Radon Testing

Radon gas is a colorless, odorless, tasteless radioactive gas that’s formed during the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water. Radon exits the ground and can seep into your home through cracks and holes in the foundation. Radon gas can also contaminate well water

Health officials have determined that radon gas is a carcinogen that can cause lung cancer. Studies show that radon is more of a risk to smokers, but non-smokers have a slightly elevated chance of developing lung cancer when radon levels in the home are high. The only way to find out if your house contains radon gas is to perform radon tests.

We use passive radon test kits to determine the radon levels of the home you are purchasing. The test kits remain in the home for two to seven days under closed house conditions. We then mail the tests to a laboratory for analysis. Our inspector’s will clearly explain the results of the test and walk you through the next steps if corrective action is needed.
