A Radon Inspection That Keeps You Safe
Protect Your Loved Ones
Radon is a dangerous gas that can seep into your home from the ground, and it can cause serious health issues like lung cancer. That’s why it’s crucial to choose a trusted radon testing company to test your home and help you mitigate any risks.
I take pride in my thorough and efficient radon inspection services. My radon testing equipment is state-of-the-art, and I follow strict protocols to ensure the accuracy of the results. Here’s how my radon testing services work:
First, I’ll conduct a comprehensive review of your home to identify areas that need testing. Then, I’ll place 48-hour radon tests throughout your home, following specific guidelines to ensure accurate results. Once the tests are complete, I’ll send the radon testing equipment to a certified lab for further analysis.
When I receive the results back from the lab, I’ll provide you with a detailed report and explain what the results mean. If the results show that your home has high levels of radon, I’ll advise you on the next steps to take, including mitigation options to ensure the safety of your family.
I offer both short-term and long-term radon testing services. Short-term testing is done between 2 and 90 days and is typically done in real estate transactions, while long-term testing is done for longer than 90 days, up to a year. Long-term testing is the best way to determine year-long average exposure to radon, while short-term testing provides useful information to help determine risk.
As a responsible radon inspection service, I recommend testing for radon in every real estate transaction. If the test results are below EPA action levels, then risk for exposure is low, and a follow-up short-term test can be done in 4 to 6 months to be sure. If the results are at or above action levels, I recommend mitigation.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends mitigation when radon levels are at or above 4pCi/L, and encourages consideration if the levels are between 2pCi/L and 4pCi/L. While there is no safe level of radon, mitigation can help reduce the risk of exposure.
As a trusted expert, I take your health seriously, and I follow specific test condition requirements to ensure accurate results. Closed-building conditions are required to test for radon if the test is to last less than 91 days. This means that windows and doors need to stay closed for the duration of the test, while heating and cooling systems should remain in normal operation. Ceiling fans, fireplaces, and certain household appliances should not be used during the testing period.
