Radon Testing

What is Radon, and why should I test for it?

Radon is a naturally occurring, radioactive gas found in soil and rock. It seeps into homes through cracks in the foundation, walls, and joints. Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon may be present in all buildings, but you and your family are likely to get your greatest exposure at home, where you spend most of your time.

Among nonsmokers, radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in the United States.

Based on U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates, lung cancer due to radon exposure claims about 21,000 US lives annually. In many cases lung cancer can be prevented; this is especially true for radon-related lung cancer.

Radon levels vary by state, region, county, neighborhood and EVEN BY SPECIFIC HOUSE depending on the combination of local ground conditions, specifics of the property construction, and weather.
We recommend that the lowest level of habitable space in every property be tested for radon levels.

We utilizes a third party independent professional laboratory to analyse and report on all Radon test results. In addition, ISC may utilize a secondary test using a continuous monitoring device in order to verify conditions in the test area.
