What is Radon?

A radioactive gas with no color or smell, radon is. Lung cancer can develop if a person is exposed to high doses of it over time. When radioactive metal decays in rocks, soil, or groundwater, radon gas is naturally produced. Outdoor levels are low because to evaporation and disappearance. However, radon gas can infiltrate indoor spaces through building foundations and get trapped there.

What causes Radon exposure? 

​When Uranium underground decays it releases radon gas. That gas can enter through:

  1. Construction joints​

  2. Cracks in walls or floors

  3. Gaps in foundations

  4. ​Openings near pipes or wires​

How do we test for it?

A crucial precaution to take is home testing, particularly if you reside in an area where radon levels are greater. According to the EPA, there are currently six million residences in the US with hazardous radon levels. Your inspector will visit your house with his radon testing equipment, which will remain there for 48 hours. For the course of the test, our monitors take hourly readings of the radon concentration, temperature, barometric pressure, and relative humidity. Additionally, our monitors feature a sensor that can determine if they have been moved during a test.
