What is radon?

Radon is a cancer-causing radioactive gas. You cannot see, smell or taste radon.

Radon Facts

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) and the Surgeon General’s Office have estimated that as many as 20,000 lung cancer deaths are caused each year by radon as the second leading cause of lung cancer. As many as 8 million homes may be affected by radon gas. While each home has acceptable radon levels, there are no immediate symptoms that will alert you to the presence of radon, as it typically takes years of exposure before any problems surface. Testing is the only way to know your home’s radon levels.

Radon Testing: Process & Procedures

Radon canisters are dropped at the home at the time of the inspection. They need to be kept undisturbed at the lowest level of the home, typically a basement, for 48 hours. At that time, the canisters are picked up for testing. You will receive a PDF report within 24 hours, typically less than 3-5 hours depending on the time of day.

If radon levels exceed 4 picocuries per liter, or pCi/L, or higher, simple and inexpensive techniques can reduce radon levels on average by 50%.
