Our testing devices measure the rate of radioactive decay, not mass or volume of radon. Many area’s in Greene County will test differently due to the various types of soil and bedrock. The only possible way to know if you have radon is to test for it. Radon is inert and cannot be seen of smelled.

Although radon can come from landfills and other man-made situations, the majority of radon comes from the soil beneath us. It is very localized, it comes from the area directly under and a few meters around buildings.
