Radon Testing

The most common source of indoor radon is uranium in the soil or rock on which homes are built. As uranium naturally breaks down, it releases radon gas which is a colorless, odorless radioactive gas.

Radon gas can enter homes through dirt floors cracks in concrete walls and floors, floor drains and sumps. When radon becomes trapped in buildings and concentrations build up indoors, exposure to radon becomes a concern. Any home may have a radon problem. This means new and old homes, well sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without basements. Sometimes radon enters the home through well water.

Health Effects of Radon

The predominant health effect associated with exposure to elevated levels of radon is lung cancer. Research suggests that swallowing water with high levels of radon may pose risks too, although these are believed to be much lower than those from breathing air containing radon. Major Health Centers (including the Center for Disease Control and prevention, the American Lung Association, and the American Medical Association) agree with estimates that radon causes thousands of preventable lung cancer deaths each year. EPA estimates that radon causes about 14,000 deaths per year in the United States. If you smoke and your home has high radon levels, your risk of lung cancer is especially high.

Measure levels of radon in your home

We use the Radalink Radon Telemonitor, which is a precise electronic instrument that produces speedy, tamper resistant test results you can trust. The monitor is usually placed in the lowest livable area of the home and takes hourly samples of the air. After the required placement time the unit is retrieved and the data is transmitted for analysis
