Our National Radon Proficiency Board-certified radon inspectors have years of experience testing for the dangerous gas. Radon comes into homes and buildings through the ground and is second only to smoking as a cause of lung cancer. It is radioactive and impossible to detect without a test.
Ensuring that the home or building you currently own or plan to buy is free from harmful levels of radon is of paramount importance.
Radon levels vary based on where the structure is located and how it was built, so its age has no significance.
EPA recommendations only call for a radon test for spaces below the fourth floor, as radon’s weight makes it build up in lower areas.
Though radon may be present in numerous areas, only the lowest spots in your building in Culver City need to be tested for radon.
You can go to your local Culver City hardware store to get a radon kit, but with Environmental Inspections + Solutions you can be secure in knowing the test has been done right.
We will set continuous monitoring devices in the relevant areas and leave them to take in data over a 2 to 3 day period, as per EPA regulations.
Environmental Inspections + Solutions cannot offer remediation services as that would constitute a conflict of interest. We are able to both describe the steps that you should take to rectify the problem and can conduct a test afterwards to ensure those steps have worked.
