At Alert Inspection Services, we believe in keeping you and your family safe from potential dangers, even those that are invisible. That’s why it’s important to make sure your home is tested for radon gas.
The second leading cause of lung cancer, radon is a naturally occurring gas that can’t be smelled or seen. Exposure to elevated levels of radon gas increase the risk of lung cancer. If left untreated, radon can have damaging effects on anyone who enters and spends time within the structure.
Since radon emanates from the soil, it doesn’t matter if a property is old or new, and many properties have elevated levels of radon. Radon leaks in through your home’s foundation, and below ground walls and floors.
Using a continuous radon monitoring device, our experienced inspectors will check your home’s radon levels to make sure they are acceptable. If your home tests high for radon – at or above the EPA”s action level of 4.0 pCi/L – effective mitigation systems, that reduce radon levels, can be installed in less than a day by qualified local contractors. Check out our Trusted Contractors for our recommended Radon Mitigation Contractor.
