in this carcinogenic gas without even realizing it. When radioactive metals such as uranium,
radium, or thorium break down in soil or groundwater, radon forms. One of the leading causes
of lung cancer, radon is no insignificant matter. Symptoms from radon gas include chest pain
and coughing up blood, so professional radon testing services are important in order to protect
the health of your family and employees. Although many people think home radon tests are
enough, something so important as radon and its ramifications is best reserved for a
professional radon test from a qualified company like Insight Environmental. Restore your
interior to a more healthy state and test your business or home for radon today.
What is Radon
A colorless, odorless radioactive gas that emanates from rock and soil throughout the United
States, radon enters your home or business through cracks in your foundation. Radon tests are
imperative because, for those who do not smoke, radon is the number one cause of lung cancer.
Because radon can cause such serious health problems, a home radon test is not sufficient, but
you should obtain a professional radon test from a professional company like Insight
Environmental. Although not as common to find in well water, radon testing in water will help
you to ascertain the extent of your problem, and whether radon is prevalent in your water.
Symptoms of Radon
Testing your business or home for radon is imperative because this sneaky natural gas can
cause lung cancer, but along the way, it also creates some difficult symptoms if you have been
exposed to it. The experts at Insight Environmental have the proper radon test equipment to
ascertain the radon gas levels and protect you from the symptoms of radon gas exposure. The
symptoms from radon gas include the following:
Shortness of breath
Frequent lung infections
Coughing up blood
asbestos, radon, lead and mold testing Specialists
Because the symptoms from radon can be so problematic, detecting radon gas becomes even
more imperative. Professional radon testing by Insight Environmental places radon test
equipment in your home or office to check the radon levels. According to the Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA), any level of 4 pCi L or higher could be dangerous. If the radon test
equipment finds these radon levels in your home or office, you may need a radon mitigation
system or reduction system that can cut up to 99% of the radon in your home. Since radon
levels can fluctuate, it is a good idea to assess both short term and long term radon test results.
Short term radon tests can measure between 2-90 days and long term tests can assess more
than 90 days. The EPA recommends long term test results of 4 pCi L or higher be corrected.
Professional radon testing and detecting radon gas become even more important if there is the
possibility of mitigating it to such an extent.
Because radon is odorless and colorless, it offers even more of a threat and need for a property
to be tested for radon. But don’t settle for a home radon test. Call the trained local
professionals at Insight Environmental to perform professional radon tests and radon testing
in water services to determine if your home or office has been exposed to high levels of radon
