Radon Testing & Inspection
Radon Testing is key for home owners and potential home buyers throughout the Central Oregon region. According to the Surgeon General, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. The EPA estimates that radon is responsible for more nearly 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year in the United States. Radon comes from the natural decay of uranium that is found in nearly all soils. It typically moves up through the ground and into your home where it is trapped and can build up. Common entry points for Radon include your water supply, crawl space, bricks or rock walls, sump pumps or floor drains, slab joints and more. You cannot identify whether radon is present simply by looking at it because it is a colorless, odorless radioactive gas. Our certified inspectors can help identify potential radon gases that may need to be tested for conclusive results. Utilizing specialized techniques and technology, our radon inspectors will administer radon tests and interpret the results for you to determine if your home’s radon levels pose a health risk.
