What is Radon?

Radon gas is a colorless, odorless radioactive killer that is undetectable except through testing.

You cannot see, taste, or even smell radon. And yet, it may be a problem in your home.

Radon gas can cause cancer--and, it's the second leading cause of lung cancer!

What are Safe Levels of Radon?

radon testing for home, Staunton

Congress passed Radon Act 51, which uses the naturally occurring outdoor levels of radon gas, 4 pCi/L, as the target number for acceptable levels of indoor radon levels. However, ⅔ of all homes exceed this acceptability level.

If you have radon levels at this level or higher, the EPA recommends corrective action. 

How Radon Causes Cancer

Because radon gas is an unstable atom, it decays. As you breathe, you’ll breathe in both the radon decay products as well as the radon itself. Only the decayed radon products stick to lung tissue, which greatly increases the risk of lung cancer.

How Radon Gets into Your Home

Radon Starts Here

Radon is created by the natural breakdown of uranium found in soil which later turns into radon gas.

How Does Radon Mitigation Work?

Once we install the system, 24-hours later it's doing it's job, maintaining low radon levels.

Generally, we can install the mitigation system so that it doesn't affect how your house looks or how your family uses your home.

And if your system needs to be serviced, we can do that!

Once the problem is corrected, test the system 24 hours later to be sure radon levels have once again reduced.

Don't put your health or your family's health at risk!
