We Offer Radon Testing
Radon is a radioactive, colorless, odorless, tasteless gas, occurring naturally as a decay product of radium. Radon enters your home through the soil and it is everywhere, some areas just have higher levels of it. To be sure levels of radon in your home are safe for habitation, a 48 hour continuous measurement in the lowest habitable level of your home will be conducted.
Radon is measured in picocuries per liter, or pCi/L. The natural outdoor level of radon in the United States is 0.2 – 0.4 pCi/L. The US EPA has set the action level of indoor radon levels to be 4.0 pCi/L, meaning any measurement found in a home at this level or greater requires radon mitigation. You can view a map of areas across the United States and what the average measurement is by visiting epa.gov.
