Usually the most common question we receive is “why should I test my new home for Radon” The purpose of Radon testing is not to determine “if” your new home has Radon gas, but to determine “how much” Radon gas is present. Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas and is part of our environment. The EPA recommends all home buyers and owners check their homes for elevated levels of Radon Gas. Exposure to elevated levels of Radon gas is a potential cause of Lung cancer. Homes with elevated levels of radon gas can in most cases be easily corrected to safe and acceptable levels. Contractors who are licensed in the State of Virginia can install radon remediation systems that will reduce the indoor levels of harmful Radon gas to acceptable levels.

However, today most home buyers are still unaware of the danger. Fewer homes are being tested year after year as home sellers attempt to cut costs. While elevated levels of radon can be a serious problem, there is a simple solution to finding peace of mind in your new home purchase.
