Testing for Elevated Levels of Radon Gas
Home Inspector in Haverhill, MA
Providing Ridiculously thorough Inspections since 1982
Radon is a radioactive soil gas that occurs due to the presence of naturally occurring uranium in the soil and gravel beneath the home. Exposure to high levels for a prolonged time can lead to a higher risk of lung cancer. Unfortunately, one cannot look at a home and tell whether it will have high radon levels or not.
High radon levels are correctible – but at a cost. This is very often a negotiable issue as the seller cannot sell a home with high radon levels without disclosing this.
We offer radon testing using either canisters (an EPA protocol test) or electronic monitors (monitors are more expensive but they are more tamper-proof and provide much quicker results, among other advantages.
