Radon Testing

Radon TesterRadon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, second to smoking. If radon levels are too high in a home, the home needs to be mitigated (or reduced), which is usually a small expense compared to the possible health problems of the occupants of the structure. Nearly 1 out of every 15 homes in the United States is estimated to have an elevated radon level (4 pCi/L or more). 


Testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon. EPA and the Surgeon General recommend testing all homes.
 
Loren uses the best radon testing equipment from Sun Nuclear to give reliable results.  A radon detecting device is placed in the home and collects radon levels over a 48-hour period.  These results are reported in electronic form and sent to the client within hours of testing.
