What is Radon?



Radon is a radioactive, colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water. It can be in the air you breathe and enter your home through cracks, gaps, and other holes in the foundation.




Dangers of Radon



Radon Deaths




Radon is a health hazard and is considered the second leading cause of lung cancer, next to cigarette smoking. Since it is colorless and odorless, it’s hard to detect until a radon test is done. Radon is called a silent killer. Many homeowners have no idea how toxic this gas is. Studies show a correlation between breathing high concentrations of radon and lung cancer. Radon also produces radioactive decay products called radon daughters or radon progeny. These decay products are robust and stick to surfaces as dust particles that can easily be inhaled. Inhalation of contaminated dust can also cause lung cancer.



You can’t see or smell radon. Hence, testing is the only way to know your levels. Radon poisoning may be one of the reasons why your house could be making you sick.




How Does Radon Enter Your Home?


Radon In A House

 Radon gas can seep through cracks and other holes in the foundation pores in concrete, and gaps in walls and floors. Common ways for radon to enter your home are as follows:


  • Cracks in the floors
  • Construction joints
  • Gaps in suspended floors
  • Service pipes gaps
  • Cavities inside walls
  • Water supply
  • Cracks and holes in your foundation



Radon Testing 



EPA highly recommends that you hire a professional to conduct the radon test.



The EPA also recommends “consider taking action” when the radon level exceeds 1.9 pCi/L. Radon levels between 2.0 pCi/L and 4.0 pCi/l also carry some risk over long-term exposure. Lowering the radon level greatly reduces the risk of lung cancer.




Any radon levels over the EPA-established 4.0 pCi/L are recommended to take corrective measures ie: installing radon mitigation which reduces the radon gas concentrations in the home. Just because the home has elevated radon levels doesn’t mean it’s a bad home: it just means the radon needs to be managed and reduced to acceptable levels with mitigation.




Radon is a health risk, therefore, the only way to know if the home has elevated levels of radon gas is to have a test done. So take action and test. Call Us Today for your Radon Testing in Greenville, SC

As a new home inspector, I reached out to Scott seeking mentorship, and the information that he gave to me was invaluable, and I appreciate his effort for that. He has outstanding knowledge, and he operates his business very well. I highly recommend using his services. – Hud Malik
