Radon is a dangerous gas that could be lurking in your home without your knowledge. It has been blamed for many yearly deaths from lung cancer. How can you be sure that your family isn’t at risk? Professional radon testing can tell you if the radon levels in your home are dangerous. To identify if the radon levels in the home exceed the take action stage per EPA guidelines, the experts at DS Home Inspection Services, LLC now offer professional radon inspections for your home. You can now know if harmful levels of radon are present in the home to negotiate mitigation if necessary.

Radon is a radioactive gas formed by the natural decay of uranium in soil and rock. It can seep into buildings through foundation cracks and other openings. Without proper ventilation, radon concentrations in indoor air can reach dangerous levels. You can’t see, smell or taste it, so it’s easy to ignore. But radon exposure is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. 

The good news is that in most cases, it’s fairly easy to lower indoor radon concentrations. Although there are do-it-yourself home radon test kits available on the market today, they are not the most accurate. These are charcoal testing kits that have to be sent out to a lab to get results. They can provide affordable results, but it also takes three to seven days to get them, as the homeowner must mail the detector back to the lab and wait to hear back. Certified professionals can help identify how radon is entering the building, seal cracks and install specialized venting. Professionals have been working to improve the reliability of testing devices.

Generally, it is more accurate and more efficient to have a professional radon contractor perform the radon test in your home. Radon testing is easy, affordable, and provides invaluable results that can ensure the safety of your home and your family. We offer radon testing at a discounted rate when added to a home inspection. Every radon test comes with our ninety-day radon warranty at no additional cost. The testing requires forty-eight hours to complete. The prices are $150 with an inspection and $180 as a stand-alone service.
