Radon is the decaying properties of radioactive material in the earth and cannot be seen, touched, or smelled. The EPA has determined that if the level of Radon is found within your home with a reading of 4.0 pCi/L or higher, radon mitigation is recommended. Radon has been linked to diseases such as lung cancer and is, in fact, the second leading cause of the disease.  Please see the video below for more information on radon gases.  Additional information can also be found at ncradon.org.

So how do we test for it? There are two ways to test for Radon a passive test and an active test. The most inexpensive way is a passive test using a charcoal testing device, costing about 13.00 – 15.00 dollars. Typically an active test requires a certified professional; costs can range from 150.00 to 200.00.
