We Test For Radon
What You Need To Know
Radon is a cancer-causing radioactive gas. You cannot see, smell or taste radon, and it may be a problem in your home. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. With 21,000 deaths a year. If you smoke and your home has high radon levels, you’re at higher risk for developing lung cancer. Some scientific studies of radon exposure indicate that children may be more sensitive to radon. This may be due to their higher respiration rate and their rapidly dividing cells, which may be more vulnerable to radiation damage.
Radon can enter a home through cracks in the foundation floor and walls, through basement floor drains and through sump openings. Radon can also enter a home through holes made in the foundation walls for pipes and other utility lines. Radon gas that enters a home through the basement or crawl space has no difficulty moving to the upstairs and into living areas.
EPA's recommendations to homeowners:
* Every home should be tested, regardless of location
* If your radon level is 4 pCi/L or higher, have it fixed immediately
* If your radon level is 2 pCi/L or higher, consider fixing it, and monitor
• Using state of the art equipment our RadStar RS300 continuous radon monitor will have your radon results in 48 hours •
