Radon Inspections & Testing
Radon gas is a health hazard that homeowners should be informed about. According to the EPA there is no longer any question—radon is a carcinogen and breathing low levels of it can lead to lung cancer. The only way to know for certain if your family is at risk is to complete the simple process of radon testing in your home. At AccuSpect Inspections we have extensive experience with specialty inspections that include radon. Schedule an inspection now to make sure your home is a safe haven for your family or call (734) 467-7328 for more information.
How Does a Radon Inspection Work?
Our team of certified radon technicians perform the following process:
Radon testing is conducted on the lowest living level of the home, unless there is a basement. If a basement exists, the testing is always done in the basement.
Windows and doors must remain closed during the 12 hours prior to the test and during the test, except for normal entry and exit from the home.
We use a Continuous Radon Monitor. We place the device in the lowest level of your home where it remains for 48 hours, continually taking air samples, and then return to pick up the monitor.
After the test is completed, results are typically available and emailed to you within 48 to 72 hours.
Reading Your Radon Test Results
Remediation is recommended if the radon test shows numbers at or above the EPA’s Action Level of 4 picocuries per liter. If the range is between 2 to 4, you may still want to take action. Usually it is a fairly simple process to lower your level to below 2 picocuries.
