Radon Testing Service

radon testing service for your house

WHY TEST FOR RADON?  If you wouldn’t live in a home without smoke detectors, you shouldn’t want to live in a home that hasn’t recently been tested for radon. Testing for radon is simple and inexpensive. Radon should be tested at least every two years, or after any construction changes to a home, even if the home has an active radon mitigation system.

If you’re selling, buying, or renting a home in New Jersey, call RAdata today to arrange for a professional radon test.

If you’re testing a home that you own for a non-real estate purpose (not selling, buying, or renting) you can perform your own self-service radon test kit!

  • • Are you involved in a real estate transaction that requires a radon test?
  • • Have you seen radon test kits in the hardware store?
  • • Has a friend or family member advised you to test for radon?
  • • Did you know that radon levels in a home can change over time or due to construction changes?

 

WHAT IS RADON?

periodic table radonRadon is an odorless, tasteless, and colorless gas formed by the natural radioactive breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water. Radon is all around us.  The radon outdoors is diluted by fresh air, but radon can penetrate any type of building and become trapped resulting in occupant exposure to high radon levels.

Radon gas decays into radioactive particles that can get trapped in your lungs when you breathe the air around you. As these particles break down further, they release small bursts of energy.  This energy can damage lung tissue and lead to lung cancer over the course of a lifetime.  The only way to know the radon concentration in your home is to conduct a test!
 

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
