Radon is a natural radioactive gas that is a decay product of uranium. Radiation from radon and its decay products is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the world — surpassed only by smoking. Radon usually enters a home through its basement, foundation, or crawl space, and collects in the lower levels of a home. It is critically important for a homeowner or homebuyer to know whether your home or prospective home contains high concentrations of radon.
Environmental Inspection Services National Radon Proficiency Board-certified measurement providers can precisely measure radon concentrations in your home. Our inspector sets an electronic device that remains in place while the test runs, for 48 to 72 hours. The results are available when we retrieve the device. If radon is found, we will describe methods and costs for mitigation.
