Radon Testing

Test Before It’s Too Late

No matter where you are in the US, your home may be exposed to dangerous radon gas. Radon is a natural, radioactive gas that is produced when uranium in the Earth’s crust decays and turns into radium.

Tennessee is certainly no exception.  In fact, Tennessee lists several counties which radon levels are above national levels.  But do no worry too much, radon can be mitigated professionally and affordably.  Testing and education are critical first steps, with a variety of available vendors able to provide mitigation services.  To learn more about the Tennessee Department of Health recommendations about Radon in our area, click HERE

Outdoors, radon will naturally dissipate harmlessly into the atmosphere as it rises through the crust. But in homes, it can become trapped, which is dangerous for the health of you and your family. Radon is colorless and odorless, and it is extremely carcinogenic. According to the EPA, radon is one of the leading contributors to the development of lung cancer, behind only smoking. For this reason, regular radon testing is key whether you’re a homeowner, or you’re interested in purchasing a home.
