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.
