Radon is a natural radioactive gas that you cannot see, smell, or taste. Its presence in your home can pose a danger to your family's health.
Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers and the second leading cause of lung cancer in America. Radon is estimated to cause about 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year, according to the EPA's 2003 Assessment of Risks from Radon in Homes.
The U.S. Surgeon General and EPA recommend that all homes be tested for the presence of radon.
Mejaro Inspection Services Co. is a qualified radon testing service, having completed the Radon Measurement Operator Proficiency course. We use a variety of measuring devices placed in the lowest level of the residence for a minimum period of 48 hours.
Should test results show high levels of radon (greater than 4.0 pCi/L) then mitigation is required. Mitigation techniques will help reduce the radon to a safe level in your home.

INDOOR AIR QUALITY
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers not only to the air within a building, but also the air around a building as it relates to the health and well-being of its occupants.
Mejaro tests inside the home in many rooms to quickly identify problem areas such as mold, silica dust, smog, etc. Volatile Organic Compounds - VOC (such as exhaust fumes, perfumes, alcohol vapors, etc). Carbon Dioxide - CO2 (discover possible CO2 buildup or an improperly balanced HVAC system).
Health effects of these pollutants can range from irritation of the ears, nose, and throat to asthma in the short term. Prolonged exposure to these pollutants may lead to more serious issues such as respiratory diseases and heart disease.
Mejaro Inspection Services Co. is a qualified Indoor Air Quality testing service, having completed the International Association of Certified Indoor Air Consultants (IAC2) course. We use a thermal imaging camera and a hygrometer to read moisture levels around the home, and a Pocket Particle AQI 2.0 Sensor to collect samples of the air inside of the home.
