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.
