Radon Testing for Homes and Apartment Complexes

Radon gas is odorless, tasteless, invisible – and dangerous. Unfortunately, this carcinogenic (cancer-causing) form of ionizing radiation is commonly found infiltrating homes and businesses in West Virginia and throughout the United States, where an estimated 200,000 Americans die from radon-induced lung cancer each year. The only way to know if the air you are breathing contains radon is to have your property tested.

What West Virginians Need To Know About Radon

What Is Radon?

Radon is a radioactive gas that comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water.

How Does Radon Get into Homes?

As a gas, radon typically gets into the air you breathe by moving up through the ground and into your home or business by seeping through cracks and holes in the foundation or, less commonly, through well water. Once inside, it gets trapped – and stays inside where residents face continual exposure.

Could My Home Have Radon?

Yes. Any home can have a radon problem, whether new or old, well-sealed or drafty, and with or without a basement. In fact, you are most likely to get your greatest radiation exposure at home because that is where you spend most of your time.

How Do I Know If My Home Has Radon?

You cannot see, smell, or taste radon. Yet, radon may still be a problem in your home. Contact us to schedule a radon test to determine if radon is present in your home or business.

Why Should I Test My Home for Radon?

Every home should be tested for radon. If your home is contaminated with radon, simply breathing the contaminated indoor air significantly increases your risk of getting lung cancer. If your home has high levels of radon and you smoke, your risk of lung cancer is especially high.

What Can I Do If Radon Is Found in My Home?

If radon gas is found in your home or business, Appalachian Environmental Testing & Consulting can provide referrals for professional radon mitigation to help prevent the gas from entering your home in the future and perform testing to ensure that it stays out.

Do I Need Radon Mitigation?

The average radon concentration found inside American homes is about 1.3 pCi/L (picocuries per liter). The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends mitigation for homes where the radon level is 4 pCi/L or more. Because there is no known safe level of exposure to radon, you are asked to consider mitigation measures if radon levels are between 2 pCi/L and 4 pCi/L.
