According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency: Radon is a naturally-occurring colorless, odorless, tasteless, radioactive gas that can cause lung cancer.
Radon gas forms naturally when radioactive metal (radium, thorium or uranium) breaks down in rocks, soil or groundwater. It evaporates and disappears outdoors, so levels outside are low. However, indoors, radon gas can enter buildings through their foundations and become trapped. People may breathe in radon gas in their homes, school, workplaces and other indoor places.
For the general population, the greatest exposure happens in the home. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that elevated radon levels are present in 1 of every 15 American homes.
Cigarette smoking is the number one cause of lung cancer, and radon exposure is estimated to be the second leading cause. About 21,000 people in the United States die from radon-related lung cancer every year.
Testing is the only way to find out your home's radon levels. The EPA and the Surgeon General recommend testing all homes below the third floor for radon.
Gain peace of mind and protect your family by scheduling your home or potential home for radon.
We offer professional Radon Testing by using the latest NRPP certified Continuous Radon Measurement (CRM) systems along with detailed radon reporting.
We are Radon Certified by the International Association of Certified Indoor Air Consultants (IAC2).
With our testing systems, Radon gas levels are reported in hourly increments over the span of 48 hours in units of picocurie per Liter (pCi/L). Although there is no acceptable “safe level” of radon or radioactive decay products, the EPA’s Action Level for Radon should be used when considering mitigation based on the average level reported in the test results.
