Did you know metro Atlanta homes are located in the highest potential area for elevated levels of Radon according to the EPA?
How do our Atlanta home inspectors test for radon?
All radon tests require a minimum of 48 hours and it must be located in the lowest inhabitable part of the house.
We use the latest state-of-art Sun Nuclear electronic monitoring
radon test equipment that are quality checked monthly, and are lab
calibrated yearly. Our instruments sample the radon levels each
hour, and keeps track of any changes in the environment that might
indicate tampering or can skew the results. At the end of the 48 hour
minimum test period, we can generate the report immediately.
Other Atlanta home inspectors typically use charcoal canisters that may not give an accurate reading if the test environment changes and cannot detect any tampering. In addition to the 48 hour minimum test period, charcoal canisters require additional days to return the canisters to a test lab before results can be obtained.
US Surgeon General Health Advisory:
“Indoor radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and breathing it over prolonged periods can present a significant health risk to families all over the country. It’s important to know that this threat is completely preventable. Radon can be detected with a simple test and fixed through well established venting techniques.” January 2005
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends that you test your home to know if you and your family are at risk from radon. Don’t wait, schedule your radon test with us now! Make radon testing a part of your Atlanta Home Inspection.
