Radon Testing

Radon is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, radioactive gas that has been found in homes, schools, and buildings around the world. Radon  comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil and rock and moves up into the indoor air that people breathe. It can also seep into ground water and remain trapped there. Therefore, if a home is supplied with water taken from a groundwater source (such as a well), there is greater potential for a radon problem.  Radon mitigation systems is  a proven method to reduce radon levels in homes and buildings.

Above Grades radon inspection service includes the placement of testing devices to measure the ongoing level of radon in the habitable areas of the home. These measurements evaluate the level of radon to determine if any form of improvement is required.
