Attention: Important Facts about Radon Gas Testing

For the health, safety, and well-being of you and your family it is essential that any potential home or property purchase be checked professionally for traces of Radon. The most troubling thing about radon is it is tasteless, odorless and has no color, making it near impossible to detect and treat without the correct testing.

The effects that radon can have on your health are devastating, here are the facts; radon is the second main cause of lung cancer in the USA, with smoking being the leading cause. Radon gas is created due to breakdown of uranium, which is found in the soil, the natural breakdown process creates a toxic gas that can leak into the home and contaminate the air. It also has the ability to travel through soil and pollute any wells or water cisterns below and/or on ground level around the home.

Generally, you can test for radon, either by using a passive or active gas-testing device. There are many options online in where you can buy a testing kit and set up yourself. The safer, more accurate, and more preferred option is to employ an experienced expert.

Passive testing devices do not require power in order to function, these devices are exposed to the air in your home for specific periods, the devices are then taken down and the results are sent onto a lab, tested, and analyzed for traces of radon.

Radon Gas Testers

Active Testing Devices do require electricity or power to function and are used to continuously record levels of radon that are found in the air within the home. This method of testing is far more accurate than passive testing and is more commonly used by trained professionals, including experienced home inspectors.

Don’t take the chance, ensure the safety of your family’s health with a radon specialty inspection.
