Is radon testing essential?

The EPA Map of Radon Zones rates Columbus Ohio as a Zone 1 (highest potential).

Radon is an odorless, cancer-causing radioactive gas. It is produced as a by-product of the natural breakdown of uranium in the soil beneath us. It is the #1 killer of non-smokers in Ohio. It is responsible for an average of 900 lives each year in Ohio.

Essential information to know about radon:

  • It is the second-largest cause of lung cancer in the U.S.
  • According to several studies, children may be at a higher risk of radon exposure
  • Radon exposure is more dangerous if you have a history of smoking
  • About 1 out of 15 homes in the U.S. have detectable radon levels

 

Radon testing your home.

It enters your home through your building’s foundation where it is trapped and concentrates. You breathe it. Our radon inspection monitors will reveal your risk and we can remove it

Radon testing your business.

Any confined space where people spend a large portion of their day may subject them to poisonous radon gas. If testing reveals unsafe levels, we present a radon mitigation strategy to make your building safe and help protect you against potential liability. A large portion of our practice is commercial multi-tenant properties.

Radon Testing

Every building has measurable levels of radon. It’s simply a matter of whether the levels in your building present a risk.

Radon Mitigation

If mitigation is right for you, there are several proven methods to reduce radon in your building.

Do you offer free radon testing kits?

No. Our techs use Continous Electronic Monitoring equipment.

My home is pretty new/old. Why hasn't a system already been installed?

Some cities/counties do require new homes to be built using radon-resistant construction methods and installation of passive radon systems, but not all communities require this. To many, protection is voluntary.

Is it expensive to get radon tested?

A radon test costs $150.00. We send a representative to your property to deploy a continuous radon monitor. The monitor will remain for a minimum of 48 hours, we then return to discuss the results with the homeowner or property manager. If your levels are above the recommended action level of 4.0 picocurie per liter (pCi/L), we will discuss with you and design an appropriate radon mitigation system. 

My neighbor's home tested as acceptable, mine must be also?

FALSE. Even homes with similar floor plans, building materials, size & age can have different radon levels. Radon enters your home through anything that has contact with the ground. Even homes without basements can have elevated radon levels.
