What is Radon?

Why Should Radon Concern me?

Radon is a colorless, odorless, tasteless naturally occurring radioactive gas which is emitted from the soil, rock and water. The gas originates from Uranium and brakes down over long lengths of time to form Radium. Radium when it breaks down during it's half-life forms Radon gas. 

Should I Test For Radon?

The EPA recommends all homes be tested for radon to ensure the levels in the home are not at or above the recommended levels of Radon, which is 4 pCi/l.

How Do I Test For Radon?

The best way to test for Radon is to have a qualified technician which is trained in the proper procedures and methods, using calibrated equipment designed to test for Radon.

Radon gas has only one side effect that we should be concerned about. It causes lung cancer. It is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer behind smoking.
