how to test
 for radon

Radon is a colorless, odorless, radioactive, and cancer causing gas. Radon causes lung cancer, which kills more Americans each year than breast, prostrate, and colorectal cancers combined. Radon moves through the soil and enters a home through any crack or opening in the foundation it can find, including gaps in service pipes, the water supply, and construction joints or cavities. No home, whether new or old, is safe from radon.

Secure Radon Testing

why test

for radon

Over 40% of homes in Illinois tested for radon were found to have elevated levels of 4.0 pCi/L and greater. The EPA states there are no safe levels of radon exposure and recommends any home with levels greater than 4.0pCi/L be remedied.  Testing should be done every 2 years, and additionally when there is any renovation, remodeling, or exterior landscaping done, as radon levels can change over time.
