What is Radon?  

Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe and the water you drink. Radon can be found all over the U.S. It can get into any type of building - homes, offices, and schools - and result in a high indoor radon level. But you and your family are most likely to get your greatest exposure at home, where you spend most of your time. Testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon. EPA and the Surgeon General recommend testing all homes below the third floor for radon.

How does it get into my house?

It typically moves up through the ground to the air above and into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Your home traps radon inside, where it can build up. Any home may have a radon problem. This means new and old homes, well-sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without basements.

Testing for Radon in your Home

We deploy a Radon testing device in your home for 48hrs, come back to retrieve the device, make the reading, and report the answers to you in an easy to read format. Along with the results, we also provide you with the EPA Consumer’s Guide To Radon Reduction and the EPA Home Buyer’s and Seller’s Guide to Radon.
