What is Radon?

According to the EPA, radon is a naturally occurring gas that forms from the breakdown of uranium in the rock, soil, and water beneath your building. Radon can become trapped indoors after it enters through porous materials or cracks in your foundation. While radon is found naturally in our atmosphere, it disperses rapidly and is not generally a health issue outdoors. However, radon becomes a concern when exposure occurs indoors as it isn’t easily detected by smell or sight.

Why Test for Radon?

Breathing radon over time poses a serious risk to one’s health. Radon exposure is the leading cause of lung cancer for nonsmokers in the United States. The good news is that there are simple steps you can take to ensure everyone in your building is safe from this dangerous and invisible gas.

Put Radon on Your Radar

Proactive testing for radon — at least every other year — is a habit worth getting into. Testing is inexpensive and easy. Simply place the test kit in your building’s lowest level for 3-7 days. After enough time has elapsed, mail your test kit to our lab partners for analysis. They will notify you of your results in a timely manner. If the lab results from your test come back indicating high levels of radon, we’ll work with you to discuss options for mitigating radon to safe levels. Whether you own a business or rental property, our radon services will help you determine if your building is at risk.
