Radon Testing & Removal What is it? Radon is an invisible, odorless, and tasteless gas that enters your home via extremely tiny cracks in a housing structure. The decomposition of uranium rich soil is what gives off these harmful gasses. A typical home has a pressure differential which develops a vacuum effect. Vacuum + radon gases = dangerous indoor air quality. Radon is present in homes across America. The EPA reports that nationwide, radon is found in 1 out of 15 homes with an elevated level. Fact: the national average for indoor home radon levels is 1.3pCi/L Better fact: the state of Virginia has an average of 2.6pCiL for indoor home levels. That make Virginia twice as likely to have an unsafe radon level! Why should I be concerned? The U.S. Surgeon General issued this health advisory: Indoor radon is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and breathing it over prolonged periods can present a significant health risk to families all over the country. It’s important to know that this threat is completely preventable. Radon can be detected with a simple rest and fixed through well-established venting techniques. What can I do about it? You can ask for a home test which we can perform for you following all of the EPA’s national guidelines for radon testing. If your home is at an unsafe level, a radon system can be installed to bring the home down to safe level continuously. What are the other benefits of radon removal? Now that your home is safe and our installed system is efficiently keeping your home safe, you may find that the basement or lower level is less “musty.” We have found that pulling radon from under the home structure also does a great job of removing substructure moisture as a result of our system. How about that?! Not only is you home and family safe now. Your home will smell better as well!
