Radon Gas Testing

Continuous Radon Monitors

We use Continuous Radon Monitors from Sun Nuclear for our radon gas testing. These electronic monitors offer many advantages over more traditional charcole canisters, most notably the ability to produce hourly radon measurments. The radon report you recieve will include the average radon gas level, as well as the lowest and highest reading during the testing period. Other features include tamper detection with a tilt switch and a battery backup in case there is a power outage.

Radon testing prices can be found on the Services and Pricing page.

Radon Is A Cancer-Causing, Radioactive Gas

You can't see radon. And you can't smell it or taste it. But it may be a problem in your home. Radon is estimated to cause many thousands of deaths each year. The Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths. If you smoke and your home has high radon levels, your risk of lung cancer is especially high.

Radon Can Be Found All Over The United States

Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon can be found all over the U.S. It can get into any type of building and build up to high levels. You and your family are most likely to get your greatest exposure at home. That's where you spend most of your time.

You Should Test For Radon.

Testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon. The EPA and the Surgeon General recommend testing all homes below the third floor for radon. EPA also recommends testing in schools. Testing is inexpensive and easy - it should only take a few minutes of your time.

You Can Fix A Radon Problem.

There are simple ways to fix a radon problem that aren't too costly. Even very high levels can be reduced to acceptable levels.
