Is radon testing essential?
Every building in greater Columbus, OH area has measurable levels of radon. The EPA Map of Radon Zones rates Mid-Ohio as a Zone 1 (highest potential).
Radon is an odorless, cancer-causing radioactive gas. It is produced as a by-product of the natural breakdown of uranium in the soil beneath us. It is the #1 killer of non-smokers in Ohio. It is responsible for an average of 900 lives each year in Ohio. Exposure to radon causes lung cancer in non-smokers and smokers alike.

What is an "unsafe" level of radon?
Every major health organization (e.g., The Center for Disease Control, the American Lung Association, EPA, and the American Medical Association) agrees that radon causes thousands of preventable lung cancer deaths each year.
Do you offer free radon testing kits?
No. This information is too important to trust a free kit. Our technicians visit your property and use digital air & water radon testing equipment. If the amount of radon present puts you at risk, we can mitigate it, then return in 30 days to retest.
My home is pretty new/old. Why hasn't a system already been installed?
Protection is voluntary. Just like vaccinations, seat belts, insurance, sunscreen, and helmets. Since radon is invisible and odorless, builders and previous homeowners may overlook or intentionally omit the investment. The consequences can be grave. Radon is the #1 killer of non-smokers in the United States.
Is it expensive to get radon tested?
To test, we visit your property and set-up digital air samplers. A larger space requires more samplers. The area is tested 24/7 for about 30 days to determine if your radon levels exceed EPA and U.S. Surgeon General’s safe levels. Radon testing costs $150 up to 4000 sq ft. NOTE: This is not the total sq of your home, just the tested area. If your home is 2 story with basement, 2000 sq ft total, then your basement is likely 650 sq ft or so.
My neighbor's home tested as acceptable, mine must be also?
Every building traps radon differently. Radon enters through cracks in your foundation, the porosity of your floor, troughs from waterproofing system, crawlspace, and garage. How tight is your building? Old doors, windows and insulation effect radon concentrations. Your building has a unique radon fingerprint.
