Radon is a radioactive gas that comes from a natural breakdown of uranium in soil rock and water.  It naturally releases from the ground into the air.  There are no areas of the U.S. that are not at risk of Radon exposure and radon can be found in any type of building; including schools, homes and offices.  Risk of exposure in homes is higher because that’s where most people spend the majority of their time.  You can’t see, smell or taste Radon and because it comes from the ground, it can find its way into your home.  The only way to determine if your home has any level of Radon is through testing. The EPA and surgeon general recommend testing all homes below the third level.  If it is discovered that your home has elevated Radon levels, remediation will likely be recommended.  Acceptable levels can be achieved with proper venting equipment.

The upstate has one of the highest average radon concentrations in the United States. So much so, that most local building codes require the installation of a passive radon pipe in new construction homes. There is no rhyme nor reason for where or when it is found. We highly encourage you to test for radon.

Why Are Radon Tests Important?

The biggest benefit of radon testing is peace of mind. Radon has no smell, taste, or color, and beyond contributing to the development of lung cancer, radon exposure has no symptoms that can be identified by a doctor. That means a radon test is the only way to make sure your home has a safe level of radon.

Radon tests can also save you money if you’re trying to sell your home, because you can provide information about radon levels to potential buyers, ensuring you meet local codes related to radon compliance.

The EPA also recommends that you test for radon when buying a home. That way, if high levels of radon are detected, you can request that the home seller install mitigation features, or you can back out of the purchase by utilizing your home inspection contingency.
