30-60 minute radon testing that delivers a quick and accurate radon concentration for curious homeowners
Radon is an odorless, colorless, radioactive gas that is formed through the radioactive decay chain of uranium. During this process, radioactive particles are also produced. Radon and the radioactive particles can enter your home through cracks and imperfections of your home. These radioactive particles can then be ingested by you or your loved ones. Through long-term exposure, these radioactive particles can cause severe damage to your lungs and even cause lung cancer.
There is no safe level of radon; but the World Health Organization suggests installing a radon mitigation system if the home has a Radon level of 2.7 pCi/L or higher.
- Children and smokers are at a higher risk for lung damage and lung cancer caused by radon
- Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer (behind smoking)
- Radon is estimated to kill 21,000 Americans per year
- Radon is the largest source of natural background radiation for Americans
