Radon gas is a colorless, odorless, naturally occurring gas that is formed from the breakdown of uranium deposits in the rocks and soil in the ground under your home.
We test for radon using a continuous radon monitor that is setup and monitors for 48 hours. Radon tests are
performed by using both electret ion chambers and continuous monitoring systems. The monitors are placed
in the proper location for at least 48 hours. It measures the radon level hourly and averages the results for
the duration of the test. At the conclusion of the test, we send you an easy to read line graph that clearly
shows the hourly results and average concentrations of radon in your home.
Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, according to EPA estimates.
Overall, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. Radon is responsible for about
21,000 lung cancer deaths every year. About 2,900 of these deaths occur among people
who have never smoked.
