Radon Testing

SURGEON GENERAL’S WARNING:

Radon Causes Lung Cancer

SURGEON GENERAL HEALTH ADVISORY:

“Indoor radon is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and breathing it over prolonged periods can present a significant health risk to families all over the country. It’s important to know that this threat is completely preventable. Radon can be detected with a simple test and fixed through well-established venting techniques.”

RADON TESTING IS THE ONLY WAY TO KNOW

According to the EPA, every home in Missouri is at moderate to high risk of household Radon exposure. In fact, 1 in 15 home in the United States is estimated to have Radon levels exceeding the EPA’s recommended action level. Those numbers are assessed at even higher occurrences here in Missouri, which are estimated to be 1 in 5 homes. Your home’s age and your neighbor’s test results have no impact on whether or not your home is at risk. Radon levels vary drastically from home to home and the only way to know your home’s Radon level, is to have your home tested.

Getting your home tested for Radon is the first step to ensuring a healthy and safe living environment. Radon testing is a very simple process and our technicians perform in-home testing with little to no disruption to your daily life. Despite the serious health risks associated with prolonged Radon exposure, many homeowners are unaware of their home’s Radon levels. Testing is the only definitive method to determine if you and your family are at risk. Radon testing is a straightforward process, and our certified technicians can conduct in-home tests with minimal disruption to your daily activities.

Our professional Radon testing process involves placing a testing device in the lowest livable area of your home, such as a basement or a ground-floor room. The device needs to be left undisturbed for a specific period, typically 48 hours, to measure the levels of Radon accurately. During this period, it’s important to maintain normal entry and exit routines but avoid leaving doors or windows open for extended periods, which could skew the test results.

In Missouri, where the risk of high Radon levels is particularly prevalent, taking the initiative to test your home is a critical step in protecting the health and well-being of your family. If you haven’t had your home tested for Radon, now is the time to act. Our team is here to help with easy, efficient, and accurate Radon testing services, providing you with the information you need to ensure a safe living environment. Remember, the only way to know your home’s Radon level and risk is through professional testing. Don’t wait until it’s too late—ensure your home is safe from Radon today.

RADON TESTING IS FAST AND EASY

When your testing begins, one of the technicians will set up a continuous radon monitor in the lowest living area of your home and configure it for 48 hours of continual monitoring.

​After the 48 hours have passed, our technician will return to your home to retrieve the monitor and we will begin the process of analyzing your home’s results.

EASY TO READ TEST RESULTS

After we begin the process of analyzing your home’s test results, we will generate you easy-to-read results report that correlates dates and times as well as environmental factors (such as temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure) present with the test readings. This report consists of an easy-to-read hourly chart of the monitor’s readings along with a summary of the findings and our recommendations for the next step. This report is most often delivered to your inbox the same day as the testing monitor is retrieved.
