According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that can cause lung cancer. In fact it is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. Radon is non-coloured and an odorless gas, and usually enters your home through small cracks and openings. The only way to know the level of your exposure to radon is by conducting a radon test. We, at Drumm Home Inspections, conduct radon testing in Chicago for all properties. Through the test, we determine if your property exceeds the levels set by the EPA.
Our radon test is simple yet effective. We place a monitor in your home for around 48 hours to test the air samples. We then pick up the monitor to check for the results. After our test, you will not be needing a lab test to determine the exposure to radon.
We have a team of technicians who have expertise in radon testing in Chicago. In case the radon level is 4 picocuries per liter or higher, we suggest an action plan and measures that can be taken. Radon level less than 4 picocuries per liter also poses risks and can be reduced. So if you are planning to sell or buy a property, get it tested for radon. If it’s a new home, you can seek information on if the radon-resistant features were sued during construction.
