Radon Testing

What is a radon gas test, and why do I need it?

Radon is produced when uranium in the ground breaks down. This is an odorless invisible gas that can seep into homes through the basement and cracks in the foundation. If radon gas is present at high levels, it can be dangerous to human health. 

According to EPA recommendations, testing or retesting should occur during or after any of the following:

  • A change in ownership​

  • A structure alteration of the property resulting in a change in ventilation patterns

  • An addition to the property

  • The formation of major cracks in the foundation walls or slab

  • The installation of a radon mitigation system

  • Any nearby blasting or earthquake

  • Any penetration of the slab, or extension of the ground contact area

  • Every two years

Why Invest in Radon Testing?

This gas can be found in homes across the country. While it is not usually harmful in small amounts, long-term exposure to high levels of radon can increase your risk of developing lung cancer. This is why home radon testing is so important. If radon is present we can help you to identify the areas of your home where radon levels are high, and take steps to reduce your exposure. By taking action now to test for and reduce radon in your home, you can help to protect your home and your family.
