Radon is a naturally-occurring radioactive gas that results from the decay of uranium. Radon is behind only smoking as a cause of lung cancer. It can contaminate homes through basements, foundations, and crawl spaces and build up in the bottom areas of residences. It is vital to ensure that your home or a home you plan to own is not contaminated with dangerous levels of radon.
Environmental Inspections + Solutions will send our technicians certified by the National Radon Proficiency Board to assess radon levels in your residence. We will place an electronic radon measurement device that will test radon concentration over 48 to 72 hours. The findings will be immediately available at the conclusion of the test. We will provide information on methods and costs for radon mitigation in the case of a positive reading. NOTE: List of links missing in original copy
EPA guidelines recommend radon testing only for areas on or below the third floor of a building.
The presence of radon is unrelated to the age of a building; it depends on construction methods and the geology of the site.
No. We will test the lowest area in your residence per EPA protocols. It is possible that we will need to place additional devices based on the square footage and architecture of the structure.
Yes. Although the required equipment is available online and in stores, we can provide an unbiased, professional test.
Environmental Inspections + Solutions utilizes the state-of-the-art Sun Nuclear Corporation 1027 continuous radon monitor. This device will constantly measure the air in your residence for 48 to 72 hours.
Environmental Inspections + Solutions’ radon tests last the EPA mandated 48 to 72 hours.
Environmental Inspections + Solutions does not offer radon remediation in order to avoid any conflict of interest. If necessary, we will give you a full picture of potential radon remediation solutions, as well as provide testing once mitigation is complete.
No. Radon can be present in some areas but not others.
Some locations have a higher likelihood of radon contamination. We recommend radon testing for homes on hillsides or anywhere in Palos Verdes.
Because radon collects in the lower areas of structures, Environmental Inspections + Solutions recommends radon testing for basement conversions, regardless of whether other areas have been inspected in the past.
Probably not. Research suggests that granite features in the home do not emit a dangerous amount of radon.
