Radon Measurement is a simple, non-invasive test that can be conducted in as little as 48 hours to determine if Radon gas is present. The inspector will need access to the home to initially place the measurement device, and to retrieve the device upon completion of the test. An analysis is performed by a certified lab and results are provided generally within 2 days of submission for analysis. An informational brochure on Radon will also be provided in conjunction with the test. Not all inspectors are equal. Certification is not a Maryland state requirement, however, to better service our customers, we have chosen to be certified and recognized by the National Environmental Health Association - National Radon Proficiency Program.

What is Radon?
"Radon is a cancer-causing natural radioactive gas that you can’t see, smell or taste. Its presence in your home can pose a danger to your family's health. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in America and claims about 20,000 lives annually." (www.epa.gov/radon/)
Radon can also be present in your water, gas can dissolve and accumulate in underground water sources and permeate into your drinking water supply. A separate Radon Water Test can be performed to ensure that your water is safe for consumption.
What can I do if Radon is detected?
