Exposure to radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. Radon is an odorless, tasteless and invisible gas produced by the decay of uranium in soil and water. Radon is a proven carcinogen. Lung cancer is the only known effect on human health from exposure. According to the EPA, about 20,000 lung cancer deaths in the U.S. each year are radon-related.
The typical Radon test requires an indoor air sample to be collected for a minimum of 48 hours. We actually collect two (2) indoor air samples to ensure accuracy. The air sample is then shipped overnight to a laboratory for analysis and the results are usually available within 1-2 business days.
