditions during this time period. The occupant is told to make sure these closed-home conditions take place 12 hours prior to the actual radon detector set up. One, retrieved, the time period is short one as far as reading the information goes.
In the event that the test comes out at or over 4 pCi/L, the EPA prescribes you take the correct measures to expel or alleviate the radon vapor from your home. This procedure of expelling the radon gas from your house is called radon remediation or radon mitigation.

The second proficient radon test is known as the annual or long-term radon request/measurement. This is a test that lasts up to a year or as little as 90 days. Since longer term measures take longer, normal movement and living is allowable during the time frame. An occupant of a business or residence lives normally throughout the radon inspection.
Note: the testing monitor is placed at the lowest level, just as it is placed with e shorter term test.

What is the Remedy To Allieviate the risk of radon?

To fix a home with high radon levels, is to install a radon mitigation system. Otherwise know as radon reduction system or remediation systems. We are experts at Depressurized sub-slab systems. This is the most commonly used methods for almost all our installs. Pipes are used to suck the radon gas out from under the basement or slab foundation. The fan powers the system to pull the radon particles out from under the ground.The placement of the pipes can vary and we will determine the best place to locate these pipes when we speak to you and find more information out about your home and how it's built. We pride ourselves on concealment. We are the best contractor construction less conspicuous noticeable piping. Placement of PVC pipe is also important, because if improper, radon can find its way back into the building. Other terms for this method has been noted as soil suction mitigation and active soil depressurization. If a property does not have a basement, it may take other ways to alleviate the gas, this is where expertise comes into play. There is nothing like experience and certification. Proper and efficient, that is our motto!

Moreover, experienced radon experts will likewise realize how to appropriately alleviate radon gas in less basic circumstances. A few properties that don't have customary storm cellars or properties that are based on various soil textures will require extraordinary materials, instruments, and possibly progressively complex frameworks to lessen radon levels in the home or property. Our master radon testing and radon control experts will guarantee your framework is done appropriately and effectively!

      Radon Mitigation System Cost: Cost Factors to Consider before you install

      Radon Mitigation System Cost Factors to Consider

      Photo: istockphoto.com

      Calculating Kenosha radon mitigation system costs do depend on factors. Factors to consider are prices can be different from national prices because of home size and design type, cement foundation brand, hot or cold climate, geographically located, installation fees, miscellaneous costs, municipality permit costs, equipment rental, testing expenses, inspection charges, and the design of the radon system itself.

      Design and size of home

      Each house is a unique in size and shape. Radon mitigation contractors can ask questions to get the stats and layout of the house when preparing a design estimate.  If a home has just a basement, which most homes do, than a typical estimate cost would be less than houses that also include a crawl space.  Some crawl spaces need to be covered with an air tight barrier and others do not. The larger the house the more the cost will go up by rule of thumb. Time associated with an installation as well as extra labor all factor in when determining the mitigation cost for a large house.

      Cement Foundation

      When we calculate cement foundations, we look at three types: first a below grade slab or basement, on grade slab or a crawl space. All three require a different method when installing mitigation.

      • Below grade slab (basement) may require utilizing a sump pump hole or drilling a hole for PVC pipe to be inserted below the slab and into the drain tile.
      • On grade slabs may have PVC piping to be inserted on the exterior of the home, although sometimes it is possible to drill a hole through the floor slab.
      • Crawl space uses a technique called encapsulation. A PVC pipe will be inserted out from under a membrane barrier of plastic.  A crawl space install can take a long time since it is not as accessible as other methods.

      Kenosha Radon Mitigation can cost from $850 to $1,200 depending upon foundation and size.  Radon removal benefits everyone who lives in the home.

      What makes Radon cause Lung Cancer

      The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency(EPA), has made estimations that radon gas exposure causes more than 21,000 lung cancer deaths each year.
      Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer amongst those individuals who are smokers.

      It is recommended that all homes be measured and tested for the gas according to EPA. Radon Mitigation newill be needed when the radon concentration is 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) or more.
      It is dangerous to health to live in a home with levels which are higher than 4 (pCi/L).

      How do we obtain a cost estimate and what is the time period as to when the radon system will be installed?

      A phone consultation will be initiated. Questions will be asked about how the home is set up. A design will be determined and the radon system will be installed shortly after that. 

      Can a radon mitigation system be installed any time of year?

      Absolutely! Radon testing can be set-up 12 months a year. If levels are elevated, a radon mitigation system can also be installed throughout the year.
