Comprehensive Radon Testing Services
Radon is the #2 cause of cancer in the United States, second only to smoking. Most people don’t realize how often it becomes a hazard for families, and you’d never notice this toxic gas seeping into your home. It’s invisible and has no odor. The only way to be sure of whether it’s there or not is a formal radon test by a professional.
Have a look at the EPA’s 2016 information sheet on the dangers of radon.
When to Get Radon Testing:
- pre-purchase checks so you know what you’re moving into
- general check ups after you’ve had the house for awhile to make sure nothing has changed
- getting professional recommendations about what to do next if radon is discovered
Radon testing is serious business. When you employ this kind of test for your home, it’s important to hire a professional with proper equipment and certifications.
After we carefully test your home and the immediate areas around it, we’ll send our samples to a lab for further testing. If the results come back radon positive, we’ll recommend the best course of action for your family.
If it’s been several years since your home’s last radon test, or if you’re not sure if the house has ever been tested, it’s a good idea to check. Even if the house was clean when it was first built (or since you bought it years ago), shifting in the foundation or nearby digging can disrupt the soil around your home and release pockets of radon that’d previously been contained.
Your home is your sanctuary. Don’t take chances with that when it’s easily crossed off — call us today!
