Radon Inspections

What is Radon

Radon is a radioactive gas that comes from the breakdown of naturally occurring uranium in soil and rock. It is invisible, odorless and tasteless, and can only be detected by specialized tests. Radon enters homes through openings that are in contact with the ground, such as cracks in the foundation, small openings around pipes, and sump pits

Radon Causes Lung Cancer

Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Overall, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. The more radon you are exposed to, and the longer the exposure, the greater the risk of eventually developing lung cancer. Radon is responsible for about 21,000 lung cancer deaths every year in the United States. About 2,900 of these deaths occur among people who have never smoked.

Test Your Home

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection recommends that all homes be tested for radon. Testing your home for radon is easy and homes with high levels of radon can be fixed (mitigated). A buyer must hire a certified business to conduct a radon test.
