The Reality of Radon

Radon is a radioactive gas that forms deep underground from the gradual decay processes of certain naturally occurring elements. The EPA recommends that all homeowners get a radon inspection, but if you are buying, selling, or currently living in a home in certain parts of North Georgia – where radon levels are known to be high – it may be even more important for you have a test performed to check for this invisible threat. The reality is this: long-term exposure to high concentrations of radon is a leading cause of lung cancer in the United States – second only to tobacco use.

Out of Sight but Never Out of Mind

Radon may originate underground, but the gas rises and is able to escape through porous areas of the ground’s surface. From there, radon can enter homes, often penetrating structural gaps and small cracks in the foundation. Radon is odorless and invisible, which is why the threat is often conveniently swept under the rug. But in order to protect your health, your current or prospective home should be tested for radon as soon as possible—and at North Georgia Radon Testing, we’re certified professionals who will get the job done right.

Timely Reports

Accurate Results

A home radon kit can take several weeks to yield results, and sometimes, those results can be questionable. At North Georgia Radon Testing, our testing method is substantially faster—and our professional certifications allow us to generate reports that can be used toward a real estate transaction. After we retrieve the radon monitor, we’ll email a full report of our findings within 24 hours—typically on the same day! Our reports are accurate and informative, and if necessary, we’ll explain the radon mitigation process and provide you with referrals to independent and unaffiliated  specialists.

Preparing for Your Radon Test

North Georgia Radon Testing uses Sun Nuclear 1028 Continuous Radon Monitors for our radon testing services.

In order to obtain accurate test results, the following steps are necessary:

1 – The radon monitor must be positioned in the lowest livable level of the home
2 – The radon monitor must operate continuously for a minimum duration of 48 hours
3 – The home must undergo closed conditions for the duration of the test—meaning that windows and doors to the outside should remain closed (starting 12 hours before testing), whole-house fans should not be operated, and fireplaces should not be used unless they’re the primary sources of heat
Note: During the radon test, heating and cooling systems may continue to be used normally. Residents may also continue entering and exiting the home as they ordinarily would.
