Yes, radon exists in this area.
Radon is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer.
An estimated 1 in 15 homes in the United States has elevated radon levels. High levels can exist in any home, even if neighboring homes have been shown to have low levels.
Radon levels in a home can be lowered below the EPA's recommended level through relatively simple and inexpensive techniques. Testing allows you to see whether you need to take those measures.
Reliable results in 48 hours.
My continuous radon monitors are calibrated and performance tested at approved labs according to a strict schedule.
During a test, the machine is placed in the home for 48 hours. After that time has lapsed I come back for the machine and generate a detailed report on the levels of radon in the home. You can view sample reports HERE.
The machine can sense whether it is being tampered with, so you can rest assured that the results are accurate and precise.
Radon tests need to be done a certain way. As an InterNACHI Certified Radon Tester, I know where to place the machines, how to ensure proper testing envieronments and how to interpret the data collected to ensure you get valid information.
