Frequently Asked Questions About Radon Testing
The American Cancer Society says, “Getting your home tested for radon can help protect you and your family from a key cause of lung cancer.” According to the EPA, higher than recommended levels of radon gas accounts for approximately 21,000 deaths in America. Because radon is orderless, tasteless, and invisible, testing is the only way to know your indoor radon gas levels.
Because of the breakdown of uranium and radium in the soil, the lower levels of a property typically have 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.
All homes have some level of radon. The nationwide average is around 1.3 pCi/L. The EPA recommends that any property with radon gas levels at or above 4.0 pCi/L have a mitigation system installed. However, The World Health Organization recommends a maximum threshold of 2.7 pCi/L.
Radon is a radioactive gas that can be found in soil, water, and rocks. It is odorless and colorless, so it can only be detected through testing. Exposure to high levels of radon gas can cause lung cancer. There are a variety of ways to mitigate radon gas, including installing a radon venting system. Property owners should consult with a qualified professional to determine the best course of action for their situation. Taking action to reduce radon gas levels can help protect the health of occupants and improve the value of the property.
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."
