Consider hiring Integrity Home Evaluation Services for your Radon Inspection on your home.
If you’re a homeowner, it’s important to have your home tested for radon periodically. Currently, it’s recommended that your home be tested for radon every 2 years.
Radon is a colorless, odorless radioactive gas that is emitted by soil, rocks, and groundwater due to the breakdown of radioactive elements, and it’s one of the leading causes of lung cancer.
How Does Radon Testing Work?
Integrity’s professional radon testing uses a high-quality air tester, which is usually left on your property for 48 hours. Multiple testing units may be used to check different areas of your home for radon exposure.
Once the testing is complete, your Integrity home inspector will retrieve the device, analyze the results, and send you a comprehensive inspection report with recommendations for next steps.
Note – over-the-counter tests that are available at hardware stores are typically inaccurate, and may take months to properly test your radon levels.
You shouldn’t wait that long to determine your home’s radon levels, because the gas is lethal & should be treated with a mitigation system immediately.
Why Is Radon Testing Important? Understanding The Benefits
There are a few reasons radon testing is so important. Here are some of the benefits of getting professional radon testing.
Protect your family – Radon is a harmful carcinogen, and a leading contributor to lung cancer. Since it is odorless and tasteless, the only way to know if it’s present in your home is with professional testing.
Get peace of mind – If your radon tests come back negative, you’ll know that your home is safe and free from this gas, giving you valuable peace of mind.
Take action – If your radon levels are high, your home inspector can provide you with next steps for radon mitigation.
