Why have your Home Inspected for Radon?
Doing a simple radon test is part of making your home a healthy place for your family.
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that comes from uranium located in rock. It can penetrate permeable rocks and eventually escape to the surface, into buildings or into the air.
Like any radiation, excessive amounts of exposure can result in higher risk of lung cancer. In fact, radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, responsible for 21,000 deaths a year.
The EPA recommends taking action against radon if the amount is four picocuries per liter of air (4 pCi/L)
When radon test results are higher than 4 pCi/L, we consider doing a second test to confirm the results of the first test. If your radon test result is 4-8 pCi/L, you can do a second long-term (365 days) test to get a better idea of the annual average or do another short-term test (2-7 days). In either case, if the results are still 4 pCi/L or higher, you should take corrective action to reduce the radon levels in your home with a mitigation sytem.
