Radon is a radioactive gas that comes from decomposing uranium in the earth and is shown to be the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. That being said, having a proper test done is very important to the health, and possibly the life, of the occupants in your home. So how can you know if you are getting the best radon test possible?
First of all, we provide radon testing – So please feel free to contact us! Otherwise, be sure that your radon tester is qualified. Having an InterNACHI certified radon tester is a great way to help ensure that the person doing the test is competent.
After that, make sure the test is set up properly. 2-3 off of the floor and 2-3 feet away from the exterior walls is a good general rule to follow. Also, make sure that it is not near any air run appliances (furnaces, driers, etc) or near any openable windows and doors.
