Radon Testing

From smoke detectors to home alarm systems, most homeowners and business owners do everything they can to ensure their properties are safe, healthy places.

Radon: The Shocking Facts

Many people are unaware of how dangerous radon is. Below are a few facts that detail its hazards — and why we should care:

  • According to the American Cancer Society, radon poisoning is the No. 1 cause of lung cancer after tobacco.
  • The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that radon causes 21,000 lung cancer deaths each year.
  • Radon is a radioactive gas that you can’t see, smell, or taste. You must do a radon test to know if it’s in your home.
  • Many homeowners have radon and don’t know about it. In fact, the EPA estimates that one in every 15 homes in the U.S. has elevated levels of radon.

Our Radon Testing Process

Radon Testing Atlanta
The EPA recommends testing for radon before buying or selling a home. You may want to test every couple of years as well, since radon levels fluctuate.While we’re conducting your home inspection or your commercial building inspection, we’ll set up a radon detector in the building. This detector will take hourly readings of the air for the next few days. We’ll then use the information collected during these readings to calculate the average radon levels. Any building with an average of 4 pCi/L or over is dangerous. The good news is that there are several forms of very effective remediation.

It’s important to note that radon isn’t confined to specific neighborhoods or geographic areas. Many people assume that they can skip testing their home if their neighbor’s house is radon free. The truth is that even if your neighbor’s home is safe, yours could still have dangerous levels of radon.
