Naturally produced and given off by soil and rock, radon gas can enter buildings through cracks and gaps in foundations, walls and floors. Trapped in areas such as basements and crawl spaces, elevated levels of radon in indoor air have been proven to cause lung cancer.
Because all homes have the potential to be infiltrated by the odorless, invisible gas, it is imperative that your pre-purchase home inspection includes professional radon testing. In fact, the Greater Atlanta area was rated as having an average indoor screening level of greater than four picocuries per liter; the highest in the state of Georgia.
Professional radon testing allows homeowners and potential buyers to avoid future issues while understanding the values and what they mean. For elevated readings, we provide recommendations for mediation that protects the health of you and your family.
