According to the EPA, Lung cancer kills thousands of Americans every year. Smoking, radon, and secondhand smoke are the leading causes of lung cancer and Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, according to EPA estimates. Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that can cause lung cancer. You can’t see or smell radon. Testing is the only way to know your level of exposure. Radon can have a big impact on indoor air quality.
Testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Surgeon General recommend testing all homes below the third floor for radon.
At Best in the West Inspections, my Radon Test consists of a two-day process. First, I place my Radon monitor in your home in the lowest-level of a home that is habitable. For a home with finished space in the basement, the test is placed in the basement; for a home without a basement or with only a 4-foot foundation rather than a full basement, the test would be placed on the first floor. After 48-hours, I remove the monitor, review the results, and provide a copy of the inspection report to you.
Radon is always present, but its level fluctuates constantly. After 48 hours, the average radon level is taken, and if the radon level is found to be at or above 4.0 pCi/L, it is considered “unsafe” by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). If this is the case, the situation can be remedied by radon mitigation.
