Radon is a radioactive gas that has been found in homes all over the United States. It comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water that gets into the air you breathe. Radon typically moves up through the ground to the air above and into your home through cracks and holes in the foundation. All homes in our area have radon! This means new and old homes, well-sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without basements. In fact you are most likely to get exposed to Radon and it's the second-leading cause of lung cancer.
Testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk for radon. EPA and the Surgeon General recommend testing ALL HOMES below the third floor for radon.
Blue Ridge Home Inspection offers CRM radon testing to ensure error-free testing results in 48 hours.
"Indoor Radon is a national health problem which causes thousands of deaths each year. Millions of homes have elevated levels. Most homes should be tested for Radon. When elevated levels are confirmed, the problem should be corrected." - Surgeon General of the United States Health Advisory
