What is Radon
Radon is a cancer-causing radioactive gas that comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon is the number two leading cause of lung cancer. It's dangerous because you can’t see it, you can’t smell it, and you can’t taste it.
Testing is the only way to know your home’s radon levels. We will test your home and if high radon levels exist. Testing is relatively inexpensive and easy, and it is the only way to know whether you are at risk. Every home should be tested for radon. Let our family give your family peace of mind knowing that you're living in a safe environment.
How does Radon cause cancer?
Radon decays quickly, giving off tiny radioactive particles. When inhaled, these radioactive particles can damage the cells that line the lung. Long-term exposure to radon can lead to lung cancer.
If your home tests positive for radon, we will install a Radon Mitigation System, which pulls the Radon from the home. A radon mitigation system is the only way to rid your home of radon.
