Certified Radon Inspector

Is there radon in your home?

Yes! However, the only way to know if the radon level in your home is safe is to perform a test. Our radon-certified inspectors are ready to perform testing in North Carolina and South Carolina, including Asheville, Raleigh, Charlotte, Fort Mill, Rock Hill, and their surrounding areas.

What is radon?

Radon is the decaying properties of radioactive material in the earth. You cannot see it, touch it, or smell it. Radon has been linked to lung cancer and is the second to smoking. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends mitigation if the radon level in your home has a reading of 4.0 pCi/L or higher. Please see the video below for more information on radon gases.

How do we test for radon?

There are two ways to test for radon. You can choose a passive test using a charcoal testing device, which is inexpensive but time-consuming, and you risk the results being tampered with. The second option is an active test, which is a bit more expensive and requires a certified professional. The good news is that HIC can perform your radon test at an affordable price using our licensed home inspectors, all certified to perform radon testing. We have completed thousands of radon tests in North and South Carolina, including Asheville, Raleigh, Charlotte, Fort Mill, Rock Hill, and surrounding areas.

Knowing you have high radon levels in your home can be scary, but living with it and not knowing, is worse.
