Radon testing is a simple and affordable way to protect your family from a slow and silent killer.
We live and work in an area of Ohio that according to the EPA is considered to be a red zone, or zone 1 area. From the above graphic the EPA predicted average for indoor radon levels in homes in this area is above the action level of 4 pCi/L of air.
Radon is a naturally occurring cancer-causing radioactive gas. You cannot see, smell, or taste radon. But it still may be a problem in your home. When you breathe air containing radon, you increase your risk of getting lung cancer. In fact, the Surgeon General of the United States has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today.
Whether you are involved in a real estate transaction or just want to protect your family’s health we highly recommend having a professional radon test performed. We are nationally certified by the NRPP and licensed by the State of Ohio Department of Health to perform radon testing.
The first step to protect yourself and your family is to check the concentration of radon in the home. We provide radon tests using specialized equipment to give you an accurate measurement of radon concentration levels. If the radon measurement is greater than 4 picocuries per liter, then it is recommended that you install a radon mitigation system. The most common radon mitigation systems use a fan to pull in radon from beneath the house, and vent it outdoors where it is quickly diluted to safe levels.
