Frequently Asked Questions About Radon
According to the California Department of Health, radon has been found in every county in California. While referring the radon maps by the California Geological Survey will show where a high percentage of homes have elevated radon levels have been found, the only way to know if your property has higher than recommended radon levels is to test.
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.
According to the CDC, “(the), risk of lung cancer in children resulting from exposure to radon may be almost twice as high as the risk to adults exposed to the same amount of radon.”
If children are exposed to secondhand smoke in addition to radon, the risk of radon-related lung cancer jumps to twenty times greater than adults.
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.

“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."
