What is Radon


Radon is a naturally occurring, invisible, odorless, and tasteless radioactive gas that is generated during the decomposition of uranium in soil. It dramatically increases the risk of cancer in those who inhale air contaminated with it for long periods of time. When radon gas enters the body, it exposes the lungs to small amounts of radiation. In small quantities, experts say this is harmless. However, in persistent exposures or larger quantities, radon can damage the cells of the lining of the lungs, increasing a person’s chance of developing lung cancer.


Testing and helpful guides


The EPA and the Surgeon General recommend testing all homes for radon. You cannot predict your home’s radon level based on state or local radon measurements or on test results taken in other homes in your surrounding area. Since radon is odorless, colorless and tasteless and the only way to find out the level of radon in your home is to test for it. If the level of radon is 4pCi/L or higher then steps should be taken to resolve this.


Our tests are performed by certified professionals who follow the EPA guidelines. The test will be completed in a minimum of 2 days and the results will be presented to you immediately after the completion of the test.
