Radon Testing

What is Radon?

Arrange for a home inspection service in Otsego, the Twin Cities and Greater Minnesota.

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

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 the second leading contributor to the development of lung cancer, just before smoking. For this reason, regular radon testing is key whether you’re a homeowner, or you’re interested in purchasing a home.

The Benefits of Radon Testing

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.

  • Provide peace of mind for worried homeowners.
  • Ensure the home your selling meets local radon code compliance.
  • Hold sellers accountable before you buy.
