Introduction of Radon:
Radon is tasteless, colorless noble gas, which is the decay product of uranium. Due to its radioactivity, it is dangerous for human health. Although it is one of the densest substance it remains a gas under normal temperatures. Radon is thought to be the largest contributor to background radiation dose, and varies from place to place. Radon gas which comes from natural sources can gather in confined areas like buildings or in basements.
Due to its property of being made up of a single atom, it can easily penetrate through low-density materials like paper, wood etc. and even building materials. The EPA and Surgeon General suggests for installation of radon mitigation system in a property if the test results show a level of 4pCi/L or greater. This does not mean that level of 4pCi/L is safe, even below it can lead to higher risks of lung cancer. Therefore it is necessary that homeowners and property owners think to mitigate their homes from even lower levels of radon gas.

Generally, a radon test lasts for 2-3 days, depending on the structure and the environment. If there is fluctuation in radon levels, it is essential that several days be tested. We recommend that all windows and doors are closed to get accurate and precise results. Since radon gas comes from the ground, we usually place our testing equipment in the basement of the home.
