Learn more about why you should test your home for radon!


Radon is a cancer-causing, radioactive gas that you can’t see, smell or taste. As naturally occurring radioactive materials break down in the soil, radon gas is emitted as a by-product and can collect in the basement or lower level rooms of your house. Because the amount of radon gas being released from the soil varies from house to house, the most economical method of determining if radon gas is present is to conduct a radon test.
