Radon Gas Testing
Radon is a colorless, odorless, radioactive gas. It forms naturally from the radioactive decay of uranium, which is found at various levels in bedrock. Radon gas escapes upward through the soil from the bedrock below into the air, ground water and surface water. Radon can enter a home through imperfections in the floors and walls when there is contact between the home and the soil. Once it moves freely throughout the home’s indoor air, occupants breathe it into their lungs, where it can cause cell damage that may lead to lung cancer. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends taking action if the level of radon in your home is 4 picocuries per liter of air of higher. Radon testing can help keep you safe from these harmful gasses. Our trained professionals can perform a radon inspection to monitor levels of radon in your home.
