Radon Testing

What is radon?

Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S, just behind smoking. Unfortunately, it is invisible and odorless, which makes it very hard to detect for the average person. Luckily, radon testing from a qualified contractor can make up for that.

How does radon testing work?

Radon testing with an experienced radon contractor is generally very quick and hassle free. First, the contractor will meet with you to discuss their plans, inform you of any steps you and your family must take in order to avoid skewing the results, and set up the radon monitoring system. Once this is set, it will usually only take about 48 hours before the results are ready.

Once the results are ready, your radon contractor will return to share the results with you. They will be looking specifically to see if your home has radon levels over 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) since this is the level the EPA recommends a mitigation system is installed. If you do have radon levels at or above 4.0 pCi/L, then they’ll use this time to discuss potentially installing a radon mitigation system. The good news is that even the highest radon levels can be reduced to a safe level by a properly installed radon mitigation system.

As simple as radon testing may be, it is an important step if you want to keep your family safe from a serious and potentially lethal indoor air pollutant. View our list of local radon testing contractors for professioanl assistance.
