Radon Testing FAQ

What is Radon?

Continuous radon monitor Sun Nuclear 1027

Radon is a radioactive gas produced by the natural decay of uranium in the soil.  It is colorless, odorless, tasteless, and chemically inert.  The only way to know how much radon is present in your home is to test for it.    

 

 

 

Why is Radon a Health Concern?

Radon gas decays into radioactive particles that can get trapped in your lungs as you breath. As they break down further, these particles release small bursts of energy. This can damage lung tissue and lead to lung cancer over the course of your lifetime.According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency)…

  • Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S.
  • It is the number one cause of lung cancer in non-smokers
  • About 21,000 people die each year from lung cancer due to radon 

 

 

How is a Radon Test Performed?

Radon levels are measured using a continuous radon monitor.  This is an electronic meter that takes hourly measurements of the radon levels over a 48-hour period.  These readings are then averaged to obtain the final test results which are available immediately. 

 

For the test to be valid, all doors and windows in the house must be kept closed (except for normal entry and exit) for the duration of the test and for a minimum of 12 hours before starting the test.  This is to ensure the test is measuring the worst case condition.
