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 home. 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. Radon becomes a concern when exposure occurs inside the home as it isn’t easily detected by smell or sight.

Why Test for Radon?

Breathing radon over time poses a serious risk for your family’s health and 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 protect your loved ones 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 home’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 minimizing radon to safe levels.
