Radon is a radioactive gas found in the soil. It can enter your home through the smallest of entryways such as crawlspaces, sump pits and cracks in your home’s foundation. Radon gas is found in every type of home – new, old, commercial, residential, and every type of foundation.
We use state of the art equipment to test your home for radon gas. We set up a continuous radon monitor, which – true to its name – takes continuous radon measurements throughout your test period. Other radon testing methods are approved but can have drawbacks and leave more room for human error or tampering. The test lasts 48 hours you will have results by the end of the day when the radon test is complete.
Nearly 50% of Dayton area homes have been found to have an average higher than the 4.0 pCi/L radon gas action level established by the EPA. Radon testing averages do show that slab constructed homes tend to have a slightly lower concentration, but every type of home is at risk.
