Frequently Asked Questions About Radon Testing
There are no symptoms of radon poisoning. The only way to know if you have been exposed to high levels of radon is to have your property tested. Extended exposure to higher than recommended levels of radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the US.
The symptoms resulting from lung cancer are a persistent cough accompanied by hoarseness, wheezing, and shortness of breath. According to the American Lung Association, "If you are coughing up blood or experiencing chest pain," this could also be a sign of severe lung disease. Other symptoms include loss of appetite, weight loss, and fatigue. If you smoke, this can put you at an even higher risk of developing lung cancer from radon exposure. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to see a doctor as soon as possible.
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that can be found in bedrock, soil, and water. It is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, and smokers who are exposed to radon are at an even greater risk of developing the disease. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends taking action to reduce radon levels in structures that have a radon level at or above 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) of air.
Because of the breakdown of uranium and radium in the soil, the lower levels of a property typically have the higher levels of radon gas. The gas enters homes and buildings through cracks between floorboards, walls, or foundation pylons around pipes and wires which are usually found at or below ground level. Radon can also penetrate concrete slabs.
Radon can also enter your home through your water. If your home is on a private well, you should also test the water for radon. However, radon from city water sources has largely dissipated before it reaches your home.
Radon testing is an important part of protecting yourself and your family from radon exposure. While home radon tests are available at a low cost, the CDC recommends hiring a professional radon testing specialist certified by the NRPP. A professional radon testing specialist will be able to properly test your home for radon and provide you with accurate, onsite results with a faster turnaround time. In addition, a professional radon testing specialist can help you understand the results of your radon test and what they mean for your health. If you are concerned about radon exposure, hiring a professional radon testing specialist is the best way to ensure that your home is safe.
Trusted for exceptional radon testing since 1991
“I have been working with ReveAnn Ellrott at Radon Testing Services for years now. She is reliable, responsive and knowledgeable and always goes the extra mile to make sure everything goes smoothly. It is with great confidence that I recommend her to clients and I am thankful for the great service she provides!”
“We have used Radon Testing Services twice, and are so glad that we did. The test of our first house showed that we had acceptable levels of radon. The peace of mind that came from that was well worth the cost of the service. More recently, when we had another house tested, the test showed that the levels of radon were higher than recommended. The results of the report allowed us to negotiate a large credit from the seller, which covered the cost of radon remediation services. The investment in testing may have saved our (and our son's) health, and finding out about the radon during the inspection period certainly saved us a lot of money.”
"My experience with ReveAnn and Radon Testing has gone on for many years. I had Radon Testing done when my son purchased a house as well as his friends. They are very professional and experienced. My son's home was diagnosed with radon. We were referred to several companies that could mitigate the problem. I always work and refer clients and associates to ReveAnn."
