Radon is a radioactive gas that comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in the soil, rocks, or water.  Inhalation of radon gas is cancer causing and is a potential health risk to you and your family.

Radon testing is performed by placing an electronic device in the lower level of your home for a period of 48 hours.  A  reading is taken every hour over that time period in order to determine the average level of radon.

Radon testing follows a strict protocol established by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) for real estate transactions.
