Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that can cause lung cancer. You can’t see or smell radon. Testing is the only way to know your level of exposure. Inspector Check It has over 15 years of experience and can ensure your Lowell, IN home is safe. Radon can have a big impact on indoor air quality. According to the Surgeon General Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S.
The initial test for radon consists of 2 testing kits being placed in a predetermined location for a minimum a period of 2-7 days. The results are shipped to a laboratory for analysis. If the results fall within the EPA’s “ACTION LEVEL” a long-term test is usually recommended. A 90 day or longer test is performed in a similar manner and results analyzed. Sustained high levels of radon require a radon mitigation contractor for an action plan (electronic monitors also available).
