Radon Testing

Radon is an invisible, odorless, and toxic gas that can cause lung cancer. Before you invest in a new home, ensure your loved ones are protected with Certified radon testing from Healthy Home Inspections. Don’t make the mistake of assuming your property is safe because radon hasn’t yet been reported in the area.

Radon Facts

The scariest part about radon is that many homeowners are unaware of the potential dangers of the gas. Why should we care? Below are a few alarming facts about this unseen danger:

  • Radon is a radioactive gas that is undetectable by the naked eye; you can’t see, smell, or taste it. To know if it is in your home, a professional radon test must be performed.
  • Following tobacco, radon poisoning is the No. 2 cause of lung cancer according to the Surgeon General.
  • An estimated 21,000 lung cancer deaths are reported every year due to radon exposure according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
  • The EPA estimates that one in every 3 homes in our area has elevated levels of radon. This means many homeowners are affected and don’t know about it.
