What is radon and why test for it?
Radon is an invisible, odorless, tasteless gas that occurs naturally in many areas.
The Environmental Protection Agency believes radon is responsible for over 20,000 lung cancer deaths each year. This makes radon gas the second leading cause of lung cancer behind smoking. Because of this, the EPA recommends that all homeowners have radon testing done on a regular basis.
Do you need to test if the home has a radon mitigation system already installed?
YES! The only way to confirm that the mitigation system is working properly and continuing to remove an adequate amount of radon is to test. Radon levels can fluctuate significantly over time so it is always best to test.
