American Radon Mitigation is family-owned business based in Anoka, Minnesota. Surplus amounts of radon gas in homes can be dangerous and even fatal if left unchecked. The professionals of American Radon Mitigation work to eliminate such dangers in order to keep homeowners and their families safe and secure. Meet the founder of American Radon Mitigation; Jesse Green.
Jesse Green entered the radon testing and mitigation services through his family in the spring of 2014. Jesse said, “I was working for my cousins at Greenway Excavating and running my party bus business struggling to make ends meet. My father was part-owner of Well Groomed Lawns with his younger brother Jim. Both of us were not crazy about what we were doing for a living.” A relative of Jesse recommended that they should look into radon mitigation as a way to enter a growing field in the real estate market.
Jesse and his father decided to look into radon mitigation, and after taking an education course sponsored by the owner of Inspecta Homes at Edina Realty, they decided to make the jump to start their own radon and mitigation business. Jesse and his father enrolled in radon measurement and mitigation course at the University of Minnesota. They aimed further and went on to achieve certifications which are typically voluntary in the state of Minnesota.
After a year in business, Jesse’s father left the business. Contemplating his next step and taking a major investment into the future success of his business, Jesse hired a business coach. Jesse considers this move as the turning point for American Radon Mitigation. With the help of a business coach, Jesse has more easily been able to convey his mission and method to customers.
In radon testing, many homeowners learn about radon only when purchasing or selling a home. Radon testing is done during the home inspection process. If a home is tested above 4.0 pCi/L or 2.0 pCi/L, then a buyer will require the seller to fix the problem prior to the home’s finalization of sale. Many sellers will opt for the most inexpensive option, which can cut corners and have disastrous results.
Speaking on the integrity of his business practices, Jesse explains, “It is something I am just not comfortable doing. If I am going to do a job, I want to do it right and to the best of my ability. Just getting someone below 4.0 pCi/L or 2.0 pCi/L is not good enough for me.” Jesse continues to work with homeowners who share similar values. Emphasizing the safety and security of homeowners, Jesse prioritizes customer service and care in his business.
Jesse explains, “Every time I am up to my armpit with my arm under a concrete floor, in a dirty crawl space or a 130-degree attic, I think to myself, ‘How can I make this system work better for the family that has trusted me to do so?’ I believe this is what sets American Radon apart from its competition and what has led to its newfound success.”
