Radon Testing – Greater Boston Home Inspection
Short Term – For Real Estate Transactions
Long Term – For Property Owners
What is Radon? Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that results from the decay of uranium found in trace amounts in soil, rock and water. Radon is the main source of our exposure to all radiation. In fact, 55% of all radiation to which we are exposed comes from radon gas. Outdoor radon is not a threat. However radon gas can enter into homes or other buildings and can accumulate to dangerous levels. Because we spend so much time indoors, exposure to such levels of radon over a long time can pose a serious health risk.
You cannot see, smell or taste radon. The only way to know is to test. Any home can have a radon problem-new homes or old homes-well insulated homes or drafty homes-homes with or without basements.

NOTE: THE US EPA RECOMMENDS THAT YOU FIX YOUR HOME IF THE INDOOR RADON LEVEL IS 4.0 pCi/L OR HIGHER…How high are your Radon level?
