Radon Testing

Professional Radon Testing Services

Radon is a hidden threat in many homes. Since it is an invisible gas that has no smell, it can reach high levels in a building without ever being detected. Associated with more than 20,000 lung cancer deaths yearly, it is a serious national health concern. The EPA recommends that every home be tested for radon, and any home with a concentration of above 4 pc/L have radon mitigation systems installed and maintained.

The Radon Pros offers radon testing which can give you a very accurate understanding of the radon levels in your home. Most of our tests involve a Continuous Radon Monitor (a 48 hour test that reads with accurate results). Our professional testing is a simple, three step process:

  1. Contact The Radon Pros to schedule 2 meetings.
  2. The first meeting: The Radon Pros sets up the monitor in your house in an appropriate area.
  3. The second meeting: The Radon Pros arrive to read the monitor and explain the results to you.

We encourage you not to take chances with your family’s health and contact us today to schedule a test. A high radon reading is no cause for panic. We work hard to make sure that we can effectively and affordably correct radon levels in our clients’ homes. Our radon abatement is very effective and affordable.

Types of Tests

Every home should be tested for radon to ensure that the levels in the home are at a reasonable level. There are several different ways to test, including:

  • CRM – Continuous Radon Monitor Testing
  • Charcoal Canister Testing
  • Long-Term Testing
  • Indoor Water Testing

Continuous Radon Monitor Testing

The Radon Pros offers CRM testing, and often same day radon testing appointments are available for this kind of testing. CRM testing will give you a partial picture of what the radon levels in your home are like, but they will not give you a continuous picture of the radon exposure that your home is accustomed to year-round.

Charcoal Testing

Charcoal testing is the most inexpensive test available to test for radon levels. Like CRM testing, it offers a short term glimpse of the radon levels in your home rather than an ongoing picture of environmental changes. Charcoal testing should have multiple tests run during different seasons to check the accuracy and long-term significance of the results.

Long-Term Testing

Long term testing takes place over the course of 90-days or more in your home. It offers a more comprehensive picture of the radon levels over time in your house. It is a simple setup that only needs to run one test at a time.

Water Testing

In some cases, The Radon Pros recommends that homes with unusually high concentrations of radon in the air and well water have the tap water in the home tested. Water testing is an inexpensive procedure, but ingested radon can cause stomach cancer and it is sometimes necessary to deal with radon problems within water as well as the air.

All of our testing services will provide you with a better understanding of the radon levels in your home and whether it will be required to move forward with radon mitigation. If you have any questions or you would like to set up a test in your home, get an estimate from The Radon Pros today.
