Radon is a radioactive gas that seeps into homes and buildings through the ground and can lead to lung cancer. Only smoking causes more cases of that disease than radon. Our certified radon testing professionals can make sure that you are safe from this harmful gas. If you are in the market for a new home or building, or are worried about one you currently own or live in, a radon test can lay your fears to rest.

New home

Yes. If you are remodeling above ground and have already had a test, you likely do not need another one, but below ground renovations should always be accompanied by a radon test.

Renovating

There may be some low levels of radon coming from granite in the home, however it is almost certainly not a dangerous amount.
