Radon Gas Inspections in Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio
In recent years, attention has turned to the existence and acceptable levels of Radon in buildings. Radon is a radioactive gas that has been found in structures all over the U.S. including our homes. You cannot see, taste, or smell radon, so testing is the only way to find out the levels of radon in any building. There is real cause for concern: the EPA and Surgeon General say breathing radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer and if you smoke, your risk is even higher.
Why You Need a Radon Gas Inspection
Radon comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water and seeps into the air in a home through cracks and other holes in the foundation such as a sump well. Any building can have high levels of radon. This means new and old structures, well-sealed and drafty buildings, and homes with or without basements. It is believed that approximately 12% of homes in Michigan have dangerously elevated levels of radon. Once detected, however, high radon levels can be remediated.
National Building Inspections provides fast, safe, and thorough radon gas inspections. We use state-of-the-art electronic continuous reading monitors to detect and accurately-read radon levels. The test takes 48 hours and results are known virtually immediately. The monitor is equipped with motion and tamper detectors to ensure accurate results. We urge every home and business owner to have their premises tested for radon.
