Radon Gas Testing
What Is Radon? Radon is a natural, radioactive gas that originates from the Earth’s bedrock. This gas is odorless and colorless, making it nearly impossible to detect without the proper equipment. Typically, radon will seep into a home through the basement. I will inspect for radon using industry-leading tools such as the 1030 Sun Radon Sentinel to determine the radon levels in your home.
Although radon is a naturally occurring gas in our environment, it's also the second leading cause of lung cancer deaths in the U.S., according to the Surgeon General. One out of 15 homes is estimated to have dangerously elevated radon levels. The Surgeon General and the Environmental Protection Agency recommend testing all houses. Millions of Americans have had their homes tested for radon, and you should, too.
Make sure your home does not have unhealthy levels of radon by contacting Nooks & Crannies Property Inspection, LLC. I offer trusted radon testing certified by the NRPP to inspect in Montgomery Co., MD and the surrounding areas. Our 48-hour home radon test is taken every 30 minutes to ensure thoroughness (a standard test is every hour). Get in touch with me today to learn more about our services!
