Radon Testing

Invisible. Odorless. Dangerous.

Radon is responsible for thousands of preventable deaths per year. You can’t taste it, smell it, or see this harmful radioactive gas, but it’s the result of naturally decaying uranium often found in building materials, soil, and water. Radon finds its way into the home from cracks in foundation and walls, gaps around service pipes, and from the water supply. It can leak into the air you breathe, and the water you drink, which is why it’s critical that if you suspect radon in your home, you schedule a test

According to the EPA, nearly 1 out of every 15 homes in the United States is estimated to have elevated radon levels, and some local counties require tests before a home can be sold. Radon is  especially prevalent in older homes, as they’re not built with radon-resistant features in mind. Exposure to radon overtime is especially dangerous, as it greatly raises your risk of lung cancer.  If the afflicted is already vulnerable due to a history of smoking, it can lead to a deadly combination.

How To Fix a Radon Problem In Your Home

The threat to your home from Radon can be considerable, but luckily, our team offers an easy action plan to remove it from your property.

Test for Radon

Our technicians will stop by and place a Continuous Radon Monitor (CRM) which will take hourly readings over the course of 48 hours and compare to the EPA average.

We also offer a secondary option for budget friendly testing. This is done through Liquid Scintillation Vials (LS Vial) which collects radon from the property, but can take up to 7 business days to process.

Check Levels

After the test is picked up, the test has a rapid turn around time of 2-3 days for the report. We will then make recommendations based on the test's findings.

According to the EPA, the average home has around 1.3 pCi/L of Radon inside, and 0.4 pCi/L outside. If your home exceeds
4 pCi/L of Radon, you will want to seek remediation immediately.

Remediation

If remediation is required, we will connect your with a professional who can deliver a radon remediation system to your property, where it will begin to remove the radon from your property.

Remediation is an inexpensive fix to the Radon problem, and upon completing, we offer a discounted Post Test (CRM Only) if you want to compare your new levels compared to those pre-remediation.

The EPA recommends Checking Your Radon Levels Every Two Years.
