Radon Testing

Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that is second only to cigarette smoking in lung cancer deaths nationwide.  Oregon, and especially the Portland area is well know to contain significant amounts of Radon but the only way to know if your building has a Radon problem is to have it tested.

Should I get my home tested for Radon?

While maps are available indicating general radon "hotspots," studies show that radon levels vary significantly from home to home. One home may have more than recommended levels while the next door neighbor's home may have almost no radon emissions. The only way to know is to test. For this reason it is recommended that all homeowners have their homes tested.

How difficult is it to do a Radon Test?

Testing is inexpensive and easy. Millions of Americans have already tested their homes for radon. There are many good home tests available which can be a good indicator of short term radon levels. There are also more advanced, longer duration test methods that we can administer which give a better average of the radon levels over time.

Is it costly to fix a radon problem?

Radon reduction systems work and they are not too costly. Some radon reduction systems can reduce radon levels in your home by up to 99%. Even very high levels can be reduced to acceptable levels.  Most Radon problems can be fixed by sealing unsealed basements or crawl spaces and attaching power fans to forcibly vent the radon gas up and away from the home. It is not an average DIY project and experts warn to make sure to pick your radon mitigation contractor carefully to make sure the job is done right.
