Here are the basics about radon:

Radon is a radioactive gas that comes from the soil.   It is colorless and odorless.

Radon comes from the natural breakdown of the uranium found in most rocks and soils.

Any home, new or old, can have a radon problem.

Radon levels can vary from house to house.

The EPA recommended Action Level is 4.0 pCi/l.   This means that if you have a radon test at your home and the levels come back higher than 4.0 pCi/l you should seriously consider installing a mitigation system at your home.  Mitigation systems average $800-$1200.00.

Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, exceeded only by smoking.

If you've never had a radon test at your home we encourage you to do so.  Call our office at 585-589-5650 to schedule your radon test!
