Radon Gas Testing
Radon is a cancer-causing radioactive gas. You cannot see, smell, or taste Radon. Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that comes from the natural breakdown of uranium. Usually found in igneous rock and soil but can also come from water. Every home should be tested, it’s the only way to know if you have it or not. Mitigation is simple if you have levels higher than 4 pCi/L (picocuries per liter).
To test for Radon, we leave a test kit pictured blow in your home, preferably a basement or bedroom, and let it gather samples for at least 48 hours.
After the sampling period, we collect the test and send it to a lab for examination.
Radon results will be sent to you in a report, if you have concerning levels of radon, we can provide you with advice on how to get a radon mitigation system installed in your home.
Radon testing season with kits like the one above is used during the colder months, October through March, when the home will be sealed for the colder seasons making testing more accurate. But a continuous radon monitor can be used during the warmer months if needed.
If the residence or living space tests over the action limit for radon, above 4 pCi/L, then it is advised that the owners look into installing a radon mitigation system. An example of a radon mitigation system is provided below:
