Do you need radon testing for your home or business?  Were you suggested radon testing and are unsure of what radon is?  Are you looking to purchase a new home and want to get the home radon tested before you buy?

What is radon and why should you be aware of radon?

Radon is a radioactive gas that comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in rock, water, and soil.  Radon then gets into the air and can build-up inside of your home.  High radon levels have shown to cause health problems and the EPA and Surgeon General recommend radon testing in all homes below the 3rd level.  Radon testing is the only way to find out what your homes radon levels are.

Are you selling your home and want prospective buyers to know they are buying a home with low or reduced radon levels.  Are you looking to buy a home and are concerned about the radon levels of a prospective house and want to be sure they are acceptable before you make the big purchase?  Maybe you were recently warned about the dangers of radon and feel your house needs to be tested?  These are all reasons you may be interested in radon testing and TeamDaveLogan.com has a qualified radon mitigation contractor.

To determine the levels of radon in your home you can contact a radon mitigation contractor and they will provide you with an in home radon test kit.  There are 2 types of radon testing kits.  Short-term radon test kits generally are in homes from 2 to 90 days.  These are done if radon level results are needed quickly, such as when you’re looking to buy or sell a home and the prospective buyers have requested radon level testing.  Long-term radon test kits last over 90 days and tend to be more accurate measures of year-round radon levels in your home.  If these radon test kits come back with 4pCi or more, it is recommended that you get your home mitigated.  These high levels of radon exposure have shown to cause lung cancer.
