Radon is a naturally occurring, colorless, odorless radioactive gas that is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the USA. Unfortunately, the only way to determine the level of radon within your home is testing. Fortunately, we are certified to test your home.

The good news is, even high levels of radon can be reduced to levels considered acceptable by the EPA with proper mitigation. *
