Los Angeles – Radon Testing



Environmental Inspection Services is ready to send our radon inspectors, certified by the National Radon Proficiency Board, to help you assess radon levels in your home. Elevated radon levels are a major hazard to your health – radon trails only smoking as a cause of lung cancer worldwide.

In Los Angeles, approximately 6% of homes have elevated radon levels, according to the California Department of Public Health. The geology of some locations in Los Angeles predisposes them to high radon. Areas with higher likelihood of radon include the following zipcodes:

90010 (Koreatown), 90025 (West Los Angeles) , 90026 (Echo Park), 90027 (Griffith Park and Los Feliz), 90032 (Montecito Heights), 90039 (Atwater Village, Glendale), 90043 (Park Mesa Heights), 90045 (Westchester), 90049 (Brentwood), 90057 (Westlake), 90065 (Mt. Washington, Cypress Park, Glassel Park, Glendale), 90066 (Mar Vista), 90068 (Hollywood Hills), 90077 (Bel Air, Beverly Glen), 90078 (Hollywood)

We will perform your Los Angeles radon test by placing an electronic monitor that will test radon levels in your home over 2 to 3 days. Because radon enters the home from the ground, we will focus our radon test on the lowest levels of the structure

It is not. Radon levels differ based on where and how your house was built, not when.
EPA suggestions recommend Los Angeles radon tests up to the third floor.

Environmental Inspection Services does not offer radon abatement so that we can remain unbiased in our testing, but we can supply you with several courses of action.
Not necessarily, as radon can occur intermittently over large areas.
If you live in one of the listed zip codes, you are at high risk for elevated radon levels. In general, homes built on hills in Los Angeles are more likely to have radon.
If you plan on adding a basement, then yes.
