Radon testing

Radon is an odorless, tasteless, colorless gas that is a natural by-product of uranium and radium decay. Radon gas can become trapped inside a home or building, where it can increase to unhealthy concentrations. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that radon kills about 20,000 Americans each year—more than tobacco smoking and drunk driving combined.

health risks associated with Radon

Exposure to radon gas over time can cause lung cancer, and people who smoke are at an even higher risk. There are steps that can be taken to reduce radon levels inside buildings, including installing proper ventilation systems and sealing cracks in floors and walls.

How often should you test for radon?

Radon testing is an important part of maintaining a healthy home. There is no established frequency for conducting radon tests since the amount of radon in any given home can vary depending on factors such as the level of ventilation and the age and type of building materials used. However, it is generally recommended that you test your home at least once every two years, especially if you suspect that there may be a radon problem in your home.
