We use state of the art, precise, highly sensitive, electronic continuous radon monitors considered the most advanced radon measurement equipment along with electronic data loggers.  Our monitors detect any unusual readings of radon caused by extreme weather conditions and our data loggers detect unusual readings by someone opening surrounding windows and doors. Tilt and power sensors detect if the monitor has been moved.  Since you are not in control of the house during the multi-day test, the EPA strongly urges the use of tamper detection techniques when conducting a radon test.  Our monitors and data loggers provide advanced tamper detection that makes it extremely difficult to compromise a test without being detected.
What is Radon? Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that comes from the breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water. Why is Radon Dangerous? Radon causes lung cancer. The EPA estimates that 21,000 Americans die each year from radon-induced lung cancer. This makes it the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer following smoking.  As radon decays, it creates four new elements - collectively known as Radon Decays Products (RDPs) - two of which emit alpha radiation. As these RDPs float around in the air they attach themselves to dust, smoke or other particles which we then breath in. These particles attach themselves to our sensitive lung tissue and the alpha radiation from the RDPs damages the tissue.
Get Your Home Tested for Peace of Mind The US EPA, Surgeon General, American Lung Association, American Medical Association, and National Safety Council recommend testing your home for radon because testing is the only way to know your home's radon levels. Radon levels vary from state to state, county to county, home to home.  There are no immediate symptoms that will alert you to the presence of radon. It typically takes years of exposure before any problems surface.
How Does Radon Enter the House? Through what is called the “Stack Effect,” radon and other soil gasses are literally sucked up through the ground into the house through cracks and other openings in the foundation. What If a Home has elevated Radon Levels? Fixing a home with a radon problem is NOT a complicated procedure. Typically it is one day of work.  A radon mitigation system is considered a home improvement. It not only lowers radon levels but also other soil gases such as Methane, pesticides, moisture, odors and mold. A mitigation system improves the overall air quality of the home.
